Blu-Ray: “A Bag of Hurt”, Jobs Says

That’s one of the funniest quotes I’ve heard in a long time.  Everyone’s so weird about talking about Blu-Ray, so when he said that, and described the pains, I was happy.  I still want a hard-copy of an HD movie, but it apparently should’ve been HD-DVD who won, since more studios liked working with it.  Sony and its proprietary format crap is KILLING them, and they still don’t get it.

Engadget quoted Jobs as saying, “Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt. It's great to watch the movies, but the licensing of the tech is so complex, we're waiting till things settle down and Blu-ray takes off in the marketplace."

If Apple can’t get it worked out, I doubt I’ll be seeing an add-on on my Xbox anytime soon.  =( 

The world isn’t ready for digital-only downloaded movies, is it?  What do you think?  I’ve got a poll up now on the right about the topic.
