Sony: Walkman, meet Android

Michael 43

I have a 7 year old Sony Walkman MP3 player, it can play ATRAC, MP3, AAC, Windows files no problem. It's still working and the sound quality still beats any Apple Ipods./touch

DRM ? That's Apple's arena, I think Sonyh ave learnt frm their past mistakes,

In regards to pricing they need to sort it out as I think it's a gret piece of kit..

Apple IP details tech for 'iTV' innards

Samsung TVs ?

They may well be selling alot of LCD TVs, but like the japanese makers they are also losing money on their TV operations, they are being cross subsidied fom other areass of the the company. I think if it wasnt for the cheap WON and the very strong Yen, Samsung wouldn;t be sitting so pretty.

Sony has sold their share of the joint LCD panel with Samsung to Samsung, which is current generation stuff, whilst Sony gets the lump sum, and are also investing to develop their own Next gen panels. Crystal LCD/LED and OLED etc..

Sharp panels ar ealso one of the best in the world,.

Apple hands iPad screen contract to rival Samsung

Sharp unbale to supply wat they invented ?

http://www.reghardware.com/2012/03/12/apple_ipad_3_retina_display_uses_sharp_super_high_aperture_tech/

I think the troubles in japan last year contributes to the supply problem, i think it is more a supply problem in volumes that Apple wanted rather than technological issue....

And as one poster mentioned Apple does have some dodgy business practices..

Sony goes inorganic for 'eye popping' OLED TV rival

Michael 43

Actually, Sony amongst others do not use the word LED TV in their current TV lineup, they use the term LCD with LED back lit... it's only ignorant fools like Tom 35 who shorten it to LED TV and think they've been conned,,

Sony had a joint venture with Samsung for their TV LCD panels, even though they shared the same panels, they used their own electronics to control the panels.. Sony was losing money on their TV operations, partly due to a very stromg Yen, and partly to do with aggressive near cost selling price of Korean makers like LG/Samsung. Sony are free to buy from various suppliers for current Generation LCD panels for TVs now, whilst on the otherhand still investing R&D in their own next Gen panels...

Who's to say it isn;t Renault themselves raising a stink for self publication..

Anonymous Coward,

How can you remotely assume what people do with their 360s and how you can remotely link it to the PS3 is beyond me .. ? Sounds like you are real fanboy -- MS Fanbo

BTW the YLOD is a such a small problem as comparted with RROD..

BTW , the 360s were hacked a long time ago !!

Toyota Auris hybrid e-car

Michael 43

your opinion only

"You're right it doesn't. But any number of diesels do and are more economical than these hybrids in the real world."

where is your source ??

Oh really,? are you comparing like for like..simliar sized as a prius or an Auris..

Do people really get the claimed mpg n their diesel, i mean the avarage driver doing less than 5-0 miles in the mornign to get to work, and tghe engine hasn't even wrmed up before they've arrived. not warming up meaning, diesels engines get clogged up....

my opinion is the medim future is turbo 4 cylinder petrol hybrids, cleaner than any dirty diesel..
