Submission + - There is no HD DVD, Only DVD in BOTH Formats->

cybrthng writes: "In a single statement Collins made in the now famous "We're not at war with Bluray" article there was one nugget everyone failed to grasp and I quote: "Foremost is compatibility. All new movie titles from Universal and soon Warner will be combination (or twin-format) discs — HD DVD on one side and standard DVD on the other. This means that HD DVD discs will also play on older DVD players, which is crucial for portability.". No Distinction between HD-DVD or DVD means a single SKU with both movies and complete market domination over night. (Well, after re-tooling of fabs). Not only that but its one heck of a segway to allow people to adopt HD-DVD players at their own pace without risk of obsolescence."

To qualify Your state/municipality must have net meetering arrangements."

I have yet to see any problem, however complicated, which, when you looked at it in the right way, did not become still more complicated. -- Poul Anderson
