Chances are you'll be watching the big game on a smaller-sized, lower-priced LCD set, even if the picture quality isn't as good as its rival. In the cutthroat, deflationary world of consumer electronics, the debate over which flat-panel TV technology is superior has taken a backseat to price.
Football fans aren’t the only ones looking forward to the upcoming Super Bowl game between the Steelers and the Packers. Cybercriminals are just as eager for the big event.
