Sometimes we feel like the only people on the planet who don't have a flat screen TV. The folks just bought one over Father's Day weekend, and we're apparently living in the dark ages.
But there are a few significant reasons we keep staring at our old-school television.
A) We're really frightened by how complicated the whole flat screen set-up appears to be.
B) Our television, although a bit grainy, still functions quite well -- we feel bad replacing it before it's absolutely necessary. And, recycling a TV seems a bit difficult.
But now we have no excuse (other than our budget). According to EcoGeek, a cool little company called Zip Installation will hook that flat screen up for us, and take our old TV away with them (to be recycled, of course).
The service isn't free -- but, when we do break down and buy that flat screen, we think those services will be well worth a little extra cash.
