Is it time for Toshiba to admit defeat, or should Warner reverse its decision to go Blu-ray and possibly save HD DVD from an untimely demise?

Two rival petitions are gathering momentum online, asking just those questions. Current leader is 'Save HD DVD' with more than 17,000 names; coming up behind is the 'Let HD DVD Die' petition with 6000+ signatures already.

HD DVD fans started the ball rolling after Warner moved over to the Blu-ray camp. They're angry at its proclamation that we consumers had 'clearly' chosen Blu-ray.

On the torch-holding, death-chanting other side, Blu-ray supporters are urging Toshiba to turn off HD DVD's life support machine (ie never-ending price cuts) and hoist the white flag.

As to whether anyone will take notice remains to be seen but, judging by the numbers, there's support out there for HD DVD yet.
