Default Re: Pioneer Looks Toward LCD as Kuro Project Leads to Losses

Usually, in the electronics world, companies spend a lot of R&D on a new product that is superior to existing technology. When this technology first hits the market, it is more often than not, a relatively expensive product.

As time goes by, and the product gets momentum, the price usually drops. A new, better technology comes out and the minus 1 technology becomes mainstream and more affordable.

Todays technology is the top of a very large pyramid of incremental (some larger than others) improvements.

What is going to happen if these new technologies are choked off by this kind of preasure?
