Youtube to Bump Up to 1080p or Resolutions Gone Wild!

It was announced Friday that YouTube has decided to beat a dead horse and stick one to television by enhancing their video-processing capabilities to full on 1080p HD resolution. Really YouTube? Is it absolutely necessary for me to see these following videos in jaw-dropping clarity?

Granted, it’s not going to improve the resolution of the videos already uploaded (except for some of the 720p footage which is being upgraded), but nonetheless: are the world’s coming memes really required to be seen so clearly? Can’t I watch a video of a kid igniting himself with fireworks without seeing his skin charring? Can I watch a movie’s trailer without counting the pores in the main character’s forehead?

YouTube says “no,” making certain to take a step forward which my children will undoubtedly take for granted. I can already imagine trying to explain to them what a VCR was, let alone that videos on YouTube used to look like any given episode of The View in which appears Barbara Walters. So I’m told.
