Sony’s foray into video glasses could succeed

tl;dr: It’s a consumer grade device, don’t expect miracles.

Last week I got my Sony HMZ-T1, Sony’s new video glasses / visor product. Having seen their PR and having read a few reviews, I was already not expecting an Amazing style immersive experience. But I was curious nonetheless.

While the device setup is generally very simple and intuitive, fitting the thing on your head is not. The trick is to fit the front first, then adjust the straps, otherwise you have no clue as to how to adjust them.

Watching a DVD on the glasses is definitely an enjoyable experience as it does indeed give you the “portable cinema” experience. I have yet to try 3D BDs, but I trust they’ll measure up.

In the end though, this is not an Apple device and as such does remind me a little too much of cheap Japanese kids’ toys. It seems that in an effort to make the device affordable, Sony had to cut corners after having spent the bulk of the budget on the screens that make the magic possible.

So while Sony deserves much praise for having accomplished a great feat this early, the device category still has a long way to go. So until an Apple grade device becomes the norm in the $500 – $900 RRP range, Sony would do well to produce a tech enthusiast version made of better materials and equipped with a better rounded feature set in the $1,000 – $2,000 RRP range.

I love my HMZ-T1, but I want more.

Occupy are not the solution: they embody the problem – Telegraph Blogs

Occupy are not the solution: they embody the problem – Telegraph Blogs.

Delingpole echoes my previous comments and adds some helpful videos. The occupy movement is a marxist communist horde of miseducated brats who have no idea of how the world actually works.

The essential flaw in any communist is always that they ignore the glaring weaknesses of their preferred system of coercion (communism is coercion, not government), namely that communism perpetuates misery whereas libertarian governments produce wealth and stability.

Take the GDR, communism’s showcase. Sure, all kinds of goods were available, but none of them all the time. And if communism truly were the perfect system, why was the MfS / Stasi so powerful and ever-present?

Freedom and liberty are natural, ideals that conform with what is. Marxism, leninism and communism in general are artificially generated systems of coercion that create a class of untouchables that live entirely different lives from the great masses who live in abject poverty.

So as Delingpole correctly says, the occupy movement is ironically in favor of the status quo. It is therefore no wonder they have so many friends in the Social Democratic parties of the West.

A great video that sums up liberals’ childish and deaf, dumb and blind devotion to that unamerican commie.
