yeah, comparable to watching 320x240 resolution video on a 27-inch screen from six feet away - sounds great.  What will they think of next?

I can’t believe the filter just denied my comment for using the word back.

Sounds nice, but still a very small image.  The Icuiti is 42” and the ezVision is 50” and comes with an 8hour battery and doesn’t use up the Dock connector, so you can use a backup battery to charge your iPod.

true that is too expensive and too low res but jesus christ they finally have designed something that I wouldn’t mind attaching to a 6G iPod (higher res problem solved) and using on a plane. Before there were eighteen cords coming from the huges headsets and a bulky battery but this looks sleek as hell.

CB—have you actually tried either of those products? ezVision is huge and heavy. And you can’t use it anywhere because you can’t tell what’s going on around you. It’s useless. I might as well stay home and watch a DVD.

dodo: having watched the second half of B*G season 2 as 320x240 iTunes downloads on my 27” television from about 6 feet away, I don’t have a particular problem with that.
