Radio Overload: AM FM XM Sirius HD – Will it End?

Wow. So many options, no program guides!

Panasonic Plans 42-Inch, 1080p Plasma Television

Panasonic maker Matsushita Electric Industrial Co. Ltd. said on Tuesday it planned to launch the world’s first 42-inch plasma TVs with full high definition panels on April 27 in Japan. Matsushita hopes to challenge liquid crystal display TV makers by providing a better lineup of full high definition models, which can produce images with a resolution of 1,920 by 1,080 pixels.

Because a 2500:1 contrast ratio displays colors and details you’ve never noticed before. Because a built in ATSC tuner plays over-the-air digital broadcast signals and unscrambled digital cable.
