Do OLED TV’s Suffer From Burn In

Bad news for everyone who wanted to get an OLED TV soon; some industry experts have told Fudzilla that current generation OLED TVs suffer from a built in defect and that the companies are seeing a lot of TVs being returned after a year of use.

Apple’s overpriced Airbuds might have shipped before Christmas after all but they are proving to be a disaster for users and the environment. Users have been complaining that the design of the earbuds – like two tiny devices hanging from your ear, do not appear to sit well in the human ear, which was what most Apple fanboys were equipped with. As a result, they tend to fall out, which means either finding them, or shelling out a lot of dosh to get a replacement. The Tame Apple Press has been...

Shipments of smart VR headsets, which can function independently, will only be 100,000 units. These estimates only include VR headsets with integrated displays and exclude viewers, such as Samsung’s Gear VR and Google’s Daydream...
