    Question Apple: Blue Ray or HD DVD ?
    Just curious if anyone knows what Apple is going to put in their machines for the next Gen DVD players.

    both technologies are going to have to keep up with Versatile MultiLayer Disc

    New Medium Enterprises unveils the highly anticipated pre-industrial Versatile MultiLayer Discs, the next generation HD Disc & Drive containing 20GB of storage capacity. VMDs use the current Red Laser technology, so it's easier for DVD factories to switch over. The company is set for launching production and sales of 15 GB, 20 GB, 25 GB and 30 GB Discs & Drives by Fall 2005. The drives will be inherently backward compatible with the existing pre-recorded and recordable DVD and CD formats.

    I swore they announced support for one of the two, I'll need to do some searching to see if I can find it.

    well I guess burners won't be affordable for another 3-4 years so, I'm not going to wait for that...

    A regular dual layer dvd has enough storage for me...

    Well the backers for HD-DVD just got the support of several large film companies. Thats a huge blow to Sony and the Blue Ray camp. The film companies are the start of adopting a new standard like that. It did it to VHS (Sony again with Beta) and then again to DVD (VCD was attempting to gain ground then) Now HD-DVD. Only time will tell for sure though.
