    Meh, who cares. IB will be long retired before anyone much cares that HD4000 can draw a 4K screen (never mind actually doing something with that screen.)

    Personally, I think the manufacturers would be wise to hold off on even talking about 4K for another year or two. Otherwise they'll get a backlash - "I just bought the digital hi-def TV and now it's already outdated etc etc" Sort of like I saw with Blu-Ray - I still talk to people at work that are annoyed by Blu-Ray, having 'just' (in their minds, anyway) bought everything on DVD, now the studios think they should pay again for Blu-Ray?

    Bleeding-edgers are different, of course, and there's probably a fair number here on bit. I'm talking house-in-the-suburbs, couple-of-kids-and-a-dog, reality-tv-watching sorts, who have zero understanding of technology and paid Best Buy or whoever $100 to come plug their TV in for them.
