Blu-Ray v. HD-DVD II ?
« on: January 10, 2008, 05:44:36 PM »

So......just saw this from the CES show. I happen to be involved in standards work in my job so it caught my eye. I seriously doubt Sony has a shot with this particular strategy but they like to be their own dog.:

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/22594777/

LAS VEGAS - The dream of eliminating the ratís nest of wires connecting your computer to your printer and other peripherals could be turning into a nightmare.

Even as the first wireless USB systems are reaching the market, drawing a lot of attention at the International Consumer Electronics Show this week, Sony Corp. has thrown a wrench into the works by unexpectedly announcing what looks very much like a competing, incompatible standard.

The confusion comes as some of the biggest technology companies ó including Intel Corp., Microsoft Corp., Hewlett-Packard Co. and Samsung Electronics ó have created a format to cure one of the biggest headaches involved in running a computer.

LOL

Why hasn't anyone done anything about eliminating the bigger rat's nest behind all the A/V equipment?

As long as I can get Justin Timberlake on Blu-ray I'm happy. 

Check out the gomers on the discussion thread.  LMAO.

Agreed. This is an odd one for sure. Going up against Intel, Microsoft and Samsung?? Not to mention everybody else who hooks in to a PC via USB that will get in line behind those gorillas.

Wow, that is just dumb on Sony's part. This is not going to put a dent on the USB market should it materialize.

 Don't Know Doesn't this just open the door to some third party getting rich on making Sony to USB/wireless adapters?

perhaps they're invested in proprietary rechargable batteries for wireless usb devices as well

I believe my PS2 is the last Sony anything that I will purchase.  It's the only thing in my house still Sony.  When it dies, Sony dies in this household.
