Ep. 55: PS3's Netflix play; Sony's Vaio X; and Halloween horrors Video
Being marketed as a portable, end-to-end HD studio, the VAIO AR190G offers a pretty compelling set of A/V features to back up the claim: in addition to the Blu-ray drive, a 17-inch wide-screen display (WUXGA), an HDMI output, and a FireWire connection, yo
Netflix is planning to tattle on ISPs that throttle its streaming service and Sony announces PlayStation games for Android devices and a brand new PlayStation Portable.
With a sleek design, HD-friendly display, and a Blu-ray drive, the 16-inch Sony Vaio FW270 is a near-ideal portable entertainment center.
