In reply, how many people have BluRay writers in their computers? Lots of laptops do not even have DVD drives anymore.

I'm not as gloomy about this technology as DB appears to be. If it can be as reliable and robust as current CD/DVD, its a good candidate for archival backup. It could also bring back and open up a new market for carousel disc players. If the studios can get creative (can't we at least hope?), they could release compilations with 50 to 100 movies on a disc, similar to what they do now with two to four movies on a single DVD. With ISP's looking to charge per-bit download (the high-tech equivalent of a gold mine), it may ultimately become the less expensive option.

A dead end, for two reasons. a) People are increasingly downloading media rather than having shelves stacked with CDs/DVDs/BluRay etc b) Access speeds are the key and rotating mechanical memory is just too slow
