We're arguing about which 1 of the 1000 different ways Apple will try to profit from "banning" Bluray from it's macs is more probable.

I personally think iFilms, a direct copy from iTunes but instead it sells Blurays for $60 for a one time stream, is most likely.

well, it's up to you if you want to buy their ifilms, no one is forcing you to. you make it sounds like profit is a bad thing, the fact is, every company out there also thinks about how to make their profit bigger, samsung, nokia, htc, acer, hp etc, their target is more profit, it's business as usual man, there is nothing wrong with it.

supply and demand 101, the reason why it's still expensive is because the demand for it is still high, if people stops buying it because they think it's too expensive then the price will going to drop till it get more demands.

You do know Apple sells movies in iTunes. And good quality as well.

It's not a $60 one time stream either.

If you ran a corporation wouldn't you do the same thing if you could?

Microsoft recently made Windows Media Center a paid add on and I didn't see anyone complain about that. Even before they made it a paid add on you could also buy/rent movies to stream from them, long before Apple did it.

your point is moot.

and they cannot charge 60 dollars for one time stream, they have to stay competitively unless they they completely lock their macs and only allow itunes media to be played.

yo realize that YOU CAN STILL EXTERNAL DRIVES (for the 100th time!) right? even without that, you can still download movies online from stores like amazon, etc.

so no, they won't gonna jack up their prices just because of phasing out of internal drives.

you can buy a mac but you cannot buy a 70 dollar drive? are you kidding me? if you are concern about prices you are not going to buy a mac in the first place.
