Convenience is More Important Than You Think


I made my daily stop at Marco Arment’s wonderful blog (subscribe, if you know what’s good for you), and found this (in response to this Khoi Vinh article), which supports my argument for NOT buying Star Wars on Blu-Ray.

The movies look great. But at such a high practicality cost, many people won\’t (and shouldn\’t) bother.

Unless you have a really decked out system that fully capitalizes on the benefits of Blu-Ray, why would you buy it? I will probably never buy another movie that’s on a disk. If I do, I will immediately rip it so I don’t have to deal with menus, FBI warnings, etc. I just want to watch the movie. On-demand is not the future, it’s the present. I’ll take a hit in quality for instant access.
