Just when you thought it was safe to look away.  While Microsoft didn't have a big HD-DVD related announcement, HP did.

Formerly solidly in the Blu-ray camp, they threatened to go with dual support and now they have. The release notes the BDA's inclusion of Mandatory Managed Copy, but cites iHD, which will only be a part of the HD-DVD spec, as a reason why they have chosen to promote both technologies. Check the link for the full release.

HD-DVD is still down in studio support, but if the drives can make their way into mainstream PC's, maybe Blu-ray hasn't won after all. Let's play the rampant speculation game (©Joystiq.) and see why this might have happened, or why now, beyond the reasons listed in the release.

Did I miss any?
