Wow, I've really seen it all now. First of all, all this review says is that Viacom owns Blockbuster, and they also own Paramount who ""switched" from endorsing HD DVD to endorsing Blu-ray" in the author's words. They're format neutral and if anything, they support HD DVD a little more with better audio tracks and IME features on some of their releases.

The writer of the article then deduces that since Viacom owns Paramount too that there is a Blu-shaded conspiracy at work with nothing to back up said claim.

I am however surprised that he didn't just believe the whole 2 million Chinese HD DVD players going to Wal Mart crap. He actually was responsible enough to show that the Chinese HD DVD player thing was false and that's the only real fact he can back up in that whole "article".

The mods are going to have to actually make a rule in which you can get an infraction for deliberately starting duplicate threads, or threads that are not exact duplicates but are clearly related to an existing thread.

Two more BB threads popped up minutes ago. Good thing I'm leaving for lunch soon . . . .
