  1. Where would all that screens go? recycle or trash the planet.
    Never know is it good to have so much technology or are we digging our future generations to the grave :O

  2. A billion TV’s would form a square of 31,623 by 31,623 TV’s. At 40″ per screen that’s about 20 miles on a side. That’s big but not even close to the size of Norway.

    You must be thinking of lining them up end to end and measuring the entire length.

  3. Om, I love your stuff, but there is an error here.

    A square kilometer is a million square meters. Norway is 385,000 square kilometers, which is 385 billion square meters.

    330 million square meters of TV is 330 square kilometers, equal to an 18×18 kilometer square. This is the size of a city, but not a large country.

    Still, the point remains intact. That is a lot of TV!

  4. It might be interesting to see how big an area would smartphones cover…does higher obsolescence compensate for much smaller screen size?
