The summer months are proving good for Japan's electronics vendors.

The Olympic Games in Athens are pushing many people to finally buy that plasma or LCD television that they've been dreaming about. Also, the time difference between Japan and Greece is helping sales of video recorders, particularly those that use hard drives or DVDs.

Even the weather is helping promote technology sales: A brilliant start to the summer with central Tokyo temperatures hitting a record high of 103 degrees, followed by more than a month of 80-degree days, has helped Fujitsu and Hitachi sell air conditioners.

The gadget front has been quiet, as is typical for summer, but the season hasn't been without some interesting introductions. At the top of the list is Hitachi's latest hard-drive video recorder. It supports HDTV, which is exactly the market that Blu-ray Disc and HD-DVD are pursuing, but as a hard-drive player it can offer basic recording functions at a lower price. You can't back up the recorded shows onto disc, because DVD doesn't support HDTV--but hard-disk support for high-definition content may actually slow the demand for next-generation optical disc recorders.

Come onnnnnnnnnn...

Dont let us all down here...take a loan and buy two sets...You will notice the difference compared to the 21" TV You use now...

And also...if you put those two sets together...and sit some 2m away...with live coverage from Your Olympics...You would feel like You sit right there on the scene...with one difference...that You wont be burned to the ground because of high temperatures outside...but will sit in nice cold room...with air condition...drinking some cold beer...and with crowd of sexy young girls around who would came by to see emperors new Plasma Tv sets...

What do You think?
