Jobs didn't like bluray because he was pushing an online audio/video service and went out of his way to crap on any physical media.

For movies, it's still the best thing going. None of the HD streaming solutions come close to it in quality.

For data, it's just like CD or DVD, but bigger. Far more reliable long term than a hard disc. Sure it doesn't have the GB per dollar that an HDD does, but you can't be serious about archival data storage and using hard drives. Tape is still king in that department, but the drives and media that come close to matching the capacity we typically have these days are out there... so for the rest of us, optical is the best overall option.
