Superficial Resemblances

Here comes that refill ...My latest Sympatico/MSN DVD column is up, wondering — among other things — why anyone would think the world needs a remake of “The Last House on the Left”.

Oh, right. Money.

And speaking of money, check this out: Sony’s just announced a new, slimmer PlayStation 3, to retail for about $100 less than the existing model.

Ah, but wait: They’ve just dropped the price on the existing model, too! So you can now buy the best Blu-ray player on the market for $299, or wait just a week or so and buy a smaller unit (with a bigger hard drive) for the same price.

I understand it also plays games.
