Blu-ray is doomed. I came to this conclusion shortly after reading John Dvorak's thoughtful dissection of the HD DVD versus Blu-ray imbroglio. It was right on the money in all ways but one: Dvorak didn't annoint a winner; he thinks it'll take a couple of years to shake out. I think he's wrong.
I'm not so sure I agree. After all, Blue-ray is a catchier name -- sort of like Sting-ray, only Blue-ray. Oh yeah, Betamax is a catchier name than VHS. Okay, scratch that theory.
