My older son, Paul, is kinda bummed that he wasn't able to go with me to Rush's American tour finale last night at Madison Square Garden. Seems he was especially eager to hear "YYZ." That would be "YYZ" as made famous by...

Until now concerns over the transition to digital television, scheduled for 2009, have centered on broadcast-dependent viewers. But satellite viewers may be in for trouble too.

This is what nerds do: after watching another awesome episode of season one of <I>Heroes</I> on HD DVD I cued a firmware update and indeed my Toshiba HD-XA2 found one and started downloading it. I waited up until the update was complete, and then checked the player's setup menu and sure enough, "up to 1080p/24" is now a selectable output resolution.

Is it a really big computer monitor, or a smallish HDTV? Gateway blurred these lines in demonstrating its XHD3000 30" Extreme HD display at CEDIA 2007. Although it only comes in at $1,699, this enormous display features Silicon Optix' top end REALTA processing solution, and features a powerful blend of elegant interface and pure HD power.

I know that technology moves fast these days, but we can hardly get a review of a Blu-ray Disc player out the door before a new model that supersedes it is released. And indeed, I received this Pioneer Elite BDP-94HD in August, just ahead of the rumors that a new player from Pioneer would be making its debut at CEDIA 2007 in early September.

Until now the transition to digital television broadcasting has mainly been about antenna-delivered DTV. But what about the 35 percent of viewers who depend on cable? This week the Federal Communications Commission finally decided on "must carry" rules. All channels on your local airwaves must be available to all cable subscribers, whether their TVs are digital or analog.

Sometimes we say as much by not reviewing one component as we do by reviewing another. There are some components, often made by smaller, high-end manufacturers, that lag behind with technologies that become so essential that lacking them precludes a recommendation for that component by this publication. When we know a recommendation is precluded from the get-go based on a lack of essential technology, there is no point in acquiring the product for review.
