New Details On Blu-ray Updates Emerging Including Toshiba’s Entry in Market

August 10, 2009

Global (ChattahBox) – It’s a new week, folks, and with the emergence of a new day, so come a few more details on the future of Blu-ray.

Probably the biggest news for most will be the fact that Mac is rumored to be adding Blu-ray to iTunes. That’s right, there will now be one more way for you to spend way too much while browsing the iTunes store.

Now, don’t get too excited. While several sources are reporting this rumor, it is far from official. But the fact that the iTunes 8.2 version had a Blu-ray support might indicate that Mac has reconsidered their negative attitude towards the quickly-growing technological phenomenon.

The second piece of Blu-ray news comes from Toshiba. They have now confirmed leaked reports that surfaced in July, which states that the company would be petitioning for membership into the Blu-ray Disk Association.

That move has now been made, and Toshiba will begin shipping out Blu-ray products later this month.

“Toshiba aims to introduce digital products that support the Blu-ray format, including BD players and notebook PCs integrating BD drives, in the course of this year. Details of the products, including the timing of regional launches, are now under consideration. We will make announcements in due course,” PC Mag quoted the company.

    Toshiba had no other choice with the collapse of their HD DVD format.
