Christmas wishlist, 2004

Christmas wishlist, 2004: The NY Times reported today that Intel is expected to announce in early January a new chip that will drastically lower the cost of HDTV, for example a 50″ plasma, 7″ thick for $1,000 by a year from now. Yesterday, the WSJ reported on a Chinese company making low-cost plasma TVs for their domestic market that is being approached by Dell and H-P for a U.S. market product. Admit it. It’s a great time to be alive.

  1. They neglect to mention the expense of the accessories: I will have to buy a new house to accommodate a 50″ TV. In my neighborhood, I estimate that a house with a room big enough for a 50″ TV would run between $250,000-$300,000, if it is even available in my neighborhood. They weren’t thinking plasma in the 1920s.

  2. At the least you would drop a nice bundle on a home theatre room addition, complete with Bluetooth.

    I all but guarantee you that if you mention buying a new house, a new neighborhood would be in your future. And there’s decorating, and landscaping and of course, one must always accessorize…

  3. What!!! New neighborhood!!! Blasphemy!!!
    Now, I think it’s going to be a while before you see a lot of plasma TVs in East Nashville…we’re more about the high-speed Internet connection than the home theater…
    New neighborhood. Well I never.
