Along comes new kid on the block: QFHD ..

Sporting a whopping 3840 x 2160 resolution and a mind-blowing 8.29 million pixels, it is FOUR TIMES the resolution of today's HDTVs.

That's IT - the fun new product from Apple

Wouldn't it be cool if the fun new product from Apple is this 52 inch Quad Full HD TV that can also be used as a mega-high-res computer monitor?

DROOOOOOOOOOOL... "Tito, gimme a tissue."

Did you check the bandwidth needed for that picture?
by Wilf_Brim / February 24, 2006 4:41 AM PST

Yes, and you need something like 15Mbps to get that picture, even with compression. We can't even get decent HDTV at 1080i without massive compression, and the makers are pushing out more?

I'd be happy with a decent, consistient 1080i signal. I thought I was just being overcritical at the NBC HDTV coverage, but evidentally, I'm not the only one unhappy with the signal. I heard the HT Guys (HDTV Podcast) complaining about it as well. They have compressed the living hell out of the signal, and you can really tell (compression artifacts, especially with motion, colors not so bright, picture just not as sharp).

When the broadcasters can do an excellent job with the current standards, all the time, THEN it may be time to more to something better.

Not even necessary...

It would also require at least 8 DVI/HDMI cables by current technology. And such a high resolution isn't really necessary at that size, is it? But still cool.

In reality

Yeah, in reality, this thing is a couple of years away from being anything close to affordable and useable by average mortals (there goes my dream of a fun new Apple product Sad but in the medical industry and other areas where this technology will be quite helpful, they can pump the tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars into buying the technology needed to drive it.

I'm curious Kevin ...

What uses could you think of in the medical field that could benefit from this technology?

No, not trying to be sarcastic, I really am intrigued and curious.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
