Sharp Developing 3-Layered Blu-ray Disc

blu-ray_disc_logo.jpg

Sharp is working on a 100GB, triple-layered Blu-ray disc. With the added space, instead of holding a mere movie or two, it can contain an entire season of your fave TV series. That equals out to 12 hours of terrestrial digital TV or 8.6 hours of satellite digital broadcasts. The new format is called VR-100BR1 and will be available in Japan sometime this month for $60.00. Whether it is compatible with current players remains to be seen.

Another blow for Blockbuster as they have been de-listed and suspended from trading by the New York Stock Exchange after refusing a reverse stock split that would have adjusted their shares from $.18 to above the $1.00 threshold. The company has one month to get out of debt although it still seems that bankruptcy will be their ultimate end.

Freakin' Friday! Aiptek 3D Photo Frame

aiptekframe.jpg

A while back, Aiptek introduced their i2 3D Camcorder and now they have released a digital Photo Frame to go with it. The 7" parallax LCD display can show images and videos taken by the i2 or other 3D cam without the viewer needing glasses. You can get both for ~$400 when the frame is released in August, certainly a less expensive deal than opting for a 3D TV.
