A study funded by Samsung and discussed in the Journal of Vision may have found the reason why so many individuals experience eye strain while watching 3D content. According to the article, problems arise when our eyes are asked to simultaneously focus on the screen while simultaneously adjusting to the distance of... Read more...
Today, HP announced a notable development in its efforts to design memristor technology. The company has managed to map the chemical changes and basic structures of its own prototypes. The startling implication is accurate—HP managed to build a memristor before it fully understood how its own design functioned. The memristor was theorized... Read more...
Movie studios and display manufacturers have both been pumping 3D viewing as The Next Big Thing for over a year, but the market as a whole has yet to display much interest. According to the analyst group IDG, 3D notebooks are typically priced well above $1000, despite the fact that in 2009, notebook ASPs were ~$569 after netbooks were removed... Read more...
We've discussed OLED displays and their eternal position as five years away in the past, but a manufacturer has stepped forward claiming that OLED's really are coming in 2011 from the likes of Samsung and LG. These won't be any 11" screens for $2000, either—we're talking displays up to and including 42". This... Read more...

If one were to make a list of 21st-century technologies that deserve to be credited as the hardware equivalent of Duke Nukem Forever, OLED displays might just might sweep the competition. Display manufacturers have been talking about OLED televisions and monitors as "a couple years away" for at least the last... Read more...
It's too early to tell if this is the Eee Reader that was hinted about last autumn, but there's little doubt that Asus will be joining the quickly growing e-reader market in the near future. Amazon has started something that is showing no signs of slowing, with Plastic Logic, Spring Design and a host of other... Read more...
Oh, the elusive OLED HDTV. OLED displays have been around in some form or another for years now, and they've been in a multitude of gizmos for just about as long. But one device that the OLED has strayed away from is the big-screen HDTV, and the #1 reason is cost. Without question, making a 42" OLED HDTV would cost an... Read more...
When you mention "OLED" and "portable media player" in the same sentence, one of two devices probably come to mind. Sony's OLED Walkman, or more recently, Microsoft's forthcoming Zune HD. But really, there's a media player that's been touting an OLED panel longer than either of those two, and it goes by the name S9. Cowon's quiet yet powerful... Read more...
Somewhere, someday, we'll see OLEDs everywhere. You can pretty much bank on it. Unfortunately, you may be wearing inch-thick glasses and struggling to read your medicine labels before such a prophecy comes to fruition. That said, Sony's slowly but surely working towards that goal by first introducing a mega-expensive OLED TV, and now, by shipping... Read more...
  When we think about ECS and their product lines, we typically expect a budget-minded approach.  Solid products at reasonable prices that don't exactly wow the consumer, but don't hit them hard in the wallet either.  The ECS X48T-A motherboard that we looked at a few weeks ago was one of the first steps by ECS to...

The Wall Street Journal's sixth All Things Digital conference (D6) continues to make news--this time with Sony Corp.'s CEO, Sir Howard Stringer, showing off an OLED TV prototype that he claims is a mere "0.3mm" thick, has a contrast ratio of "a million to one," and is "a hundred times brighter than an LCD screen." Sony plans to introduce a... Read more...
OLED displays share the promise of low power, high def, ultra-high contrast goodness.  In fact Samsung claims their new line of AMOLED (Active Matrix Organic LED) panels boast 20X the contrast ratio of standard LCDs.  In addition, since the panels do not require any back-lighting, they consume much less power, so they are...

OLED stands for Organic Light Emitting Diode. It's been touted as an possible future improvement over plasma, LCD and standard LEDs for a while now. Since it doesn't require a backlight to display images, it uses less electricity than its competitors and displays better in sunlight, which makes it a favorite for small handheld screens where...

Sony will offer an ultra-thin flat television starting in December in Japan. It's the first to use the spiffy new organic organic light emitting diode (OLED) technology. It's not cheap for what you get: only 11" at around $1740.00, but OLEDs are wafer thin, use much less power than LEDs or plasma, and are great at displaying fast moving images... Read more...
For reasons unknown, a good portion of the enthusiast market still thinks that memory cooling is a fruitless effort. Many high-end users still believe that memory chips run plenty cool, and that putting heat spreaders and heatsinks on them is a superficial effort at best, and that they don't provide any major benefits. The fact that nearly... Read more...
