Freakin' Friday! Sony Portable Blu-ray Player


Portable Blu-ray and DVD players are certainly commonplace these days and more affordable than ever. Sony's latest portable Blu-ray Player has a 9", high-res widescreen LCD, a 180º swivel flip screen and a rechargeable battery that will last about 4.5 hours for those long commutes. The player features an HDMI output for viewing on your HDTV and a USB input offers more accessibility for video, photos or tunes. With support for most video platforms and a price around $200.00, the BDPSX910 comes with an AC adapter, remote and car charger.

James Bond 50th Anniversary Set


Can't get enough of Bond, James Bond? In honor of its 50th anniversary, MGM and Twentieth Century Fox are releasing an impressive Bond 50 box set that includes all 22 films in HD, 9 of them available in Blu-ray for the first time. About 130 hours of bonus content is included in the package as well as an hour of new material. All that you need after that is a few shaken martinis to enjoy a movie marathon.

Sony Overkill at CES 2012


Seems odd that the CES runs early in the year, when having it before the holidays might help electronics companies get potential buyers and journalists/bloggers all fired up. Although this may be the last year for some of them to party in Vegas, many of them came out full guns products blazing.

Sony brought out a gazillion new devices, well, almost that many, including its new line of Bravia HDTVs, some with 3D, Blu-ray players, two with built-in Google TV, and home theaters with Blu-ray as well.

Lucas Reinvents Star Wars, Again

What happens when obsession goes terribly wrong? Just ask George Lucas who never seems to get past 1977's Star Wars. His latest project, the upcoming Blu-ray release, will apparently have such improvements changes as a CGI Yoda, light saber effect adjustment and other audio and video tweaks. The new edition is available for pre-order for a September 16 release and although some of these "improvements" are rumors at this point, they seem to come from several sources and April 1 has already passed. So we just say "Stay the same you should, Yoda."

By the way, if you are a budding filmmaker, script writer or critic, you can participate in Amazon Studios, where you can screen test future films and vote on them. We are speaking some serious prize money for the winners of cash awards.

Sharp to Release AQUOS Blu-Ray 3D


As we have mentioned before, when we covet here at NAV, one of the top choices has to be the Sharp AQUOS line with pictures so impressive it is difficult to tear us away from electronics departments in warehouse clubs. So the release of three new Blu-ray recorders, coming in October and November, makes us practically Pavlovian. The BD-HDW65, BD-HDW63, and BD-HDS65 support 3D and their new standard BDXL, with the main difference being in the amount of storage.
