Its no secret that use of optical drives is falling off the cliff. I just hadn’t realized how close we are to hitting the rocks below.
I’ve been watching a poll over at videohelp.com. The main question was, Have you bought a blu ray burner? And of course, very few respondents have them, and only a tiny percentage plan on buying one in the future.
The most interesting result was from the last answer offered: Don’t have any burner installed. The poll has been going on for a while, and with well over 500 votes in, 66% are saying that they don’t have any optical burners installed in their computers.
The members at that site are fairly knowledgeable about video and you would think many would have some interest in ripping dvds and blu ray. Some might have a dvd-rom or blu ray rom installed, but those types of drives are not all that common.
