D: All Things Digital may not be as popular an event as CES but it certainly attracts some major names in the technology fields, and has clocked up some fairly serious online headline inches – not least because of the Dell netbook. A number of other stories also reared their heads.
Amazon announced it will launch a for-pay video streaming service that will roll out virtually immediately. In five weeks we will be able to buy streaming videos from Amazon.
Sony CEO Howard Stringer had quite a bit to say. He mentioned the advance of OLED TV technology, and showed off another flexible display that can be twisted, turned, and pretty much everything you would want to do with a display. He also stated that a new PS3 game release in June will use the full capacity of the machine.
Activision, meanwhile, announced Guitar Hero: World Tour. The guitar, bass, drum, and microphone set is a real step away from the guitar only games closer to Rock Band style. It also enables you to compose your own tracks, post the music to the web and enable others to pick it apart at will. Tony Hawk and a few others cranked out a Lenny Kravitz tune on Guitar Hero III.
There’s sure to be more news appearing from D soon.
