I bought a vivid DVD a long time go (Adam, I think you were with me when I bought it). It was when DVDs were quite new. I really didn't like the multiple angle thing on the pron. When I changed angles, it was almost like a totally different scene. They were in different positions and doing different things. Maybe Vivid has improved that feature since then?

I just heard from a co-worker that DVD's are going to be phased out in as little as a year. Apprently there is a new medium being introduced and some people like Blockbuster want to implement this system immediately.

Naw.. on the news said Blockbuster that they are phasing out VHS and having it all DVD's.

DVD players dropped far to quickly in price, I can';t help but think that a new format isn't far away when you can purchase a player for less than a vcr.

Technology always drops in price quickly.

In my marketing plans class today my teacher asked the class how much Polarized Televisions cost.. well no one knew, so he said $32,000 and now you can get them for around $5,000. I think that's what the tv make is called.. all i know is Panasonic were the first to design and distribute them.. my bad if I got the name completely wrong..

but that's just an example.. and the price only dropped over a few years.

They won't be phased out in less than a year, but they will see their decline eventually.

New technology is proving to be a bitch to implement. While DVD players are very cheap, most people will be content to keep their DVD player and most likely resist having a new format imposed on them in less than a decade.

Just look at the whole DAT and Minidisc player thing that happened in the early 90's. They were supposed to be the standard, and now haven't really made anywhere near the impact they were supposed to have made. And they haven't come anywhere close to replacing CD's/

Damn straight. Open source, hackable, customizable, generic, wireless data storage devices. Hopefully this is where it will go, and I will seriously have one implanted onto my body so I don't lose it and it cannot be stolen.

They have started phasing out VHS tapes at HMV. Its 2004.

Yeah

VHS has a small section where as DVD has the rest of the store lol.

It's kind of when BATA and VHS were head to head.. BATA slowly phased out.. that was in the late 80's.

I remember wanting to rent Jason Takes Manhattan and was pissed bc it was only on BATA.. iwas about 9 years old or so lol

I find it funny how this sort of thing could happen, yet the same media companies complain, sue, and jail people in the states for the transferring of that media over mediums like KAZAA.

:rolleyes:

money grubbing assholes.

the whole beta/vhs thing was a shame because beta is actually a whole lot higher quality as i recall. once again, the best technology rarely gets the biggest market share.

it was only marginally better, but also the tapes were physicly smaller. Beta concentrated on its production line equipment instead, leaving me SOL with almost every episode of peewees playhouse on useless tapes when my player died.

Didn't help that Sony kept the rights to themselves.

They did the same thing with the MiniDisc too at first.

And this only happened because Sony decided to be greedy and hoard the technology to themself.

there were many reasons why beta failed ... mostly because it didn't deliver what the consumer wanted/cared for.

yo i was just in a BATA shoe store the other day!

it was cool, i was going to buy a pair of boots there but they didn't have my size

what kind of shoe store doesn't have all the sizes of new display boots?

friggin' store

i ended up buying a pair of mckinley's from sportcheck

i buy boots every 3-5 years

it usually seems like a good interval

I was going to mention that too.

I think the whole MD vs. CD debate has a lot to do with politics as well. Clearly, MD's are the better medium. They're smaller, they don't skip as much, and you can record over them more than once.

The Beta vs. VHS debate is exactly why people are saying this new medium is supposed to corner this market. Sony kept the rights to all Beta products, and apparently this new medium is supposed to be a completely open copyright whereas DVD's aren't.
