The article was a bit biased and inaccurate. It states the 1/2 life of plasmas as 10,000 hours. Untrue. In general the 1/2 life is more like 20,000-30,000 depending upon manufacturer and user settings. The article also points out that "plasma technology has its drawbacks". True, but so do LCDs, although you'd never know it from reading this article. Their blacks are still subpar and motion handling is still not up to the level of plasmas.
Yes, LCDs are improving, and are probably the display of choice for STATIC images such as signs (as the article does suggest). I tend to watch video images with motion.

That was much more of a press release than an article in my mind.

Every few weeks we get an 50" OLED killing plasmas next week or Next generation of LCDs will kill Plasma. So far, I remain skeptical.
