HD odds and ends..

HDMI 1.3: Better DTV images, sound in 2007
Why today’s best HDTVs aren’t worth buying
Blu-ray / HD DVD stalemate boosting interest in combo player?

The first two posts concern HDMI 1.3, which ups the ante from 8-bit to 16-bit colour (!), as well as uncompressed, 3 Mbps audio.

The last post posits that Blu-ray and HD-DVD are tied in the race to consumers, who seem not to care very much about the whole thing.
It is my sincere hope that Blu-ray vs HD-DVD will become just as meaningless and wasteful as the DVD-R vs DVD+R debate was a few years ago.
Who even looks to see if they are buying -R versus +R these days?
I sure don’t.
Actually, all I look for is “DL”.
