Do we know for a fact that current BD ROM replication lines can easily (READ: Cheaply) be modified to replicate 4 layer BDs?
Don't forget that in all of this discussion, given that the size for any particular density movie is a fixed target, the flash or standard ROM memory world might well have caught up by then.
By the time it becomes easy to make a 100GB BD-ROM readable at the right rate (isn't that largely solvable by a large cache by the way?) a 100GB USB/Thunderbolt/whatever memory ROM/flash memory stick might become the most alluring physical medium.
Or less clumsy words to that effect. Criminey. Not enough caffeine yet.
Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent. Unless, of course, it's to keep someone from creating a phone video in portrait mode, in which case it's a pretty good first step. Portrait mooks: KNOCK IT OFF.
