    Mark Cuban, DVD killer
    Dallas Mavs and HDNet owner Mark Cuban has an interesting blog entry
    today on the future of DVDs and PVRs:
    I love looking for ways to screw up conventional wisdom. Right now in
    the entertainment world, the conventional wisdom is that both sides on
    the HD DVD vs Blue Ray DVD will battle it out and a standard for HD on
    DVD will emerge. No one is trying to rush to a compromise because the
    big media companies want to squeeze as much money as they possibly can
    out the current DVD business cycle.
    Good. The longer it takes, the less chance any format of DVD has of
    having a place in the future of home entertainment. Don’t look now,
    but the price and size of hard drives have fallen like a rock, while
    capacities have soared, with no slowdown in site.

    Which leads to the question — What is the best way to distribute
    content? DVDs which will be limited in capacity to 9.4gbs on a single
    DVD for another year, and then after that 50gbs on a single disk for
    years to come after that, or rewritable media that can hold 2gb
    already in a device half the size of a pen, or in a hard drive that
    can hold 200GBs plus in a drive the size of your cell phone?
