This.

Plus I think disks no matter the format is dead tech.

Oh wow how great, push for something and dont give people a choice, at least we have external drives to go by.
Clearly Apple are the lords of the technological world and whatever they want happens. -_-

I'm betting that's a long ways off.

If 4Kx2K Blu-rays become the standard in the next few years (they did add compatibility to HDMI 1.4) those files will be 50-100 GB per movie, and then the post office will once again have the cheapest data transfer rates around.

There is no fee for using a Blu-Ray drive. Unless you mean "the price" in which case you're right. And yeah they sell inexpensive USB DVD drives, for how long after this announcement? And, since when did USB DVD Drives play HD content? Ah, they don't. With no HD-DVD, and now no Blu-Ray, an Apple users only choice for some serious HD content is iTunes.

How can you not see the obvious? Are you in the Reality Distortion Field?

+1
I hate companies which push to change what other people want, It's like forcing someone into a dark corner and asking them to comply to their demands.
Sure we download alot these days and we also purchase things but look at these large 25GB movies coming out on blu-ray, I'll Finnish that download in 8+ hours but If I got a Blu-Ray disc all I need to do is put the disc In and I'm off to go, I could even Rip the CD if I wanted to. The same thing with games which are becoming considerably larger yearly.

I'm not sure if this was sarcastic or not, but I am going to assume it is because of the "-_-" at the end.

Before the iPad, there was maybe 20-30 tablet computers. After the iPad there were hundreds.
Before the iPhone there was maybe 15-20 touch screen smartphones. After the iPhone there were hundreds.
Apple was the first companies to get rid of floppy drives
Before the computer mouse was mainstream no one really used them. After Apple started using them, they were everywhere.

I meant the licensing fee they would have had to pay Sony. The consumer doesn't pay that, the company selling the product does. I never said USB DVD drives play HD content, but DVD drives and bluray drives are the same size. If Apple stopped putting DVD drives in their laptops because they wanted people to use iTunes, they wouldn't have sold external USB DVD drives.
No, they will still have plenty of choices. Youtube lets you stream HD movies (full movies) for a price, so does Netflix and many other online streaming companies. At the moment (and probably for another 5 years or so) bluray quality will be better than streaming quality, I do know that.

By the way, you have said in a few thread you hate Apple and will never buy anything from them. Why are you in this thread? It won't affect you in anyway that they aren't going to use blurays and the fact that they are getting rid of built in optical drives.

EDIT: To all the people complaining about this and are actually going to get a Mac. Buy something like this

http://www.pcmag.com/article2/0,2817,2402405,00.asp

It's compatible with Mac so you shouldn't have a problem.

Oh wow you're like 1,000 Steelboms rolled into one user account.

Except not objective in the slightest.
