That in turns reminds me of the late 70s and early 80s when they were struggling to add new features to VCRs to get people to plonk their hard-earned money into their model instead of someone else's, and back then the biggest selling point seemed to be trick play features; freeze frame and picture search, features that were part of the Laserdisc standard from the get go but the VHS and Betamax arms really, really wanted to offer to their consumers as well.
