FYI, that Popular Mechanics piece on High-Def DVD that I alluded to a few times over the summer is finally in print, and on the web. The web manifestation contains an expanded version of the "must-own" list I compiled for the package as well. The emphasis here was on Hollywood fare getting the high-def treatment, so there's nothing, say, about that 8K disc of Baraka...although I did get Chungking Express into the feature. The piece contains a lot of interesting information about how your Blu-ray sausage is made, if I may say so myself, and also delves into the differing philosophies involved. I've been preparing an end-of-the-year High-Def Consumer Guide to correspond with the publication of the piece, but as the PM piece doesn't provide a link to my blog (it's okay—they don't link to Instapundit when he publishes in there either, so I can't complain), to do so won't necessarily enhance my scheme to monetize this site, which I only started hatching as I was typing the previous sentence. Nevertheless, I hope to post that later in the week.
