The Power of the Flat Panel TV Brand - According to James Hibberd at Television Week, LCD flat panels now rule the day in the TV world, having captured more than 50% of TVs sold in the USA. There is now a virtual war on between plasma TV makers and flat panel brands with LG Philips and recently crowned TV champion of the world Samsung going for ever bigger LCD units. Thanks to efforts like these, it seems that brand name plasma sets are going to get cheaper for the Christmas season, with prices marked down from ā€œeven a couple of months ago.ā€

Had a good laugh over the statistical analysis of church names. But you may want to warn your readers not to cite it, however, since I'm pretty sure it is satire.

And while "Statistical Theology" is surprisingly a real subject, there is no mention anywhere on the web of a man named Larry Hines practicing it...

Amazing how close truth and fiction are these days.
