The words of New York Times’ editors Brian Chen and Nick Wingfield, as the duo aim to highlight that the droves of companies currently showing-off their latest innovations in the consumer television space at this year’s CES, may be missing one golden fact: nobody needs a new television anymore.

“Why bother upgrading or paying more for a fancy new one? Many people don’t. And if you spend much of your time watching streaming video on a tablet or phone, paying for a better TV seems even more pointless,” the report highlights.

Television manufacturers, however, are not giving up. Just ask: Joe Stinziano, Executive Vice President for Home Entertainment at Samsung Electronics America, and he’ll soon tell you why you should buy a curved TV: “Your eye is curved and this TV is also curved,” … “It’s a much more natural feeling.”

NyMag’s Kevin Roose went on the record at the beginning of this week by saying that he’s not attending this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, “[b]ecause life is too short.”
