Default Re: THX says Blu-ray is dead. Does that mean no Star Wars in HD?

Getting that much throughput on a USB flash drive with atleast 50GB of space isn't happening now, and won't be for quite a while, let alone at speeds fast enough or at prices low enough for convenience.
Not sure about USB 2.0's 50MB/s. Accorded to wikipedia, Hi-speed USB 2.0 give 60MB/s, it take about 14 mins to write 50GB. With next generation USB 3.0 will give 600MB/s that will take over a min to write 50GB.
