marcus 2013

Supersize my letterbox

With 40" TVs around the £400 mark now, and even 50" going for around £750, I suppose that this is inevitable. New form factor, bit of marketing to say how crap all the old ones are, and you're selling like hot cakes...

I'd imagine that someone somewhere has house room for this thing - it certainly isn't me...

What worries me is that if the aspect ratio catches on, sooner or later most computer monitors will be made that shape, and it's going to be a bastard finding anything that has a decent height and resolution that isn't too wide to fit onto my desk.
