Steve Jobs isn't down with BluRay

Sometimes Steve Jobs’ Reality Distortion field is glorious and strong.  This is not one of those times.

According to Macrumors, Steve Jobs said in an email:

Bluray is looking more and more like one of the high end audio formats that appeared as the successor to the CD – like it will be beaten by Internet downloadable formats.

OK.  Internet compressed 720P sounds great, I’ll be snobbily over here watching my 1080P movies on the HDTV. Get back to me once North Carolina lights up and I can buy 100Mb Fiber for a reasonable price.

It is a shame that the whole ‘Retina Display’, ‘pixelation is bad’ philosophy applies to iPhones and not movie watching.  

OK, now we’ll go back to agreeing with everything the man says.
