Sony and Toshiba fail to reach agreement on unified next-gen disc format

Digital Audio Tape vs. Digital Compact Cassette
SACD vs. DVD-Audio.
All failures because the greedy f-ers couldn't agree on a united format.
Oh well, the good news is that all you DVD rippers will be able to continue unabated for a few more years now until someone gets sick of losing millions and gives up. The HD DVD/BluRay will be stillborn at launch unless Sony can convince people that 20 million PS3 owners gives them a leg up (although most of those units won't be used for watching movies on anything other than SD TVs if I'm guessing correctly).

HD-DVD would never have been adopted by the DVD steering group if it had not been for a manipulation of the voting rules to allow it to pass.

SACD? Not dead yet, but with a smaller penetration than laserdisc in its heyday.
We'll see. I like their system better as it holds more, but I want a machine that is backwards compatible with all of my current DVDs, which the HD DVD is supposedly better able to do......
