Fidel Castro retires

In Reuters

“To my dear compatriots, who gave me the immense honor in recent days of electing me a member of parliament … I communicate to you that I will not aspire to or accept — I repeat not aspire to or accept — the positions of president of the Council of State and commander-in-chief,” Castro said in a statement published in the Communist Party’s Granma newspaper.

Will Cuba really change? Just have to wait and hope for the best.

The Blu-ray win means consumers no longer have to choose between rival incompatible formats and run the risk of being stuck with a 21st century equivalent of Betamax, Sony’s videotape format that lost out to VHS in the 1980s.

  1. Some of those I’ll miss more than others; they all proved to be entertaining, but Castro leaving is definitely a plus. It’s just too bad that he took Toshiba down with him…
    😉

  2. Thanks Ethan
    I just recently, well Christmas, splashed out on HD ready monitor. Yikes!

  3. It was a wonderful and exciting day. I was glued to the TV all day. We’re all hoping the US stops backing Musharraf so we can get rid of him, but Bush seems to love him too much…
