Excellent point! Maybe that's the logic behind Craig's
seemingly incomprehensible stand. Finally something
that makes sense.

Let's provide the smallest possible improvement with
HD-DVDs, just so we can soak consumers with a complete
redo of their yet-to-begin HD-DVD library in the
shortest amount of time. It's called planned

So it's nothing to do with "economics" of the consumer.
It's "economics" of the media moguls he's fussing

Oooooooh. Who knew? Boy, was I off base.

Of course, this plays against the economics of the CE
manufacturers, who would have a much easier time
selling their upcoming over-60" sets if consumers
were already equipped with 1080-line software.
