Okay, This Argument for 8K TVs Is Kinda Convincing 

I am not on board with 8K.

The First Bendable Phone Is an Exciting Piece of Junk

Back in November, just days before Samsung teased its flexible display phone, Royole burst onto the scene with the Flexpai, the world’s first bendy phone. Sadly, demos were held in San Francisco, and I was in New York. By the time I found out, there simply wasn’t enough time for me to get there.Read more...

PCs Have a Lesson for the Smartphone Industry

Both Apple and Samsung blamed weak smartphone sales for recent disappointing revenue, at least in part. The smartphone market has entered a phase that the personal-computer industry hit several years ago: Devices are useful and good enough that people are buying replacements less often, which pinches sales of new devices. In the 12 months ended Sept. 30, shipments were about 260 million.(1) (The smartphone market is multiple times larger than PCs were even at their peak.

Samsung Bears Win After Stock Swings on `Shock' Profit Miss
