Topic: Getting ready to go out and buy one of those spiffy new high definition DVD players for your living room? You may want to hold up a minute since there are two competing – and incompatible – standards out there these days: Blu-ray and HDD. If you buy one and the other standard wins out, you could be stuck with a pretty expensive dinosaur. Shades of the Betamax vs. VHS wars of 20 years ago!
