    Sad for you, loser.
    I got a HD-DVD player the other day. First thing I had to do was to
    update the firmware. It's called high-tech.

  3. LOL! Stop shopping at Wal-Mart and get a real HD-DVD player. It's called
    buying substandard garbage.

    I kinda doubt that. I got it at B&H (Toshiba HD-A30). Worked so well
    I went to Best Buy and bought another one for my brother.

    So genius, tell us which HD-DVD player(s) that you own.

  5. Like I'm impressed? Not! The old Toshiba really is bottom of the line for
    HD.
    XBox 360, kills the Toshiba and the family gets to play Guitar Hero.

    XBOX! LOL!

    They actually do sell those at WalMart, Toys R' us, and even eToys.
    That is too funny!
    You probably have a nice phone that you use for photography as well.

    How does your XBOX handle digital audio like DTS, Dolby Digital,
    etc?
    Oh that's right, it doesn't. Sucks to be you, Mr. Low-Tech!

    And guess what? The XBOX has to be upgraded with a firmware upgrade!
    LOL! Wipe that egg off your face while you read this from the XBOX

  7. Yep, an LG camera phone with a whopping 1.3 MP sensor. Come to think of it,
    I have yet to shoot a plastic image straight out of the old LG. LG kills
    the 40D.
    And I'll bet you wouldn't be able to tell the difference between an XBox and
    Toshiba in a double-blind test.
    Multipurpose, son. The old Toshiba sits pretty collecting dust while the
    XBox gives full enjoyment. You ought to try Guitar Hero it's fun. Oh,
    wait, you can't you have to rent HD-DVDs and wait by the mailbox.
    What egg? No shit about the updates, we expect that with the cutting edge
    technology Microsoft offer. You shouldn't have to with a standalone DVD
    player or the 1Ds Mk III.
    Yep, it's all automatic and in the background. And XBox Live is pretty
    cool, try that with the old ToSHITba.

    Sad to say, but in a way great time for Canon as it time to market that
    fills the coffers. It's $$better$$ to have the product in the customers
    hand(meaning they paid cash money, as Yogi would say) with a shit pile
    of fixes to apply than still in the lab being tested, while other brands
    are purchased. It happens in just about every product to include cars,
    computer operating systems, etc. You piss off some customers and they
    move to another brand only to find out they do the same. Welcome to
    consumerism. ;)

    I guess gross focus errors with 21 megapixels are considerably
    "uglier" than with 10 or 12....

  11. Jesus H. Christ on a pogo stick, you cannot even start a sentence
    on Canon without breaking the 10 Commandments: "You shall not
    bear false witness against your neighbour."

    And what do you do? You proclaim "endless" firmware updates for
    a camera that will not last even as long as your average sun,
    not as long as your average planet age, not even for the time
    humans walk on this earth, not even as long as the pyramids,
    not even millennia nor centuries.

    I actually predict that within a decade no further firmware
    updates will happen, and I predict that the number firmware
    updates issuded will be at most in the very low 2 digits.


    Of course, people who cannot count to ten without removing their
    shoes might find that "endless", yet the same patiently waited
    for "endless" years for Nikon VR long tele lenses and Nikon full
    frame bodies. Must be the devil inside of them.

  14. True, but it seems Nikon gets it right just about every time. Nikon never
    was plagued with so many problems as Canon.

    No one has been. It's disgusting to think a company with Canon's
    resources can end up with this happening. They are the Microsoft of
    cameras.

  19. You finally see what all the Canon shooters had for years and
    years. I still remember the "who needs full frame" posts
    from certain Nikon-partisans ... since Nikon cannot do wrong.

  20. ["Followup-To:" header set to rec.photo.digital.slr-systems.]

    - Nikon has not nearly as many customers. Less customers,
    less problems.
    - Nikon avoided all full frame problems until recently by not
    having _any_ of these unnecessary, newfangled full frame
    thingies.
    - Nikon avoided all long tele IS problems for a log time by
    simply not having _any_ of these unnecessary, newfangled full
    frame thingies.

    Of course, it never hurts anyone if a company takes years and
    decades to deliver what customers want. Noone would move from
    horses to a faulty, limited, problematic Tin Lizzy, they'd all
    stick to horses till all problems are solved and air bags and
    crash tests make cars 101% safe.
