Before you rush out and buy one of those recently released 3D TVs, there is one more lingering question — aside that is, from what exactly are you planning on doing with the 52″ flatscreen you just bought less than a year ago — that you need to consider. That question: Just how much do you really like your friends?
No, really. Before you go ahead and invite your 10 or 15 of your closest friends and relatives to “ohh” and “aww” over the fact that you’re the first in your neighborhood with the ability to watch Dreamworks’ Monsters and Aliens in 3D, not to mention that little
soccer football tournament half way around the world, you might want to take a moment and ask yourself the somewhat awkward but probably easy to answer question: Are your friends worth $150 a pop? Because that, according to a recent report on the popular gadget blog Gizmodo, is just how much it’s going to cost you to outfit each of them with a pair of 3D glasses. Glasses that rumor has it are somewhat integral to the whole 3D experience!
Just something to think about it as you decide to jump on the often perilous, always exciting journey that comes with being an early adopter.
