So, Sam, have you had a chance to breathe yet? It seems like you've been going, well, forever on all the Spider-man projects, especially Spider-Man 3. This is the longest movie cycle I've ever worked on. But yes, now I have a chance to breathe and spent time with my family, do some writing, and read some great books. I'm really enjoying myself.

Way back when, say July of this year, the holiday shopping season seemed poised to be make or break time for the format war, and HD DVD in particular. Blu-ray was rolling along, outselling HD DVD handily in software, and looking to a holiday season with a broad number of exclusive to the format titles that would mop the floor with poor HD DVD, and leave it in the scrap heap next to the BetaMax.

We've almost become jaded with the rapid rollover of high-definition disc players. Some manufacturers are now on third generation models, and ready to launch a fourth generation at the January 2008 CES. But even with that, Panasonic surprised everyone a few short weeks ago with the announcement of the DMP-BD30, its second-generation design. While a number of significant mid-year revisions to the DMP-BD10, the company's first player, resulted in its re-badging as the DMP-BD10AK, it remained essentially the same design throughout production.
