The next-generation disk that wasn't.

Byte of the Apple iTunes Movies Outsell HD-DVD and Blu-Ray Disc - BusinessWeek:
Interesting statistical aside from the Jobs keynote on Tuesday. Apple has sold 7 million movies since the, and yet that number has been more or less deemed a failure. But, thats a million more than the six million Blu-Ray Discs sold as of the end 2007 according to Home Media Research, besting HD-DVD by a near 2-to-1 margin. MacDailyNews points out that iTunes Movies hit the 7 million mark after 15 months, besting the 18 months it took Blu-Ray out hit the six million mark.

It's not just me that's said it before: No-one but the Industry wants a new disk format. The future might just be plain DVD plus HD digital-only.
