Westinghouse has just sent out a press release announcing the launch of a new line of “affordable” HDTVs. These new LED models run from 24” and 55” in size. Each is only around 1” thick at the edges, and all of them come with a glossy black frame with red accents. All models meet the (virtually meaningless) Energy Star compliance and, in fact, exceed current specifications.
The king of the crop is the 55” LD-55F970Z. This TV packs full 1080pdisplay, 6ms response time, and a 120 Hz refresh rate into one hot package. It has selectable color temperatures, 3D noise reduction, and an Inverse 3:2 pulldown feature for optimized playback. On top of it all, there are 3 HDMI ports. The 46” LD-46F970Z is very similar.
Westinghouse brags that their new HDTVs actually use less energy than a standard incandescent bulb. The 24” model uses 15% less energy than a 40 watt bulb, while the 26” models use less energy than a 45-watt bulb. Welcome to the glorious, power-efficient future.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
