Post This article has brought much ado on Slash

Good discussion on codecs and VC1 (Microsoft) and H.264 (MPEG-4 Part 10, MPEG AVC) open standard. Along with some philosophical discussions on content (lame HD offerings).

Remembering the messages about 2d cartoons, and questioning HD.. well if you've got it, and they deliver it, why not? But I'll not hold my breath for colorized versions of my fav B&W movies, and I doubt I'll go out of my way to buy HD disks unless they're priced the same as what is offered to-day, and ditto for the hardware. It looks like to-days movie audience demands more visuals, but in the crush to improve this aspect.. they've forgotten about the story.

I want my bedtime story back.... in sleep I have a far better HT.
