Re: TV

3D video feeds and projections are not standardized yet. Until there's a clear format winner, I wouldn't drop a single dollar in that market. Paying for cutting edge technology now that's rendered completely useless by platform wars just down the road is too bitter a pill for me to take.

So yeah. You're better off saving your money now, or spending it on a higher quality 1080p TV & HD source. Neither of those will be garbage-worthy for some time.

I disagree. My HD-DVD player player makes a great hutch for my wobbly dinig room table. Leveled it out completely, and it doesnt move anymore.

Heh. I remember a few years ago when we were looking for a new DVD player. We were in the store and they had one last HD-DVD add on to the 360 left so I grabbed it. My wife said "there are more blu-ray titles so we should get a blu-ray player". Fast forward to a few months later and the HD-DVD was pretty much dead.

I won't admit it to this day but she was right.

Both Sony and Toshiba tried to push their standards, it's just that Sony pushed harder. Technically Sony and all its partners.
