ok.. with the release of bluray and hd-dvd impedning, videos will begin to take up the full space. you all may know how long it takes to dl 4 gigs from a torrent. but when these video begin to be like 25 gigs, can you imagine the download time on that? you could work and pay of the movie 100 times over bor for that. there is a new internet out some call internet2, with up to 6gbs connection rates. only government establishments and high universities have this. sad thing is, every last thing to do in monitored strictly and all your information sent to the isp, no confidenciality. so as i was saying, broadband will start to seem like the slowest thing ever with everything changing to hd. video games and movies being 25 gigs will take atleast a month or 2 to download, time you could be working. with bluray and/or hd-dvd, the pirating scene with deminish severely. cuz id rather buy something than download it at an insane price. and to those of you who complain "omg its a 20 dollar disk" about bluray, if everyone starts using it, it will lower in price significantly after say a year. dvds were just the same. so were cds.
