Rachel King writes about a new 3D Blu-ray player from Samsung.

“The BD-C8000 has actually been out since July with the retail price of $499, but it’s had an extra introduction at a special event in New York. That’s a big price tag for a portable gadget, but the Samsung device has some quality specs, including: 1080p HD video playback, 1GB of memory, Wi-Fi, three-hour batter life, and DLNA support.”

An anonymous person shares his/her thoughts on former HP CEO, Mark Hurd.

“’Mark Hurd was an immoral bean counter with no personality besides arrogance and a complete disregard for people and outright disdain for the “HP Way”. I currently work at HP and have seen the changes in culture go from one of pride and giving 100% – – to a now miserable bitter and inefficient work force that consistantly misses SLAs due to cut backs. Customers come dead last, and shareholders and stock value are the only thing that matter.’”
