I think there were nine stories in this store in Tokyo's Electric Town area. One floor had a Tower Records on it. Another floor had musical instruments, toys, and yet another record store. If you can't find it here, you can't find it anywhere.

Toshiba can offer you an HD-DVD player with a full terabyte of data, the ability to burn HD-DVDs, Japanese hi-def and NTSC tuners, oh yeah, and the user manual that will have you scratching your head until your credit card bill comes. $3,100.

Here's a BluRay drive you can stick in your computer. At $Yen 99,800, less the 10% the store was offering you if you opened up a charge account (I'd be lost reading my monthly statement!), you can have it for about $750. It burns single and dual layer Blues at a 2X rate that'll have you saying, "Wow – this sure is slow!"

There are countless major music studios that have not transitioned successfully to the Digi-Tools age of computers. JVC Victor is not one of them. Getting into their elevator for a music tour, a philosophy that will become clearer as the tour continues is printed on the inside of the elevator so that all visitors and employees can read and remember it in moments when nothing else might be going on.

Pioneer blew everyone away with their new 60" plasma prototypes. They claim better than 20,000:1 contrast. They say they can't measure it any higher given todays test equipment. I wonder what Toshiba is using to measure the 50,000:1 contrast they claim they've achieved with SED?
