Renowned as a leader in UHD 4K TVs, it probably comes as no surprise that Samsung has now brought UHD 4K display technology to its monitor line up. The launch of Samsung’s UD590 28” 4K Monitor is among very few models on the market that are making the 4K viewing experience affordable for all desktop users. Samsung has always held a strong reputation in display technology, but it wasn’t until I sat down to play with the UD590 monitor that I really noticed the stark difference between a truly high-end display and other conventional monitors I’ve used.

Samsung Evolution Kit.jpg

 

Ultra HD and OLED have gotten the lion’s share of the hype at CES, but one of the most intriguing ideas surrounding TV is how to make them ‘new’ again for consumers. Samsung’s Evolution Kit may provide an opportunity in the future for TV owners to upgrade and gain access to new features the company comes out with in later TV models. In other words, spending all that money on a high-end flat-panel can presumably get a new lease on life after this kit is placed on the back.

Four Essentials for a GREAT New Year's Eve Party!

by Blogger ‎12-17-2012 02:22 PM - edited ‎12-17-2012 02:22 PM

Most of us are still busily preparing for Christmas, but don't forget that once the turkey is eaten and the gifts are unwrapped, New Year's Eve is right on its tail! If you are planning a New Year's Eve party, it's a good idea to make sure you have these four party essentials now.

 

1. Great music.

 

Let's face it, music can make or break a party! So, before the holidays get too busy, spend some time preparing a New Year's Eve playlist that will keep you guests in a festive mood.  (And, of course, be sure to have a copy of Auld Lang Syne ready to go at midnight!)  If your sound system is outdated, unreliable (or non-existent), treat yourself and your party guests to a better audio experience with a new docking station or speakers.

 

 

(For more information on this product, see "Samsung Speaker Docks Pack a Mighty Punch")


 

2. A great bar. 

 

It's easy to spruce up your bar area before the big night by adding sleek new bar stools or stylish bar accessories. A wine decanter, bottle chiller, martini shaker or easy-pull corkscrew will make your job a little easier, as well as make a great impression on your guests.  It's also a good idea to take stock of your glassware now to ensure that you have enough for all your guests, and that they won't be drinking from a chipped glass!
