Funny part is once you copy it, you can now make copies of the copy and so on, which makes all this DRM just a pain in the ... it solves nothing and usually never works right.

I beleive it is of DVD quality.

Interesting read. I wonder if Universals on format of Blu-ray would be a little premature at this point in time. As Blu-ray players are still above the $100 mark, I don't think the masses are ready to give up DVD yet.

Good on them for doing the bundles though!

This member of the masses is waiting for the $100 bluray players to hit Canada. I bet you will see a jump in bd players this Christmas. With HDTVs in the $1000 range the player will be an easy sell for an extra $100 (well, in the US anyway).

I have seen BR players in the $150 range without a big sale, so figue on a $100 BR for Boxing day sales, but they will be the older models. I think I am going to buy an Oppo when the time comes to get one. The new special edition is now available but way too much for me and I won't need the better analog outs anyway.

Anyone needing a new TV may find some bundle deals. I've seen a regional chain that has a 50 inch 1080p Panasonic plasma for $1100. They also include a free Pansonic BlueRay player with all Panasonic plasmas over $1000.

It seems some of the latest offerings on Blu-Ray are becoming quite tantalizing. I got an advanced copy of "Terminator Salvation" and the package includes "Three" discs. 1. The "Theatrical Version"
2. The "Director's Cut" (both on Blu-Ray AND lossless audio) and 3. The digital copy for PC's.

The "Director's Cut" is three or four minutes longer and I preferred watching it because it avoids all the previews and advertising that are on the "theatrical version".

Gah, I hate flippers. And dual-layers on both sides. Last time that was tried with DVDs, we got a bunch of TV series discs which wouldn't play because of obvious physical manufacturing defects.
