Starting in 2010 when Apple made the retina display and display quality a central theme for their product marketing, displays have moved up from the doldrums into an unprecedented renaissance of new display technologies for smartphones, tablets, TVs, and entirely new classes of products like wearable displays.
Consumer research group Global Reviews has released a report analysing the experiences of Australians looking to buy 46-55-inch televisions online. It found that JB Hi-Fi is the most preferred online store due to a perception of having the best prices. Harvey Norman, meanwhile, has a hard time holding onto would-be customers, with the majority defecting to another retailer before making their final purchase.
App-based competitions are fun, aren’t they? Car company Kia for the Australian Open Tennis are challenging people to return a virtual serve on their phone, but now someone has put a tablet through a TV trying to beat the game. It’s the Wiimote catastrophe all over again. Does nobody ever learn?

Sony’s new 4K TVs are unbendingly plain but pretty much what a reasonable near-future human would really want in a giant TV: a big beautiful screen that doesn’t need extra curves or egregious size to give you eyegasms.

Having already divulged its 105-inch LCD UltraHD television earlier this month, LG has unwrapped its super-premium lineup of 4K OLEDs going into CES (the big Consumer Electronics Show) in Las Vegas this week. Welcome to the curve.
At last year’s Consumer Electronics Show, Samsung unveiled the world’s largest 4K TV. But its paltry 85-inch size is now dwarfed bigger brother, which offers up 110 inches of screen real estate. This things is crazy big.
