    I just came back from a forced trip to NYC (not my favorite place) and I had some time to kill. I ended up stepping into a small mall just for the AC and saw a Samsung store. I went in, and I saw the Holy Grail. World Cup on 3D TV. Funny glasses and all. It was AMAZING – and I’m not even a big soccer fan. Just like when I first got HD, I’d watch shit I didn’t like just for the HD. Same thing! I then went to Comcrap’s website and I think that ESPN3D is available in my area. So the money wheels are turning….

    The downside is the glasses. Not just that you have to have them, but that they are expensive. You can’t invite 20 people over to watch the Cup, Nascar or whatever else they broadcast without dropping major coin on glasses.

    Imagine if we can just upgrade TV’s firmware or Blu Ray player that will allow you to play 3D. Now that’s the right direction that manufacturers are taking. Existing technology to work with upcoming ones.

    I am not ready to buy an 3D system yet. But when I shop for a Blu-Ray player, I will likely look to see if its 3D or can be upgraded to handle it.

    I agree with Boyd that its dumb that the TVs require glasses and not only that, they are expensive too. Good thing about these TVs, they are driving down the prices of LCD and LEDTVs. Win for me.

    1.) It’s an AUDIO podcast; there is nothing to ‘watch’; you just listen.

    2.) You need Flash installed for the audio player to work.

    3.) If you are on an iPad or any other “iDevice,” you can listen to our podcasts on iTunes (search for “abc cubed”) or via our RSS feed here: http://www.abccubed.com/feed/
