HD DVD is dead. If you’re one of the unlucky saps who went with that format rather than the competing Blu-Ray format, you’re out of luck as of this morning, when Toshiba announced that it would no longer manufacture HD DVD players and recorders, the Washington Post reports. This is sad news, since the HD DVD format was clearly the better of the two. Once again VHS beats Beta, only this time Sony comes out on top. So what to do with that brand new Christmas HD DVD player?
