    Today, I found a news bit on the front page of MacRumors about the next line of pro macs (including MBPs) having blu-ray drives. What is so groundbreaking about Blu-Ray?

    Higher video quailty/higher storage capacity .. 25GB Blu-ray v. 4.7GB normal dvd+r


    50GB discs just came out... Sony R&D is working on a 8 layer blu-ray disc should be out within 5-6 yrs :(

    that 8 layer disc will hold 200GB total :eek: :cool: :D

    It uses a blue laser instead of a red one, so the smaller wavelength means you can fit more data on the same sized disk.

    considering that the only blue ray drives for computers out cost about $1000 right now, they can go shove it back on the shelf.

    but the pros will eat this stuff up

    hey whatever brings me hd porn faster, i say bring it.

    Bluray is not ready for primetime. I think it would benefit Apple to wait until it is truly ready. The dual layer discs are NOT shipping yet, not in quantity. Not even manufactured discs for movies, let alone recordable blanks. They are having massive issues with many parts of Bluray.

    HD porn has been out for a while. It just never took off, because the higher res. brings out on the flaws on the girl. It's actually worse than SD porn, because of that. Unless, of course, the girl's entire body is covered in makeup. ;)
