Slashdot linked up this Toronto Star article detailing a rather startling market effect... the potential extinction of plasma screen TVs. I've always thought LCDs had a significant advantage over plasma screens, if only they could bring the costs under control. A few years ago we linked up announcements of the development of techniques that promised to do exactly that, and it would seem we are now seeing the results. There's definitely a large screen in our future, if only our infuriatingly reliable 27" conventional TV would have the decency to die. But, the longer we wait, the better the technology will be, so there really is no hurry.
