Sony Bets The Farm On 3D TV

I came in late to a live vidcast from CES of Sony announcing something called the Dash. I missed that completely and am disinclined to look it up so close to my sleep time.

I did, however, see Howard Stringer pimp and pimp and pimp for 3D TV. Discovery Channel 3D HD. ESPN 3D HD. PlayStation 3D. Blu-Ray 3D.

Did anyone out there ever ask for 3D? Anyone?

Ray Bradbury hates television being such a “distraction.” But he apparently owns a large flatscreen HDTV. That’s something I’ll never own.

And I will also never own a 3D HDTV, either.

I don’t care that no one would ever see me watching it …

… I still don’t want to risk looking like a dick while doing so.

At least Sir Howard had the sense not to imagine a 3D Sony Reader.

    If I am going to look this stupid while watching television, I don’t want it. In the darkness of a movie theatre, ok, but it’s still dumb. You can spend millions of dollars but we still have to wear these ridonkulous glasses? No thanks, Sony.
