I've been covering the Leopard launch for the last three weeks and will now wrap it up. There have been some issues with the new OS, but nothing critical, and it appears to be a near-flawless launch. Moving to a more interesting battle, Black Friday is coming up and it looks like the HD DVD folks are planning on nailing the Blu-ray folks to the wall. Finally, Phoenix Technology is back, and they have a really interesting idea about how we all will be using Linux on our more-secure PCs shortly.
Disney LOVES Blu-ray... they are not upset with it at all. Just last week they were talking about how great Blu-ray is at the Blu-ray festival and how upset with HD-DVD they are..
The Toshiba HD-DVD players look more like a desperate move than a good strategy. What major manufacturer would want to make HD-DVD players now that Toshiba dropped them down to $100?! There is no money to be made there.
BTW, a decent up-converter from 1080i to 1080p will NEVER look as good as a straight 1080p set up with no conversion.
