    store in San Antonio, Toshiba America Consumer Products, L.L.C. will
    demonstrate the next generation of DVD products - HD DVD, also known
    as high definition DVD. Toshiba's HD DVD player will be displayed and
    demonstrated for the first time to consumers anywhere at a retail
    location in the United States. Demonstrations will take place at 11:00

    consumers the tremendous potential of HD DVD and to see their

    using Texas Instruments Digital Light Processing(TM) technology, and

    retail," said Jodi Sally, Vice President of Marketing, Toshiba America
    Consumer Products Digital A/V Group. "With the increased sales of
    high-definition televisions, consumers increasingly want HD content in
    a packaged format for their displays and HD DVD naturally fits in with
    this trend."

    "Arguing with anonymous strangers on the Internet is a sucker's game
    because they almost always turn out to be -- or to be indistinguishable from
    -- self-righteous sixteen-year-olds possessing infinite amounts of free time."
