Watching a Movie via a USB Flash drive KeyChain....are you happy to see me or just watching the Godfather trilogy?

Mark Cuban (the only blogger that impresses Elicia!) writes about HDTV, DVD, Hard Drives and the future, looks at Hard Drive based media is very tempting given the Gigabytes per Dollar versus DVD (including denser new DVD formats) or Download. Especially when we talk about High definition content.

this approach to distribution is that it basically kills off the "Piracy is going to kill us" threats from the big movie companies...I ask if anyone in the room has ever downloaded or uploaded a movie or TV show in HD quality to or from a P2P network. No one has ever raised their hand...shipping around 18gbs per 2 hour movie isn’t going to be fast anytime soon. Make the file sizes bigger to accommodate better quality, and forgettaboutit.


Cuban is involved with HDNet (and other things) so he has some background to talk about these things.
