What We Wish to See in TV in 2011

Written on January 19, 2011 by Adam Eve

While advancements in television technology is flying high, the market is not. The reason: Advance TVs in the market today are not really what consumers are looking for.

If you do not have any idea what’s trending in gadgets and technology today, you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that old TVs are still in the business — both in terms of consumer demand and technological advancements. Though technological advancements are inevitable, TV manufacturers are still missing some point. So how can they better serve you, the people who actually buy TVs? There are two ways: Cheaper TVs and televisions that can play nicely with other gadgets.

For TV manufacturers, falling prices on panels and making of HD TVs can be a dilemma. TV makers have been aggressive in their pricing, forcing some competitors to follow. This meant thin market, making the companies’ TV businesses unviable. And their plan to combat this setback is to manufacture more advance TVs that they charge a premium for. However, consumers aren’t in the mood to roll in the dough now. In fact, they are demanding for cheaper television sets.

What it Takes for 3D to Hit?

Written on January 14, 2011 by Adam Eve

Though 3D is one of the biggest innovations there is, it is not big enough for consumers to take. With the recession still rampant, and with HD TVs just got affordable, what does it take for 3D devices to hit?

During the CES 2011, 3D TVs and smart TVs were two of the main categories and themes in display. Admittedly, some manufacturers think that they’ve over-estimated the sales potential of 3D devices. Consumers even showed that they are not much into 3D as of the moment. Still, manufacturers are not giving it all up. But the question still lingers: What does it take for 3D TVs to hit?

Obviously, the biggest drawback of 3D devices in home is pricing. To think that there is still recession, and many consumers just bought their HD TVs. Simply put, the price that one needs to pay for 3D must drop first, before it proliferates at home. The second issue that 3D adoption is facing is lack of content. Albeit Avatar showcased what a film could be when 3D is done well, there’s still too little high quality content available. Only when there’s a steady flow of 3D content that users will begin to feel out-of-place, that they might consider buying a 3D TV.

Magnetics-based that is ultra responsive and multi-dimensional. Could the Razer Hydra Sixense be the future of desktop gaming or will it be a novelty?

CES 2011 has certainly showed us what’s in store for the coming year. And one that certainly grabbed our attention was Razer’s Hydra Sixense motion controller for desktop computer gaming. Although it has yet to be confirmed if the revolutionary Wii-mote-like hardware is finished with its developmental stages, Razer certainly took the initiative to show if off at the CES. From what we saw from the video, the motion controller is magnetics-based and tends to be extremely responsive and multi-dimensional (something Wii-mote has been lacking all these years as it solely relies on its novelty and innovativeness).

A business falls, InternetTV takes a share of the spotlight, and Samsung unveils the refrigerator of the future. This round-up gives the industry's recent ups and downs.

Several interesting news bits came our way today, folks as the world of technology had its ups and downs plus whoah and whuts over the past hours. OCZ finally lets go of the DRAM market, iGUGU and Vulkano tries to impress us with their versions of Internet TV, plus Samsung may be on to something with their RF4289 Refrigerator.

Let’s start things up with OCZ. What’s up OCZ? After a decade of being a pretty nice provider of the world’s finest DRAM, it looks like the company is pulling the plug on that department and decides to focus more on their SSD products. After receiving several competition where speed and prices usually dictate the winner, it seems like getting too much competition on one single desktop hardware makes it hard for one to truly succeed. We’ll miss those sleek Z designs embedded on those shiny DRAMs, but we wish OCZ luck on their focused endeavor.
