A Blog of my students daily thoughts about a different technology subject

March 30th, 2010 Sponge

As you become older and probably more inclined to watch more movies, some people think Sony’s Blu-ray discs are the answer. Some say it is digitally distributed media, like NetFlix. In your opinion, will DVD and Blu-ray players become nearly extinct like VHS and CD Players due to streaming content over the web or will the lack of improvements in picture quality or simply usability give strength to Blu-Ray? Why or Why Not? (You must answer in 8 complete sentences or you will GET ZERO CREDIT).

  1. no i dont think they will they are going to be used because people have movies and such and they would like to also watch them…

  2. i dont think there will be no dvd or blue ray player because their too popular

  3. I’m not completely sure what i think bout that. i mean i think yes. but yet i think no.so yes but no .i think people think blue-ray is so special .but there is not that big of a difference between dvds and blue-ray dvds i mean there both dvds and both use same movies. so i don’t understand why they r so special.but thats just my opinion. so i cant really chosse.

  4. i think that DVD will become instinct because they are starting to come up with different technology. also because since more and more people are starting to get x-box and play station, they stop using DVD players. because the play station and x-box will be able to play movies. but i dont know about the blue-ray movies because they are newer and aere starting to get more and more popular. but i guess we’ll have to see what happens

  5. I DON’T KNOW

  6. i think that the there both good but im going to go with the blue ray

  7. i think they are going to go extinct because the xbox 360 is playing movies and the ps3 are to.i choose the xbox because i already have one.

  8. im not shure. but, i du no that theyre just az popular az the VHS nd CD Player were at the time they 1st caime out in storez. my family doezent uze Blue Ray discs, wii uze regguler DVD discs lyke normal people. ( im not normal, my parents are. [way too normal at that!] :-*

  9. im not shure. but, i du no that theyre just az popular az the VHS nd CD Player were at the time they 1st caime out in storez. my family doezent uze Blue Ray discs, wii uze regguler DVD discs lyke normal people. ( im not normal, my parents are. [way too normal at that!] 😛

  13. I THINK THAT NO ONE IS GOING TO BUY THE BLUE RAY BECAUSE IT IS MORE EXPANSIVE THEN THE OTHER ONE DID YOU KNOW THAT PEOPLE BUY THE LESS EXPANSIVE ONE THEN THE MORE HIRE PRICED ONES BECAUSE IT SAVES THEM MONEY LOTS OF MONEY AND MORE TIME TO BUY STUFF IN STED OF LOOKING ALL OVER THE PLACE FOR A X-BOX AND YOU KNOW THE REST YOU CAN JUST PICK ONE AND LIVE ON WITH IT THAT WHAY YOU WONT HAVE TO SPEEDING ALL YOUR TIME THERE W HATING FOR YOUR KID TO PICK ONE…?!

  14. I DONT THINK EVERYBODY WILL BUY ONE BECAUSE BLUE RAY I TO EXPENSEV. SO YEA

  15. i think not everybody will buy the blue ray because they are so expensive that nobody wants to buy them and they might not have enough money to purchase that blue ray

  16. I think its all the same all theesse electronics the just look different and might have 1 or 2 different features.

  17. weLL iThinkk ThaT bLue rayy is quud buhT idnT knie The differences forr rreaL Theyy pLay movies andD sTuff buhT Theyy have differenT quaLiTys ‘ somee pLay beTTer whiLe oThers have beTTer picTures. some are jusT differenT dependinqg on waT brand yhuu qeT so i reaLLy dnT knoe

  18. Both of them. Simply because you can watch movies on both. After a while they both will become unpopular. They are both expensive. You can also watch movies in a PS2. There like the same thing except one is more expensive. So thats why I choose both

  19. I THINK THAT THE DVD WILL BECOME EXTENT BECAUSE PEOPLE ARE COMING UP WITH NEW AND BETTER STUFF EVERY DAY. IF PEOPLE KEEP CAOMING UP WITH NEW STUFF THE PEOPLE WILL START TO FORGET ABOUT DVDS

  20. I think that Blu-Ray will go extinct. But it won’t be soon because Streaming is hard to do. You have to order with a form of credit card. You can only get a movie once and then have to pay for it again. The quality is not nearly as good. You can only get certain movies. It could go extinct or could last awhile. I’ve got my money that it’s going to be a long time before it goes extinct.

  21. I think that blue ray will say for a long while. Blue ray is the best picture quality in my opinion. They are both good. Also net flix is good for sending movies to like xbox. I love both but if they go extinct then there is something wrong with the people making these movie equiptment things why make them extinct if they are so good. If they keep making new things and forgetting the old ones then in ten years every hobo will have blue ray. lol

  22. both because they suck

  23. I believe that Sony’s blue-ray players are the answer due to the entirely different concept in which they distribute sound quality as well as image quality. Blue-ray has completely remastered many of the original DVD or VHS versions of films and or shows. With the factor of Netflix coming into play…there will be some controversy as to whether or not it will out-date the blue-ray concept. In my opinion, the blue-ray concept stands stronger in means of quality and durability, while Netflix is stronger in means of convenience and accessibility. The one that stands stronger is opinionated between the two.

  24. I think they will become old liek vhs and stuff. The reason is because they are allways making something newer and better. Just like now how they have the blue ray and netflix it used to be vhs. Now you can watch movies on ps2’s,ps3’s, x-box360 and so on. Those are the big thing now. Like when vhs first came out they were big. Every one wanted the VHS. So that is how it will be now every one will want the newest because it will be better.

  25. i would have to say that yes they will become extinct. because the tecnology we have today is so updated. i also think that they will become extinct because now we can watch netflicks online. and because the movies that are coming out are already on certain websites.

  26. Well in my opinion the regular dvd will be extinct. Blue ray is much better than the DVD. The VHS died because of the DVD and as the “circle of technology” continues the better thing will be dominate. Although new things like netflix is threating blue ray DVDs. We can now watch movies without leaving your seat. The internet is practically the new way of doing things. You take inventory in a restaurant electronically not by paper. You download music instead of buying the CD. You can also watch the newspaper or any other news through the web. We are currently experiencing the growth of technology at a fast paste. So like the “circle of technology” continues there is always going to be something better.

  27. blue ray has better picture and more high def but its high price wise and thats why i stick with the plain cd player.

  28. THE PS3 SLIM CLEARY A WAY DETER GAMEING SISTUM, PLUS IT COST LESS

  29. iTs Like a yes and Then a no aT The same Time. because peopLe see differenTLy Than i do . buT in my opinion mosT LikeLy They wiLL because The qeneraTion now days are surrounded by new TechnoLoqy. im preTTy sure There wiLL be someThinq new invenTed ThaT wiLL knock bLu Ray and dvds ouT of peopLes mind. The worLd is aLways LOOkinq

    • for somneThibnq new. so of course dvd wiLL noT even be an opTion for peopLe. neiTher wiLL bLu ray. no TeLLinq whaT wiLL be The nexT biq Thinq ! i know for sure whaTever iT is im mosT LikeLy qoinq To buy iT especiaLLy if iT is eye-caTchinq !

  30. i think that DVD will become instinct because they are starting to come up with different technology to watch t.v. on and more,I think that blue ray will stay for a while. Blue ray is the best picture quality in my opinion. and as will as others,If they keep making new things and forgetting the old ones then in 15 years THERE ANT GOING TO BE NO BLUE RAY.

  31. the blue ray

  32. i dont like nether of those. i have some one who gets us the movies we want cause she knows how to do them. so yah. ha but not ya!!!! but yah.

  33. i like netflix. i have it and its cool. its the fastest movie getting thing in the world.its easy. and cool.i love it. you can get movies in the mail. and keep it as long as u like.

  34. i like netflix. because 1 you can get unlimited. 2 you can watch it instantly. 3 you can keep it for as long as you like. 4 you can see any movie. 5 you can watch it at any time. that’s why i like netflix. you dont have to pay much.

  35. i think that DVD will become instinct because they are starting to come up with different technology. also because since more and more people are starting to get x-box and play station, they stop using DVD players. because the play station and x-box will be able to play movies. but i dont know about the blue-ray movies because they are newer and aere starting to get more and more popular. but i guess we’ll have to see what happens.the blue ray.

  36. I dunno

  37. I DON’T KNOW!!

  38. I THINK THAT BLU-RAY IS A GOOD MOVIE THING CAUSE YOU CAN GET MOVIES FASTER AND YOU CAN WATCH THEM AND PAUSE THEM AND FAST FORWARD.

  39. IDK

  40. i don’t like any of them because on B-RAY i can barley see
    on DVD you can barley hear any thing their saying
    on sonny you cant see all the things that are going on

  41. I don’t think anybody is going to stop using them. They won’t go extinct like VHS and CD players. I think there might not be room for improvement. I think that because they won’t be able to top it. They won’t go extinct because people will never stop using them. Its one of the best pieces of technology. They just won’t be able to top it. They just won’t stop using them.

  42. thank they wont go extinct because they are cheep. and most people have taps.

  43. i think dat tha dvd will become extinct cause of tha blu ray.so tha blu ray will be arounf for a while.it has betta quality.but tha blu ray playa might get old cause of tha fact that ppl now a days r using the ps3 or wateva.but new tech is gonna come out so idk.honestly idc about all of dat techy stuff.of course ppl are comin out wit all of dat new stuff so pretty soon evrything is gonna be extinct.but dats mi opinion…until next time~*♥

  44. i would pick red box. because it only cost a dollar. and it is not a store it is at places like gas stations and MacDonald. so you can be getting to eat and see a movie you want. well then you an get it. and if you want to keep it cost a dollar more. i get a red box movie like every 3 nights or something. so that is what i think.

  45. i think bluray would become da coldest cuz its killing any other thing. such as da DVD it iz crap. i dont even like mine cuz its slow and it doesnt come out clearly. (da dvds) and plus i dontt really watch movies on a dvd. i am so use to watching tv. so i dont really care bout watching dvds and bluray. sometimes i use my xbox 360 to watch DVD’s. i bet da ps3 is useble 2. but there are alot of reasons some the things that used for dvds are bull. but it doesnt matter becuz n da long run some one is going to invent a new dvd player. That’s all.

  46. I DON’T REALLY KNOW. BUT I THINK OVER TIME THEY WILL BECOME OLD. SOMETHING NEW WILL COME OUT. THEY WILL BE LAME. NETFLIX IS GOING TO STAY OUT AND COOL LONGER. NETFLIX WILL BECOME LAME AND OLD.I DONT HAVE ANY OF THE NETFLIX MOVES OR A SONY PLAYER. SO LIKE I SAID I DONT KNOW. IM JUST WRITING WHAT I THINK. AND I THINK THEY WILL BECOME LAME

  47. i think they wont go extinct because they are cheap. and most people have taps.

  48. I don’t know much about the tech stuff. But I guess picture quality gives the product strength. The picture quality also helps to sell the product. The main thing is that it won’t go extinct. People like non-expensive items. And its not expensive. So its fine for now.

  49. THAT IS SO COOL I HAVE SEEN THEM BUT NEVER THOUT LIKE THAT OF THEM AND I WOULD PIKE PLAYSTASIN 1 2 3 THEY ARE GOOD I LOVE THEM AND I WOULD HAVE THE X BOX AND X BOX 360 I HAVE ALL OF THEM AND I LOVE TO PLAY THEM.

  50. the blue ray beacuse is better looking then dvd and vsh

  51. I think blu ray is better because it has a better picture than net flix. also netflix is if you lose it or break it you have to keep paying on it until you replace the mkovie.

  52. yeah because it is all a fad

  53. I THINK BLUE RAY IS BETTER BECAUSE IT HAS BETTER PICTURE AND THE NET FLIX .

  54. Found this site by accident but both formats will fall to digital streaming movies. There is no doubt about this at all it is just a question of how soon. Off topic … has anybody else noticed the absolute desecration of the english language and all forms of grammatical correctness in the above answers? All I can say is … wow! Nevermind video media it is about time for people to read a book or two.
