The second generation of Flip’s MinoHD is known as the premium MinoHD. Is it really better than the original MinoHD and the Ultra HD? Continue reading “Flip Premium MinoHD Review”
It’s an even more joyous day with what appears to HD enabled content on YouTube! Late last night YouTube revamped its website and enabled widescreen video embeds. Now it looks like they’ve gone a step further.
Look at the picture below. Click on it. What do you see? Hint: it’s in the bottom right corner of every video. Look at the watch in normal quality, high quality, HD??? Is that HIGH DEFINITION?
HD-DVD players, look away now because what you see before you is one of Sony’s latest line of Blu-Ray players.
This here (above)-is the Sony BDP-S550 and is the more well endowed of the new players to hit the market in the summer.
It will be able to access new features such as BonusView and BD-Live, which will allow wise Blu-Ray adopters to update their players online via its own ethernet port.
It also has 1GB of storage, 7.1-channel audio outputs and of course there is full 1080p hi-def goodness for the clearest, most vibrant picture possible.
Those wanting to get their mitts on it will have to wait for summer when it will cost $500. Check out the press site for more info.
The Blu-Ray era is well and truly underway.
It had tech-fanatics going at each other, had two major games consoles squaring up and even had Hollywood studios scratching their heads, but now the hi-def format war is over with Blu-Ray coming out on top.
The Tosh announced today they were planning to halt production, but would still give technical support to those with HD-DVD players and discs.
The result is hardly a surprise given that Warner Bros and most recently Best Buy and Wal Mart had given up on HD-DVD.
This could affect the console war too.
Sony’s Playstation 3 is now the most affordable Blu-Ray player around, and since Blu-Ray is now the sole high-definition format- this could increase PS3 sales.
Roll on the next tech-war.
