It seems that the “Apple vs. Google ”is more like“ Apple vs. Android ”, if this Steve Jobs response to an email is any indication. Asking about the possibility of sharing high definition videos with friends and family, one user questioned the CEO about the possibility of Macs coming with Blu-ray drives in the future. The response from El Joboso it could not be more unusual, given the collision routes between companies.
YouTube now supports HD video. (And it does.)
So do you mean that, instead of spending on several recordable discs and recording them one by one for all my family and friends, I will have to send my vacation videos to an online service and just share the link? It seems like a silly proposition, if we take into account the reality of Brazil, but until it is requested, in a place where there is high speed internet.
For those who expect Blu-ray on Macs, this recommendation from Jobs is a bad indication. In any case, I would swap my MacBook's optical drive for a 32GB SSD to put the operating system and applications in and I have the impression that Ma's high command would endorse this.
