Toshiba, just about the last company standing in the HD format war from over a year ago, is finally waving the white flag. Near a year and a half after all four major movie studios signed on with Sony's Blu-Ray format, Toshiba has announced the it will be manufacturing and shipping stand alone Blu-Ray players, and Blu-Ray optical drives for PCs by the end of the year.  Better late than never I guess, although it is never easy admitting that you were wrong.
