Format wars: Come together or die


As I’ve said before, the so-called format war won’t be coming to an end anytime this year or next. It’s not really even a war amongst the two formats. Each camp must convince the consumers to upgrade their old tubes to HD before the war can even begin.

So what we have here is the Chinese finger trap. Now, we all know the only way to get out of said trap is to come together or cut the sucker off. Look what Sony is trying to do. I don’t blame them. I’m also under the impression that neither side can win this outright nor do I think coming together will do anything, but cause a few ripples in the space time continuum. It’s still a funny comic.
