As an early Blu-ray adopter...

surprisingly I can't help but feel a little sad about this news.

I never doubted that it would happen, though not quite this soon, and I even said as much on these boards last week. But still, I do feel bad for the HD-DVD camp. I mean the Toshiba more than the HD-DVD customers.

They put a lot of money into a great product and have lost big time on it. Might that make them somewhat more reluctant to try and be innovative in another uncertain venture in the future.

Lack of innovation isn't good for anyone.

the fittest thing & some seem to get zapped when they are pyschological good guys. Some will get trampled in the rush to the top.

So it's a situation of "The king is dead; long live the (new) king." Just a small speed bump in the course of things in general. Yes, anyone who tends to root for the underdog, does feel a little bad for Toshiba.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
