An ex-colleague of mine now works for a major manufacturer and was present at a recent manufacturers conference. He was stunned that the feature of flat screens (LCD/Plasma) that is most exciting the manufacturing big wigs is....... wait for it.... no not HD or quality or anything like that... No the best thing since sliced bread according to the manufacturers is.. The huge reduction in shipping costs!!!!!!!!!!!! Yes folks you can stuff more of them in a plane/truck. There were reps from a couple of the large retailers present and they were going into raptures about how much more room they have in their warehouses and stockrooms. Seriously though quite a lot of R&D is going in to making the kit lighter, and this will undoubtedly lead to sets being produced in one mega factory somewhere with the cheapest labour costs and shipped all over the globe. Give it a few years and we'll be seeing posts like "My 75" Pana has folded in half, what can I do about it?"
