I am all about moving forward and advancing technology but DD is the way of the future
, not disks. Blu Ray will have a shorter life span that DVD when people realize that movies dont look that good that it warrants re-buying all the movies in your collection so you can have a couple extra features. I for one just bought an upscaling DVD player and it works just fine.
I will assume this means Direct Download? This is the way of what future? When Comcast is the only ISP in the country (which is how they want it), our download speeds will be so severely limited that we will be waiting for hours for a movie to download or stream. I posted on another thread http://www.overclock.net/software-ne...crowd-fcc.html
in this forum that Comcast throttled my download speeds to 5 KB/s. Let's see - if a high-def movie is 5 Gigabytes, that should equal 5,242,880 Kilobytes. If I'm wrong, I'm sorry. Anyway, assuming we keep a 5 KB/s download rate, that equals ~291 hours, or 12 days, to download a movie. What a crappy future.
EDIT: I have no idea how large a downloadable hi-def movie is. I'm just using 5 GB as an example.
