TELEVISIONS in recent years have taken over living rooms. Now, they're almost as big as one. At the annual Consumer Electronics Show here this week, manufacturers showed off ever-bigger TVs in a size race that showed no signs of slowing. Panasonic this year bragged that billionaire Mark Cuban owns one of its wall-filling, 103-inch plasma displays, which retail for about $70,000.

Beleaguered electronics retailer RadioShack Corp. reported its fourth-quarter store sales were down 19% compared to last year and that it would close up to 1,100 underperforming stores, the Fort Worth company said Tuesday. " Our fourth-quarter financial results were driven by a holiday season characterized by lower store traffic, intense promotional activity particularly in consumer electronics, a very soft mobility marketplace and a few operational issues," RadioShack chief executive Joseph C. Magnacca said. The company's fourth-quarter revenue was down 20%, slumping to $935.4 million compared to nearly $1.2 billion during the same period last year, RadioShack reported. It also reported a net loss of $191.4 million for the fourth-quarter, its eighth consecutive quarterly loss.
