The pixel counters strike again!

Well, not exactly, but imagination can be fun! No, Reggie in fact thinks that his company's competitors have boxed themselves in this generation. Why?

As you probably know there's a format war going on right now to be the high-definition successor to DVD between Blu-ray and HD-DVD. Like many computer makers, Apple has thrown their lot in with Blu-ray, primarily because of its higher disc capacity (at least in each format's initial form), but has y...
