I know you are a stickler for detail, so here's the quote from Alex:


-- The BDA has formally kicked off a new PR campaign called "Phase Hydra"....its purpose is to seed "high profile" forums with Blu-ray advocates and target bloggers to promote Blu-ray to get the word out to the world...the campaign will also focus on "smaller, independent studio issues"...

Somehow, I still tend to think just the name is going to be a big factor eventually in deciding this.

"Oh, I want a HD DVD player to go with my HD TV!"

"Excuse me, where are the Blu-ray TV's?"
