Sony's BDP-S1, their first Blu-ray player

It's probably not going to be much better (or worse) than any of the other spanking new Blu-ray players being announced at this year's CES, but it's of no small significance that Sony's gone gold with their first Blu-ray disc player, the DBP-S1. It's got a dual-layer lens for up to 50GB of storage capacity, read support for BD-R (recordable) and BD-RE (rewriteable -- it'll be an annoying adjustment to stop calling discs "-RW") and 1080 progressive-scan output. We're through the looking glass here, people.
