Panasonic might give up on Plasma TVs
Reports are circulating that TV maker Panasonic has halted the development of plasma TVs and is considering exiting the market altogether. Panasonic wouldn't be the first major TV manufacturer to exit the sagging plasma TV market, as
threw in the towel on the segment back in 2009.
The move is part of Panasonic's plan to turn around its ailing TV business. For its part, a Panasonic representative was more nebulous about the company’s intentions, stating, "We are considering a number of options regarding our TV business. But nothing has been decided yet.”
in November of 2012 that it has plans to shed 10,000 workers by the end of March 2013. And last summer, Panasonic
that it was teaming up with Sony to share costs and to collaborate on the production of next-generation OLED panels for TVs and other large displays. Many see OLED as the next big sreen technology in the TV industry.

Yup. Some people know the price of everything while knowing the value or quality of nothing.
Hell, some people don't even know what image quality
, they actually prefer enabling edge enhancement, motion smoothing, inaccurate rendering effects from hacks like local dimming, all the things you can get from LCD HDTVs.

What people like me get is that the difference in image quality isn't worth the extra cost, so f%ck it.
Especially when the TV is at home and not side-by-side with the other TVs.
The amount of enjoyment that you miss when you buy the $500 LCD instead of the $3,000 plasma? 0%

Well, this is you we're talking about. No standards and no eyeballs apparently.
