Vmedia for Netbooks looks oddly familiar

Vmedia is planning to release mini optical discs to the world of netbooks. But Vmedia discs looks very similar to Dataplay discs which didn't quite catch on. Neither did Sony's Minidiscs and UMDs. So I don't know how Vmedia plans to make a successful new disc format when others have tried and failed. It also can only hold 1GB currently with 2GB coming soon. Consider you can get SDHC in much larger sizes why would manufactures bother putting this in their netbooks when they can just add an SD Slot instead.
