About 400,000 Bravia TVs are affected by the recall
If you start me up; If you start me up I'll never stop

If you bought a Sony Bravia LCD or rear-projection screen TV within the past year, you may have a little bit of a problem on your hands. Roughly 400,000 of the TVs which were sold in North America, South America and Asia cannot be turned off or come of out standby mode once they pass 1,200 hours of use.

According to a Sony, users of affected Bravia models can go to its website where they will find instructions on how to have materials sent to them to update their TVs. Owners of Grand Wega models must use that same website to schedule a Sony authorized technician to come to their home to perform the update (all on Sony's dime of course).

Sony is providing the software update at no charge to owners of affected televisions through March 1, 2008. Terms of Sony's limited warranty otherwise continue to apply. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and will continue to provide superior customer service for Sony televisions.

That's why Samsung is spending $2 Billion to Build a New FAB in Austin Texas...

$300 Million is just a speed bump dude...

If you want to talk about price fixing, Just 7 years ago, I was charged $500 for my Intel Pentium 200mmx when the factory cost was NO WHERE NEAR $500.

Samsung and Hynix were just the linchpins in the Government crackdown of foreign companies that were doing so well here.

The same Company Micron who induced the investigation DESPERATELY tried to buy Hynix (notably their Eugene FAB) for dirt cheap price. When that failed, the memory investigation ensued.

No matter in which ever way Micron tried to gain the edge, they failed. Look where Micron is and look where Samsung is... Also, Hynix is really well these days as well. They're even thinking about building a new FAB in Eugene as well.

Now compare that with Sony... Unlike their automobile counterparts, such as Toyota, Sony is pretty much getting hammered single handedly by Samsung and Apple is throwing nice little jabs at 'em (ipod) and they will soon dig their own grave with the PS3...

Bookmark this page, and read it after 2 years... you'll see what I mean.
