High-Definition DVD Format War

Sony_hidefGood news! High-definition video discs are on the way, crystal-clear snuggle buddies for your HD television. Bad news: You may have to decide between HD-DVD, Blu-Ray (that sounds cool), and FVD. Why does every new technology need to have a format war? Oh yeah: Greed.

The Salt Lake Tribune: DVD format war is brewing - will consumers dive for cover?
Now there's new techno-babble to worry about: HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray. Both are formats for high definition DVDs, the next step in home video. The first high-definition players could hit store shelves in the U.S. by the end of this year.

In one corner is a format of high definition DVDs called Blu-ray, which is backed by Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and a few other electronics companies. In the other corner is HD-DVD, supported by Toshiba, NEC and others.

But good news may be on the horizon, thanks to consumer efforts like the One Format Only Campaign.

MacWorld.com: Top Sony exec hints at Blu-ray, HD-DVD detente
After more than a year of touting Blu-ray as the best technology to replace DVD for storing high-definition video and winning proponents including Apple, a top executive at Sony Corp., one of Blu-ray's major backers, has opened the door to the possibility of unifying the format with its arch rival, HD-DVD.

"Listening to the voice of the consumers, having two rival formats is disappointing and we haven't totally given up on the possibility of integration or compromise."

As slang, grammatical usage of the word teh is somewhat fluid. Besides being an alternate spelling of the, teh also has grammatical properties not generally applied to the; in general, it is used somewhat like an intensified "the". The spelling derived from a typographical mistake seen as the symptom of excitement, much the same as the interjection of the numeral one between bangs.gay anal In English, "the" can be used as an intensifier for the superlative form of adjectives; compare "that is best" and "that is the best." Teh has a similar use as an intensifier f
or unmodified adjectives, generally marking a sarcastic tone. For example, "that is teh lame" translates as "that is the lamest." This is similar to the use of the definite article lo in Spanish. For example, "Soy lo mejor" (I am the best) and "I am teh good". This contrasts with the use of the in English to construct mass nouns (substantives) from adjectives,
