    Samsung's foldable phone is the new laptop (if only it wasn't so expensive!)

    Characterised as a solution looking for a problem (but that’s what they said about the iPad), smartphones that literally double as a tablet are set to be the new mobile computing craze with Samsung bagging the obvious brand name and first mover status.

      Whatever happened to the 3-chip camera?

      There was a time when any electronic camera that didn't have three separate imaging sensors for red, green and blue was viewed as third rate. Security cameras hand single chips. Handycams. Not serious cameras. The first dedicated digital cinematography cameras – probably things like Sony's F23 and the Thomson Viper, were three-chip devices. Now, though, three-chip cameras are routinely criticised. What's changed?

              First and last and always: It looks like 2017's M9500 will be Samsung's last Blu-ray player

              Does the news that Samsung is getting out of the US Blu-ray market mean that the format is now living on borrowed time?

                An all new MacBook Pro and a 6K professional monitor are among some quite credible rumours that have come to pass for Apple’s 2019 lineup.

                    Home theatres will benefit greatly from Carbon Black technology (not shown here)

                    A revolution in projection screens? Doesn't sound very likely, does it? Because the ongoing problem with projection screens is that to be able to display colours accurately, they have to be white. Which means that they're never going to be very good at showing black.
