Hooray Hooray, HD DVD has died… today

Today marks the start of a great era, the era of Blu-ray!

Toshiba, one of the main backers to HD-DVD, has decided to pull out of the controversial format war between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray. Obligatory quote:

” it will no longer develop, manufacture and market HD DVD players and recorders.”

So now all you lot who bought HD-DVDs are now pedaling a dead technology.
