In the first part of this analysis ("How Lack of Competitive Analysis, Nintendo Caused Blu-Ray's Victory"), Rob Enderle of the Enderle Group lamented the lack of competitive analysis organizations in technology companies and suggested that, had Toshiba properly gamed out what Sony was likely to do and applied that to its execution strategy, it likely would be on the winning side rather than the losing side right now.

In the second part, Enderle examines Toshiba's remaining assets and liabilities, and he suggests five choices Toshiba could do next for HD DVD to survive or even make a comeback.

sounds like a real company man
"Until the buyer actually buys products at a high rate, this market could yet change. My view is that it is still most likely to move to downloads next, probably connected to a cable or DSL offering, rather than a game system or standalone set-top box "

HD DVD could come back easily.
Throw a Billion each at WB, Fox, and Disney and see what happens.
Throw another 500 million at Paramount and Uni to keep them preoccupied and then call it day.

Money always talks.
We know Toshiba and MS both have the money to do that.
Then set new prices for any new 1080p HD DVD player at $150 and also set all HD DVD prices at $19.99
That in it's self would shake things up because right now players cost a bundle and movies cost way too much BD and HD.

Too bad everyone couldn't go format neutral and just let the best player win.

They could invent a time machine, go back and fix the deal they had with the blu-ray folks for a unified hd media.

im sure toshiba's demographics and research and development teams have been waiting for this information so they could make a speech at CES.

what a self important insignificant douche.

I read his article, all of them are valid points but he missed out a major flaws. Do you actually think Sony going to sit there and letting Toshiba pulled all the stunts? Sure it's easy to say to go after this and that, but your major competitor is not taking a nap either.

This is like planning a attack regardless of what your enemy move is.
