  1. Toshiba is hoping to take the television market to a whole new level later this year with the introduction of a 55-inch model based on the powerful Cell multimedia processor. The new Cell Regza 55X1 uses a variant of the chip found in the PlayStation 3 and some high-end computer servers from IBM, enabling "ultra-high-speed processing and recording, enhanced navigation and seamless network interactivity."

    Why can't the PS3 do anything that sounds even half as impressive as this monster, 8 channels at once??? Thats a whole lot of TV, those crazy Japanese sure do like to watch their TV.

    What a beast of a TV, I don't know if theres ever 8 things on TV worth watching at any one time though. Also how does one hook up 8 separate channels to a TV?

  8. So, one needs a mini reactor to power this beast? :p

    With 8 grown-up movies playing at the same time, I can get back to work in seconds! Of course, for $11,200, work will need to pay me well.
     
  10. Remember that scene in Back to the Future Part II with the video wall and Marty watching all those channels at once. I guess we're there.
