Blu-ray is a "bag of hurt" says Steve Jobs
This was something I missed on Tuesday as I didn't see the actual keynote address, only what Apple posted on their web site.
According to Engadget
, Steve Jobs is blaming licensing issues for the current lack of Blu-ray on the Mac.
"Blu-ray is just a bag of hurt. It's great to watch the movies, but the licensing of the tech is so complex, we're waiting till things settle down and Blu-ray takes off in the marketplace."
It's good to finally hear something from Apple on this subject. I guess, much like when Apple introduced DVD burners, they are waiting for larger consumer adoption and significant falls in the price of media before committing. Unfortunately that's not so helpful for Pro App users.
