Pretty interesting article. I didn't know that Zenith (or LG) even produced anything these days.

Yeah, those iMacs -- 5,000 sold a day and only finding a market in one small segment of the population.

I'd like to see some of these products enter the general market. I love translucent electronics. Mostly because I love taking things apart, but I'm too afraid to do it with most things that cost more than a couple hundred dollars. If I can see through the casing instead, it usually satisfies me. =)
