Ashampoo sells a variety of Windows applications, but is probably best known for its multimedia products. To celebrate the CEO's 49th birthday (is that a particular milestone? Nobody told me), they're flogging off nearly all their applications for $US10 each. Or cheaper, if you don't want a physical disc for Movie Shrink & Burn 3. The basic deal is $US10 for any of Ashampoo's offerings for the next couple of days (excluding CAD Software and Core Tuner 2), but at OzBargain they've noted that if you opt to buy Movie Shrink & Burn 2, it'll offer you a free upgrade to version 3. If you can live without premium support and a physical disc, this drops to a very tasty $3. [Ashampoo via OzBargain]

But during a closed-door briefing at CES last week, Sony attempted to make a case for why 8K should be the future of televisions, and it made some sense.
