How does one received irony in the mail?...well, in the shape of 5 free HD-DVDs about a month after the format dies a painful death. But they're free, so I guess I can't complain.
I remember seeing a laser disc for the first time a few months ago. So shiny.
Coasters. Either that, or save them for a few decades. If you show them to some kids it would be like showing kids now some Betamax tapes.
You know, that's not a bad idea (keeping them for Betamax-like curiosity's sake). Maybe I should do that and get one HD DVD version of a movie I already own. Goodness knows how I wish I would have kept a few things from my childhood that would either be worth something now or be neat to have for the "hey look, this is how things used to be" value.
For HD-DVD, there will be a Betamax factor, but I don't think it is a very strong one. The major reason for that is that HD-DVD looks just like any other optical disc. Betamax or 8-track tapes look different, so they get the ooh and ahh factor.
Anybody want some irony in the mail?

When I was in 6th grade our geography books had laser disks that went with them. I guess it was supposed to be "high tech" back when they came out.
