Day 567 { Typhoon # 18 Coming / Toshiba's Cell Regza TV } Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Day 567 { Typhoon # 18 Coming / Toshiba's Cell Regza TV }

So on Monday while at the bible study get together thingy, I heard the presenter saying something about 1 of the visiting girls going to take a plane to China... She then mentioned that there is a typhoon down by that side, closer to Taiwan... I heard but didn't pay it much attention until YESTERDAY !!! when my friend said a typhoon is heading straight for us....

Today at work, everyone was watching the progress of the typhoon as soon as they got a break to go on the computer... The typhoon is predicted to head straight over my prefecture.. And guess what???? Everybody is expected to be at work tomorrow!!! Unless there is a dead elephant blocking the way to go to work or some other weird thing happens, we all are expected to be at work.... Actually, in the back of my mind, I would not mind a day at home :)



Toshiba's Cell Regza TV

Toshiba Corp. unveiled Monday its first Regza liquid crystal display television powered by the Cell processor, which allows viewers to record up to eight channels at the same time.

The 55-inch high-definition TV is expected to go on sale at the beginning of December at a market price of around ¥1 million.

The Cell Regza uses the same Cell Broadband Engine chip used in Sony Corp.'s PlayStation 3 game console, which was codeveloped by Toshiba, Sony and IBM Corp.

It allows viewers to record up to around 26 hours of programming, which can be stored on a 3-terabyte hard drive.The TV can also display up to eight channels simultaneously. The panel is equipped with backlights that use light-emitting diodes delivering high contrast.It can also reproduce video content downloaded from the Internet with enhanced clarity and sharpness, the company said.
