R.I.P. HD-DVD

How to watch porn at work safely.  Schadenfreude.I don’t know how many of you pay attention, or even care – but there is a war going on right now. A war between formats. HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray. It’s the high definition format war for what kind of DVDs are going to be sold for $4 in bargain bins in Best Buy in 9 years. Recently, Warner Bros. studio made a choice to go exclusively Blu-Ray. Along with Sony (who created the technology) and other studios (like Fox) soon to follow, it looks like HD-DVD is going to become this generations’ BetaMax.

But it wasn’t because of the studios that were jumping on board. Oh no. Experts were saying that HD-DVD was going to be the little “Thomas the Train Engine” and think he can all the way uphill.

Nope. The death toll rang it’s last this week – porn studios have decided to go Blu-Ray exclusive.  So to get high definition T&A in 2009 – you’re only gonna have one option.  If you think I’m joking, the porn industry correctly predicted the following events:

  • The desire of men to pay for online porn.
  • The desire of men to have really f-ed up fetishes, that they will pay a lot for to be able to have access to.
  • The desire of men to want a good looking haircut at non-salon style prices (lesser known, but still true)
  • The desire of men to want to see naked women in as high a definition as possible.

And there’s nothing anyone can do about it now.  Anyone who purchased an HD-DVD player – go ahead and give it to the kids.  Maybe even put it on the shelf of that closet you don’t go to, and wait about 17 years to pull it out.  It would be the equivalent of Dad pulling out a Betamax player today.
