heard quite a bit about how shortages may prevent European
soccer football (whatever) fans from checking out the World Cup in high definition, but what about
HDTV owners in the good ol' U.S. of A? This article from the St. Louis Post-Dispatch details the problems some are
having getting hold of high definition cable boxes, and according to cable company representatives, such shortages are
common across the country.
Tis a shame that in this land of plenty, some are still being forced to go without. As you enjoy your 1080i, 720p or otherwise this Good Friday remember those who are forced to get by on 480i, the children who are being (bit)starved and the ignorant (up)converted masses. Something must be done.
