LG 34UC97 review — the curveball we just couldn’t hit

The modern stand and wrap-around design make for an eye-catching design, but what happens when you turn it on?

Samsung Galaxy S6 topples Galaxy Note 4 as OLED king

With Samsung's latest flagship fully unveiled and, if rumors are true, out in the market next month, it's time to compare and contrast its features with current and past smartphones.

Apple’s rumored deal with JDI could bring us everything we’re hoping for

Apple loves to have a tight supply chain -- one they can control, which will yield the parts they want.

Pixel Qi has seemingly vanished without a trace

Pixel Qi has seemingly vanished without a trace

More than half a decade ago, an odd-named company became the center of attention and hype because of the promised holy grail of LCD displays. And although Pixel Qi was able to deliver, to some extent, that much sought after readability in whatever lighting condition, the company has failed to make a profit, enough to sustain its business in a viciously competitive display business. But while it has yet to issue a formal admission, provided the company actually does still exist, for all intents and purposes and as far as official communication channels go, Pixel Qi is practically no more.
