September 2007 Monthly Round Up For TVSnob
September has been an exciting month for both TVSnob and the television industry. With the continuous move by industry giants and startups alike into the so-far harsh terrain of web TV, there seems to be new products and innovative business models debuting on a weekly basis. But, of course, the industry isn't there yet so let's begin in the present.
We started off the month with Vizio become the number one HDTV seller in the United States. Also in the first week Apple released its new generation of iPods and the long awaited Touch Screen iPods.
We saw evidence that the set-top box market will continue to explode, at least for another 3 years or so until after the end of analog signals.
Sony continues to be innovative with announcements of the PlayTV tuner and the enigmatic Drive. PS3 prices are also rumored to be lowering.
The HD DVD/Blu-ray battle rages on and Sharp Corporation made a move by announcing the upcoming release in Japan of a Blu-ray recorder with a whopping 1-terabyte hard drive!
In the second half of the month, things got really interesting as Samsung was named the top manufacturer of HDTVs in the world. Apple blundered with the first software update for the iPhone which disabled thousands of phones belonging to users that had either used an unlock hack to access other cellular networks than AT&T or installed third-party applications. This drama will play out well into October, if not beyond.
TVSnob also saw a new editor jump on board and begin to cover not only the world of home entertainment television technologies, but also the developing world of web and mobile TV.
October looks to be a fresh start for TVSnob. We'll have a greater mix of informative content covering all aspects of the television industry while still maintaining our up-to-date product reviews. We'll also begin to unleash some great stuff to get you all prepared for Christmas and it's inevitable TV tech buying needs.
Please come with us as TVSnob attempts to move into position to be one of the premier TV tech blogs on the web. Consider subscribing to TVSnob.com!
