  10. a 65" television?

    they say that the bigger the television screen, the further away you should sit for less eyestrain etc.

    so for this...you'd have to sit in your neighbours' garden?

    New design eh? How much different can a TV look? I mean...I haven't EVER been surprised or blown away by the way a tv looks...ah well just show us when you can.

    i agree with ya. nothing groundbreaking.

    its not so much about it being such a OOOOOOH SECRET. but, as with any new product, leaking info about it before its officially released is a pretty serious offense.

    i could get fired.

    very common product design/introduction scenario.

  14. maybe it looks liek a bass :D and the body of it is the screen and the fingerboard has all the buttons on it and you use the tuners as switches for something ;) that wouldnt actually be a bad idea...LoL, and the pups can be the little reciever thingies from the remote :D ~ Tyler

    I see Fred..well that's cool. And that is quite a freebie!
     
  16. Very nice! I would be happy with any television bigger than my 27 incher, but 65 inches of televisison is a lot! I think I would be forced to watch even more t.v. than normal!

    Obviously someone is trying to compensate for having a small DVD player.

    :rolleyes:
     
  18. Yeah, since no one else really seems to be saying anything about my idea of what the tv could look like i think ill back my own idea up in saying its a good idea and should be made, someone make it :D ~ Tyler
