We've probably never been more excited about CEDIA, and even though next week looks like it might deliver goods at Joe Six Pack prices, we'll just have to see. Meanwhile, this week we're happy to report Blu-ray prices are falling -- both for the hardware (PS3 slim) and software (you know, discs) -- while shoppers are getting familiar with the newfangled HD craze. If only digital downloads would follow suit in terms of pricing, terms, or both. Other than that, we managed to steer clear of too many rants, and Ben even took advantage of the helpful folks at the FCC to set the record straight on clear QAM. Speaking of setting the record straight, we'll be at CEDIA next week, so the show will come out later than usual, and probably without the live Ustream participation. Stay tuned for details.
