One of the major keys to Apple’s success over the years has been the tight control it exerts over the components in its devices. Many things such as the iPhone’s A-series processors and metal and glass chassis are designed in house, in order to meet the company’s demanding specifications, before being sent to big…
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…
Apple recently added Night Shift to macOS, which changes the color temperature of your screen based on the time of day in the hopes that it’ll help you sleep better. Before the launch of Night Shift, f.lux was the go-to tool for doing this. Let’s see how they compare.
Touchscreens use a mesh of almost-transparent electronics to detect where they’re being touched. Now, a new microscopic 3D printing technique could provide greater transparency and higher sensitivity than the existing state-of-the-art.
Well hello there, overkill. This screen from Japan Display is a triumph in taking resolution to the extreme: it squeezes an 8K LCD module into a screen that measures just 17.3 inches.
The key element for a great tablet has always been a truly innovative and top performing display, and the best leading edge tablets have always flaunted their beautiful high-tech displays. The Microsoft Surface 3 is no exception.
People have been plugging Raspberry Pi boards into all kinds of displays for years, but now there’s an official—and portable—option: a 7-inch capacitive touch screen that will set you back just $60.
Samsung has announced a new series of prototype OLED displays in Hong Kong that, with their mirrored and transparent surfaces, are like something from a sci-fi film.
See that up there? That’s the world’s first 10K television. You can’t buy it. Chinese display manufacturer BOE made the 82-inch screen just for the bragging rights (first!). That’s okay, though—there’s absolutely no reason to own a 10K TV right now.
LG consistently produces impressive screens, and this one is no exception. The 55-inch OLED panel is just 0.97 millimeters thick, and can be removed from its magnetic wall mounting like a poster.
We love multiple monitor workstations, but “Ultrawide” displays, packing resolutions that rival two or three panels side-by-side, are looking better and better these days. After all, having more than one monitor doesn’t automatically make you more productive. Here’s how these new ultrawide monitors differ from a…
Samsung is continually improving upon the quality of its smartphone displays, and the screens on the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 take things to new heights. In fact, according to extensive testing from DisplayMate, one of them has the best smartphone display yet.
A lot of amazing engineering and design goes into making your smartphone. And smartphone displays are one of the most important parts — they're your window onto the internet, and the world. But the technical terms we use to describe them can be pretty confusing. Here's how to sound like you know what you're talking…
If you walk into a Walmart, Best Buy, or any major TV retailer, all of the TVs are showing identical videos, but their colors will be noticeably (to obnoxiously) different on every TV on the wall—even in Best Buy's high-end Magnolia showrooms. Why is that?
It almost sounded too crazy to be true, when Royal Caribbean announced that it would begin installing virtual balconies in windowless rooms on its latest cruise ships. Giant screens that simulate breathtaking ocean views in real time sound crazy! The travel company was not lying, though, and now they've got video…
The MacBook Air is a positively wonderful computer. One of the best! Its design and build-quality are unrivaled and oft-imitated. It pioneered the ultra-super-slim space. But by today's standards its screen is seriously lacking. And there doesn't seem to be much relief in sight.
The Galaxy Note 4 has a bonkers screen. That 518 PPI Super AMOLED stunner is one of the best parts of a great phone. But how does it hold up to the other big, high-res phone screens out there?
In the early days of personal computing—think UNIX early—text was often white or green on a black screen. That didn't last long, of course, but there's a little-known reason that those shadowy screens weren't ideal for users. And it has to do with your poor eyesight.
The Wall Street Journal says that a crack team of Google researchers is trying to build a modular super-screen, one that snaps together from a whole bunch of smaller displays to create a seamless image. A screen made of dozens of screens!
