  • Optimus not prime for shipping on time

    Art Lebedev Studios was more than happy to take preorders for the Optimus Maximus keyboard (that we all thought would never see the light of day) but seems to have neglected to make the device’s firmware work well enough to justify the high price tag. The method by which the firmware gets upgraded also needs to be overhauled. Alas, she’s been delayed until the end of February. Read More

  • Cool, efficient, ultra-thin lights use OLED-like technology

    Pennsylvania startup CeeLite has created some bendable, inch-thin light sources using technology that has, until now, foiled inventors. Making large-scale “Light-Emitting Capacitors” or LECs has been attempted for years but only now have the problems that plagued them been identified and addressed. Now the lights are big, bright, efficient, and if they are anything like their… Read More

  • Very expensive Sony OLED TV ready for pre-ordering

    Sure, it’s slim. The world’s slimmest, actually, at 3 millimeters. And the contrast ratio, wow. It’s high. A million to one. That’s 1000000:1. At $1800, though, is an 11-inch super bright, super slim TV with a 960×540 resolution and a digtial TV tuner worth it? I guess we’ll find out. It’s currently only available via Sony Japan (for 200,000 Yen) but… Read More

  • Sony OLED HDTVs coming this year?

    Looks like Sony Electronics President Stan Glasgow hinted this morning that the OLED HDTVs that were announced a short time ago might make their way to US shores before the end of the year. Just in time for the holidays! Awesome. Not so fast, buckaroo. There’s a catch. There always is, isn’t there? The XEL-1 is going to have to tank in Japan for the US to have any chance at… Read More

  • Toshiba announces 30-inch OLED TV by 2009

    Toshiba isn’t about to let Sony get the upper hand in the television market. Yesterday, Sony announced an 11-inch OLED TV that is only 0.3-inches thick, has a 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and costs $1745. Considered a huge leap in technology, now other companies are scrambling to get on the bandwagon. Toshiba is claiming that by 2009, a 30-inch OLED TV will be available for purchase, ready… Read More

  • Sony's OLED TV: Awful small

    Sony’s XEL-1 is pretty impressive. It’s only 27 inches wide and costs $1,500, so it’s not that impressive but if you want to be an early adopter and feel like your TV can get blown off the table with a strong gust of wind, this is your device. OLEDs use less power and are more eco-friendly than plasma or LCD screens. Does this mean you’ll have an OLED in your home… Read More

  • Creative Zen Stone Plus: 2GB iPod Shuffle Wannabe

    Good for Creative, coming out an update to its Zen Stone DAP not even two months after its initial announcement. The update, which adds a small OLED screen and doubles the storage capacity to 2GB, has been christened the Zen Stone Plus. Other goodies include a built-in FM tuner and voice recorder. Fun for everyone! Too bad it’s not listed as coming out over here. I’m sure… Read More

  • Sony's Flexible, Full-Color OLED Display

    Sony today unveiled a new screen that will forever change the future of electronic devices. This new 2.5-inch OLED screen is made of a glass substrate that allows you to casually bend the screen. Since the display is wafer-thin, you one day might see these inside magazines as advertisements or perhaps on the back of a cellphone for viewing movies. It uses organic TFT technology to keep… Read More

  • Rumors: No Santa Rosa Macbooks But OLED On the Way

    According to my source who works with Apple, no Santa Rosa-related Macbooks or anything for that matter will be coming in the next few weeks or even months. Sorry. Not happening. Untrue. However, the OLED Macbook rumors seem to be true and our source says we can expect to see them within the next month. Extremely exciting news, I know. But hey, the iPhone is about a month away, so start… Read More

  • Sony's OLED TV Available This Year

    Sony will roll out its fancy OLED TV this year, producing as many as 1,000 units per month. The first models will be 11 inches wide and 0.12 inches thick and will be within “a few times” the price of current flat panels. The future may be grand, but it sure seems like it’ll be expensive. If Sony does in fact release the OLED TV this year, it’ll become the first… Read More

  • The Futurist: Hands-On With The Neatest New Nanotech

    So I’m here in Scotland with Audiofile Mike. It turns out that this home of The Highlander and hooliganism not only takes credit for bringing the world television, penicillin, and cloned sheep, but is now a steaming hotbed of new nanotechnology research. We spent the past week checking out bleeding edge nano, including ways of using OLED lights to smooth out skin cancer, microscopic… Read More

  • Samsung's Ultra-Thin TV

    With Samsung, thin is in. Its phones continue to get thinner, but yet they deny any problem. Typical. Now it’s taking its anorexic philosophy to the world of television with its new AMOLED series flat panels. By using a hybrid of OLED and active matrix LCD technologies, the new screens eliminate the need for a backlight, meaning the largest (and heaviest) part of the screen is gone. Read More
