Rolling in Sony

The Slug attended a Q&A with Stan Glasgow, president of Sony Electronics, at The Rainbow Room yesterday. Stuffy! Most of the face time was spent previewing what's to come at the Consumer Electronics Show next January — a 25,000-square-foot booth with the highest tower allowed in the convention —  and discussing high-definition television. After all, if you shelled out $599 for a PS3 (and/or beat someone up for it),  don't you want your games and Blu-Ray discs to meet their high-definition potential?

Glasgow said Sony surveys show most people — file The Slug under "most people" — don't understand HD television, especially the difference between 720p and 1080p screen resolutions. (Sony has a nifty presentation with their explanation here.) And what did Glasgow have to say about that massive PC battery recall? Well, this: "We could've fought it more. I think Sony took the high road on that. The good news is it's past us." Good. Now make more PS3s!
