The changing face of TVs

TVs have certainly changed a bit in our life times. Remember when the telly was just an ugly and heavy black box that sat unloved in the corner of the room? Some of you may even remember when they were squarish rather than the much wider, more cinematic, 16 x 9 shape they are today. […]...More
