    We can play Blu-ray on our Mac as soon as the DRM gets ported to OS X. Yay! More DRM!

    Forget the DRM, some of us would like to be able create and watch hi-def movies that we've created ourselves.

    Actually, you'll get playback capability when either Apple no longer views it as a threat to their iTMS video rental/sales business, or BluRay takes off and can no longer be 'ignored'.
