    DVD is dieing its creators have set out to destroy it.

    Many of the original inventors of DVD ie. panasonic and sony ect ect have released a new formate that can fit upto 50GB on one standard size disc... The new formate is called Blu-ray disc (BD). TriStar distributors are realsing there movies on BD next year and it is said to be the beginning of the end for DVD. Blu-ray is perfect for uncompressed high quality movives, a poo load of data and HDTV, HDTV is (high definition television) which is big in Japan and is slowing and fastly gaining popularity in the west..

    My website explains everything you need to know about Blu-ray disc..

    Aaah, change the font from Times New Roman to Arial, for example. Also, a white backround is not great. Have a white background for everything but have the text in a table and have that slightly off-white, i.e. colour #FAFAFA.

    I'll design that table system for you if you want.

    Interesting new technology for sure.

    By the way, the sound you hear are the 'buy now' buttons being pressed at registrars all over the world, as domain speculators rush to grab all the good 'bluray' domain names.

    Postmaster, I was just pointing out that whenever a new technology, product or trend comes to life, that domain speculators (*people who buy or register domains with the intention of selling later for a profit) always rush out to register all the associated domains with that technology/product/trend. It's a sort of land rush for a particular type of name.

    Sorry for any confusion. I was attempting to be funny/sarcastic, because I've played the domain game a bit myself, but anybody not familar with that business would probably be scratching their head at my statement.

    Nice site by the way. I learned a lot about the technology by spending some time there!

    also might I add that, yeah its like mania when a new thing comes out and everyone goes crazy but there is a fat chance it could lead to know where..... but there is still a chance it gets big but I think for a domain registeration fee its better then placing your bets at number 10 at roulett

    50 GigaBytes.

    Thats quite a staggering number. Would the perhaps, be backwards compliant? Meaning could the new bluray drives read original DVD's?

    If so, it could very well be a step in the right direction.

    I'm kind of disappointed with the 50 GB number. I was hoping for at least an order of magnitude. A single side of a DVD using two layers is nearly 100 times that of a CD. This blu ray technology isn't even 10 times a DVD. 'tis a shame!

    Yes blu-ray disc players (bd players) will be ablke to read DVDs.... even though the laser is totally diffrent bd uses a blu laser to read the disc and dvd uses a red one... But the bd players will deffinantly be able to read dvds too because there is still a massive dvd market at the moment and many of the inventors of bd also helped create dvd and there is already a bd player by sony and that plays dvds....

    50GB is impressive but just emagine how much data you could fit with compressed files on there too... For this day and age 50GB is enough.....

    wow seems intersting, I am gonna look into it, Although I doubt dvd will go away for some years because it will take many years for the price of these discs/players to go down and for regular people to afford it, thats How dvd was, it was like $600 for a standard dvd player now you can get em for $35 for a overall dvd player. But it makes it seem very neat, that means better quailty for movies, more content can be stored, and lots of other things! hope to see this within a few years on the market for a decent price and not a jacked up one
