No television isn’t dead as a medium, but mine is. My trusty 1993 27″ Sony Trinitron Flat Panel CRT died last night as Mama watched Oprah and Dr. Phil off the TiVo. According to the eyewitness account, in its final moments the TV snapped, crackled, and popped for a second or two and that was it, it was dead. Today I ordered a new TV, but it won’t be here for about a week or so. These things are so heavy that they only ship ground apparently. I also got a good deal for it too, much cheaper than the price at the Sony store at the Metreon. Still, waiting a week or more with no TV sucks for me.

  2. Agreed. I’ve never played it on 16:9 and I bet you get a greater field of view advantage.
