re: HDTV obsolete before it's available.
Seems plausible. My computer monitor has higher resolution than
HDTV in 5-8 years. Many stations are questioning the financial
outlay. Most people are now content with 200-line VHS movies at
home and are unlikely to shell out $800 for an HDTV. Nicholas(?)
Negroponte at MIT keeps claiming that the problem with TV is not
HDTV, it's *content*! I couldn't agree more.
