Early Addoption Challenges

Some might say that this is another reason why Mac suck, the idea of form over function. While there may be some criticism over it … I think it just looks like another sideaffect of being an early adopter.
Consider all the people who bought “HD” TVs 4 or so years ago. As is stands now there may not be any way to put actual HD content on them, since many of the DRM features of the new HD media rely on digital connections to the device. This means DVI or HDMI connectors, no more component wires. It is not that the HD TV purchase was espeially bad … but as the technology started to become ‘standard’ the pre ‘standard’ set are out in the cold.
