It's no secret that companies like to outsource production to overseas markets where labor is cheap and labor laws are often lax, to put it nicely.

There are two main barriers to the transition to 4K Ultra HD (UHD). One is a lack of content, and that's being worked on by companies like Amazon and Netflix.

When Microsoft launched Windows 8, the company gambled on consumers welcoming touch on the desktop, just as they had on mobile handheld devices, namely tablets and smartphones. It remains to be seen if that gamble will pay off, but in the meantime, peripheral makers and other hardware partners have stepped up with products built to take advantage... Read more...

There are a couple of interesting things happening in the land of display technology these days. One is the push for Ultra High Definition (UHD) 4K TVs and content, which might be happening quicker than you think.

The smartphone market isn't getting any less competitive.

While it's not boasting a 4K resolution, it does claim to be the world's first 240Hz gaming monitor. If you're... Read more...
Given the success Samsung has had with Android, it's not really surprising that it isn't pushing its own Tizen operating system (co-developed with Intel) as aggressively as it could be. This might even be the first you've heard of Tizen, which is a Linux-based OS designed for a range of devices, including smart TVs, smartphones, tablets, in-vehicle... Read more...
Intel's Wireless Display technology, also known as WiDi, hasn't exactly taken off the way Bluetooth has, but it's still a blossoming protocol that has the chance to eliminate wire usage in the display market.

There's a reason the mantra "History Repeats Itself" continues to live on. For as much as things change, a lot of things end up staying the same, and all bets are off when it comes to pure nostalgia.

We have a confession to make (well, several actually, but all the rest date back to our college days, and some secrets are best left untold). Reviewing monitors isn't as fun as it once was.
