LG's 2016 TVs: Everything Australians Need To Know

It’s that time of year where we see new TVs on electronics store shelves. LG is first out of the gates with its new screens, and they feature probably the biggest upgrade we’ve seen in quite a while. OLED and LED-backlit LCD TVs sit alongside each other in LG’s 2016 line-up, Ultra HD 4K is more important than ever, and Dolby is on board for some fascinating new HDR tech that optimises every single frame in a movie.


Go Sell Your Kidneys, Dell Has A 4K 30-Inch OLED Display

2016 might be the year of VR headsets and all, but some people still enjoy looking at regular screens. And the 30″, pro-level 4K OLED display Dell just announced looks like one hell of an upgrade.


The Future Of TV Is Beautifully Boring And That's A Good Thing

You could say that, historically, televisions are the star of CES. After all, it was at CES in 1998 that the world saw the first ever high-definition TVs. Plasma TVs debuted at CES in 2001, and OLEDs appeared in 2008. This year, however, everything was pretty damn boring. That’s not a bad thing.


Samsung (Almost) Killed The TV Bezel

Yesterday, Samsung is showed off its newest line of SUHD TVs. If you can believe it, they’re outrageously beautiful. They have got some performance improvements and new blah blah connectivity features, but what’s most striking is the way that Samsung’s creeping towards that platonic ideal of a bezel-less design: A television whose picture is hanging there in the air without any frame around it at all.


Capture Your Holiday Videos In Glorious 4K With Panasonic's New Compact Shooter

Instead of forcing your family to endure a gruelling slideshow of your holiday photos, Panasonic wants you to treat them to stunning 4K videos of your hotel room, random meals and various takeoffs with its new Lumix DMC-Zs100 — a compact shooter with a hefty one-inch sensor.


HP Goes Big With The New 15-Inch Spectre X360

One of our favourite Windows machines from last year was HP’s incredibly limber Spectre x360, a 13″ laptop that could backflip into a tablet if need be. Now, HP’s expanding on the idea, literally, with an all new 15″ Spectre just announced at CES in Las Vegas.


LG's New 4K OLED TVs Are Just Four Credit Cards Thick

That silly sci-fi dream of invisible screens that magically display graphics is inching towards reality. Thanks to LG, the world can now lust after a television that looks like it’s nothing more than a pane of translucent glass — and a very thin pane of glass at that.


Wild Wingsuit Video Shows A Guy Flying Through A Narrow Canyon

Video: Here’s a really fun wingsuit video that reminds you why you’ll never actually strap on a wingsuit and fly in your entire life: two guys make a jump and fly a line through a completely narrow canyon in Switzerland. It’s like pod racing through the canyons of Tatooine in Star Wars except even more dangerous because the pod is your body.


Ask Gizmodo: Can I Buy A Good, Cheap, Smart TV?

Hi Gizmodo, My boyfriend and I have moved in together, and we need a smart (ish?) TV that’s good but cheap. Does such a thing exist? Thanks, Gen.


You Can Now Torrent Brand New TV Shows In 4K

We’ve been complaining about the dearth of good quality 4K video — movies and TV shows, things we’d actually like to watch — for years now, ever since Ultra HD TVs started hitting the shelves of our favourite electronics stores. In Australia, having our relatively crappy internet speeds, streaming 4K over Netflix has never really been viable. Ultra HD Blu-ray looks great, though it’s been a year away for five years now.

But good news for pirates over the weekend — a torrent release group has cracked the encryption on Netflix and Amazon’s 4K video lockers, and ultra high-def rips of brand new TV shows are flooding out across the ‘net.
