TigerDirect Retail Store now open in Chicago!

DSCI0017 Yep, you heard it right folks,  there is an all new TigerDirect.com Retail and Outlet Store located at 2500 North Elston Avenue in Chicago, Illinois.  Right downtown for your convenience.  Best news, this store is unlike any other before:  there will be a huge array of liquidation and clearance items at this store all the time plus all of the great products you have come to count on TigerDirect for – at the same prices you will find online at TigerDirect.com.

The store is currently in ‘soft open’ mode and will be having a grand opening celebration shortly, once the store is 100% together and ready for prime time.  We are still stocking some shelves and getting used to things, but we didn’t want to make you wait – and simply opened the doors while we get settled in.  Plus, the store is fully outfitted with ‘Retail 2.0’ a all-new concept in retailing that brings the convenience of the Internet right to you inside the retail store.

New 100GB BluRay Disc announced

BDXL_SHARP The Blu-Ray Disc Association released new specifications back in April for storage of up to 128GB of write-once capability for Blu-Ray discs and 100GB in RW format.  Now it seems that the media is actually coming out – thanks to Sharp. 

Touted to be able to handle up to 12 hours of SDTV or 9 hours of HDTV, the price may be an issue which are being estimated somewhere around $60 at the time of launch.  A stand alone player is forthcoming, later this month in Japan and who only knows when in the US.

Personally, I’m not sure how long physical media will stick around – especially when the lifespan of non-climate controlled archives may not be the ‘hundreds of years’ we expect.  Till then, I’ll keep buying hard drives.
