High-definition: 10 things you might not know

I just posted the article High-definition: 10 things you might not know.

High-definition was already used as a term back in the thirties
Back in the thirties many already talked about high-definition. Now we want the perfect image and sound quality, but back then they…

Consumers are confused because of the different standards and resolutions Most ‘consumers’ are idiots any way. I don’t see how hard it is to understand TV resolutions or different video standards. I understand all this crap and have for years and I’m baked out of mind most of the time. I guess they don’t get the ‘Joe Six Pack’ label for nothing :S

Being part of the BDA asks for a big wallet
The description given explaining this one makes it sound like the BD-A are running it exactly like the church of Scientology. :r

Disks made from corn? Nice! What makes anything derived from corn eco-friendly? Do you know that we might lose all the water on earth if the corn grower’s lobby has its way? Are you ready to trade pollution for disappearance of water? Heck, don’t people buy disks so that they can archive or access their media for at least 20 years to come? Now we already have the disk eating fungus. What next? Special antiseptic lotion for your blu-ray disks. Corn, my ass :r

retailer “that will be $$$$$$$$ sir” dumb ass cutomer “thank you where do i plug it in ?” retailer “that socket on the wall the other thing you are being ripped off for sir " dumb ass customer " ok no problem i am conditioned to do this as i am now unable to think for myself bye bye” :+

Why does this article read like it was written by a 5 year old? I figured it was translated from Japanese or something using babelfish. lol

“sufficient storage capacity”? wtf… my tv doesn’t have a hard drive… what the heck is he referring to?

I am going to shamelessly link to my own blog here, but if you want to know more about the history of HDTV and why North America is seeing a smoother uptake than Europe, head over here: http://hdtvspace.blogspot.com/2008/04/why-world-doesnt-need-hdtv-pt1.html

I didn’t know that Blu-ray discs could be made of corn, but like the other poster, I don’t think that it’s that great. You get discs made of corn while people in poor countries are paying three times more than they used to for grains. http://hidefology.com

You are stupid.
