    No. I'm always really, really, really late to the new technology party.

    I plan on getting the PS3 later this year. But in the meantime, I'm going to be enjoying my "dead" HD-DVD player.

    Yes (or, my parents are. I'm going to rely on my laptop for the next four years and hope that when I get it in August it'll have blu-ray capacity).

    No. Not in the near future. Eventually, though, I will.

    I put maybe. Right now, it is a definite no. But if prices drop by Christmas, then I may consider.

    Eh, maybe. I want to invest in something that will last longer than this format war did so I'll probably bide my time for now. That and I need something HD other than my computer monitor to watch it on. :p

    Not in the near future, no. My dvd player works just fine, and I don't buy that many movies anyway. Heck, I still have my VCR and video tapes, too, and will until they break. :p Besides, I can't help but cynically suspect that as soon as most people convert their collections to Blu-Ray, someone will come out with a brand new format that suddenly everyone must snatch up. :p

    No. Optical drives are beginning their exit from the stage, and I don't want to latch onto a technology that will have begun a fade within a year or two.
