May 27, 2008

Yes I was thinking of that song when I punched in the post title, anyway yeah… While doing a bit of catch-up this week I ran across a headline from Dealerscope that read “Weak Economy Leads to Tube TV Comeback”. I thought for a second, hey didn’t we get rid of tube televisions? Ok, no […]

Pioneer Outsourcing – Not Quitting Plasma Business Altogether

March 12, 2008

I read headlines all the time, I also read how others read headlines all the time. This whole Pioneer to exit the plasma business and no more Kuro plasmas business has really been a fascinating window into human psychology.

August 4, 2006

Sony, Matsushita (Panasonic), Sharp, Toshiba and Hitachi are devices panned out. Maybe Sony, Panasonic et al have another angle on all of this, or maybe just integrating the ability into the television versus requiring an external box is enough to persuade the general populace.

LCD vs. Plasma revisited

April 17, 2006

October 20, 2005

Ok, I guess 1920×1080 just isn’t enough for some folks; who specifically I can’t tell you as the average American household still doesn’t own a 720p capable display, but that isn’t going to stop Chi Mei Optoelectronics from doubling the current peak HD resolution of 1080p.
