[real-eyes] Re: two files on the accessible Panasonic TV. They have 30 models for u)

Hi Duyahn,

Well, as far as Blu Ray is concerned I can only say that I believe they 
sound better and they probably have better video as well but that is only 
based on what I've heard.  They also cost more than a DVD HD disk.

You know, while I am writing this I got to thinking I'll bet they could 
build a Panasonic Blu Ray player so if plugged into one of the new Panasonic 
TV's that it could read the menus etc.  That would be so cool.

Flat screen prices have fallen quite a bit in the last few years.  I know we 
could get a similar set to the one we have now for $150 or possibly $200 
cheaper.  Prices do vary from depending on make/model/type.  Panasonic has 
said in that podcast that they are willing to absorb the cost of adding 
speech so we shouldn't see much if any increase due to adding speech.  There 
are also going to be sets coming out that you can speak to since they will 
also have voice recognition.  I don't know if any of the new Panasonic sets 
will have that though but I assure you it is coming.

Thanks,
Jim

I have a talking Panasonic phone myself Jim. I guess I'm so used to
technology being so expensive that no one can afford it. I have never
experienced a blue ray player. Is the sound better then a dvd? I know they
were trying to make DVD's accessible to but, I think that had a bit of a
snag.
