Wristjobs, whopping big 4Kers and fondleslabs: Currys' Xmas tech

"...if the £1,000 price tag the Currys chap quoted is to be believed..."

Oh, I believe. Currys call it 'enhancing the customer experience': aged relatives went in at the weekend to replace antique CRT, and came within a whisker of being flogged a 55" curved 3D 4K SMART thing, plus soundbar, extended warranty, installation/recycling and several 'premium' (i.e £49.99 each) HDMIs. About £2.5K for the whole package; probably quite a nice bundle of kit, except all they want to do is watch SD broadcasts over a SCART FreeSat box in a non-internet connected caravan...
