    Just curious, do we know if Apple is planing on putting Blu-Ray Drives into their Macs or HD DVD Drives, JW as this may help me decide weather to get an HD DVD player of a PS3. Thanks.

    Chances are Apple will wait until either the format war has settled down or there are writers that can read and write *both* formats. Apparently Leopard will support both Blu-ray and HD DVD drives. Microsoft's USB HD-DVD drive for the Xbox 360 has already been shown to work on OS X as far as reading the drive goes but with a lack of HD-DVD playing software on OS X just yet, its not all that useful.

    Maybe :apple: will do the same thing they did with the airport cards, but it isn't likely. Here's hoping!
