No Definition For Half Of HDTV Owners
from the i-have-a-bridge-to-sell-you dept
With HDTVs in 16 million homes by the end of the year, one would hope that the people putting these new sets into their homes have an understanding of the reason why they've just paid a premium over a normal television. Well, apparently confusion still abounds. HD programming still has a long way to go, so while it's not that surprising that 49% of HDTV owners don't utilize their HD functions, what is surprising (and a little scary) is that a quarter thought they were watching HDTV all along. Consumers clearly need to be educated more. If people are so easily duped, why are engineers working so hard to solve the world's problems? Just slap on a sticker that says what you want your product to do, head home and crack open that beer.
