Warner Bros. Launches Red2Blu Program

In the early days of the High Def format wars, Warner Bros aligned themselves with the now defunct HD-DVD brand and started pumping out disks. Months later as the dust settled, they were forced to concede to the power house of Blu-ray.

For Warner, this wasn't a big deal. They've already stopped production, and probably made some money in the process. For us, the viewers at home however were more or less out of luck.

Blu-ray Players to Hit $99?

If you're like me, you've been waiting for that magical moment to jump on the Blu-ray bandwagon when prices dip below the mythical $150 price.

Modern Fossils Freeze Your Memories

This site is proof of the Internet's infinite capacity as a storage medium for our fondest memories. Through reviews, blogs, and features, we're able to preserve and revive forgotten films, games, and other forms of entertainment, and make it seem as if they're current. What we don't think about, however, is what will be physically preserved when the internet goes tits up and all of our storage is wiped.
