Sony PS3 Coming This Fall

Here in Silicon Valley, with the annual game developers conference in full swing, the industry is buzzing about the Playstation 3, the next generation video game console from Sony. There is a lot of speculation and rumor swirling around this launch by folks in the business or gameland as we like to call it.

From what we can tell this looks like a developer's dream come true. Here's a quick list of why we're excited.

1. Sony announced that the PS3 will ship in November 2006 in the U.S. OK. Time to save up. Christmas season 2006 is going to be crazier this year. Rick will have to fall in line for me on this one!

The Sony PCM-D1 Review

The Sony PCM-D1 is a portable field recorder that features built in electret condenser mics in a stereo X-Y configuration, analog meters, signal limiting, high pass filtering, LCD display, and 4GB of flash memory for storing up to 2 hours worth of stereo sound files recorded at 24bit / 96 KHz. Connected via a USB 2.0 port the PCM-D1 acts like any other removable drive on a PC or Mac for transferring files back and forth.

Sony has been going through a lot of changes trying to bring back the excitement of it's product line in both the consumer and professional markets. The PCM-D1 certainly harkens back to the hip Sony of the 80s with its advertising slogan 'It's a Sony.'

Nickeled and Dimed to Death by TiVo

I'll come out and say it up front: I love my TiVo. There are few products that have fundamentally changed my life -- for better or worse -- and TiVo is one of them. I've recommended TiVo to my family, my friends, and even random people in the TV aisle of the local big box retailer. But it's the same question all the time: "What exactly is TiVo'" And more importantly after explaining it to people: "Why would I pay $13 a month for it, plus the initial cost of the box'"

This may well explain why TiVo, while loved by its customers, only has sold a little over 1 million boxes in nine-year history. (if a 1+ million installed base sounds good, listen to this fact: Apple is reported to be producing 100K iPod nanos a day!
