1. Philips touts PC DVD-rewritable design

Philips Electronics has developed a reference design for DVD-
rewritable drives in PCs in a push to promote the DVD+RW format.
The consumer electronics giant's semiconductor division on
Monday debuted the main guts of a DVD+RW drive, including an
integrated chipset, optical pickup unit, firmware and reference
design, that can record speeds up to 8X. The company will
license and sell components for the drive and expects
manufacturers to have them available in the first half of next
year.

4. Merger could spawn more copyproof CDs

Two leading copy-protection technology companies announced
Tuesday they are merging, in a deal that could help speed the
move of controversial copyproof music CDs to market.
Macrovision, a Santa Clara, Calif.-based company, said it will
acquire Israeli company Midbar Tech, with the intention of
joining the rival anti-copying technologies from the two
companies. Both companies' products have met resistance from
consumers and record labels, and together they hope to overcome
market skepticism, they say.
