Holiday shopping starts today

Bluhdpr For those who have been contemplating whether or not to plunge into the ongoing high-def war between the rival HD-DVD and Blu-ray formats, here's something that might help ease your doubt: This Friday, Wal-Mart is going to be selling the Toshiba HD-A2 player for a measly $98. That's right: $98.

The sale is unadvertised, but it's definitely happening. Trust me when I say until you've seen 2001: A Space Odyssey in HD, you haven't seen it at all (unless you're lucky enough to have seen it at the theater, of course).

Good times. No wonder they aren't advertising it. But I wonder if an HD movie plays any better on a regular (i.e. non HD) TV. If it doesn't, then sadly I'll have to pass up this great deal until I finally get a HDTV.

Hey, Rene, keep us posted on the FT. Lauderdale festival, will you? The Force is weak on this blog. You're a terrific writer and analyst, you should try to update this more than once a month.
