- Flat TVs Take Off


An article just up over at PC World gives us an outlook on how things are shaping in the TV market, particularly in reference to LCD / Flat Panel displays which are inevitably a way of our future. Prices are already starting to plummet so things are looking good.

In previous years, business-only uses dominated the discussions of flat-panel technologies, in monitors, notebooks, handhelds, and digital signs.
