If you have recently purchased a brand new TV set (a Christmas present for the family, perhaps), you’ll be pretty pissed off to hear this one. Commercially available 3D TV Sets will be available for sale to end consumers this year. It is expected that new 3D TV Sets will be only about $300 more expensive than same size flat screen TV Sets without 3D capability. You’ve heard it right – a 3D TV experience right in your living room. This is gonna change the way you watch porn forever.
DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg said that his studio will release each of their new movies in 3D versions, because 2010 will be the year of 3D TVs. Sony, Discovery and Imax are joining forces to create the first fully 3D TV channel that could go live as early as towards the end of this year. HDNet owner Mark Cuban also said that his channel will start broadcasting most of its prime time and weekend shows in 3D soon. Disney owned sports network ESPN is planning to start with 3D broadcast on June 11, 2009 with the World Cup soccer.
The question now remains – which company has produced 3D TV Sets? People behind International CES – the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow said they expect Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, Mitsubishi and Vizio to unveil their 3D TV models at this week’s show (takes place between January 7 and 10, 2010 in Las Vegas). Consumer trends analysts anticipate 3D TV Sets to become an instant hit. As many as 45% of household in North America may feature a 3D TV Set by 2014 – the analysts anticipate.
This is a $9 Billion Dollars check that was issued by Mitsubishi UFJ and payable to Morgan Stanley. Mitsubishi UFJ issued the $9 Billion Dollars check in fall of 2008 and sent it to Morgan Stanley to save them from complete financial collapse. The original intentions were to wire the money electronically but since Morgan Stanley was in a lot of poop and could pop any minute, the electronic transfer may not have reached them fast enough, so Mitsubishi UFJ made an exception and issued an actual hard copy check for 9 Billion Dollars. It is likely the largest check ever written.
I’ve stumbled across this interesting picture by Imran Jafri that basically makes you ask the simplest of questions: “Why is sex so complicated?” Or better yet: “Why is sex made to be so complicated?” What’s so complicated about sex anyway?
The picture particularly targets the Wikipedia page about sex. I must admit I have never made it to that page, even though I’ve been on so many Wiki pages before. To no surprise – yes, the Wikipedia description of sex is immense. If a teenage child stumbled upon it to get information about sex, I can imagine them taking off before they can acquire any form of knowledge.
On the other hand, there is so much sex everywhere, we even get to check off SEX boxes on application forms. When I was first introduced to sex, there was no Wikipedia around. Sex itself didn’t seem complicated, getting some was a challenge. That’s what happens when you’re not a popular guy.
To make things even worse, I’ve also stumbled upon this Mitsubishi commercial which only confirms the Wikipedia take on it – yes, sex is complicated. Duh!
