R.I.P HD DVD - the battle is over

....and blue ray came out on top.  Toshiba announced yesterday it will discontinue HD DVD production. while I'm sad for Toshiba and HD DVD supporters Im kinda happy this battle is over. I had been holding off buying a new dvd player because of the battle between the two formats but was willing to hold off on to it settle down. Like others I also saw this coming. Most recently Warner Bros made the decision to back Blu-ray and then Wal-mart (the largest U.S retailer) also picked Blu-ray over HD DVD last week.  and it was game over.
