I'm thinking of ditching the dish and just stream stuff. The only thing I've been watching on the dish is the local news, and I can get that with a $20 digital antenna.

People still use the channels built into the TV? I haven't used the tuner on a TV in 20 years or more.

Honestly have no idea how it works anymore. I haven't had cable in just about as many years and have just been streaming whatever I want to watch.

Everytime I walk into Costco, I see the shiny new TVs on display but have no use for one...

I have a Panasonic 42" plasma from around 2008 that I paid $1,200 for. Until the new OLEDs came out, I'd not see anything that matched the deep blacks of the plasmas so I never wanted a new one. Now, I kind of want one of the OLEDs, but.... pretty attached to my ol Pani Plasma. We've seen some crazy sh**

A 4k HDR OLED from LG would be nice. We have the first gen OLED 1080P from LG. It's great. Also my laptop is an OLED. Annoyingly, my phone is LCD, which sucks in a dark room.

Note to self, don’t use metal filer for broken bolt. Let me explain. Drill the bolt thru, but the bolt wasn’t coming out, so thought to use metal filer to file down a bit more bolt. Instead it bust into the hole & refill that hole. Now I gotta redrill that hole w harder metal inside

A few months later, basic 720p models were maybe $600.

That being said, OLED is kinda the latest technology, but getting to the cheap stage. It's a middleground and there's not much more waiting to be done. I either buy one now or wait and end up lusting after whatever replaces it. It's a tough call. I've already been waiting years.
oled is still maturing. give it time.

i had one of the first autopage RS1000 2-way car alarms that had an oled display. after a year, it got so dim, i could barely see it. the organic part is the part that degrades the brightness.

i'm told they've improved it in tv's, but that it still needs some work. i prefer my tv's to be non-organic now.

I guess Boise State has its first football game today. It is like the only thing on the news.

so do they flip cars if they win, or only when they lose?
