Giroud and Harrison I think you are both right! There will always be those people that will need to have a physical thing to hold that is precious to them and there will always be those people that don't care about that. So I predict that both flash memory and Internet downloads will be the next wave. Bandwidth is the issue with these - but that will be solved sooner than later.

As far as standards though, BD has won this round. HD-DVD will not come back Toshiba has clearly stated that. They are not doing any development or production on any HD-DVD equipment or discs. The industry will not pick it up if no leader runs with it.

Toshiba should open up the HD-DVD spec to the open source community. THAT would be very interesting, indeed!

But what would they get for opening up the spec? They had spent alot of resources to develop HD-DVD, business wise it's better to keep that stuff secret.
