IKEA's new TV

I guess if you live long enough you will see things coming back. IKEA has introduced a new TV disguised as a piece of furniture. This from is what IKEA has to say about this "new idea".

IKEA announced in early April of this year that they’re soon releasing a new kind of television. It’s not engineered with any new technology—at least, not in the way most people would think. IKEA’s TV, called Uppleva, is more than a TV: it’s also its own entertainment center, Blu-ray player, and audio system.

Ah guys - I think I have seen this before. Yes, I have - from only 50 years ago I give you the Zenith Constantine/ Model 7100U Color TV Combination.
It had a state of the art color TV combined with. . .  (wait for it) . . .

21" NTSC color TV with 82 channel FCC standard VHF/UHF tuner, 5 stage UHF IF,
Radio: AM & FM Stereo,
Phono: Micro-Touch 2G tone arm, 4 speed record- changer,

Oh man am I getting old.  I guess I will just have to go have a glass of warm milk and go to my bed.  I just hope I will be able to get this song out of my head.
     "Everything old is new again".
