Apple's Phil Schiller joked during the new iPad keynote yesterday that the 2048 x 1536 tablet actually had more pixels than the floor to ceiling presentation screen behind him; however, that resolution presents a significant issue for iOS app developers, since none of Apple's own OS X hardware supports the new iPad's full resolution.

As Samsung's own money-losing business in flat-screen TVs heads from LCDs to the OLED market quicker than a jackrabbit, Samsung is thinking about spinning off it's LCD unit to act of its own accord.

This move has not yet been approved by shareholders, but given that the 2011 operating loss for the company's LCD business was nearly $900 million, we can't imagine why they wouldn't consider such a thing.

Sony’s dire Q3: Revenue ditches $2bn, TV and PS3 slump

Sony's new CEO and President Kazuo Hirai has his work cut out for him: the company's fiscal Q3 2011 results are out, and Sony's revenues are down roughly $2bn (159bn yen) pointing to an even more miserable full-year loss than hitherto expected.

Among the primary culprits were LCD TVs and the PlayStation 3.
