High-def TVs hamper industry's push to sell new 3-D ones

LAS VEGAS – The TV industry has a problem. Many of us already have high-definition TVs and we’re so happy with the picture quality that we have no desire to upgrade to a newer model.

During the last three CES shows, the industry tried to lure us into stores with 3-D sets, but consumers didn’t take the bait. The TV companies sweetened the deal by getting rid of those expensive active 3-D glasses and offering sets that use cheaper (and lighter) passive glasses like the ones at the movie theater, but that didn’t work.
