Apple gets Blue.

TOKYO - Apple Computer has joined the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA), adding further industry support for the high-capacity optical disc standard, the association announced Wednesday at Cebit.

Apple joined the association Tuesday during a meeting held in South Korea, Victor Matsuda, vice president of the Blu-Ray Disc Group, said at a news conference here.

The Blu-ray association is a group of companies that promote the optical disc standard, which is seeking to replace DVDs for storage and playback of HD (high-definition) content.

Apple's role has yet to be officially announced, but the company is expected to help the association in its efforts to finalize copy protection measures for contents, said Victor Matsuda, vice president of the Blu-ray group.

So now they'll try to sell the same movies, again, on a different format. More DOLLAR DOLLAR!, BLING BLING! at the expense of incompetent consumers.

Don't be so cynical. This is for computer storage. I doubt they'll try to phase out DVD players for films. (Not sayin it won't happen, but it is very unlikely that it would a) happen and; b) succeed with all the people who are still replacing old VHS with DVD.

I'm confident that they'll eventually try to replace DVD players with Blu-ray format.
