So consumer electronics spending took a dive. Sales went down all over the place, but two categories – LCD Televisions and PCs – defied the trend and outperformed expectations. Kurt Scherf, VP and principal analyst at Parks Associates says manufacturers should be praised for their success, and earn more by using what they've already got.
"Industries can develop new revenue streams by building off of these devices," said Scherf. 3-D programming is one such possibility. Content and programming for connected TVs is another.
