Blu-Ray

About a year ago I broke down, violated my pledge to stay out of the HD format wars, and bought an HD-DVD player (the competitor to Blu-Ray) at Costco.

A month or two later the HD-DVD consortium admitted defeat and bowed out.

So now I have a bunch of HD-DVD movies and a player.  Yet another obsolete media format to add to the shelf next to my Laserdisc collection.  🙂

At that point I pledged to ignore Blu-Ray, and do what I should have done from the start – just wait for network distribution.  I’m sticking to that so far.

Now – here comes the crazy – I pre-ordered Firefly on Blu-Ray from Amazon when it was announced months ago.  I’m planning to buy it even if I never own a Blu-Ray player.
Why you ask?  Because any chance I get to make the folks that cancelled Firefly look bad I will take.
