Ah, so here we get to the nitty gritty of naming products. The point is, companies know that a small percentage of people are like those you find on this site. Average consumers are not the most tech-savvy people you'll find. It has nothing to do with laziness or stupidity. Some people simply don't have hobbies involving technology. Companies want to create a new name and a new identity for their products.
And for those reading, I'm not siding with HD-DVD or Blu-Ray in this particular thread, especially considering it's about a graphics comparison, I'm just offering an objective view. It's just frustrating to read all these fanboyish or baseless opinions.
