HD-DVD is Dead

Toshiba, one of the last major makers behind HD-DVD has apparently thrown in the towel on the format. The NY Times has an article on it if you are interested. All this news comes on the heals of Walmart dropping the format. I don’t think I need to tell you how influential Walmart is even if you hate their guts. It will be interesting to see how actual sales go for Blu-Ray now that is going to be pretty much the standard. It will nevertheless, have a long way to go to outfox the dvd, which is still very much the standard.
