I need one of these in my office to keep out nagging employees and salespeople.

Display-makers Sony Corporation and Samsung Electronics announced today that they have signed a deal to build a massive new LCD production facility capable of manufacturing 46 and 50 inch LCD displays. The new facility can crank out up to six 50″ or eight 46″ LCD panels from a single glass sheet.

This could be a huge breakthrough (if the manufacturers will adopt it, that is…)
The Nikkei Net Interactive reported over the weekend that Ricoh is working on a single device which can play both Blu-Ray and HD DVD disks.
From the “early adopters get screwed” file… The folks over at MaxConsole have received copies of an anonymous and a (fuzzy) image of a purported HDMI port on what looks sort of like the back on an Xbox 360 MOBO.
