R.I.P. HD-DVD (2006 - 2008)

Yesterday came the official announcement from Toshiba that they would stop producing HD-DVD equipment, thus ending the format war in favor of Sony's Blu-Ray discs. 

This wasn't much of a surprise to me, because I've been following tech news over the last year.  However, as a Toshiba fanboy (their laptops are AWESOME), its still saddening. 

Its especially interesting to see how the tables turned from last year, when me and many of my friends were predicting another VHS vs. Betamax situation, where VHS won because it was cheaper although lower quality.
