Rick Mercer Ends Auction/HD-DVD vs. Blu-Ray

Well, in case you didn't notice it, Rick Mercer pulled the plug on his Liberal Leadership Kit auction back on Sunday.

Mercer cancelled the auction because he was hit with an overwhelming belief that the $16 million bid for it was a joke bid. Rather than spend the rest of his life trying to get $16 million out of some joker - and be on the hook himself for a $250,000 seller's fee - Mercer decided to pull the plug.

"I should have seen this coming," said Mercer in his news release. "It was for the Liberal leadership, after all, and part of the job is to promise lots of money in the run-up, and then not deliver in the end."

If you still want to bid on a Liberal Leadership kit, I see that about half-a-dozen copycats have popped up.

And, be sure to tune in to the Rick Mercer Report tonight at 8 on the CBC, where I'm sure Mercer will have the last laugh.

Let's get ready to rumble!

The format war between HD-DVD and Blu-Ray officially begins today!

For those who don't care, HD-DVD and Blu-Ray are the competing formats in the next generation of DVD. Not since the days of VHS vs. Beta have we seen a format war like this!

The war begins today as Paramount Pictures unleashes the first HD-DVD on store shelves. What is that DVD?

Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow
