Could The US War on Terrorism Mean A Peak In Home Entertainment Sales? September 11, 2001, changed everything. Globally, people changed the way they act, the way they travel, the way they conduct business and so much more. The general population, Americans especially, are more likely than ever to stay at home looking for entertainment since the World Trade Center and Pentagon tragedies.

Staying at home seems safe and watching TV helps the world deal with its pain and anger over such unthinkable acts.

For the 2001-02 season 65 NHL games will be broadcast in high quality HDTV on HDNet, channel 199 on DirecTV.

Panasonic introduced their new PT-50PD3 HDTV plasma TV today which boasts the claim of having the highest contrast of any plasma to date at 3000:1. Contrast is a key issue in flat panel designs with one of the biggest knocks on the super-slender monitors being their lack of black levels as compared to traditional CRT TVs. The PT-50PD3 is HDTV capable for both 720p and 1080I sources and is priced at $15,995.

Universal Music Group, the largest record company in the world, has just announced they plan to begin issuing CDs in October that contain special software to prevent them from being digitally copied or "ripped" into computer files. This means that you’ll no longer be able to make personal backup copies if you own these discs, or create MP3 files to store on your computer. A huge promotional push has been put on by Apple to encourage people to put "rip, mix and burn" music on your computer but it seems the record companies world prefer that you only do so with your own original material and not their copywritten discs.
