tech change – Flatscreens

At the Science Fantasy Bookstore in the 1980s, one recurring discussion was ‘when would we have consumer-priced flatscreen television?’

I swapped out this 35 pound CRT for a six pound flatscreen in 2007, after prices had dropped to under U$250 for 17″ displays.  One-sixth the mass, and one-sixth the length.

Display compression, lessened energy consumption, and mass reduction
