LG has revealed the largest 4K OLED TV shown in the United States today, a television featuring a curved 77-inch screen, and won a CES Best of Innovations award.
The LG Ultra High Definition Curved OLED TV was shown at the Consumer Electronics Association's Ultra HD Conference and was designed to showcase both the new consumer resolution -- Ultra HD or "4K" -- and the picture quality benefits of OLED technology, such as better color and contrast than LCD.
The long wait for an Apple TV will get even longer. Blame wearable devices.
That's what NPD DisplaySearch analyst Paul Gagnon claimed Monday in a research note.
Apple is shifting its focus to wearable devices and pushing TV plans out -- aside from its existing set-top box -- according to Gagnon.
The shift appears rather recent as even DisplaySearch had been expecting a product in 2014.
"Indeed, our own information from TV supply chain sources pointed to the fact that Apple appeared to be lining up resources for a product introduction in the second half of 2014, likely … Read more

This thing is huge. There's just something about a TV this size that dominates a room. Even a big room. It plays tricks on the eyes, in a way, as your brain isn't accustomed to seeing a TV of such girth.
The UN-85S9 isn't just massive in size (85 inches, 189 pounds), but massive in price ($40,000) and resolution (Ultra HD "4K," of course).
I got to spend some time with it, and here's what I found out.… Read more

Body Symbol HD lets you make a photo collage that includes a symbol overlay. The 19 pre-loaded symbols include hearts, smiley faces, and other recognizable images you'll like. You can write a … Read more
