TOKYO - Microsoft and Toshiba said yesterday that they would work together to develop next-generation DVD players, heating up a race between competing technologies for DVDs. The companies aim to develop high-definition DVD players that would use software from Microsoft and hardware from Toshiba, the companies said. The agreement offers a potential leg up to Toshiba in its battle against a group led by Sony to define the format for the next generation of DVD players. Sony is championing the Blu-ray technology, with discs that have more capacity than the HD-DVD format that Toshiba is backing.

In the world of home entertainment, Sony took a big loss early on when its Betamax videotapes lost out to JVC's VHS versions, making yesterday's announcement by Blockbuster Inc. seem like slight vindication. The movie rental giant announced plans to stock 1,700 stores - including 21 in Maryland - with disks using Sony's newest technology, called Blu-ray. That's 1,450 more Blockbusters than will carry movies made in Toshiba's competing format, known as HD DVD. In vintage Beta-versus-VHS style, the two businesses have been duking it out over the title of next-generation home movie maker, with each racking up a list of big-name backers.

International Business Machines' announcement yesterday that it will join Japan's Toshiba Corp. and Germany's Siemens AG to develop advanced computer chips demonstrates how nationalist competition is giving way to international alliances fueled by financial and technical necessities.As in another international venture announced yesterday -- a $700 million deal between Fujitsu and Advanced Micro Devices -- sharing costs was a key factor in the IBM-Toshiba-Siemens deal. The three companies together will spend about $1 billion to develop advanced semiconductors and manufacturing processes.

LA ROCHELLE, France -- The boats in the Whitbread Round the World Race have watched most of the globe pass under their hulls, but the final hours into this ancient port were among the most significant.As the nine boats completed their trek from Annapolis to La Rochelle, they did so by marking several milestones. The finish offered a first-ever top trophy for hard-luck team Toshiba, a surprise third for Chessie Racing, a best-ever fourth by the all-women's boat, EF Education, and what was expected to be a big enough boost to EF Language to seal its overall victory in the nine-leg Whitbread.

TRYING TO FIX a telephone these days is frustrating. First of all, the notion of repairing a telephone seems to strike many as an outdated concept. The popular method of dealing with a dead phone is to abandon it. That is what the clerk at Circuit City suggested this week when I tried to revive a troubled Toshiba cordless phone by giving it a new battery. That is also what the two Toshiba representatives implied when I talked with them on the so-called "customer service" line. They made me mad, but they might have been right.

Toshiba skipper Dennis Conner has demonstrated again that he remains, at 55, one of the world's great sailors.
