Although I didn’t get it in time for our best purchase in 2021, I am now the proud owner of the LG C1 OLED TV. It’s beautiful, it has 4K, HDR, variable refresh rate and more. Everything looks amazing on him.
As I bought it, I thought about how I’ve never been at the forefront of TV technology and how it will only take a few weeks until LG destroys everything with even newer TV models.
And like a clock,. The next generation of LG Display OLED technology, called “OLED EX”, which should “boost brightness by up to 30 percent compared to conventional OLED screens”, the company has also improved the design of the TV, reducing thickness by 30 percent and frame sizes from 6 to 4 mm on 65-inch OLED screens.

The accusations agree with astronomer Jonathan McDowell’s observations both days. China further argued that SpaceX satellites were not always predictable. During the October incident, the Starlink spacecraft “continuously” maneuvered in a way that made it difficult to predict orbital trajectory.
Not just an impressive EV, but an impressive truck.
Announcing a vehicle is one thing, actually tracking and making that vehicle in a factory and then selling it is an almost impossible feat for a new company. But like Tesla before him, Rivian did it and thus made one of the best trucks on the road today, EV or any other. Roberto Baldwin tests it.
They are currently only available in some countries.
