Skyping on your couch. Who would have ever thought that would be "a thing."

They've just announced the new ConnectHD (SWP400VC), which brings a wide-angle... Read more...

Conducted online in November 2011 by... Read more...
If Apple isn't going to reinvent the TV market, who is? Maybe it's Sony, despite the company seemingly backing off of efforts in recent years. According to a new Wall Street Journal article, Sony CEO Howard Stringer recently stated that his company is developing a "new kind" of TV. He also stated that "TV manufacturers, driven by their desire... Read more...
DuPont may not strike you as a technology company. But they are, in a weird, weird way. They make a ton of chemicals and off-the-wall internal products that help compose many of the doodads that we all use in day-to-day life, but hardly do you see their named stamped on the exterior of something. Turns out, they may play a leading role in... Read more...
Google TV. Remember that? Just kidding. While Google TV certainly hasn't been as popular as something like Gmail, it's a product that Google still seems interested in improving. This week, Sony announced a software update to the Google TV platform that powers the Sony Internet TV Blu-ray Disc player. This latest version not only powers existing... Read more...

The 3D Display will cost $499.99, which includes the screen itself,... Read more...
Are bezel wars the next great war in HDTVs? First it was flat-screen. Then it was the race to HD. Then it was 3D. Now... bezel size? Truth be told, bezel size has been important to both companies and discerning consumers alike for some time now, and LG Display is hoping to capitalize on the demand with a new 55" panel. It's said to have the... Read more...
Size matters, sure, but so does power efficiency. It's becoming an increasingly important thing this day and age, with power constraints becoming all the more evident and efficiency numbers becoming just as important as diagonal inches, resolution specifications or asking price. LG Display is taking note, and this week they're unveiling a... Read more...
Roku, Popcorn Hour, Amazon -- who in the world do you choose these days? Streaming options are boundless, it seems, and Western Digital is dead-set on continuing to be a player in the industry. The company's new WD TV media player family is this week expanding by one, with the introduction of the WD TV Live streaming... Read more...
A few years ago, television makers seemed to have no trouble whatsoever convincing people that they needed to update their SD sets to sets that boasted 1080p. And recently, they've been trying to do the same with 3D sets. But it seems that even those may be outclassed sooner rather than later. Toshiba has recently showcased a new high-def... Read more...
Sony recently introduced a television that would allow two players to view the same screen while playing multiplayer. The idea was to decouple the 3D effect in order to mask one player's view from the other, giving each of them a 2D view of their own part of the game. It's a brilliant idea, and it seems that Sony...

HDTVs are getting all sorts of big these days. An 82" HDTV still sounds massive, but not nearly as massive as it did a few years ago.  What if multi-touch is mixed in with that massive size, though? That's what Perceptive Pixel has done, and the company has just introduced the world's largest projected capacitive display at the SIGGRAPH... Read more...

Today, TiVo announced a partnership with Best Buy's in-house label Insignia to ship a Connected TV with TiVo. That's right; an Insignia TV with TiVo technology within. Pretty crazy to see that name instead of Sony or Samsung or LG, but Best Buy has some pretty serious pull in the supply chain. Insignia Connected TV customers can enjoy broadcast... Read more...
No company wants a product that's returned more rapidly than it can sell them, but that's what Logitech reportedly has on its hands with the Revue. Logitech executives have stated that the Revue's revenue stream is "slightly negative," and the company has slashed prices from $249 to $99, reportedly in a bid to clear... Read more...
Sony and 3D go together like two peas in a pod. From the very beginning of 3D's recent rise, Sony has been there to push things along.

Apple TV could be a reality, and not the set-top box that is currently named Apple TV. Rumors of Apple entering the television business have been tossed about for years already, and the latest ones point to an iOS-powered HDTV, perhaps as early as late this year. The source is a former Apple executive, and his information is that Apple will... Read more...
Talk about a strange way to introduce a product. We're all about health and hygiene, but health and consumer electronics don't often go together without an infomercial being involved. However, DirecTV's latest offering combines the two quite interestingly, and those who travel often will no doubt appreciate the... Read more...
Westinghouse probably won't sound like an unfamiliar name for those who have shopped televisions in recent years. They're generally considered a higher-end bargain brand, with reliable sets and reliable quality. And now, they're turning to 3D in order to keep with the times. As more and more TV makers push out 3DTVs in order to hop onboard... Read more...
