    Echo Bridge- The problem and the solution...

    From what I understand Miramax doesn't really exist anymore. Its just IP owned by a group of investors looking to make the most money auctioning off the IP. Therefore, I'm not sure said group cares much about Miramax's "reputation." If they did, they would have accepted a bit lower bit from...

    I liked the HD DVD interface and DRM setup far better than Blu-ray. However, the flakiness of disc manufacturing was always a concern for me. It seemed they never could get the manuf process down just right with lots of discs causing problems due to actual physical issues not just a...

Bad move, Sony, and it is going to cost you and other companies that try...

    Blu-ray Glitch List - Titles you might want to avoid.
