This week, we get our grumpy on by attacking some news stories -- the portion of PS3 owners using their console to watch Blu-ray movies, those terribly loud and annoying commercials, the impending shift to 16:9 LCDs for notebooks and analyst predictions of a "tough road ahead" for tru2way. Our summertime crankiness sated, we then head into gear news: reviews of the Pioneer Elite plasma and HP's MediaSmart Media Center Extender. Speaking of Media Center, we spend some time covering impending changes coming this year, hopefully in two rollouts (with the first one as soon as this month). Finishing up, don't be fooled by the last NFL story -- it's really just an excuse to complain about HBO's lack of content.
