Comments on: SanDisk’s Eli sings the Blu-Ray blues http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/05/19/sandisks-eli-sings-the-blu-ray-blues/ Exclusive outtakes from industry leaders Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:14:55 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Kent http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/2009/05/19/sandisks-eli-sings-the-blu-ray-blues/comment-page-1/#comment-869 Fri, 22 May 2009 19:29:06 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/summits/?p=3073#comment-869 If this guy seriously thinks comparing watching a Blu-ray on an HDTV or a HD projector with 5.1 or 7.1 audio to watching a movie or video on a 3-4″ screen smartphone is a valid comparison, and if SanDisk has a board of directors, they need to seriously consider getting a new CEO. Two completely different markets. I don’t know if Blu-ray will last or not, but if it doesn’t, it won’t be because you can’t play it on a smartphone.

But I wouldn’t mind if blu-ray gets replaced by a mini flash memory card that can do the exact same thing. Whether I plug it into my home hi-def monitor or my cell phone. That would be cool!

I also remember how happy we were when the floppy disk arrived, no more data loss because of faulty tapes, this was the ultimate high-tech invention and we believed things couldn’t get much better.

Flash drives, Thumb drives, once in common use on US Government computers are now history. No longer allow due to security concerns. I expect the commercial industry to follow suit and that only leaves the public sector, a huge market that no longer exists for Eli and his company.
