Blu-Ray a sitting Duck

I write this post in response to the all the horrible journalist who do not do their own research before writing bias entry’s that the format was is over. Robin Harris must be getting paid for headlines that read the war is over and BluRay is the format of choice of millions of people. Read here

The fact is that people do not know what they want. If they did then this so called inflated war would be over. Robin Harris used quotes that are misleading and far from truth and overall picture. This is what really gets on my nerves. Andy Patrizio article Read here could not have summed up what I personally was thinking, well let me explain,

Blockbuster the nation’s largest video rental chain, said yesterday it would begin carrying Blu-ray DVD titles at 1,700 corporate-owned Blockbuster stores by next month. I’m sure everyone at Sony is thinking WoW we WON, but have they really?

Reminding myself of reality I contacted my cousin who works at BB Corporate and asked him how many exact outlets they have. Blockbuster has more than 7,000 outlets nationwide, so 1,700 stores is hardly a complete rollout. Infact only 24% of the stores are going to be carring Bluray disc. This number will eventually continue just the same way that Blockbuster brought DVD rentals into their a decade ago.

Do not discard that Blockbuster will continue to provide HD DVDs and Blu-ray disc available for rent via its online rental service.

The other point Harris wants to make is that Studio support is what’s going to win this war. Get over the studio support people. Sony owns 2 of those studios can you really count those? MGM & Sony Pictures Entertainment

Plus let me give you another perspective. Are you willing as a customer to replace all your existing DVD collection with the same title in Blu-ray format? I hardly see people wanting to reinvest in all their titles. So what I purpose is that only the newer titles will be making a difference when it comes down to the studio support. So think how many major blockbuster hits does Sony & MGM put out in a year? The only one that comes to mind is Spiderman and even the 3rd one wasn’t that great. What other big hit will help Sony sell new Blu-ray disc in the future. I’m hinting at the fact that people buy the big name hits and if the majority of these movies can be purchased on either format then who cares if Sony’s movies never make it to HD DVD. I won’t be missing Spidyman.

Harris, Microsoft is not a looser they sell software not hardware. Who cares about the HD-DVD addon. They are making money selling the VC1 codec to Sony. So the more Blu-ray sells the more potential for Microsoft to make profits.

The bottom line is PRICE. Andy was right when he said that the HD camp needs to offer a significantly lower price for its hardware than Blu-ray players and build installed base to build demand for titles. “That’s the only way the HD camp can persuade more studios and rental outlets to support HD.”

My bottom line is Sony get over your Monoply. Those deep lined pockets and studio bribing habits will bite you again one day.

    the general has struck!

  4. A guy is hanging out in his favorite bar when he spots a fabulous babe walking in on the arm of some ugly schlep. He asks the bartender about her and is surprised to discover that she’s a prostitute. He watches her the rest of the night, amazed that someone so attractive could be available to him.

    The next night he goes back to the bar, and sure enough she shows up again, only this time alone. The guy gets up his nerve and approaches her. “Is it true you’re a prostitute?”

    “Why, sure, big boy. What can I do for you?”

    “Well, I dunno. What do you charge?”

    “I get $100 just for a handjob. We can negotiate from there.”

    “$100 For a handjob? Are you nuts?”

    “You see that Ferrari out there?”

    The guy looks out the front door, and sure enough there’s a shiny new Ferrari parked outside.

    “I paid cash for that Ferrari with the money I made on handjobs. Trust me, it’s worth it.”

    The guy mulls it over for a while, and decides what the hell. He leaves with her, and gets the most unbelievable experience he’s ever had. This handjob was better than any complete sexual experience in his miserable life.

    The next night he’s back at the bar, waiting eagerly for her to show up. When she does, he immediately approaches her.

    “Last night was incredible”

    “Of course it was. Just wait ‘til you try one of my blowjobs.”

    “How much is that?”

    “$500”

    “$500? C’mon, that’s ridiculous.”

    “You see that apartment building across the street?”

    The guy looks out front at a 12 story apartment building.

    “I paid cash for that building with the money I made on blowjobs. Trust me, it’s worth it.”

    Based on the night before, the guy decides to go for it. He leaves with her, and once again is not disappointed. He nearly blacks out twice from the pleasure he receives.

    The next night he can hardly contain himself until she shows up. “I’m hooked, you’re the best Tell me, what’ll it cost me for some pussy?”

    She motions for him to follow her outside. She points down the street, where between the buildings he can see Manhattan. “You see that island?”

    “Aw, c’mon, You can’t mean that.”

    She nods her head. “You bet. If I had a pussy, I’d own Manhattan”

  5. A woman pregnant with triplets is walking down the street when a masked robber runs out the bank and shoots her three times in the stomach. Luckily the babies are okay. The surgeon decides to leave the bullets in because it’s too risky to operate.

    All is fine for 16 years, and then one daughter walks into the room in tears. “What’s wrong?” asks the mother.

    “I was having a pee and this bullet came out” replies the daughter. The mother tells her it’s okay and explains what happened 16 years ago. About a week later the second daughter walks in to the room in tears.

    “Mom, I was having a pee and this bullet came out”. Again the mother tells her not to worry and explains what happened 16 years ago. A week later the boy walks into the room in tears.

    “It’s okay” says the mom, “I know what happened, you were having a pee and a bullet came out.”

    “No,” says the boy, “I was jerking off and I shot the dog.”

  6. One day a five year old little girl excitedly approached her mother, and announced that she had learned how you get a baby. The mother was amused and said, “Oh really sweetie, why don’t you tell me all about it?”

    The little girl then explained, “Well, the mommy and daddy take off all of their clothes, and the daddy’s wiener stands way up high, and the mommy kneels on the floor and puts the daddy’s wiener in her mouth, and then the daddy’s wiener sort of explodes and makes sticky juice into the mommy’s mouth, and then the mommy swallows the sticky juice, and that’s how you get a baby.”

    The mother looked lovingly at her daughter, leaned over to meet her eye to eye and said, “Oh honey, that’s sweet, but that’s not how you get a baby. That’s how you get jewelry.”
