Default Apple and Microsoft Unite Against Blu-ray

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.tuaw.com/2010/09/22/microsoft-joins-apple-in-stance-against-blu-ray/' target='_blank'>http://www.tuaw.com/2010/09/22/micr...gainst-blu-ray/</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Apple has a surprising ally in its campaign of apathy against Sony's Blu-ray disc format. Microsoft, of all companies, has also stepped out with a passive-aggressive stance against the standard, as UK head of Xbox gaming head Steven McGill says that 'Blu-ray is going to be passed by as a format.'"</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/at/auto/1285251767.usr105505.jpg" style="border: 0; margin-left: 150px; margin-right: 150px;" /></p><p>Microsoft was heavily invested in HD-DVD, so I'm not entirely surprised that they're not eager to adopt Blu-ray. &nbsp;Apple, of course, would much rather you bought or rented movies from iTunes. &nbsp;I have a PS3, so I have a Blu-ray player, but I've never used it for anything other than games. &nbsp;I'm much more invested in the idea of streaming content and I believe that Blu-ray, and all physical media, is headed for obsolescence. &nbsp;What do you think? &nbsp;Is Blu-ray, as a format, worth supporting?</p>
