I not sure if she meant DVD-A or SACD or similar, but it put her right off buying one. Anyone else heard of this??? I just hope its not true:( :( :(

    It's nonsense - though it would be interesting to ask her to dig deeper aat work next week and try to find out what the guy who told her this meant by it.

    I thought as much but her workplace do seem to know a thing or 2. Like that ITV Digi was in trouble and a few other things.

    It's not true.

    DVD is going to be around for a while. It might change a bit, when we get commercialisation of stuff like Blu-laser technology and all that other crap many, many years from now... We'll all need a new player, but obsolete? Not a chance.

    There are new disk formats coming through which have much higher capacities, as Pointon has mentioned.

    But DVD will be around for as long as VHS has been and will be.

    You think everybody's gonna start buying everything again? No they're not.

    We're safe. Don't panic :)

    YES it is true, believe it or not
    New thing is called DVD-Muta(u)nt and it works in any position, horizontal, vertical, even while moving!
    You stick the finger in the hole, spin the disk around it and use laser pointer as reader! It gives perfect output, absolutely no distortion, Absolutely Quiet! You close your eyes and immagine perfect picture and sound. Perfection will be reached in October!

    Well, pointon, the opening in the middle of DVD is pretty narrow . . . unless you can prove different :)
