January 26 is a pretty important day this year. Not only is it the start of Chinese New Year (Gong Hey Fat Choy!), but it's also the birthday of the most popular home tech gadget, according to the statistics in my head, the television. It was on this day in 1926 that John Logie Baird gave the world's first public demonstration of a true television system in London. To mark the day, Sony has created a brief history of the TV so that we can be extra grateful of our new shiny flat screens and 200Hz technology, and we've made a little mini-roundup of our favorite TV-related posts. Happy birthday!

First, our favorite TV-related posts, followed by Sony's (Bravia-heavy) history of the television:
