New Details on the Microsoft Zune

Thanks to our compatriots over at the Gizmodo, we have some new details on Microsoft’s upcoming Zune media player, including what to expect and which details are really just fantasy.

BenQ Unveils Blu-ray Burner

Wow…that certainly makes a bit of an impression. BenQ’s BW1000 external Blu-ray DVD burner, which sort ofresembles a black Nintendo Wii, will ship this August, so all you early-adopters don’t need to look to internal ATAPI drives for your Blu-ray fix. The device will be able to burn BD-R discs at 2x as well as tripling as a standard DVD and CD-R/RW burner. Reportedly, the writer will also be able to write up to 50 GB of data, which means that the BW1000 should support dual-layer BD-R. Should you choose to purchase one, be prepared to shell out a good deal of cash; the BW1000 retails for $1,022. So choose wisely; it’s either this or a new Macbook…
