Big Up to All My Haters!

This is what some executive at Microsoft said:

"Before very long we will look back wistfully at shiny discs as something that was somewhat a historic phenomenon in a way that we kind of think about vinyl or VCRs today," Lewis stated. While the Microsoft-backed HD DVD format has "died" in the next generation format wars, Lewis believes that Blu-ray will follow the same fate. When will digital distribution take dominance? "I think that's going to be the case in the next 12-18 months."


Translation:

"You fuckers don't want HD-DVD? Fine! We don't care! Blu-Ray sucks anyway! Then you're gonna be all sad, like 'Why didn't we choose HD-DVD?', and we'll be like 'Ha! Told you!'"

Do you really think that guy would've said that if Toshiba and everyone else jumped on the HD-DVD wagon? Besides, irrelevance in a year is better than irrelevance a month ago.
