China Borrows From HD DVD to Create CH-DVD

China creates own high-def optical format; could spell HD DVD/Blu-ray Disc price drops

While western market consumers deal with HD DVD, Blu-ray Disc, and perhaps soon HD VMD, the Chinese market will get its own separate high-definition optical format specific to its region.... Front Page

I guess this can be seen as censorship if it's CH-DVD or nothing in China.

I wonder if their disks spin in the opposite direction from ours? Which way do ours spin?

I'll hit the open the tray button a little early and see, maybe. I think it's clockwise looking from above the disk, maybe.

Yeah, it's clockwise. But only if you are looking from the top. If you are looking from the bottom, it's counter-clockwise. But then if you are down-under, the bottom is the top and vice versa, which means that counter-clockwise is really clockwise, too. Except that being down-under means that clockwise isn't, because they are backwards, so that makes counter-clockwise really clockwise. So maybe it's still clockwise, but in reverse?
