Shame on Toshiba. I feel it is rotten service and poor decision making that this organization just halts the HD line (2/20, Business, "Toshiba’s loss is rivals’ gain; With HD DVDs out of the picture, competition will grow in the Blu-ray format").
What do all the customers do who just purchased HD DVD equipment for loved ones and themselves for Christmas? Are they left out in the cold long after winter has come and gone? Will the manufacturer accept returns for all items still under warranty since they obviously won’t perform the way they were designed?
I think Toshiba should be held accountable for this bail-out. They didn’t just give up and let the competition win. All their supporters have lost, too.
