Stuck like glue sugarland karaoke

maybe the new revision on the 17 MBP will have it. i have no idea what apples reasons behind the licensing problems, but i see no reason for them to lie about it. You are wrong on that point, as I pointed out before. It certainly would be a valid reason if it were still true, however the situation has changed. Optiarc Sony/NEC joint venture developed a 5mm drive primarily for use by Apple and offered them to Apple as slot-loading drives for use in the latest machines. The fact that you cant buy one at retail has nothing to do with what was made available to Apple. Note that Matsushita did the same thing in time for the early 2008 refresh, and Apple turned them down as well. A version of the Optiarc drive IS being used in the new Sony TT series that was just released, and I believe will be used in the upcoming Dell 13 Studio XPS refresh coming soon. The lack of drives used to be a very real issue for Apple prior to this year, but it no longer is. I stuck like glue sugarland karaoke say too much about the issue, but the reason Apple didnt end up including Blu-ray with this release has NOTHING to do with drive availability. Theres a lot of corporate politics going on behind the scenes, and the main issue is with Jobs wanting read: demanding that ALL studios start including iPhone/iPod compatible copies of their movies on Blu-ray which means licensing and paying for Apples DRM implementation. Most studios have done as he requested though on a limited number of titles but some are very reluctant to start paying Apple for rights to DRM they really dont care to use, as theyre internal studies have shown customers arent willing to pay extra for digital copies of the movies they buy. The digital copy idea is VERY crucial to Apple, but studios are still fairly lukewarm to the concept. So, I suppose, complex licensing wasnt exactly its just not at all the whole story. Its not that Blu-rays licensing is too complicated, its that Jobs demands are MAKING the negotiations complicated. Personally, I dont like the idea of paying 2k for a machine that cant do things that a 900 PC notebook can easily do. I have over 200 BDs, have no interest in iTunes movie store, and have no interest at all in wasting my time ripping those titles, and definitely no interest in re-encoding those titles. When I travel which is very frequently I want to be able to grab a couple dozen titles off the shelf, throw them in the case, and go. No other solution accomplishes that and none are going to anytime soon. I dont claim to be the average consumer, nor do I have any desire to be. Apple has never geared itself toward average consumers anyway theyve always stuck like glue sugarland karaoke after pro-sumers, graphics artists, and video professionals. Yet they dont have Blu-ray, they dont have matte screens, and they dont even have enough ports on alleged pro models do get actual work done. Who exactly do they think their customers are? If they think they can continue being successful just releasing refreshes and getting fanbois apologies to those here who fit that description to keep buying new toys then, Im sorry, but their current success doesnt look likely to continue all that much longer particularly in the current economy. Personally, I dont like the idea of paying 2k for a machine that cant do things that a 900 PC notebook can easily do.
