    Yeah, it was a shame that Sony did that mess with the memory sticks only to allow both sticks and SD cards once they realized the battle was lost.

    I was less frustrated by their proprietary memory sticks as I was their proprietary video files. I should not have to run a file reformatting program to get digital videos from my digital camcorder's HD to play on a computer. That's just stupid software encoding crap to force you to purchase an additional piece of proprietary Sony editing software that should have come with the camcorder or not be necessary at all.

    Bye bye, Sony.

    I stopped buying your hardware due to your proprietary shenanigans. Then, 8 years ago, you doped your CDs to secretly install DRM rootkits that disabled a PCs ability to copy music THAT WAS PURCHASED.

    I haven't purchased anything with your name on the front of it since. I even passed on your sweet NEX-5 camera and purchased a Canon mirrorless instead just last month.

    Oh well... haven't missed you for almost a decade now, Sony.

    I bought a player for $300 when they first came out, it's been collecting dust for past year together with dvd and vhs players. Who needs a player when you can insta stream anything over the net?

    Want a movie? Download it. I only see it being useful for people without internet or on dialup but those are going the way of dinosaurs together with bluray players.

    Kinda funny I don't even know if my iPod is even charged. Pod costs, music, video all works perfectly on my phone I can now 'give the finger' to iTunes.

    I've come late to streaming but it's great. My last trip to Tahoe we streamed Pandora both ways!

    There's probably some truth to this statement, although I'd much rather watch a bluray disc on my PS3 than stream the same movie via Netflix. The picture quality difference between the two is night and day, and ISP's are already *****ing about how much bandwidth streaming services such as Hulu and Netflix are chewing through. I personally don't believe bluray will be going anywhere anytime soon.

    Same here (subscribed to Rdio just last month); really glad I held onto my unlimited data plan! I can finally start putting it to use (without resorting to tethering). dancedroid

    As for streaming video vs bluray, I'm with trestevenson on this one. Blurays have better picture quality, no need to worry about network issues, no need to worry about whether the streaming company will lose the license before you want to watch a particular movie (or maybe whether they have the license, and thus the movie, at all). Not to mention all the extra features that come on blurays. I just use Amazon Prime's Instant Videos, so the selection probably isn't as good as Netflix's; either way, I think of streaming as a good way of finding something new on the spur of the moment, but for things that I actually care about, bluray is the way to go.
