Should we really care? Let's just say in the worst case scenario that every HDTV sold in the past will be obsolete in the next 8 months, do you regret taking the hook so quickly? If I bought a HDTV I would be thinking about the money I put out (Thats just me). In all honesty who would have thought that the HDTV's that many may have purchased would be in danger of being worthless in the very near future? Umm, am I the only person here that thought HDTV was a somewhat (NEW) technology, (am I) ? OK let's face it, some jumped on the HDTV bandwagon and most did not. Now we have the issue of widescreen (16:9) or (4:3). The way I see it, the 4:3 people are in the best position today. The odds are if you decided to stay 4:3 for now, you may have said (NO) to the HDTV movement. I for one did not take the HDTV, or widescreen bait yet, and I am very glad that I did not. I still have a bad trust issue with the tech movement. And if the likes of (M/S), and (Mr Gates) have not shown us the underlined issues of the movement clearly enough, then who is to blame? Can we blame ourself perhaps? And if we lack the fortitude to do that, should we drag as many down with us as we can and then all cry foul later? Just my thoughts, and my opininion! Roy.
