After a quarter of a century, no world-wide VHS standard emerged .... so don't hold your breath.

Hard to say. The future looks like it'll be w/ Blu-Ray. But w/ Blu-Ray's huge capacity, there's probably another video format to replace MPEG-2.

I still say Divx will rule out. Just you wait and see. Time will tell on that one, my friends.

I keep hoping for the combo DVD Player w/8 track. One would think Wal*Mart couldn't keep 'em on the shelves
