Not everyone is interested in new technology and/or don't wish to commit funds to it - that's a totally understandable position, and I accept it completely.
I don't. Why be so resistant to new technology and formats? I mean, there's not that many people grumbling about movies not being on VHS anymore, are there? As you say a new BD player can be picked up pretty cheap and there's no drawback to buy a BD player.

I was talking to a friend recently and she was interested in one of the extras on the Star Trek BD (the cast reunion) and wanted to know if it was available on DVD. I told her no, just the BD. She said she was reluctant to adopt Blu-Ray since she didn't want to rebuy her collection. I assured her the DVDs would work in her BD player and she seemed shocked by this idea.

I wonder how many more people out there are like that, that they honestly don't know BluRay players can play DVDs too?
With upscaling her DVDs will actually look BETTER on a Bluray player...
No. Upscaling does not work that way.
Just because it's futuristic doesn't mean it's practical.
