HDMI Cable
How much longer before "Sony" becomes a four-letter word that I can't say on television (should I ever be on television)? The latest news from Sonyville (population: Kaz Hirai and Ken Kutaragi) is that the "premium" PlayStation 3 bundle (the one that runs for $600 ) will not include an HDMI video cable. Those buying the "cheaper" $500 bundle don't have to worry, because their model doesn't even come with an HDMI port.

Is this a huge deal? No, but in my opinion it's inconsiderate on the part of Sony. At a time when the company needs goodwill from its customers, it's the little things that are going to get them the street cred they need. Making them shell out another $20 for an HDMI cable—just to use a feature that is widely touted as a selling point of the high-end bundle—is just adding insult to injury.
