While 3D movies are still watched by many audiences around the world, the desire to own a 3D TV set at home isn’t quite at those levels. In fact several years ago, several OEMs bet it big that 3D smartphones would be all the rage, which we supposed made sense given how people reacted to movies like Avatar, and gaming consoles like the Nintendo 3DS.
In September 2004 Samsung announced that it had achieved more than $100 million in monthly sales for the first time in North America, by October 2007 this number had climbed to $500 million. It has taken the company over eight years to double that as today it announced that its TV sales have crossed more than $1 billion in North America for the very first time in October.
Is it any wonder that smart devices in this day and age have the capability to be able to “spy” on you? It looks like the Vizio Smart TV is one of those devices, where it tracks the way you watch your TV and – horror of horrors, will share out that particular data with third parties. This data collecting feature has been turned on by default right out of […]
Interestingly enough, in 2013, it was reported that Samsung’s Tizen OS was “almost dead”, but fast forward a couple of years later, and we have a new range of Samsung 4K TVs that are being shipped – and ironically, these happen to have the Tizen operating system running underneath the hood, which means that we are looking at smart TVs here.

Is it me, or is the trend of micro PCs growing in a slow and steady manner? After all, we have seen the likes of the Intel Compute Stick, not to mention Meego’s offering. This time around, it would be Hannspree that is behind the latest micro PC for your consideration. Hannspree is well known for their TVs that come in various designs which are more often than not suitable […]
CES is always about bigger, crispier and smarter screens and since 3D has been long gone, manufacturers need to rely on higher resolution, fancy form factors (curved) and next generation software to convince consumers to buy new TVs on a regular basis.So what better than a new marketing term to define imaging excellence and hopefully boost the sales?When I asked Bill Lee, Vice President, CBD – Product Marketing TV, Samsung […]

Samsung is no stranger to innovation, especially when it comes to the TV space. In fact, they happened to have rolled out Curved UHD TVs in the past to great acclaim, and just to make an even more ostentatious statement, this time around the South Korean consumer electronics giant has introduced a 78” Curved UHD TV that will feature a gold painted back, now how about that for being over […]
I would go out on a limb here and mention that many of us would have grown up having watched more TV than recommended, much to the chagrin of or parents. Well, it would not be uncommon to hear that watching too much TV is good for your eyes, but it seems as though the table has turned now, as British researchers have discovered that they could actually diagnose glaucoma.
