I think this is more propaganda meant to confuse the masses about high definition, and cause fear about its effects. You can stop watching HD anytime you want, and everyone knows that real life has better pixel density than even 1080p and very few compression artifacts, it's no contest. Even this fall when football will be on practically every day and we can anticipate all the new network shows will be high definition, there will be uh...plenty of reasons to go outside.
Now if you'll excuse me, I have to unplug my phone so no one interrupts me about skipping Father's Day brunch to catch Brazil vs. Australia World Cup action in 720p.
[Happy Father's Day Dad!]
