    A little something that came in my email which someone out there might find interesting:

    HITACHI LAUNCH MULTI-LINGUAL DVD WRITER

    In an attempt to help ease consumer confusion in
    the crowded and complicated world of writable DVD
    standards, Hitachi has announced plans to release
    a multi-format DVD writer. The GMA-4020B drive
    will be capable of writing DVDs in the DVD-RAM,
    DVD-R and DVD-RW formats, as well as the usual
    CD-R and CD-RW standards. The only format
    Hitachi's new drive will not support will be
    Hewlett Packard and Sony's new DVD+RW format.
    With support for all these standards, Hitachi say
    that the drive will be able to record DVDs ready
    for use in conventional home DVD players and
    DVD-ROM drives. Neither a price or release date
    has been confirmed for the drive, but industry
    analysts say a good price point would be around
    the $500 mark (approximately 350 GBP).
