Not to mention the worst part of discs: having to get off your ass every couple hours to swap out discs. Add to that the clutter of a bunch of discs around, people with bad habits like stacking them on top of each other outside of the case, putting them in the wrong case, touching them with their fingers etc.Inconvenient, clutter and easily damaged/obsoleted when the players go away. Time to go. I don't know why I bothered but a few years back I bought a bluray player. I've rented exactly one video to try it out. Since then I just use my 150Mbps internet connection and creativity. Don't have to go to a store twice (once for the rental once to return) every time I want to watch something. The day it is available I have it no waiting for it to come back etc.
The days of publishing as a useful business are gone. Books make sense because some people still like the feel of paper but for music and video there is no value added, actually negative value added since it is less convenient than downloading.
