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.

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.

As DVD sales decline, Walmart.com adds Vudu streaming

It's been about 18 months since Walmart bought Vudu, but as demand for physical media declines, the big box retailer is finally marrying the online video service with its website. By doing so, it's hoping to introduce its customers to a new way of watching movies and getting them to spend money on digital copies instead of buying the DVD. Steve Nave, SVP and general manager of Walmart.com, said the decision to buy Vudu was made as the retailer realized that there was a rapid shift in consumer behavior from purchasing physical media to streaming content online. The acquisition was made to help better position Walmart and its web property as this shift occurred. The result of that purchase can now be seen at Walmart.com. Users shopping online for DVDs and Blu-ray discs on the site will now also have the option of buying or renting digital copies of titles that are available as part of the Vudu streaming library. Once purchased, those movies can then be accessed either through the Walmart website, Vudu.com or on any of the 300-plus connected devices that the Vudu streaming service is available on.

Apple rumored to be making a bid for Hulu

Apple, which is sitting pretty on an Uncle Scrooge-sized pile of $76.2 billion in cash, is rumored to be eyeballing making a bid in the upcoming Hulu auction. Apple is currently the world's second largest company, and surely figures it needs to put that cash to use, especially with an enterprise as tantalizing as the Hulu video service is. Hulu would add a subscription service to Apple's portfolio, which, valuable as it is on its own, could potentially flourish within the highly-insulated and interconnected tech ecosystem Apple has put so much work into creating. Hulu also offers Apple an excellent opportunity to jump headlong into the subscription-based streaming video marketed that's been dominated with much aplomb by Netflix until that company's recent dust-up with subscribers over upcoming rate changes.
