Your argument is invalid.

EDIT: first consumer blurays were created in 2003, not 2002. I just saw that wikipedia link.

PROTOTYPE

The first prototype computer was created by Babbage in the 1800s and built by Babbage's peers from 1889 to 1891. It was the difference engine. Would you count that as a computer?

Alse, soo the large time between first prototype (1820s) to final, working display (1890s)

If Sony revealed Blu-Rays 6 years before they went mainstream, then why don't we know what the next-gen storage tech is? It's been 12 years since Blu-Ray has been introduced!

Not to mention that Blu-Ray still costs an arm and a leg...

If you read my whole post you would see

Then
Quote:

Which I corrected in the edit.

Consumer blurays are almost 10 years old. You can't say we shouldn't keep using floppy disks because they are 10+ years old but we can still use bluray because that is older than 10 years old (for the prototype) and the consumer blurays will be 10 years old in just under 7 months time.

We do, it's going to be SSDs and flash drives. Some company (I can't remember which one) recently released a 50GB flash drive that's capable of 250 MB/s read and 180 MB/s write. And I do mean megabytes per second, not megabits.per second.

Agreed. How is it holding them back by having an extra option to add a blu ray. Protectionism of itunes movies basically. No surprise, although I disagree with their decision.

My bad, I was thinking of the 360, which is closer to 7 years I guess. Regardless, Blu-ray was released in April, 2003, with movies following shortly after (albeit slowly at first). BD-ROMs for PCs weren't released until 2006, maybe that's what that's what people are referring to?

you do realize Blu-Ray videos are better quality than the 1080p stuff on iTunes? Step backwards end of discussion
