Super Bowl XLI

In preparation for Super Bowl XLI tomorrow, engadgetHD has summarized how to make sure you are watching the Super Bowl in HD. To be honest, unless I see an HD screen next to a non-HD screen, I can’t tell the difference.

My approach to the Super Bowl is it’s an opportunity to socialize, snack, and watch some of the most entertaining commercials of the year. Drew Meyers has assembled a collection of YouTube commercials from Web 2.0 companies. At $2.6 million for 30 seconds of air time, actually airing a Super Bowl commercial is a rather large gamble. Here is Technorati‘s YouTube commercial (warning: shoddy bleeping of adult language):

As for my guess on who will win, I’ll go with the underdog — the Bears.

    Thanks for your insight to the outcome of the game, I have already put our house payment on the Colts -7. (Take the under if you want to parley your bet)

    Are you serious? With HD content on an HD screen? It’s night and day.

    Dmitri, I’m afraid so and I suspect I’m not alone. This sort of reminds me of those pictures made of dots in the 80’s where if you stared at them long enough you could see a 3D picture — all I ever saw were a bunch of dots.
    Husband, oh — um Go Colts.

    Technorati’s commercial is pretty funny
    Go Bears!
