As great a format as Blu-ray is, it can still be difficult to get people on board when their favorite films have yet to be released.  Among those hotly anticipated films, more than a few of them come from director Steven Spielberg. Thankfully, the wait will soon be over for those craving his 1993 masterpiece 'Jurassic Park.'  The original film and its two sequels will be hitting Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.  The films have, of course, been completely remastered and you'll be able to enjoy 7.1 channel surround sound.

While Hulu itself may not be a big money maker, the opportunities licensing deals and streaming infrastructure open up a world of possibilities to potential buyers.

Budget display manufacturer, Westinghouse, jumped into the 3D pool at CE Week in New York City, with the announcement of its first 3DTV, the 47-inch W47S2TCD.  Unlike most 3D displays on the market, Westinghouse has decided to go with passive glasses display technology, rather than active.  Passive glasses 3DTVs don't offer full 1080p/per eye stereo 3D available with active technology, but both the passive (polarized) glasses and the televisions themselves tend to be more affordable.
