How big is your TV?

Here I was thinking that the Sony Cinema Projector was a little over-the-top, but maybe in a few years, everyone will have one....because here's some interesting stats about television sizes from a recent article in the Boston Globe:
In 2004, the average television measured 27 inches and the vast majority were standard definition. Today’s average TV is 36 inches, according to Paul Gagnon, director of North American TV research at DisplaySearch, a California-based market-research firm. “Even people who bought a flat-panel set in 2006 or 2007 are starting to look at replacing it with a 40-inch or larger set.’’
the penetration of high-definition TVs in US households is at 56 percent, according to Nielsen
