Question by Benjamin: What kind of technology is used to make super thin TVs? There are various TV technologies present, but which technology is considered most advance to reduce the thickness of TV panel at optimum level?
Answer by RandolphThe thinnest TV of all other TV is the OLED TV that is soon going to hit the market. The reason of its thinness is because it does not use backlights like the other types of TVs. It emits light on its own. And the intensity or brightness of the light depends on the amount of electrical current applied. The more current, the brighter the light. These are the reason that makes OLED TV thin. LG recently announced its ultra thin 55” OLED TV in the CES this year, which is soon going to come out in the market.

Question by jeff g: Why is the typing input super slow in my Pages document on iPad? I imported a Word document to Pages on my iPad. It’s about 7 pages long. While editing the document on the iPad the input while typing is very slow. Is this just because the iPad isn’t powerful enough or can I fix this somehow? Thanks!
Answer by iDevice.mobiI edit and create larger document on ipad without a problem. You are running low on RAM and cache. Make sure you keep 10% of memory free. If you have 16GB make sure you have 1.6 GB space free. 3.2 GB Should be free if you have 32GB.
Go to settings, then SAFARI , clear all cache.
Press sleep and home button at once and let it completely shut off, redraft after 1 minute.
I am sure your ipad will faster after taking these steps.
iPad has enough power for what it’s used for.Keeping 10% memory free applies to even top of the line laptops.

This is a video of Super Skyrim Bros, a mod created by Skyrim Nexus member clintmich. It’s Mario themed. For those of you who don’t know who Mario is, he’s the guy that checks ID’s on weekends at my local bar. No? Not that Mario? I’m so confused.
When installed, the mod places a house near Winterhold. When your character sleeps at the house, he or she will begin dreaming and enter the Mushroom Kingdom. There you’ll find Goombas, Koopa Troopas, Bowser and the Princess, which of course needs saving. While you can’t just jump on the baddies to defeat them, you’ll find Mario-themed weapons in the dreamworld. You can also pick up coins and exchange them for prizes.
Admittedly, the demo makes it look pretty decent. The kind of mod you’ll install and play for a solid ten minutes. I played Skyrim for 145 hours. That’s time I’ll never get back. And you know what? I don’t want it. I’LL SLEEP WHEN I’M DEAD, COWBOY. I probably should have prefaced these last couple posts with I’m on margarita number four.
Hit the jump for a video demo. Click HERE to go download the mod yourself.

Amazon just announced the Kindle Fire HD, and we heard all kinds of magical promises: a beautiful display, super duper fast WiFi, and a host of new features. On almost every count, Amazon delivered, and at a wonderful price point.
After getting up close and personal with the 7-inch Fire HD, the first thing you notice is the display. Yes, the rumors are true. It’s gorgeous. In fact, it’s on par with a Retina display iPad. All images (whether they’re within magazines, in video, on the web, or whatever) look crisp and clear. Zoom, and zoom again. You still won’t find a noticeable level of pixelation.
We also played around with a few new features, like FreeTime, and took a look at the revamped email, Facebook and Skype apps. Facebook is usually a truly terrible experience on mobile, but with better WiFi and the improved processor, the app seems to move relatively quickly. Though, logging in and firing up the app to begin with were a bit painful.
As far as responsiveness goes, the Fire HD is incredibly snappy. Scrolling through the carousel, pinching to zoom on a webpage, and flipping pages inside a magazine is a joyous experience. The words “instant gratification” come to mind, which is a bit of a contrast to most tablets (yes, even the iPad).
Unfortunately, the promise of supernaturally fast WiFi didn’t quite come to fruition. To be fair, there are about a billion reporters here clogging up the WiFi network, but loading the TechCrunch webpage and opening Facebook took a hot second. A cold second? It took longer than I expected.
The new system uses dual-band WiFi and has two different antennae, just in case your hand happens to block one. It also uses MIMO technology, which uses the echoes (caused by objects in the world) as opportunities to listen better, and thread together the original message.
I’m not saying that the new WiFi is slow by any means — I’m simply saying that it’s not as great as Bezos made it out to be. Of course, if you buy one, you won’t be enjoying the HD Fire on a crowded WiFi network, and so results may obviously vary.
The 8.9-inch model isn’t available for our playing pleasure right now, but the 7-inch model feels great in the hand. It’s got a soft-touch rubber-ish back panel that is comfortable and offers a solid grip, though it does soak up prints a bit. The corners are a bit more rounded than they were on the original Fire and it is noticeably thinner and lighter. The backside tapers to get ever-thinner toward the edge of the device, which offers a better handle on the 7-inch tablet. It’s a much smoother backside than the sharper first-gen Fire.
The dual-stereo speakers not only sound great, but add a nice design flare to the Fire HD. They lie on each side of the device, with a plastic strip running along the backside of the tab. Kindle is branded across the plastic.
All in all, I’m highly impressed. Aside from the semi-slow WiFi (which may be forgiven once I’m on my own network come review time), this is just about everything you could ask for from a tablet, and for an incredible price.Related Posts:
We’d heard that the International Telecommunication Union was close to approving Super Hi-Vision as an Ultra High Definition TV standard, and the UN agency hasn’t waited long to confirm the rumors. The recommendation to use NHK’s 7,680 x 4,320 format has gone unopposed and should define the parameters for incredibly detailed 8K video worldwide. This shouldn’t lead anyone to return that 4K TV just yet — once again, it’s important to remember that NHK still won’t start any kind of wider testing until 2020. That’s also assuming that the first 8K sets are down to Earth instead of the incredibly expensive 145-inch variety.
