This Crazy-expensive Tiny Fridge Has a See-through Video Display Door

This Crazy-expensive Tiny Fridge Has a See-through Video Display Door
Compact refrigerators are great for small spaces like a dorm room. They are also great for bars and garages where you want to hold cold beverages. These fridges are mostly boring metal or glass-door affairs. But Hammacher Schlemmer isn’t known for normal fare, and its little fridge is something different. The description is notably vague on how the display works, but what we know is that it has an integrated HDTV screen on the door capable of showing video, photos, movies, and screensavers.

LG Betting Big on OLED TV for 2016

LG Betting Big on OLED TV for 2016
CES 2016 starts this coming week, and it looks like LG will be doubling down on OLED as the next big display technology for the living room. In preparation for the upcoming electronics show, I like to do some preliminary research, and came across numerous LG OLED display models which recently were granted Wi-Fi certification. OLED displays offer significant advantages in terms of contrast, color range and thickness compared to LCD screens, though they’ve not been cost effective for most consumers to date.

Nowadays you can emulate Philips’ Ambilight technology on different TVs or monitors using third–party or custom alternatives. The old Ambilight tech that is.

Deal: Save 63% on the 1byone Digital Indoor HDTV Antenna
If you’ve decided to cut the cord and skip cable and satellite in favor of streaming services, you still can watch your local channels the old fashioned way – over the air. In fact, OTA HDTV digital signals are often better quality than the highly-compressed versions that get passed along by cable or satellite providers. To receive OTA digital programming, all you need is a fairly recent model TV and a good HDTV antenna.

Sceptre X322XV-HDR TVs Come in Bright Colors That Make the ’80s seem Bland
The differences between my son and my daughter are amusing. When I took my son TV shopping, all he wanted was the biggest screen possible. My daughter, on the other hand was perfectly willing to get a small screen providing the TV was “such ‘dorable.”

Yes, This Is an HDTV

Yes, This Is an HDTV
If there’s one thing that today’s flat-screen TVs have led to is a lack of the sort of unique designs that CRTs used to offer. I suppose this is a good thing, as HDTVs are designed to focus our attention on the image itself.

InAiR Augmented HDTV Add-on: Second Screen on the Same Screen
Many of the so-called smart TVs today have built-in browsers, apps and other fancy features, but most of them can only be viewed one at a time, i.e. when you’re not watching TV. A new company called SeeSpace wants to make cable TV smarter with InAiR, a device that displays information without interrupting what you’re watching.

You’re Doing It Wrong: LG Unveils Retro TV with Channel and Volume Knobs
We live in a marvelous age. It’s so nice not to not have to get up off your butt to change the channel or turn the sound up. Who wants exercise? Besides, as a species, our fingers are probably stronger than they have ever been, hitting the keys on remotes and using our touchscreens.

Vizio M-Series Razor LED TV Review
I recently had the opportunity to go hands-on (and eyes-on) with one of Vizio’s new M-Series Razor HDTVs and I have to say that I’m really impressed with all of the bells-and-whistles you get for such an economical display.
