I have yet to see a 1" thick piece of paper.
Up close with Samsung's size-zero 52in LCD TV prototype... Can't see the video?

Yes the "article" looks pretty poor when there is a red rectangle of no-script where there is supposedly a video.
And no, i'm sure not going to install flash and disable no-script to watch CES news, stuff that is much better transported by text+pic. If i wanted video, i'd go to youtube or something.
Give it a rest people -
Video is, believe it or not, a good thing on occasion, plus you get to see a hot young yank booth babe poorly represent their product, its great!
Dont get me wrong though, written articles are good too, but having the occasional video review is a good 'diversion' from the norm.
I suspect these ppl are only jealous cos their IT departments dont allow video streaming on work PCs!
@The reg - we want more of these! If only to really annoy the anti-video people! ;-)
... er, it's basically all in the title of the article. The girl on the stand says it's a 50" LCD TV that's 1" thick and that all the standard connectors are at the back ... the video picture is from a cameraphone as far as I can tell, and at an angle to the screen at a distance, (and remember how good LCD screen images look from side angles, i.e. not very) and is quite low res and noisy.
So you're not missing anything from not seeing the video, there just aren't any specs in the video either.
.....But what about the dirty great lumps of metalwork behind, which stop idiots bending the screen.
Oh, and the use of video is probably OK for those who are in desperate need of dumbed down content, but fo rthe rest of us, it sucks. It's probably the same argument as books being forsaken for computer/video.
.................and I'm off to WH Smiths.
Excellent post there Fluffykins. I never realised that video was for people who are a bit thick. I'll have to remark on that to a mate of mine who relies on videocasts. He's dyslexic by the way.
Next time, before you get all snooty and up your own arse about audio/visual media, try to remember that for some it's their lifeline.
