Well, if consumers being content with their current situation effected technology movement, then we would still be watching TV in black and white.
You could still watch color programming on B&W TVs. You can't watch BDs on existing DVD players.
He says that consumers are not fundamentally
dissatisfied with DVD, and I totally agree with him. I do think people were fundamentally dissatisfied with VHS (or video cassettes in general), and look how rapidly it was totally blown away when a superior product appeared. (It didn't even have superior picture quality in the beginning.)
