I remember a guy telling me that the wide-screen format was doomed because women would never part with their entertainment units.

He was a furniture salesman.

Are you sure it's not some other kind of sanitizing solution?
I need some for my brain now. Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind might help.

Peter said...

So, we almost have the wall-to-wall TVs depicted in Ray Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 (although we don't have personalized storylines in them). Yet.

As Beatty explains to Montag, people didn’t stop reading books because government forced them to stop. They stopped gradually as the culture around became focused on minor thrills and instant gratification. Hedonism and mindless entertainment became the norm, and the social niches once occupied by those who did not conform to this shrank until they disappeared.

That only makes sense if you believe

A. Only books qualify as non-mindless entertainment

B. There aren't any books that qualify as mindless entertainment.

I'd say somebody who never read a book but only watched great movies would be far better off than somebody who mostly read crap. And most readers read crap. Because most books are crap.

Also, big TVs are fantastic, especially for sports.

Does the size of the screen affect the level of detrimental influence on young children?

Meade said...

A new study of women suggests size truly does matter when it comes to choosing a screen.

Wise move to leave off earnings.
