LCD has elbowed into plasma's home theater perch in the last couple of years. But this "blackest of blacks" display (available in 50" and 60") still trumps even the best LCD screens. If you're the type that can spot a errant pixel a football field away, however, then upgrade to the Pro Elite models.
If the stratospheric prices prove to much, consider Panasonic's Viera line. Panasonic now produces Pioneer's glass, just saying...
Nikon's excellent D90 almost took the prize, but Canon released its 21.1 megapixel DSLR that can record HD footage just under the wire. Read the specs and weep over its $2,700 price tag. And that's just for the body.
Didn't you hear? Even YouTube has gone widescreen, natively. Now's the time to pick up an HD camera (no, a footage-grabbing DSLR isn't quite the same thing) to capture those memories, start a video podcast or both.
Though we like to spread the love, Canon nailed it again with solid specs, 1080I recording, 16GB internal flash memory and optical image stabilization... What's not to like?

Runs rings around the 'Ring and Gran Turismo inspired instrumentation... Enough said.
