Nine Inch Nails Continues to Prove They "Get it"

Yesterday I randomly found out about a NIN fan project entitled “The Gift” from the fan group This One is On Us/Another Version of the Truth. What this is, is a a full length concert video created from over 450 gigabytes (GB) of video footage shot from HD cameras by the NIN crew that was released by NIN.com to see what their fans would produce.

Format Wars

The way I see it, downloadable movies (especially in HD quality) is going to be a commodity item for a nice little while. Reason being is file size. a DVD quality movie is 4-8GB minimum and HD quality is 1.5 times that at around 720p (2.25 times at 1080). Also, with the exception of the Xbox 360 and the PS3, there is not an easy consumer friendly way to watch downloaded movies on your television.
