As busy weeks go, this one has certainly been something to write home about (or at least a Week in Review about), with CeBIT, PMA and an Apple mega-announcement all taking place. ASUS arguably stole the former show in Germany, with the Eee PC 1008HA "Shell" once again proving that netbooks needn't be the ugly cousins to expensive ultraportable notebooks. For our full CeBIT 2009 coverage, hit the tag.
JVC have announced their latest full-HD camcorder, the JVC Everio GX-X900, which is capable of recording 1080p video and shooting 9-megapixel still images. Measuring just 2.6 x 4.88 x 1.46 inches and weighing 0.66lbs, the Everio X can take 5-megapixel stills (at up to 1/4000 shutter speeds) while recording full-HD video, as well as offering 600fps slow-motion video recording.
Listen up, golden ears; If the Blu-Spec CD didn’t get your attention, the newer join-ventured of JVC’s K2HD audio coding and Japan largest optical disk manufacturer would, at least the price. Yes, the Japanese audio geeks are at it again. Victor Entertainment, a division of JVC has released a trio of Classical audio CD with “Super Excellent Glass” mastering process – a married product of JVC’s k2HD audio processing onto the cutting-edge high durability, high stability and high sound quality reproducibility glass manufacturing process CD from Memory-Tech.

JVC is ahead of the curve, it seems. They have just turned on the very first 720p HD display in Times Square in New York today. The gigantic billboard is actually comprised of three LED displays. One is a standard display and the two others are tickers, one of which circles around a globe.
