Apple Thunderbolt Display Release Date Imminent? Multiple resellers have been reporting low stock levels of the Apple Thunderbolt Display, suggesting that an update to Apple’s year-and-a-half old external display may be just around the corner.

Samsung’s uniquely designed 85-inch 4K TV was one of the highlights of CES 2013 and one of the best TVs on show at the Consumer Electronics Show. 4K has always been expensive and we pleaded that with Sharp’s new 8K TV, which is expected to ship in four years, that it comes at a cheaper price than the latest 4K TVs. We remember at previous conferences when asked how much the TV will cost company…

For those unaware, the software is only supported on the Apple TV 2 (probably why it’s running at over $200 on Amazon) and unfortunately doesn’t support Apple TV 3, because well, you can’t jailbreak it yet. Anyway, with that out of the way, lets have a look at some of these new…

Well meet the future, 8K. Unfortunately, it is four years early to CES, but Sharp has shown what the company is capable of. 4K resolution is impressive and will be, to the hundreds of thousands that have been satisfied with 1080p resolution, a mind blower. The problem is no company is ready to make a 4K TV that consumers will rush…

Unfortunately Panasonic were not very forthcoming with details, including pricing or availability, but did take time to discuss their new My Home Screen feature which will feature in a whole new line of 2013 Viera…

For those of you that are unfamiliar, OLED stands for organic light-emitting…

We love companies that think outside the box, especially boxes that have been built around what people expect the box to look like. In this instance, TV, the beloved portal into the world of entertainment, drama, history and anything other programs. For the good part of the past two decades, companies have looked at the TV and thought; “maybe if we make it a little thinner, people will love it”, display and functionality has also…

Before you dismiss the idea try to…
