Some people say that cucumbers taste better pickled. What? Huh?
Why would anyone want a mobile device with a set-top box?!
That's like carting round a PC, monitor, keyboard and mouse when a laptop would do.
At IFA, Berlin Sharp set about wowing its press audience with a European premiere of it Super Hi-Vision 8K4K, 85in LCD TV, developed in collaboration with Japanese broadcaster NHK. Sharp 8K4K hi-res prototype TV Touted as the next-gen HD format, this telly has a knock ’em dead 7680 x 4320 resolution – 16 times higher than …
While I'm sure my girlfriend will be happy to get 8k4k picture, i'm not sure she'll be that happy with 24 speakers all around the living room. I think 7.1 is the best I could do, still have room for 2 on top around the screen, 2 hanging behind but anything above 11.2 and I'll have to live on my own.
At least, no more fight for the sweet spot and/or the remote.
It was a 6k3k demo AFAIK. The models on display on it did not really like the result, as it showed all kinds of blemishes on the skin ordinary HD does not. Make-up artists will have to go to new lengths to keep Hollywood stars looking picture perfect (silicone skin anyone?)
Samsung has once again been accused of cheating in benchmark tests to inflate the apparent abilities of its hardware.
This time Samsung has allegedly fudged the results for its televisions, specifically the S95B QD-OLED and QN95B Neo OLED LCD TVs.
Column The pandemic changed the way I used computers. For most of the 20 years before 2020, I rarely needed or used more than the browser, the mail app, messaging, and a word processor. Other than that I made the occasional foray into image and/or video editing or PDF preparation tools.
Then COVID movement restrictions made it nearly impossible to continue my work as a public speaker. Events disappeared from my calendar as everyone went home – for two years. But it wasn't long before clients came calling again, asking for something that could be delivered remotely.
By this point people had already begun to suffer Zoom fatigue – the result of endless hours squirming beneath the surveillance of a webcam. I reckoned that more of the same would only leave people wanting less of me – a circumstance any public speaker tries to avoid.
Samsung has given its 2022 smart television range the ability to trade in non-fungible tokens (NFTs), the blockchain-dependent certificates of authenticity for digital assets.
The Korean giant says the updated Smart Hub in its 2022 range includes an app that “features an intuitive, integrated platform for discovering, purchasing and trading digital artwork.”
The app is offered with three Samsung models - MICRO LED, Neo QLED and The Frame.
A Register reader triggered a kerfuffle for Samsung after asking the electronics biz if he could disable large and intrusive adverts splattered across his new smart TV's programme guide.
Ross McKillop bought the telly from UK retailer John Lewis but felt distinctly undersold when he turned it on to find the internet-connected device displaying advertising on its electronic programme guide menu.
You’ve got the TV. You splashed out on the sound system. But do you have the paint? That’s the question posed by Samsung, which just introduced LivingColour — a range of paint designed to cover the wall behind your pricey flat-screen idiot box.
LivingColour is Samsung’s first line of interior paints, and was conceived with the help of "colour expert" Karen Haller, who created six hues for three of Samsung’s tellys.
Looking for a shade that will provide “reassurance, reliability, and a sense of being grounded?” Then you’ll want “The Frame.” Looking for “feelings of safety and harmony” while you watch The Human Centipede (if you're unfamiliar, don't Google it. No don't...)? Restful Pine will do the trick.
Chinese consumer goods manufacturer Xiaomi has celebrated its tenth birthday with the release of a transparent television.
The 55-inch Mi TV LUX offers a substantial cylindrical base, a metal bezel and - at a glance - not much else. Xiaomi has offered some verbiage about the tellie making images appear to float in a virtual space, but we’ll spare you the quotes on this occasion.
Transparent OLEDs have been offered as a digital signage option for a few years now and your humble hack has beheld them frozen into fridge. Xiaomi reckons it has become the first company to turn them into televisions and crank them out in the kind of quantities demanded by consumers. Although just how many people can afford the RMB 49,999 (US$7,200) the device will cost remains to be seen, especially as it will only be sold in China.
