questionsany thoughts on sony's upcoming 3-d tv and blu…



HDTV sales are slowing so they need something to be the next generation technology.

But I think this is an answer to a request no one made.


@shrdlu: Not really the same question, theirs is just about 3-D in general, not Sony's two new devices.


@armagedon: Yes but the point we were trying to make in all those comments that @shrldu linked you to, is that this is technology we are neither interested in on the silver screen, the big screen, or on the computer monitor.

As a person who wears glasses and refuses to switch to contact lenses, I hate having to stick another pair of anything on my face for a marginal viewing benefit. Be it cheap plastic polarizing lenses or fancy electronic lenses with a quick changing lcd in the lens.

@hobbit: They also need something to try and save the ever slumping blu-ray sales too.

Much like the iPad, 3D technology is a solution to a problem that nobody has.


@catbertthegreat: " a solution to a problem that nobody has" is your line today, and it has made me laugh each and every time you've used it. I'm stealing it, and using it elsewhere.


@shrdlu: All the things I've said must be starting to blur together, because I've only said this once I think and I got that from all the newspaper articles I've been reading(I still sometimes read a physical newspaper on occasion) and posts on the iPad.

Thanks though, it is a very good line, feel free to use as much as you like.


@catbertthegreat: If it wasn't you, then who was it? I've been seeing that line all day (mostly to do with the ipad, but with other things as well). Ah, well. It was near perfect timing, here. It's like the move to digital tv. Most stores discovered they were in for a world of hurt when people who had cable, or satellite tv, just said, nah, I'll just stick with what I have.


@catbertthegreat: Um I don't remember posting a response here, you were apparently answering a question I thought about asking, but didn't.
