Who cares?

Well I do and I'm sure there must be someone else who has waited for the format war to end, so as to not end up with this centuries Betamax.

I forgot to post this with it, the article also goes into type 1.0 and 1.1. Can be handy for anyone going to buy one thinking they are getting a bargain whereas what they are getting is something that has inferior features.

The war might end and then again might not, but looks like a turning point perhaps with WalMart last Friday declaring it wouldn't stock HD-DVD.

So since it's a money saving website I thought I'd post something in misc. that could have an affect on ... saving money I suppose. It's not like I launched it into 'deals' or something.

Basically I'm hoping that in the next 24hrs I will know which is going to be the winner ... or it's back to holding off.

Cackles, a 'new' thread has appeared about this twice a day for the last few days.

Ah well, was news to me ... and yahoo as well seeing as it was on their site less than 2hrs ... which is some comfort ... I think ...

A valid report I think.

It will be old news to the tech-buffs who keep up with the latest stories, but for the less tech-savvy amongst it may just stop them buying a HD-DVD player.
