Tech: The Microsoft Courier reborn? Toshiba’s Libretto looks very similar

  • Main difference? It uses Windows 7. Eww. This little device, launched in a limited edition to celebrate Toshiba’s 25th anniversary in the laptop market, has more laptop in its DNA than tablet, though it definitely has aspects of both. Windows 7 just does not seem like the OS for a device like this, though. At least it’s not Windows Vista. source

Tech: The last Blu-Ray holdout, Toshiba, stops holding out

  • Now if they could only convince more people to buy Blu-Ray. The most recent format war, between Sony’s Blu-Ray and Toshiba’s HD-DVD, ended with Toshiba on the losing end last year due to a lack of big-media support. The company has finally given in to the tide, and will have a player on the market by the end of the year. Now, the goal is to get people to buy them – uptake is a little slow, but it helps that prices have fallen significantly over the last year or so. source
