Interesting Wired article: The War Within Sony.  Sony is conflicted between being a leading media company (movie studio, record label) and a leading supplier of personal electronics.  A microcosm of the issues facing the media industry as a whole.

Guess what?  There's now a DVD player on the market which plays DIVX video.  This will shift downloaded-movie-watching from the PC to the family room, where the home theater is located.

Meme of the day: The Axis of Weasels.
