    I have never been a watch guy but for some reason I am really interested in the supposed smart watch by Apple.

    SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY, APPLE

    Cable, at least the one I have experience with, has no problem delivering 1080i. At all.

    Doesn't matter, in ten years there will be no such thing as "the cable company" as we currently know it.

    It's all going internet.

    If you get a good one, the picture is great, but remember that you can't be in a well lit room.

    That's the big drawback with projectors.

    Pretty much the same thing, just a different service.

    Fiber optic stringer. Doesn't have the same ring to it.

    Its a compressed 1080i.

    Same with Directv...look at their "BluRay/1080P" movies, then compare it to a real BluRay DVD...no comparison. The 1080P is so damn compressed that is loses some of it definition.

    The best bang for the buck are DLP based projectors. You can get a really nice one for 750-900 bucks. Its very light dependent though as Ace said. Control the light, and its a helluva set up for the money.

    The high end projectors are LCOS 3 panel systems that rival a plasma TV with their black reproduction. They start at around 2800.00.
