Buy an HD DVD player because ...

You know I kinda had a feeling that Blu-Ray would win out from the beginning. Apple joined the Blu-Ray alliance from the start but has thus far chosen not to add the technology as standard equipment (and I don't think as an option either). Many criticized Apple for not giving the Blu-Ray reading or writing capability but I can certainly see why they waited it out.

From SlashDot:

"Are you one of the few who boarded the HD-DVD Titanic ship headed to the bottom of ocean to join BetaMax? Fret no longer, friend, simply convert those and pretend like you never invested in the wrong technology! All you need is a Windows machine with a fast processor, an HD-DVD drive, a Blu-Ray burner, 30GB of free disk space, at least, though 40GB or more is recommended and an internet connection to download the software! Or you can sit and be the crazy guy who continues to argue that HD-DVD is the superior technology whether it's true or not."
