Sometimes I feel like technology is moving far too fast these days. HDTV is here, and while I can not say it is ready for prime time, I certainly can't afford a HDTV set, and if I could, could not yet justify it do to the limited programming thus far. So while at this point it is a toy for those with copious ammounts of disposable income, in 5-10 years it will be commonplace. Now it's not that I think that is a bad thing, I think it's great, but I can't help bu be a little bothered by the fact that my collection of DVDs is going to be obsolete so soon. With movies already being broadcast over HDTV that have a better picture than my DVDs do, well, it's a little annoying really. Sure HD-DVD will likely become a reality at about the same time as HDTV becomes common, but what then? Am I going to have to rebuy all of my movies in a new format so soon if I want the best quality available? I like techonolgy, I really do, but I grow weary of the accelarated upgrade cycle we have these days. It started with computers, and now it's spreading to everything. I can't help but wonder, will HDTV last for the 50+ years that NTSC did, or will we all be upgrading again in 15 years or less?
