Sending HD quality family videos to family that they can just pop into the bdr under the tv. But macintosh never was a content production platform was it?
You know, authoring media like DVDs and BRDs is a bit different than popping a disk into the drive and yelling burn. Creating HD content and authoring and burning BRDs is possible and fully capable on a Mac, with professional content creation software. There is just no way to watch a BRD on a Mac. At least AFAIK.
