Rumor Crushed: No MacBook Blu-ray, Format Is A "Bag Of Hurt" Says Steve Jobs

250px-MacBook_white.pngLooks like the Blu-ray packin' MacBook rumor was a BIG LIE. Thanks Kevin Rose. Yes, there's a couple of new MacBooks sans Blu-ray drive of course. As for reasoning says Steve Jobs,

Blu-ray is a bag of hurt. I don't mean from the consumer point of view. It's great to watch movies, but the licensing is so complex. We're waiting until things settle down, and waiting until Blu-ray takes off before we burden our customers with the cost of licensing.

That's gotta hurt Sony. "A bag of hurt" just sounds rough. Funny stuff though.

That's a great quote (not for Sony obviously..) I'm trying to imagine what a bag of hurt would look like..

That's my Monday morning chuckle. Thanks!
