In a bid to become the leading supplier of 3D TVs, Samsung will bundle every one of its 3D tellies and Blu-ray Disc players with two pairs of active-shutter specs and a copy of Monsters vs Aliens, the company announced last night. While many potential buyers won't be too excited by the prospect of a free BD, active-shutter …
Are they quieter than they used to be?
I thought the smart money had switched to polarised because (a) they're *much* cheaper to make, and (b) shutter glasses, being mechanical, are both noisy and prone to breakage (the example I saw was someone prone to jump off your face.. it was a few years back though and i hope those glitches are out).

Well, saw an ad at the Manchester Odeon the other day that you'll be able to watch some upcoming football match live and in 3D for £9. It'll be just like the 'old days' when people went to the pictures.
In fact, until 3D porn starts selling, I really can't see this taking off in the home at all, Simon Cowel in 3D - shudder...
