The technology powering the display on your phone, or even your TV, is a lot different than it was even ten years ago. More colors, more pixels, and a whole lot more acronyms and complex terms that mean something—even if you have no idea what that something is. Display technology in 2017 is a complicated business, but…
Advertisers have found ways to bombard us with promotions no matter what we’re doing: watching TV, checking social media, and even when streaming music. But the future of advertising could be even more invasive when the next public event you attend is full of flying video drones projecting inescapable video…
Ultra-wide monitors are great for watching movies, viewing photos, or playing video games, but terrible for reading web pages and long documents.

These phones have some of the widest aspect ratios ever…
If you followed the news out of CES closely you probably heard the word HDR tossed around a lot. This coming year we’ll see TVs for under $500 with the feature, and fancy monitors for nearly $1000. But what does HDR even mean?
Every year at CES, LG gives us a look at its craziest ideas for the future of display technology. At a press conference earlier today, the company showed off its refreshed OLED televisions, regarded by many as the best on the market.

The old-school mechanical displays you’d find at airports and train stations listing arrival and departure times have long since been replaced with flat screen TVs. They’re not gone forever, though, thanks to one company who thinks flip-disc displays deserve a revival.
Personal computers were supposed to all but eliminate the need for paper, but one look at your sticky note-covered screen tells a different story. Researcher Tobias Große-Puppendahl may have created the perfect compromise, however: an electronic sticky note that can replace all of your little yellow reminders.
It’s an unfortunate irony that the device we now rely on so heavily is also so incredibly fragile. Your smartphone’s big, beautiful touchscreen is an accident waiting to happen, but Corning continues its magnanimous to improve the survival rate of your hardware, and its latest creation, Gorilla Glass 5, should help…
I moved a few weeks ago, so I had to break down and re-set up my workspace. When I did, I replaced my dual-display setup with a new 34" ultrawide LG curved display. It’s had its quirks, but now I’m not sure I could ever go back. Here’s why, and why it’s worked so well for me.
Look around and count the number of screens surrounding you. You’ll probably run out of fingers before you’re done, but why stop there? Researchers at UC Berkeley have come up with a way to weave color-changing threads into fabrics, turning even garments into yet another display.
You probably take the DisplayPort on your laptop for granted, but the folks that develop the standard have been working hard to make it perform way better—and the next version will allow you to drive an 8K display with HDR video, if you ever happen to own one.

Apple has opened a secretive laboratory in Taiwan to develop new LCD and OLED screen technologies for its devices, according to a report by Bloomberg.
When people think of tablets, they think of iPads. To some people, the word “tablet” basically means “iPad.” So it’s a big deal when Apple creates a new one. With the new iPad Pro, Apple’s finally created a tablet that’s supposed to be professional grade, but does that self-imposed accolade stand up under extensive…
What’s most impressive about this touchscreen that knows the exact angle of the finger touching it is that it’s the same display hardware found in every smartphone on the market right now. Its special abilities are all enabled through software, meaning your own phone is already capable of this.
Microsoft’s Surface Pro series has now had four chances to iron out all the wrinkles in its ambitious tablet/laptop hybrid. Although its still striving to be an all-around laptop killer, it seems Microsoft got one thing very right with the new Pro 4—it has one of the most accurate displays ever created.
