I Want My Plasma TV
Forget about the fruit cake and scrap the sweater. High-definition televisions, flat-panel TVs and plasma TVs, are at the top of holiday wish lists this year, according to a new Web poll conducted by CompTIA, the Computing Technology Industry Association. CompTIA is a 22-year-old global trade association representing the business interests of the information technology industry (http://www.comptia.org)
Nearly one-quarter of respondents (24 percent) said that a high-definition TV, flat-panel TV with LCD display, rear-projection TV or plasma TVs is the high-tech "toy" they'd most like to receive this year. The other most popular choices were digital cameras (15.6 percent), MP3 or other digital music players (11.8 percent) and wireless home networks (10.6 percent).
Other wish list products that made the holiday shopping list in the CompTIA Web poll included digital video recorders (8.1 percent), smart phones and personal digital assistants (7.9 percent), tablet PCs (7.7 percent), and portable media centers (2.2 percent).
