    This is an interesting read.

    I wonder what will replace Blu-Ray?!? Perhaps another color of 'Ray'? :-)

    "Samsung has said that it sees the Blu-ray format only lasting a further 5 years before it is replaced by another format or technology. "

    The article is here.

    So you guys think $12 plastic discs you can pick up at the convenience store are going to be replaced by:
    1. Heavy, delicate and expensive spinning hard drives?
    2. Even more expensive flash drives?
    3. Downloadable content when most ISPs are enforcing bandwidth caps rather than keeping up with their infrastructure demands?

    I was thinking of something more along the lines of Redray.

    I got one word for you.....thumb drive......ok thats 2 words but the price will drop to a point where ease of manufacture and durability will make it attractive. will probably have faster memory in it too.

    or not.

    Excuse me? This is an article where Blu-Ray is replaced by OLED displays? I get it... better to put development $$ into OLED research, but still - it's a lame segue.

    While I'd like to think Blu-Ray will be replaced by a 1080p 4:4:4 format or higher, it's not likely to happen. Instead internet streaming will gradually take over the market with hyper-compressed 1080p that's worse than satellite, cable or over-the-air ATSC. Blu-Ray will hold the title for quality and reliability over all of these, but people will turn to the internet simply for the instant gratification and convenience.

    Eventually internet streaming might exceed what blu-ray has to offer in terms of quality, but that represents an enormous increase in internet bandwidth only available through massive infrastructure improvements.
