What Would Earl Do?

4K...

will be the new 3D--well, except for 4K being actually desirable. The TV manufacturers need something to hang their marketing on, and this will be the next "big thing" (literally--really big screens will need 4K in order for them to look as good as the "small" screens (those less than 50" or so)). As soon as I find something "wrong" with 1080p, then I'll start looking at 4K (so... probably never--don't think I'll live that long). Personally, I think anything larger than 42" doesn't look that good at 1080p unless you step back to SD viewing distances; so 80" and above will need 4K... 110" or so and above will need 8K (or more?). Why? -> $$$$ (Wonder what they'll have at CES2020?)

Re: 4K...

Plus consider, how many people really have the room for an 80+ inch TV in their homes? Eventually this stuff will only ever cater to the upper middle class on up.

Re: 4K...

New business op: home add-ons to make room for the new TV ("yeah... I want to punch out that wall right there another 8 feet...").

Re: 4K...

Yeah, gaming seems to drive pretty much everything, especially related to processing and display. The only thing I really know* about gaming is: you can never have too much of anything (cycles, pixels, etc).

(*Actually, I don't really know anything about gaming other than what I read here and there about what others "know".)

Re: 4K...

if people will shell out for 3+ display setups with 24" and 30" monitor they will pay for 4k displays

You think DVD and old SD content looks bad on a 1080p set wait until these things come out.

and let me get this straight

its ok to file share netflix links and streams on facebook but if you do it anywhere away from there is life in prison and a baseball bat up your butt and extradition and seizure of all your assets.

Re: and let me get this straight

No, not really. What they are allowing is people to opt-in to putting a LIST of what they have watched on Netflix on their Facebook page.

No this is about Netflix being able to show what you are watching on your facebook. And as such show their advertising partners that you like certain types of movies and shows.

This is nothing about optimizing anything at all, It is not about making things nicer for the customer and their friends. And is everything about Netflix and Facebook making money off selling viewing habits. But considering your cable company already sells your viewing habits it should not be a surprise.
