Just How Thin Is Sony’s New Crazy-Skinny TV?

sonysuperthin3 I remember when I bought my first widescreen HDTV in 2001. It cost about a month’s pay was deeper than it was wide and weighed about 200 pounds. And it was only a 38″ screen. Thirteen years later, I’m at International CES staring at a much wider TV that is skinnier than a smartphone.


At 4.9mm thick (.193″), the new XBR X900C Series of Sony 4K TVs being shown off here in Las Vegas cut a remarkably slender profile:

Just for comparison’s sake, we held up an iPhone 6 as close as we could get to the TV (we even got yelled at by a Sony guard who might as well have said “No touching.”

We’ll get more eyes-on time with these sets when the show opens Tuesday morning. Hopefully, Sony won’t just be showing pretty hi-res HDR photos that make the TVs look awesome, but will use some actual 4K (and even non-4K) video so we can get a better sense of what one of these sets would look like in a real-life use situation.


For what it’s worth, these super-thin XBR X900C sets will debut this spring and will range in size from 55″ to 75.” No pricing information yet.


Like all new Sony Bravia sets coming this year, they will support the Android TV operating system, which should result in easier integration and use with Android smartphones, tablets and wearables.

Samsung Shows Off Fancier Fancy TV, Washing Machine With Sink

suhd3 Everyone here at International CES — including the hot dog vendors on the Vegas Strip — is showing a new 4K (or Ultra HD, or UHD) TV set. Samsung tried to one-up the competition by making a brighter, flashier version and slapping an “S” on it.


Samsung announced the next generation of its UHD sets, dubbed SUHD, which it claims is twice as bright as standard UHD sets, and displays deeper blacks. Samsung also says that SUHD will provide finer image detail, not just for native 4K video content but from any video source.

Designer Yves Behar upped the fancy level with a specially designed SUHD set that has a wider aspect ratio and comes on a pedestal that rotates the screen and provides a sound source.

Samsung also tried to do one better on LG’s mini-washing machine with a new washer that has a sink built into it. There were also some cleaning robots that look a lot like something from Star Wars fan-fiction:

No news yet on Samsung’s wireless products. It’s expected that this will come later tonight when the company’s CEO delivers the opening keynote address of the conference.

Craft Breweries Run Out Of Good Names, Sue Each Other


If you like beer, it’s great news that there’s a proliferation of craft breweries opening up across the American beerscape. There’s a problem with this entrepreneurial fervor, though: breweries are running out of names for their businesses or their brews.

We saw this even in a post from earlier today, where a brewery was criticized for naming an India pale ale named Gandhi Bot. The product amused some people and offended others, and a movie about a pacifist robot would be really interesting, but it really ought to be easier to name a product without being criticized or sued.


In the artwork accompanying their story on the subject, NPR shows a bottle of “Three Toed Sloth” beer, which is not currently the name of a beer or a brewery, but now it probably will be within six months.


When two craft brewers come up with the same product name but distribute their products in different areas of the country, this doesn’t matter all that much. When companies seek wider distribution, then brand confusion turns into a potential problem. Two brewers that both sold a beer called “Salvation” learned about each other and came to an amicable agreement, even blending two similar beers together and selling them under the name “Collaboration Not Litigation.”


Not all cases are so heartwarming, though, and there’s even an attorney who specializes in helping craft brewers sort through trademarks and legal disputes. Trademarks are limited to an industry, and alcoholic beverages are sort of lumped together. It’s one thing to market a beer under a name, but if you don’t apply for the trademark, a competitor can make a similar product, apply for the trademark, and then sue you.

Toyota Plans Commercial Release Of Hydrogen Fueled Mirai This Fall

Toyota announced the Mirai will be available for purchase in the U.S. this fall.

Toyota announced the Mirai will be available for purchase in the U.S. this fall.



Alternative fuel-loving consumers received a bit of good news Monday during Toyota’s CES press conference. The company plans to offer its hydrogen fueled vehicle – Mirai – for consumer purchase this fall.

Officials with Toyota say the Mirai, which can travel up to 300 miles on one charge, is the gateway for the hydrogen society of the future.


“Hydrogen, and hydrogen fuel cell technology will be an environmental game-changer,” Bob Carter, Toyota senior vice president of sales said during the media event. “We believe that hydrogen electricity will be the primary rule for the next 100 years.”


Toyota’s announcement of the upcoming availability of the vehicle comes about year after the company first announced the hydrogen-powered car’s existence.


Officials say that about 700 Mirai vehicles will be produced in 2015 increasing to tens of thousands in 2020, when the initial roll-out is expected to be complete.

In addition to traveling 300 miles on a single charge, the Mirai can be fully charged in three to five minutes and accelerates from zero to 60 in about nine seconds, Toyota says.


Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the vehicle is its ability to power other things. Carter says that in the event of an emergency the Mirai can be used to power all essential household electronics for about a week. He demonstrated the car’s electrical power by cheekily saving the press conference from a power outage.
