Around where I live, the volunteer fire company donation is also optional. They will always come to your house if you call 911 in need of help, however, if you didn't make the donation that year, you get charged at least four figures for their services. The donation is a bargain, and you'd be an idiot not to pay it. "South Fulton's mayor said that the fire department can't let homeowners pay the fee on the spot, because the only people who would pay would be those whose homes are on fire." It's almost like buying health insurance only when you get sick, how would the insurance (or fire) company survive?

I think Blu-Ray will get passed by. Sony's crybaby bitchy attitude killed the last HD optical possibility. Their format war postponed the inception of HD optical media too long, and prices have been steadily too high for movies ever since because they are trying to make up the costs of this war (you don't think it really costs that much more to make a Blu-Ray vs DVD?). Now, hopefully we will move to solid state media storage, such as Secure digital ROM or some variant, where the physical media size is much smaller and more robust. I still think people want to own physical media, just not in $25-$30 optical formats.
