7" x 50" x $1,000

I am not usually one to get all snarked up about new home entertainment technology. But this New York Times article by John Markoff about a new digital TV chip from Intel is pretty crazy:

[Some analyst] predicted that the low-cost display technology, which can be incorporated into the traditional rear-projection television sets, could lead to lightweight 50-inch screens only 7 inches thick for about $1,000, perhaps as early as the 2004 holiday season.

Sure, they wouldn’t be “plasma” screens. Which is too bad, because “plasma” anything is ultra-cool. (This is, by the way, a “plasma” blog.) But still, those are some niiice dimensions.
