Perhaps optical media are indeed on their way out, and Apple appears to be of this opinion judging by the recent hardware updates, but articles like this Die, discs, die! Six reasons to kill the DVD are far from being convincing. If I link to it, it’s because it is one of the rare cases in which most of the comments are actually more intelligent than the article itself. Some of the ‘reasons’ the author mentions are so tied to his personal views and experience that the whole piece could easily be summarised like this: I hate DVDs and I hope they disappear soon! Nyah, nyah, nyah!
I’m a bit disappointed that Macworld reprints such poor quality material.
