We're in the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. And yet, sales of television sets are up 17.3 percent over last year, according to the research firm ISuppli Corp.. What gives? Surely, a TV is not a necessity. Yet with the end of analogue TV many Americans are forgoing $40 converter boxes and instead finding the cash to buy a $1,000 high def flat panel (and filling up the landfills with old-school TVs in the process). Or maybe it's just that with vacations too expensive to consider, nice home entertainment is the only alternative?

TBD - on disposal of all those old TVs
