|He's coming to get you!|
I watched some of the 'Bama game last night (as much as I could stand, given that the hated Tide was lacking an NFL opponent) and seeing those big running backs coming right at my face was enough to ensure that I'd have more 3D offerings on my TV in the future.
You might remember that this 47-inch television set replaced a stolen 42-incher a couple of months ago and that it cost half as much as the smaller TV (which was two years old) and has a lot more features.
I'm still not convinced that a 3D movie in a theater--at $14 or more--is something I ought to be watching. The difference between 2D, which I'm accustomed to and have no problem with, and 3D is slight and sometimes even dramatic for a second or two. Mostly, though, I tend to forget how many dimensions I'm watching if the story is good. If the story isn't good, 3D is a gimmick that doesn't improve anything and its WOW! factor is slight and fleeting.
OK, so I'm an old codger. Sometimes, though, technology isn't the only answer. Sometimes a good story is far better than a virtual runningback smashing my peace and quiet. Especially a 'Bama runningback.
