Sony Bravia XBR-46HX909 HDTV Review | Reviewboard Magazine Product ...
The last Sony TV we reviewed with superb picture quality was the ultra-expensive KDL-55XBR8 from 2008, which also and not coincidentally featured the company’s last example of a full-array local dimming LED backlight. That TV’s spiritual successor, equipped with a similar backlight, is the ultra-expensive XBR-HX909 series, but all told, its picture quality fares less favorably against the competition. It does deliver deliciously deep black levels but they come with too many compromises, including issues with blooming and color accuracy, for a TV at this price level. If you extend your investment to include a pair or ... market research, surveys and trends

When I go shopping with friends, it's always, " Uhmm put that dress down, you have something similar." I know what works ... industry trends, business articles and survey research

MobileBeat: Samsung offers glimpse of superphone future with Galaxy S
The Korean electronics giant has thus had a lot of time to consider what a superphone is: a cross between a computer and a phone. Omar Khan, chief strategy officer at Samsung Telecommunications America, said that users essentially want their phones to be full-fledged computers or netbooks, without the same size display. “Consumers want the same user experience in an uncompromised fashion,” said Khan, speaking at the afternoon keynote at MobileBeat 2010 in San Francisco today. “It’s the power of a netbook in the palm of your hands.” Users are driving the push for better hardware.
