    I am the only one in my family that does not have either an Apple TV or big Plasma or LCD TV. I am still getting by with my 2005 model 34 inch Sony XBR tube HD set, but that little Apple TV box is slick!! My only problem is that I am 90% convinced that Apple is working on an "all in one" version of that device with the cable companies that you may be able to rent as part of your cable service that will include not only the Apple TV functionality, but also your cable box, recording capability and wireless router at a minimum, so I am waiting a bit longer.

    Hah! I bought my wife a Sony Google TV last year for Christmas. It is our first and only flat screen TV. The main TV in the living room is still my 27" Zenith TV which I bought in 1998. I think I paid more for it than the big flat screen TV.

    LOL. I managed to wait until the highest end Sony 34 inch tube HD TV came down from its original p[rice of $8000 to something in the low to mid $1000 range, so I know how ya feel about what you can get today. With that said, the really top of the line TV's are still not cheap. It's just that the cheap stuff is so much better than it was even 5 yeas ago or less.

    I can't wait for the tv consuls to come back in fashion, I am talking about the big wood ones that sat on the floor.



    Other than that I love how much stuff tv's are being able to do now.

    What games are you playing? I'm horribly addicted to Skyrim myself. Luckily I have gainful employment or I'd never leave the house...

    My parents bought one of the early 25 inch RCA TV with the wicker looking cabinet and the fancy new digital keypad instead of the knobs in like 1979. I had that as my primary TV in my house until i bought a new 32 inch Sony......in 1996!!!

    Im 28. This was the first TV Ive ever bought. $500 with wallmount included off of craigslist. Guy was trying to sell it for $600. Ive only watched 4 movies on it, played some old skool Sonic racing game, and surfed the net. Im not really a gamer, brainsausage, I love a good game of chess or Settlers of Catan though. I think I dropped too much dose back in the day to be able to keep up with all of the action in video games. I prefer to hang out a bit and enjoy the view. Lucky for me, I live two houses away from a Redbox which rents BlueRays and PS3 games, so Im sure Ill try out a few here and there. Shoot-em-up games are the worst, its fun to watch others play them, but I always end up looking at the ceiling with the rifle, spinning circles until somebody shoots me.
