    Not sure if this is the most correct forum, but I looked at the others and didn't see anywhere better to stick this, so forgive me if I'm wrong.

    If they're going to use 100GB, perhaps they could make P&S an easter egg. [​IMG]
    Sounds interesting, but would be far more useful at this point as a backup medium.

    True, that is more exciting. Those discs will hold 100 Terabytes, which is 100 times more again over 100 GB.
    I actually reported on the announcement of the technology behind FMDs on my website just over a year ago: http://forums.jjr512.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=16544

    FMD's have been hinted at for some time now. While it seems like a great product (and the correct one to introduce HD-DVD), it still looks to be years out of development. I would rather wait for that than trying to adopt a new standard for encoding for DVD right now. Making alot of DVD players obsolete is not a wise move. I mean, we all want to get our hands on a HD-DVD as soon as possible, but not at the sacrifice of our current gear.

    I am not worried about a format better than becoming widely availble and well supported by the studios anytime soon. The studios are not going to support an HD-DVD technology until they have milked DVD for all it is worth, and it will be a while before they will feel they have done that.

    If a movie is not available in OAR, than it might as well not be available at all.
