Then why not simply make one layer R/W that way you can use existing DVD/ blue ray players. If they must go and use SSD then it would be better to use electromagnetic induction rather than contacts.Why not instead of using flash memory simply make a small area of the disc R/W?
prob too difficult to manufacture as the two types use different storage substrates.
The DRM has little to do with Blu-ray itself, and don't think for a minute you aren't going to get the same crap on your digital downloads -- unless you pirate, of course. As for speed... it's still a helluva lot faster than my internet connection.Blueray, is just garbage in every sense. It's way too expensive, way too slow, and stuffed so full of DRM that it makes using them very annoying.
Never had that happen a single time.Sticking a new blueray into your player and having it not work due to a new form of DRM has happened far too many times.
Stop buying cheap Blu-ray players and the loading isn't as much of an issue.Even when they work, they load way way too slow[...]
You can almost always hit a button to skip straight to the menu. They do need to stop with the 20 warnings for piracy and other miscellaneous crap. If you're watching it, you didn't pirate. Pirated copies don't get the warnings. But the idiots in suits running these companies probably won't ever understand a concept such as logic. But again, this is nothing specific to optical discs. They're already doing the same thing to streaming video and digital downloads.[...]and the interface locks you into watching all their previews and crap when all you want is the movie.
If my choices are spinning disc or cloud, I choose spinning disc any day.Time for spinning disk media to just die.
