In a turnabout from the traditional consumer electronics paradigm in which the hardware is given away for free or at drastically reduced prices in order to entice potential subscribers to sign on the dotted line and pay juicy monthly fees to the content provider, the HD Radio Alliance is now promoting the availability of a pricey HD Radio add-on for car stereos that will enable users to access free HD Radio content and services.

Canon's new HV20 HD Camcorder joins the ever growing field of consumer-oriented high-definition camcorders. Although it's not as small nor as inexpensive as Sanyo's $699 720p Xacti HD2 MPEG4 HD camcorder, at $1,099 the 1920 x 1080 Canon entry includes enough features and performance that it's a significant bargain for the money.

Paying premium prices to sit in the exclusive Club Level at Miami's Dolphin Stadium during this year's Super Bowl means you won't have to actually watch the game from your primo perch. Instead, you'll be able to munch crackers and caviar while spilling champagne on yourself, all in front of one of eight 103" Panasonic Professional 1080p HD plasma displays (TH-103PF9UK).

The biggest bang for the box.

I was smitten with Polk's I-Sonic tabletop system when I first laid eyes (but no hands-this was a prototype) on it at a Polk press conference. The strong fixation, no doubt, grew out of my need to replace an aging Bose Wave radio that had served me well but was clearly at its watts' end. I was also enticed by the unusually swanky set of features (a built-in DVD player, XM capability, and HD Radio). And then, of course, there was the fact that I couldn't get my hands on one; exclusivity is often enticing.

Getting Morel of a good thing.

Released from the boxes of thousands upon thousands of plasma and LCD TVs was a nasty disease that's induced feverish thoughts of flatness and smallness in the minds of otherwise good and decent people, making them forget how important audio is to a home theater system. (That rumbling sound is Paul Klipsch rolling over in his grave.) For these poor, deluded folks, speakers are not much more than a flat-panel-TV accessory.
