Throw away your TV set - it's no use any more....
Happy with your pin-sharp 1080p 3D HD telly are you? Grow up, it’s already out of date. A new format is coming, 8K, which will offer a resolution of 7,680 by 4,320 pixels – about the same as a 32 megapixel photo and 16 times as sharp as current top notch HD broadcasts.
Smart eh? It’s believed that the first commercially-available sets for under $10,000 will be in the shops in about 2025, so start saving up now.
As anonymous people who comment on websites are a perfect gauge of widespread public opinion, we’ll give the last word to someone named ‘aoxomoxoa’ who says on the BBC’s news site: “Surely there is more to life than television? Personally, I have not been in possession of such a sad instrument of torture and unhappiness since the 1990's and I do not intend to be imposed upon by said instrument of sadness ever again. When will people start to learn? Life is here and now, not on your fancy flat screen on the wall.”
It’s hard to argue with that, it really is.
