My report is about DVDs. I will tell you all about DVDs. Video-tapes are lame! Get some DVDs instead! DVDs hold way more data than videotapes. Plus, DVDs donÕt have that black thing that holds data stuff for a videotape that is so tempting to touch, but you canÕt because it could ruin the movie. I hope you like my report.

History of the DVD

This paragraph is about the invention of the DVD.  According to Wikipedia, Sony, Phillips, Toshiba, and Matsushita invented the DVD in 1995. Toshiba and Matsushita invented one kind of DVD, and Sony and Phillips invented another kind. Then, all four companies put their ideas together and invented the DVD we have now. (Wikipedia.com)

This paragraph is about how many DVDs were sold in 2007.

According to Diggumsmax, About 2,400,000,000 (2.4 billion) standard DVDs were sold in 2007. About 14,200,000,000 (14.2 billion) Blu-ray and HD DVDs were sold in 2007. ThatÕs a whopping 16.6 billion DVDs! Whoever sells DVDs must be getting pretty rich. This paragraph is about how many DVDs were sold in 2007.

How it works

       This paragraph is about how much data a DVD can hold.

According to Wikipedia, DVDs can hold from 1.46 GB to 17.08 GB. Single layered DVDs hold from 1.46 GB to 4.7 GB. Double-layered DVDs hold from 8.54 GB to 17.08 GB. (Wikipedia.com)

What it is    

This paragraph is about how much DVDs cost.

Blank DVDs cost between $0.30 and $2.00 per disc. Movies are usually between $15.00 and $20.00. I would rather sell the movies than the blank discs, I would make a ton more money.

       This paragraph is about what ÔDVDÕ stands for.

According to Wikipedia, DVD stands for Digital Video Disc or Digital Versatile Disc. It just depends on which one you want to call it. They both work because DVD can stand for both. (Wikipedia.com)

       This paragraph is about how many types of DVDs there are.

According to Wikipedia, there are 9 types of standard DVDs. IÕm not sure that it is true, though. Because anyone can post stuff and change stuff on Wikipedia. (Wikipedia.com)




Well thatÕs it. I hope you liked my report. Just remember, videotapes are lame! Buy DVDs instead!
