  • DVDs Not DOA Just Yet! Expect One For Christmas Tuesday, 4 Dec 2007 | 5:13 PM ET
    DVD's for sale

    Everyone's been talking about how DVDs are dying, and that nobody's buying the archaic discs. But guess what, you'll probably get a whole bunch as gifts this year. There were more DVDs sold this Thanksgiving than any previous year, up 6 percent from the same weekend in 2007.

  • Sony Blu-ray Disc

    Could it be a "black-and-blue" Friday for Blu-ray? There are rumblings about a big announcement coming from Wal-Mart that could give a big boost to HD-DVD. I'm hearing that the company will begin selling the Toshiba HD-A2 for $98 in a special one-day, in-store secret sale. The unit sells for $198 at Circuit City and Amazon, so this is a steep discount.

    Malibu is so beautiful, and so far from the grind of LA traffic, it's a natural fit for Hollywood moguls and celebrities who want peace and quiet on their private beach, and the ritziness of the local Malibu Country Mart, which of course is home to a Nobu sushi restaurant. The dozens of high powered Hollywood honchos and are now suffering from the terrible wildfires.

  • DreamWorks Vs. Viacom: A Real Throw Down Friday, 28 Sep 2007 | 10:47 AM ET

    I love these Hollywood showdowns. Media moguls know how to slap each other in the face more publicly than perhaps any other group. Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen, just gave Viacom's top brass one of those slaps.

    HD DVD player and HD DVD-ROM

    After Michael Bay declared on his blog that he was refusing to direct "Transformers 2" because he was so upset about Paramount ditching the Blu-ray format to be exclusive to HD DVD, Bay has changed his tune. He followed it up with a post saying he'd overreacted, had been convinced by some Blu-ray fans. He says he was convinced to support HD because he learned that HD had cheaper players--around that $200 magic number.

    Toshiba HD DVD

    Another battle in the very long war. For years Sony's Blu-ray has been battling with Microsoft and Toshiba-backed HD DVD. And everyone--the studios, the disc and player manufacturers, and consumers--is just dying for one format to emerge victorious and the other format to fall the way of the BetaMax. HD DVD just scored an unexpected win, after Blu-ray had taken the lead. DreamWorks Animation and Viacom's Paramount (including DreamWorks Studio) just committed to releasing their films...
