An Interesting Day

MSNBC.com's home page this afternoon

In my last post, I talked about the apparently-coming demise of Toshiba's HD DVD video format. Indeed, the writing was on the wall, and today Toshiba pulled the plug on its competitor to Sony's Blu-Ray technology. So it's now official, and I expect we will soon see the holdouts (Universal, Dreamworks, Paramount, & Microsoft) shift over to the Blu-Ray camp.

With so much going on today, I thought it prudent to capture the MSNBC home page for posterity. Not only do we have the HD DVD demise, but also:
  • The start of the hostile proxy takeover of Yahoo! by Microsoft
  • The resignation of the ailing Cuban dictator, Fidel Castro, who has been in charge of that island nation since the Eisenhower administration (10 U.S. Presidents)
  • The showdown in Wisconsin between the first two viable woman and African-American candidates for President of the United States

All in all, an interesting news day.
