I like how Sony has been forced to make its products better because of competing products, not so much being the first and only company with a certain technology.
I am not the biggest fan of Sony, but have backed the Blu-ray format from the beginning. I’ve especially liked how the price of players and movies have dropped quite a bit over the past couple of months, and can’t wait to see further price cuts in the future.
I did feel kind of bad for Toshiba because its HD DVD format died so close to CES in January.
Stringer has impressed me, but I will reserve judgment on his overall brilliance until he is able to turn around Sony’s TV line. If he can do that, and I sort of think he’ll be able to at some point, then Sony can give him another fat bonus check.
