    60" LG Infinia 1080p Broadband THX Certified Plasma TV compared to 60" Sharp LC60LE820 Quattron

    When you say or hear, "I need you"

    We all know "I love you." Of course, we all understand love differently, but what I am interested in particularly, is what does "I need you" mean differently from "I love you." Is it the same, only said differently? Is a deep need akin to love but somehow fundamentally different? I know...

    Superbit to go into Moratorium

    Don't have all the details, however, Sony is going to place all Superbit titles into Moratorium. I can only suspect it has to do with BD, however, who knows what Sony thinks. Certainly, my Superbit of Fifth Element is as good as or better than the BD version. Just find the timing...

    I have the Sony 60" Grand Wega with one HDMI input and is capable of 1080i display. Not being ready to invest in a new display, but about to have at least 2 or 3 video units with HDMI out (PS3, HD-A1, etc.), can anyone recommend a good 3 or 4 to 1 HDMI switcher? Thanks
