    PlayStation 3

    Sony appears to be coming up with a winning formula. Amazing what a steep price cut will do, but you can't argue with success. Howard Stringer, Sony's CEO, is on the wires saying Sony sold over 100,000 PlayStation 3 units last week, calling the results "the breakthrough we've been anticipating."

  • Holiday Retail Traffic to Fall 2.5%: Research Firm Wednesday, 14 Nov 2007 | 12:52 PM ET

  • So a week has passed since my first post on the drama surrounding the HD DVD vs. Blu-ray next generation format war. Hundreds of emails, though the pro Blu-ray, anti-Jim emails outnumbered the HD DVD side by better than ten to one. Not sure what message that sends, but maybe I angered the Blu-ray folks more than I satisfied the HD folks.

  • October was not kind to Wal-Mart even with the promotional pricing and marketing campaign that the world's biggest retailer has been pushing. The only sales growth at Wal-Mart stores was at its Sam's Club division (+2.7%) which helped boost the overall Wal-Mart comp to a meager .4% gain.

  • Sony Blu-ray Disc

Yesterday it was Costco in Clifton, NJ. In the past month work has sent me to: a New York City Best Buy, a Miami-area Wal-Mart, two malls in New Jersey and one on Long Island. That's just a few.

I only bought a new iPod when my old one died (Apple customer service leaves a lot to be desired) and I couldn't begin to tell you any details about my TV, other than it fits my entertainment center nicely...
