Samsung has just launched its 75-inch (189-cm) ES9000 OLED TV in South Korea with a whopping price of 19.8 Million Won ($17,450). It is the world’s largest super OLED TV and sports a gorgeous 7.9mm-thick bezel, while its 1GHz dual-core processor allows it to run multiple Smart TV application simultaneously. The Samsung ES9000 features what the company calls a “Diamond Black Panel” which it claims improves the clearness, contrast and brightness of the display. “The ES900 is the world’s largest super OLED TV to be produced from a single pane of glass and showcases the ultimate in picture quality by featuring unmatched vivid and true-to-life picture quality in both 2D and 3D,” Samsung said in a press release.

Emirates has unveiled the world’s widest seat-back television screens, to be installed on its new aircraft. The new 12.1-inch screen is the largest economy class seatback system in the world, Emirates says, complete with high-definition displays — another first for the Dubai-based carrier. New screens are also being installed in premium classes, Emirates said May 31, including a 27-inch widescreen in First Class and 20-inch screen in Business Class. Emirates, which is competing with rival Etihad to build a hub-based model from its location in the Arabian Gulf, has long been recognized for the money it pours into in-flight entertainment, winning world’s best entertainment from airline ratings website Skytrax for the last seven years.
The new upgrade, due to be installed on all new Boeing 777s in the fleet and on the carrier’s A380 aircraft (pictured below) from next year, is likely to further consolidate this position. A new computer system, developed by Emirates and Panasonic, will drive the screens, offering over 300 movies, thousands of music tracks and television programs. The new system has been based on a consumer tablet, Emirates says, with the aim of allowing passengers to ‘swipe’ and ‘scroll’ to access functionality and communications features such as SMS and email access. A tie-up with skating brand Quiksilver will also see new entertainment offered for children, including a branded travel journal, wallet and playing cards.
Back in my day, companies like Gatorade, Wheaties, Nike, and Reebok used athletes to get the point across that their brand was aimed at the sports players. I’m a Ricky Rosay fan, don’t get me wrong, but he’s so big, when he turns in a circle, people throw him a welcome back party. He isn’t exactly the perfect picture of athleticism. However, although Reebok is taking the a different road with who sports their brand, Rick Ross’s international recognition will do nothing but good things for their name. Check out the makings of the first collaboration between Rick Ross and Reebok.
The new commercial for the video game NBA 2K12 isn’t exactly basketball discourse at its finest, but it’s guaranteed to get people talking. The premise: Chicago Bulls legend Michael Jordan, the rapper Drake, and fans of the Portland Trail Blazers, Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers and New York Knicks debate which NBA team was the greatest of all time. In case you were wondering, Jordan names the 1996 Bulls as the greatest team ever. That year, the Bulls went 72-10 in the regular season, setting an NBA record for wins, and 15-3 in the postseason, defeating the Seattle SuperSonics in six games to win the title. Jordan averaged 30.4 points, 6.6 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 2.2 steals and shot 49.5% from the field on his way to his fourth ring.
Quote Of The Day: Michael Jordan: “I let my ring do my talking.”

I’ve said many times before that I spent the majority of my growing up in the 90′s. Video games, movies, and television shows were all the building blocks of the person I am today (just like Bob Marley had an influence on my parents). I came across a video recently that pretty much sums up everything I knew and loved as a kid growing up in the 90′s. And if you had access to media, you know most of it too. Check the method.

Japanese electronics giant Toshiba plans to market the world’s first 3D television that does not need special glasses later this year, a report said on Tuesday. Toshiba will unveil three models of the television, which will cost several thousand dollars, before Christmas, the Yomiuri Shimbun said. The company has developed a new system that emits a number of rays of light with various angles from the screen so that viewers can see stereoscopic images without glasses, the daily said.
“People can enjoy images in three dimensions from various positions and suffer less stress,” it said. Japan’s major electronics makers launched 3D television this year, but sales have not been as strong as expected while many customers have complained of being irritated by the glasses.
