Okay, This Argument for 8K TVs Is Kinda Convincing 

I am not on board with 8K. The TVs will be expensive, there’s zero content for them, and they’ll heavily rely on internal processors for upscaling that already struggle to upscale HD content properly to 4K.

Seeing New York City in Ridiculous 8K Is Pretty Sweet

I love New York City. I live here, so I’m biased. You might hate New York, think it sucks, that it’s dirty, and think people who live in New York talk about New York way too damn much. That’s fine. You’re actually more right than you know. Read More >>

There's something a bit sickening about the timing of the CES trade show. One of, if not the biggest TV tech showcase in the world, it comes right after the busiest TV buying period of the year, Christmas.
