I bet on the wrong HD format, sorry…

I bought an HD-DVD player back when I worked at Microsoft and I evangelized for the format. As Christopher Coulter loves making fun of, the format I bet on today turned out to be the wrong format.

Am I going to run out and buy a BluRay player? Maybe, I’ll definitely be looking at those next week at CES. One thought, though, is that I can’t watch all the HD movies I’m getting from NetFlix, my Xbox, and my DirecTV dish so there’s not a pressing need on me to go out and get a box immediately.
