Just saw this on The Verge. Thought people might be interested.

This was "news" last year? I dont remember, but this seems to surffacing again, also see:
http://www.avsforum.com/t/1463849/japans-panasonic-corp-is-leaning-towards-withdrawing-from-plasma-television

Nothing really "new" here however, and until they state they are moving out of Plasma, bothing really of note....

There's already 2 or 3 threads about this posted in the last 12 hours. And even more of them posted in the last year. Do we really need even more?

This is old news, and Panasonic has basically said they're considering phasing out Plasmas sometime in the next few years, but that nothing has been decided yet. I think it's safe to say most of us do think that Panasonic will stop making Plasmas once they start making OLEDs.

I suspect they've carried Art out in a stretcher.

Reporting this umpteenth duplicated content-free thread.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
