    the downside of a rar or zip file is the time taken to uncompress afterwards... even though the file sizes are smaller on zip and rar but they carry the same data and it has to be decompressed before it can be used.

    They can update picture quality, file types and whatever else they feel like. But if someone has a poor quality screen, or as is the problem with most computers running Windows: bad calibration, having HD Pictures won't make a blind bit of difference for your average user. I suspect the difference will hardly be noticable in the best of conditions anyway?
