More than eight years ago, DVD (called Digital Versatile Disc at the time) burst onto the scene and offered the best quality audio and video images available, all on a new shiny 5-inch disc that looked like a CD. It was predicted that it would replace...

I've had this a little over a week now. I'm still finding out that it will do things that I thought were impossible – some of the buttons, for example, do two different things depending on whether you press them, or press and hold them for a second....
