I've been ranting since last year that the new HD DVD and Blu Ray players were a scam to be avoided. Now the first players are out, including the Toshiba, pictured above, featuring the finest in Soviet styling. It is, essentially, a Linux computer with no hard drive. It takes over a minute to boot up every time you want to watch a movie, and apparently crashes all the time.
Now there is a firmware upgrade that they say should fix some of the problems.
Sit back, relax, enjoy being a beta tester.
