The high-definition disc format war is over, but the real losers arenít those who bought HD-DVD movies or players but Toshiba, the company behind the bested standard. The company has announced today that their net profit this past quarter dropped an astonishing 95 percent, thanks to losses prompted by the format pull-out. Overall, net profit scraped in at 1.25 billion yen (US$12 million), versus 26.17 billion yen this time last year.

Toshiba also blamed a drop in the price of flash memory chips for their ailing profits. Revenue overall for the quarter was 3-percent lower than last year, at 2.09 trillion yen (US$20billion). Total profit for the financial year up until the end of March 2008 was 127.4 billion yen (US$1.2billion), a fall of 7 percent.

Is there any real reason you had to make three individual HD DVD threads, other than the obvious extra points you’re scamming because of it?

Of course Toshiba lost money when they abandoned their investment, that’s just how business works.  There’s nothing to discuss here, you’ve basically copy-pasta’d a short news article.

Just watch out for similar topics you’re posting about.  Generally they’ll fit perfectly in a single thread and make it easier for everyone to keep it all straight, instead of thinking something was posted in one thread when it’s actually in the other or other such mix ups.
