In case you hadn't heard, Divx "effectively had its plug pulled by Circuit
City" on June 16. A student in my SLIS class brought in an article from
the web yesterday. There's an article on CNET:
<http://www.news.com/News/Item/0,4,37952,00.html> linked to related
stories. This is happy news from my point-of-view. Less consumer
confusion regarding DVD -- although I heard of at least one consumer who
interpreted this to mean that DVD is doomed as well! I hope this means
even more rapid adoption of DVD, now that consumers don't have to worry
about a competing format.
