Just last week, Hitachi decided to pull the plug on their domestic TV production business by year-end, but that doesn’t mean the company doesn’t go out with a bang. A total of six Hitachi Wooo TVs were announced [JP] in Japan today, with the 50-inch 3D model P50-GP08 stealing the show.
The plasma TV might very well be Hitachi’s last self-produced flagship model, and a look at the spec list reveals this is actually regrettable:
- 50-inch 3D plasma screen with full HD resolution
- Pixel Manager EX engine for clearer 3D images
- contrast ratio: 5,000,000:1
- 5 TV tuners
- 500GB HDD integrated (removable)
- DLNA support
- 4 HDMI slots
- motion sensor that automatically turns the TV off after the user leaves the room (after 5-60 minutes)
- web connectivity (i.e. for video on demand, access to Yahoo Japan etc.)
- “Wooo Remote for iPhone/iPad” app to be released later this month (for accessing the TV’s functions, checking the TV program, playing back recorded material, etc./see below)
Hitachi plans to start selling this beauty in Japan for $ 4,200 on August 27. The company hasn’t said yet whether the TV will be sold abroad, too.

It was with much celebration that every geek’s favourite video player — VLC — made its way onto both the iPad and the iPhone, so it is with a heavy heart that I write this post.
Over the weekend, iLounge received word that RÃ©mi Denis-Courmont, one of the primary developers of the VLC Media Player, sent a copyright infringement notice to Apple.
“Whaaaa!?” I hear you cry, “but that doesn’t make sense!” Well, the reasoning behind it is that it’s violating the GNU General Public License (GPL) that VLC is distributed under.
Amazon adds video to Kindle e-books on iPad-iPhone
Amazon.com has updated its Kindle application allowing audio and video clips to be embedded in electronic books served up on Apple’s popular iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch gadgets.
I don’t care about 99% of browser functions. Plug-ins are nice, but what I use most on a daily basis are tabs. And that one feature makes the Atomic Web Browser ($1) better than Safari/iCab browsers on the iPad/iPhone. More »
