Owen and Stewart's Leprechaun Trap

the makeshift ladder and seals his fate.

Casualties of War

This Slate piece hits the nail on the head re: the feelings of suckers consumers that are now stuck with useless HD DVD players. This particular section is flat-out masterful:

"In three short months, I was screwed by every cog in the gadget-industrial complex. The tech blogs convinced me that the format war would drag on for years. Sony pulled sketchy backroom deals behind my back. Netflix cut off my HD disc rentals. Even Toshiba did me dirty. Remember those seven free discs? Two of them (The Bourne Identity and 300) came with the player, but I had to mail in a UPC code to collect the other five. Perhaps the cereal-boxlike nature of this giveaway should've tipped me off that HD-DVD was the Frank Stallone of high-definition disc technology. Or maybe the pathetic list of available titles—The Hulk, Aeon Flux, Darkman—should've alerted me to Blu-ray's back-catalog advantage. Anyway, the relevant point here is that I still haven't received any of these terrible movies. You can keep them, Toshiba. I'm sure there's someone somewhere who collects unplayable copies of Black Rain."
