FLAT'S WHERE IT'S AT ...

I'm here in Atlanta for some meetings at the CEDIA Expo, the ultimate trade show for home entertainment gadgets and gizmos. I don't get to Atlanta very often, but I'm staying at the CNN Center complex which brings back fond memories. It's right next door to the Philips Arena. About ten years ago, I was involved in the announcement of this Arena, together with some folks from Turner Broadcasting. As part of the overall hoopla, we presented Ted Turner with one of the world's first flat screen televisions. Turner, sometimes known as "the mouth of the south," took one look at it, turned to all the reporters and cameramen in the room and said, "Man, this sucker sure is Flat!" Now, TVs are getting flatter than ever ... but the picture is in full 3-D.

Oooo, I want a 3D TV! I think I remember you talking about that technology when we met in Vegas. How cool that they're beginning to market them! (Or are they not quite ready for marketing to the public yet?)
