Editorial I hear often that when something new appears that "competition is good". The primary reasons competition is seen as good, are: it drives down prices; it gives consumers more choice; it pushes technology forward, quicker. Competition is not good because: competition is why consumers have to choose between HD-DVD and BluRay; competition is why DRM exists; and more. In this article, each of the supposed benefits of competition will be looked at in more detail.

BluRay, HD-DVD? Who needs 'em?

I'm refusing to "upgrade" to either standard. As are a lot of people I know... heck half the video stores I know aren't even carrying either one, not to mention all the hassle of buying all new kit to ensure you get the high quality signal you're paying for...

DVD is going to stick around for awhile and when it finally dies off I think the successor will be downloadable video that takes over.
