Plasma, LCD, or DLP rear projection?

Just returned home after a Super Bowl party at a colleague’s house. Beautiful home with finished basement and a 42″ plasma high definition TV built-in to a custom cabinet.

I’m usually the go-to guy for friends and family to turn to when deciding on what computer, digital camera, video camera, or other gadget to buy. I usually either have one or know enough to be dangerous.

Not so in this category ’cause I don’t watch enough television to either have a burning desire to buy one or to have invested the time in preparing to do so. But after tonight — especially when we watched a snippet of a Sting DVD — I realize that I want the cinema-like quality for my TiVo recorded programs, DVD’s and more.

Do I buy a Plasma, LCD, or DLP rear projection? Right after returning home, I went to CNET to start poking around and read their review of a wide variety of sets. Wow. Pretty dizzying array of choices. I’ll probably choose the best balance between quality, cost and DVI input (so I can plug in my laptop to it).

I also know that whatever I end up doing for a TV size, I’ll make sure that we provide for the possibility that bigger sizes will need to be accommodated in the future. In fact, my bride wrote on her blog in a post entitled, “Goodbye Armoire,” where she forecasted that flat panel TV’s would make entertainment centers obsolete.

Connecting the Dots Podcast

Podcasting hit the mainstream in July of 2005 when Apple added podcast show support within iTunes. I'd seen this coming so started podcasting in May of 2005 and kept going until August of 2007. Unfortunately was never 'discovered' by national broadcasters, but made a delightfully large number of connections with people all over the world because of these shows. Click here to view the archive of my podcast posts.
