Because a bunch of jackasses said they wanted to write the videos to DVDs or something and Scoble gave in. There needs to be an extra "High Def." button on selected videos, that way those of us with crappy connections can download and watch without lag
and those people that want to write it to DVD or watch it on their TIVO can do that also.
PS - I don't *REALLY* think you're all jackasses, just 98% of you.
