I do believe we're in for a paradigm change, just like in the cable-providers, newspapers, network business. Video-renting and download-services, all changing from physical to digital.
My fear is that because of the power of the crowd.....downloads will stick with mp3 resolution, and the power of the possibilities of the BDP1's in this world is not used to its limits in the future standard. Leaving us with a quality less then before the CD again.
That's why Andrew Everard believes the end of cd isn't nigh, I do hope the industry thinks so too, or will deliver the goods to the best of its possibilities, and not the habits of the crowd.
