My feelings about DVD

Go and buy the DVD - you won't believe your eyes and ears!  Be sure to
buy it from Best Buy - they have the best deals I've seen anywhere
(ie. the Toshiba 2006 for only $399!).

The Divx player will come out middle to late next year and will be at
least $100 more expensive than the DVD counterpart.  Current and
future DVD players won't be able to play Divx discs, but future Divx
players will be able to play current DVD discs.

Divx is already dead.  According to numerous focus groups, no one
likes Divx and it just won't take off the way DVD has.  Even if Divx
does take off, all the DVD's you buy now will be playable on a Divx
player.  So even though I have very little money to spend, I feel a
DVD player is a wise investment (especially after seeing Goldeneye on
my own TV - WOW!).

If you have any further questions, please don't hesitate to ask.


In Christ,
Pete
