Sony plasma TV

Yes, it's pretty much been assumed for a couple of years now that sooner or later LCD would get good enough, cheap enough, and big enough to dethrone plasma as the king of flat panels (that is, until LCD is itself overtaken by OLED), but we didn't exactly think that Sony, the largest TV manufacturer in the world, would decide that beginning next year they were going to stop making plasma televisions to focus entirely on LCD TVs. We'll try not to get all sentimental about it, but obviously somebody at Sony ran the numbers and realized that making plasma TVs just wasn't worth it anymore.
