I just got out of Samsung's CES event, which was mostly not very exciting, unless there's something about the concept of a fridge with a touchscreen in it that excites you. And if there is that's fine, I hope you achieve all your life's goals and get yourself a fridge with a touchscreen in it. But what was weird was this gargantuan 4K TV. It's an 85-incher, which is absurd, and it's more absurd because the screen is encased in this metal frame and is not removable at all. So, unless you basically own a hotel or choose to build your home around your new TV, this is going to be tough to fit in most houses.
On the other hand I sort of doubt it'll ever get released; it's one of those showy centerpieces that very rarely actually shows up in stores. No price or release date announced.
While the writer of this story is attempting to make fun of a new R&D tv that does not appear to be for the average home user, perhaps he might research a lot of home technology started at businesses first, who could make the most of the technology and can afford the cost.
Later if the market shows a large interest, then more monies will be towards manufacturing and lowering the price for the average market.
Then "LOOK OUT!" we all have this deluxe crystal clear home movie screen on our wall we can all afford.
Maybe Dan should write more about beer. He seems to like that. ;)
What I found weird was the article and not the TV. POPSci is becoming sh*t.
It's the same author as all the recent shameless rants on here.
And here is an article about Dan's lack of excitement. So Pop Sci is a blog now?
It is not beatup on Dan day!
I like Dan and PoPSCi and all is well! ;)
Somebody up the food chain should be noticing that the comments are becoming more and more about Mr. Nosowitz and not about the subject of which he writes. Maybe that is his goal.
Popsci's opinions on consumer electronics are laughable.
Well I for one am very excited, so there must be something wrong with me. I love this TV, and if the frame is non removable its obviously because its an exhibition item.
Engineers are busy creating the next big consumer item.
Meanwhile, the harem eunuchs, led by Dan Nosowitz, are busy criticizing. After all: they know how it's done, they've seen it done every day.... (Paraphrasing Brendan Behan)
Robot: All Dan ever seems to do is rant and "beat up" other people. If he take it, he should stop dishing it out.
