Because TV somehow seems
less crappy if it's tremendous


Yes, we know it costs more than a Honda Civic.
But look at the size of those tulips!


This week's Invention of the Week award goes to the dedicated researchers at Samsung, who have worked tirelessly to come up with the 82-inch LCD TV. Finally, the people who've been forced to try to get by with 62- and 72-inch TVs will see some relief.

We're sure there were many times when the Samsung scientists thought about giving up. "It will never work! It's just ... too ... big!," they would cry, in Japanese. But fortunately, the thought of some poor child in Chappaqua, N.Y. crying himself to sleep every night because SpongeBob wasn't the size of a refrigerator gave them the will to carry on.

No pricing has been announced for the new TV, but we can presume it will be approximately one meeeeeeeellion dollars.

You know, Sony will come out with a 92-inch screen the week after. Then JVC will come out with a 93-inch. The cycle of abuse won't stop until we have to start making larger houses just to find a place to put the TV.

When will the madness end!?!

Do they ever think of the poor bastards (like me) who have to install the damned things?

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, JUST BUY A FREAKIN' MOVIE THEATER!

Just curious -- wouldn't the people at Samsung be speaking Korean, not Japanese?

Q said...

82-inch... I wonder what the size of a TV screen will look like in 10 years... No, it may break 100-inch record within 3 years or so.

Technology is scary.

By the way, isn't Samsung Korean?

Just try to imagine the horror of watching cartoons on that TV. "Omygod, Dora the Explorer! And she's bigger than me!"
