When you have $ to burn, it’s easy to have confidence

Even though I am dumbfounded by Samsung’s continued attempts to make Bixby a thing, I have to admire their confidence in the attempt.

There were OLED displays of many sizes, shapes and resolutions at many vendors booths with Samsung boasting some beautiful 4K UHD. Full breakdown after the click. OLED A lot can happen in a year, and […]
