Vizio hops into LED lighting industry

Vizio hops into LED lighting industry

I would wager most readers are familiar with the Vizio brand. The company has a great line of HDTVs that are the best selling in the US market thanks to the performance and the price of the sets. The company will also soon get into the Android tablet market with a new offering that sounds very nice for the price. Vizio is also now looking to get into a new market to make use of its LED prowess and I hope that it can bring the same low price and quality to this new market.

Walmart leak pegs Vizio 8-inch tablet launch 6-weeks out

Earlier this week, we saw the Vizio tablet in video when NBA star Blake Griffin was hooked up by the Vizio man with a new home theater and a tablet to control the system. I like how the tablet can integrate with the Vizio home theater and work like a universal remote control. I also really liked the cool stereo speaker setup that Vizio used so you get stereo sound in portrait and landscape modes.

Vizio gives Blake Griffin a hands-on with its new tablet

Famous folks always get special treatment. It has always been funny to me that the famous from the sports world and Hollywood get all sorts of stuff free when they have all kinds of money and could buy anything they want. Such is the case with Blake Griffin and Vizio. Griffin is the NBA Rookie of the Year and Vizio hooked him up with a cool new 65-inch 3D TV and a new Vizio tablet that is unreleased.

Refreshed Google TV to miss Google IO, debut for holiday 2011?

Google TV may be faltering, but we'll have to wait longer than next week's Google IO conference in order to see the search giant's proposal for fixing it. That's the latest murmur from the rumor machine, with AllThingsD hearing from their insider sources that while Google will be holding a session for developers wanting to code TV-friendly apps at IO 2011, the actual reveal of the refreshed Google TV - and, indeed, the launch of the Android Market for Google TV - "won't be announced until sometime in the coming months."

The Prospect of an Apple Television Bores Me

The Prospect of an Apple Television Bores Me

Through the many years I’ve been covering the technology industry, I’ve always enjoyed Apple rumors. From the absurd to the downright obvious, there is no limit to what people will say about Apple’s plans for the future. But as of late, I’ve been most intrigued by continued rumors that Apple is working on a television that would pit it against some of the best plasma and LCD makers in the business.

Dear Logitech: The Revue Is Overpriced

Dear Logitech: The Revue Is Overpriced

I’m a firm believer in Google TV. I think the platform has more promise than any other software running on set-top boxes today. With the right vision and some fulfilment on promises Google has made in the past, I think it’s quite possible for the company’s platform to entirely change the way we enjoy entertainment in the living room.
