Sony is Also Working on a 'Different Kind of TV Set'

Sony chief executive Howard Stringer says that the company is working on a 'different kind of TV set', according to a WSJ report.

Howard Stringer, speaking at a breakfast hosted by The Wall Street Journal, said TV manufacturers, driven by their desire to rack up market share, have bred an intensely competitive market. As a result, they are scrambling to come up with a new generation of TV sets that will separate them from the pack and command premium prices.

"There's a tremendous amount of R&D going into a different kind of TV set," said Stringer. The CEO also added that he has "no doubt" that Steve Jobs was working on a television set.

"That's what we're all looking for," said Mr. Stringer. "We can't continue selling TV sets [the way we have been]. Every TV set we all make loses money."

Sony is expecting to report a loss of over $1 billion this fiscal year, in part due to its declining TV business.

And what can they do with a TV ?.
* You cannot make it 3D (because is a 2D flat surface
* You cannot change it because it depends on stuff (tv stations, standrds etc)
* Put the INTERNET into it (streaming, social, etc)? - that was done already.

Actually SONY pushed hard for the BluRay. So they did something post VHS.

Apple hasn't since the iPod. (I consider iPhone an iPod you can use to phone home, and the iPad the big-screen iPod). If you see things like that, nothing happened since the transistor. - no new cars (same thing, 4-wheels, one engine), no new media (same thing, has a screen shows you stuff). The internet, that was not expected before WW2 when the transistor was invented.
