Post Consumer Adoption of 3D and Internet-enabled TVs Still Slow

To anyone 'in the know' this isn't really news, but I'm glad to see the industry waking up and realizing that 3D TV isn't some magical overnight wallet-filling transition.
Reuters reports that Best Buy CEO Brian Dunn told analysts that sales of 3D TVs has fallen behind expectations. Dunn said, 'There was confusion about 3D early (on). It was a little short on content.' A little short is an understatement, and one of the films that could have helped drive 3D TV adoption ' Avatar ' is locked up as an exclusive for Panasonic until 2012.

That Panasonic deal still blows me away.

In addition, things coming to market that seem like great idea (GoogleTV) are currently being quashed by the greed of the industry.
Google's Google TV offerings are also not doing as well as expected on the market. The main reason for this is the fact that most of the major video streaming services and networks blocked Google TV devices from accessing and streaming content from sites like Hulu, Fox, and others effectively killing the benefits of paying more for Google TV.

3D is just a stupid idea IMO. Go away 3D, nobody likes you.

Of course it's slow... we're tired of buying the same bits of technology over and over... when companies design a true glass-less 3D display with all the bells and whistles? sure...

Otherwise... and like six_storm says... go away, 3D, nobody likes you (in your current state)

Someone that people need to also realize is that Avatar is not a great film. It was the first big budget hollywood film that really used 3D to it's full potential, so there was a ton of hype about it. NOT a great film.

I have a 3D TV and hardly ever use the 3D feature at all. Very little content, especially when talking about free stuff. Thankfully it's still an excellent 2D tube as well.

Regarding 3d on the pc, I'm loving it. Hopefully content will start to be released soon for the couch potatoes....

Agreed. The 3D was cool the movie was kinda blah.

I recently bought a new LCD TV and thought about 3D capabilities for maybe 30 seconds then came to the conclusion it wasn't worth it . I don't want to watch tv with 3D glasses on and especially don't want to pay the ridiculous price for them.
Waste of time until they can figure out a way to watch 3D without glasses needed.

Slow sales wouldn't have anything to do with a crap economy and an almost 10% unemployment rate would it?
