How about a push for high-intelligence TV? Filming "survivor" or "deal or no deal" in high-definition or even 3D won't improve the quality by much. 3D will not take off if it requires special glasses. In any case, it will mostly be used to put explosions and such "in your face", and will just be another "gimmick" to detract from good writing and good acting. (And I won't even go into the parallax angle vs. focal length argument, which is the source of many headaches from watching 3D films.)

At what price will YOU will buy a Blu-ray drive, reader??? In our December survey, Blu-ray tied for third (with smart phones) among consumer products readers said they would buy for the holidays. The winner at 45% was NONE...See http://www.eetimes.com/pollArchives/showPoll.jhtml?surveyno=267801002

If you factor in the economy, I would scale down the 'magic price' from $199 to $149. At this price there will be a total shift from DVDs to Blu Rays

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
