Steve Jobs: Blu-ray is Just A Bag of Hurt
Speaking at the notebooks event Steve Job made some controversial remarks regarding Blu-ray while revealing it’s future Apple devices.
If you were hoping for a MacBook/MacBook Pro with Blu-ray support, your going to have to wait a while,
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.
Phil Spencer was quick to add,
We have the best HD movie and TV options in iTunes.
Steve Jobs then went on to call HDMI “limited in resolution” with Phil Spencer claiming “Display Port” is the future or typical computer use.
Editor’s note: In theory you can use Apple’s new Display Port to DVI adapter to connect a DVI to HDMI cable to your HDTV…. But that still leaves the problem with playack software/Blu-ray drive.
