Monster man eating fish found in UK

Man eating fish

This fish is as scary as it looks and has been giving the jitters to scary Brits ever since it was discovered by a local fisherman. The giant monster chomps anything and everything with its huge set of razor sharp teeth! Just look at this thing… grimacing killing machine…seems like it wants to bite your nose straight out of the computer screen. Read more about this deadly fish in the Sun News.

Blue-Ray beats HD DVD in the format war

Finally… after losing the VHS vs Betamax format war to Matsushita in the 70s, Sony has bounced back to win the high definition DVD war with Toshiba. Sony learned from its earlier mistake of ignoring “content” for “technology”. Everyone knows that Betamax was a better video tape format than VHS. But VHS got the nod of Hollywood! And once content flood the markets, VHS sales just sizzled. (It also got a boost from the porn industry!).

This time, Sony did the right deals with Hollywood and the last nail on HD-DVD was Time Warner going ahead with Blue Ray, leading to Wal-Mart dumping HD-DVD in favour fo Blue-ray discs in its stores. While “Content” was king in the 80s, the late 90s brought in the era of “Distribution”. You can’t sell what you can’t distribute, and consumers can’t buy what they can’t get! Its as simple as that. And when the earth’s largest retail store, Wal-Mart decides to stock only Blue-Ray, then Toshiba must wind up HD DVD asap!

Anyways, it’s good for consumers that one format has one, as it has saved billions of dollars of economic waste in stocking two formats. Soon all Laptops, XBOs, Wiis, Playstations, DVD pplayers can all have one format.
