Philips Candeo

Evan Blass at Engadget shows off his detective skills:

Anyway, we assume that these 40-square foot models are mostly meant for commercial use, and not for pushing incredibly downscaled 1080p through your home theater (even though they do contain digital inputs). Another clue about the target audience for these behemouths is the pricetag, which hovers around $100,000 no matter which pixel pitch you prefer.
Or, he could have saved himself the effort and clicked on his own link, which offers no clues whatsoever that the displays might be for some kind specialized business use.

He also fails to mention that there is a third 576 x 324 pixel model available; that the things are 2-3 times brighter than plasma and 5-8 times brighter than LCD; and thet they weigh a quarter of a ton.

Talk about missing the subtlety of the humor in a post! Guess you must not have anything else to whine about, huh? How about sticking to actual mistakes?

Oh, should have figured that you'd start moderating comments. Wouldn't want anyone to show you up, would you?
