The Brief Lifespan Of DAT

DAT was widely used in the professional audio recording industry in the 1990's, and is still used to some extent. Particularly with regard to archives created in the '90, although most labels have a program in place to transfer these tapes to a hard disk-based database. DAT  is used professionally due to its lossless encoding, which allows a master tape to be created that is secure and does not induce tape noise (hiss) into the recording.

The Lutron Energi TriPak

The Energi TriPak solution is ideal for small commercial spaces such as conference rooms, private offices, training rooms, open office space, and any other area that benefits from reduced energy consumption.

Virtual World Calls for Virtual Money

Money - or lack of it - causes the most stress for individuals and family problems.

But since we're now dealing in a near virtual world let's simply go to mobile device money and do away with the billfold that's either half full or half empty.

Ironically, people in third-world countries have been faster to convert to mobile money than those in industrial countries. The challenges? Infrastructure and security. Someone always wants to spoil the party but the transition is underway.

Japan's tech firms face weak TV demand, keep forecasts

Japan's top consumer electronic firms recovered faster than expected from the March earthquake, keeping their full-year profit forecasts despite a weakening TV market and worries about the outlook for the global economy. Video game maker Nintendo Co was a standout disappointment, unexpectedly slumping to its first quarterly operating loss on record, hit by slow sales of its 3DS handheld game player and a strong yen. It now forecasts its lowest annual profit in 27 years. Sony Corp and Panasonic Corp warned of weak TV sales, especially in the United States and Europe, following Philips and Corning Inc in highlighting sluggish demand. Global consumer confidence fell in the second quarter to its lowest level in 18 months as an uncertain economic outlook, a deepening euro zone debt crisis and rising inflation made people cautious, a Nielsen survey showed.

Logitech CEO steps down after money losing Q1, Revue price slashed to $99

After a disappointing Q4 saw Logitech reduce the price of its Revue it revealed today that after a net loss of $29.6 million for the first quarter it is cutting the price of the Revue to $99, as well as saying goodbye to CEO Gerald P. Quindlen. Quindlen had been an outspoken supporter of the Google TV box but according to Logitech this price cut and corresponding $34 million hit to its finances are necessary to "remove price as a barrier to broad customer acceptance." In the midst of these results -- as well as lowered sales in several regions and key products like Harmony remotes -- Chairman and former CEO Guerrino De Luca will assume the role of acting CEO while a long term replacement is sought.
