The K is for Krave

About this comic

I got out of vegas JUST before CES really started to happen in earnest, but everything I hear from friends there is the amaze-balls that is 4K televisions. Want. But then again, what the hell is there to watch in 4k right now? And what of 8k? Gotta be right around the corner. Will 4k be the 720p to 8k’s 1080p?

Oh technology…is there anything you can’t be expensive at doing?

    If I had any money at all I might even care. As it is now I love my little 24″ Playstation 3D display and I only have that because I basically stole it.

      “Periaatteessa voisi kuvitella, ette4 e4e4nille4 voisi vaktutiaa hyf6nteisiin…”Kavereiden kanssa suunniteltiin jossain saunaillassa ultrae4e4neen perustuvaa hyttyskarkotinta. Trakoitus oli saada hyttysten siivet resonoimaan, jolloin inisije4t olisivat pudonneet maahan ja joutuneet jalkamiehiksi (tai paremminkin -naisiksi, koska naaraspuolisethan ne verta himoavat).Suattaisi tuokin menne4 kaupaksi. Olisi sille4 ainakin yhte4 hyve4 fysikaalinen peruste kuin noilla muillakin. 😀

    Dammit! And I just bought a 70″ high def LCD with all the HDMI cables.
    NOW what am I going to do with this piece of crap?

    I think 4k will happen a lot quicker than HD did. The content is there (movie theaters usually play 4k). Also, with the HD transition, the big hurdle was moving from analogue to digital.

    I don’t think there will be a rush to 8k. It’ll be similar to the adoption of Blu-Ray. Most will see 4k as good enough for a while.

    If there were, businesses wouldn’t be interested 🙂

    Is “The Most Dangerous Catch” a British remake of “Deadliest Catch”? 😀

    Just wait until someone gets the bright idea of marrying Retina® displays with big screen TVs… we’ll have “The World’s Itchiest Catch,” and you can hold a microscope up to the screen for the most lifelike TV experience!

    Will it have solid glass, making them invulnerable to Wiimotes like the good old SDTV’s again?

    Bah. Go CRT TVs!

    All right this is a little off topic, but I was listening to some old Filmsack and you guys were talking about virtual reality. You wondered if maybe Hollywood’s bad portrayals and terrible graphics ruined the public for even caring about VR at all. I actually think it was Star Trek.

    Back in 1987 they came up with a Holodeck which in fake science is basically illusions made solid. In implementation it was nothing more complicated than a sound stage, which is what studios had been doing for decades. In other words if you ‘bought’ the TV show then you could buy their fake tech because it was exactly the same thing.

    I haven’t heard anyone say anything about VR for years, and I think it’s because everyone realizes it will just be crap compared to the fictional version. Any real VR that someone can come up with in the foreseeable future is just pointless and not good enough.

    ok that’s actually completely off topic
