On the train the other day I saw an ad for Sony's new Wireless LCD TVs. It comes with a box you plug your VCR and DVD player into. That box beams the signal to the TV so that you can carry the TV around anywhere you want. Making dinner? Carry it to the kitchen. Washing clothes, put it in the laundry room. Etc.
This Flashlight lasts forever and never needs batteries!!! Pretty Cool! 😊
Here's the latest gadget in Japan. The v@mp. It's a MP3 player, Digital Still Camera, Digital Movie Camera, Television and Portable Video Viewer. I guess the only thing they forgot was a radio tuner.

Acutally I don't know if it rules are not but it looks pretty cool.
I guess it's getting close to winter bonus time because the gadgets seem to be pouring out. Here's one of the things stuff I saw today.
Sony had setup a special shop in Shibuya just to promote this. They call it a "Network Media Receiver". It reads video files off your computer's harddrive over the net and displays them on your TV. It will also handle music and photos. It's controlled through a remote. Assuming your computer supports "wake on lan" which the latest sony computers support then you don't need to leave your computer on. It will start it up if it needs to.
The best part though was Sony made all the girls do their hair like this
I don't know who makes the biggest LCD TV but it might currently be Sharp's 37 incher. I saw it today in Yodobashi camera. I've personally never liked the plasma displays. I can see each pixel on a plasma display as there is a space between each one so for me it's like I'm looking through a wire screen. I was happy to see this LCD TV did not have that problem. To bad it's about $8K!
