A piece exploring the historical waves of country-dominated TV suppliers over the last 50 years from the U.S. to Europe to Japan to Korea and now, maybe China? – for Digital Technology Consulting. Read on here.
A piece on how to buy a 4K TV in 2016 for Hometips.com (via eBay), which you can read here – and, yes, I know “FALD” stands for “full array local dimming.” Don’t ask.

It is so frustrating that people even within the consumer electronics industry don’t know who David Sarnoff is. I took the opportunity of his 125th birthday (Feb. 27) to explore Sarnoff’s unparalleled impact on technology for a huge chunk of the 20th century for re/code.

Unfortunately, a quote I got from CTA president and CEO Gary Shapiro that, for some reason, didn’t get into the piece. For the record, here it is:
“David Sarnoff was an American tech entrepreneur – a pioneer in television and radio – who laid the foundation for today’s innovation economy. Thanks to Sarnoff, we can watch our favorite programs and movies at home and in color. Sarnoff’s contributions paved the way for today’s best home viewing experience – Ultra High Definition television – as well as video streaming. Happy Birthday to the General!”
