    So with Samsung smart TV's (and I presume like other makes like LG, Sony) you can add apps or update just the apps from their own App store like a phone and your ready. You don't have to buy a new TV to take advantage of new software advancements like this.

    Am I the only person not bothered by 3d?

    3D TV is pretty awesome. I used to be sceptical until a month ago. I was looking at Smart TVs (ones with DNLA support etc ) and while I was in PC WORLD I started to watch some 3D TV's. Actually sat down in the end and watched about 20 minutes of despicable me and was mighty impressed. Passive glasses are definitely better though. Cheaper, easier and much more comfortable - quality is perfectly high too. After watching a few more 3D demos I was pretty certain I would be buying 3D. Already got 3D bluray player, so I figure why not.

    As the owner of a 3D TV I'd like to say yes but you're certainly not alone. What I can say is some 3D content, like movies, documentaries or certain live events can be amazing. Other content should remain in 2D.

    As the technology develops and costs come down to the point where there's little difference between a TV with and a TV without 3D support, people will realise it's a technology to be used at appropriate times and I expect uptake of the technology will increase significantly once the pricing barrier is removed.

    To further elaborate my girlfriend can't watch 3d content as it gives her a headache so doubt I'd get it even if I did want it...

    Passive 3D technology should not give headaches over prolonged viewing. Active 3D glasses will cause headaches though as they flicker. Although too much normal TV viewing gives some people headaches, so I guess everyone is unique.

    Well this is debatable, NVIDIA actually claims active is better as it allows each eye a short period of rest between frames (in comparison to cinema passive which is alternating) and TV passive has what I perceive as black banding as each alternate line is polarised for the other eye. Honestly I don't think any of the choices of tech are ideal yet.

    Its to do with an eye condition she was born with (She never likes to talk about it but I think it effects how the eyes line up). I don't think either sort would work.

    Makes sense, you know science of the eye is always progressing, if your GF hasn't looked into the matter recently might be worth talking to a consultant about it - of course maybe she has just a suggestion.
