M-bird, a video player competitor of the iPod

The iPod video is a huge success, but is certainly not the last word in video players. Other companies have stepped into the field of video playing devices and created some interesting products.

One of the new products to compete with the iPod video is the M-bird pocket movie player. According to the TechEblog:

Similar in size to Apple’s iPod, the M-Bird Pocket Movie Player features a 2.2-inch LCD display, 4GB hard drive, and support for a variety of video/audio formats. An integrated d-pad makes navigating the interface a breeze. Pricing and availability have not yet been announced.

Play Station 3 coming with 60GB HD

We are little by little getting new pieces of information about the new playStation 3. The new information recently released is that the PS3 will have a 60GB hard drive, enough to hold a large amount of data such as movies, games, pictures, and sounds.

This shows that the PS3 will be well positioned to dispute with Microsoft Xbox 360 for the crown of the best home entertainment appliance.

The information was originally confirmed to Yahoo! games.

Tatung 42" Widescreen Plasma HDTV Monitor reviewed

Widescreen monitors are getting cheaper everyday. This is the trend of the last few years, and if it depends on technology and production costs, the prices are gonna get even better during 2006.

A good example of this trend is the new Tatung 42" Widescreen Plasma HDTV Monitor. This TV set has all the goodies of the more well known (and also more expensive) brands have to offer: 16 : 9 widescreen aspect ratio with 1024 x 768 pixels of resolution. Great brightness of 1000 cd/m2 (which is among the best of its class), and a viewing angle of 160 degrees both in the horizontal and vertical directions. This viewing degree provides an exceptional viewing experience, again not different from what is provided by a SONY, Panasonic, or other famous brands of plasma TV.

For all the specs of this TV set, it seems to be clearly on par with all the latest technology, and frankly even surpassing some of the more established brands. So, when I see such TV sets selling for as low as $2000 in retail stores, I see that plasma technology is getting far beyond the expectations of most people in this area.

Certainly 2006 will be a great year for digital TV, and it is about time to use the opportunity to get some of these nice TV sets and see TV with quality that is higher than ever.
