    I agree with you there. I misread your previous post to mean all non-OLED UHD displays used edge lighting.

    The only negatives to OLED is possible image retention and that that aren't as bright as a LCD (yet).

    I went to my first CES in 1968, when I was with University Stereo.

    I am pretty much disappointed with most of the "New Technologies". Alexa still hasn't figured out how to give me a "Happy Ending". Also, I went looking at $80k+ new cars. most offered wi-fi, bluetooth, hdmi and up to 3 usb connections. None had a cigarette lighter, which makes my "Auto Suck" completely useless.

    No cigarette lighter, but you can charge your vaping system via the USB connectors.

    Funny you should mention vaping. I used vaping to quit smoking and I haven't had a smoke in over 4 years.

    Congrats, they say it's the number one thing that a smoker can do to improve their health. I think it negatively impacts people's health much more than they realize.

    When I switched from smoking to vaping and told my doctor(s):

    One said: Great! So much better for you.
    And one said: Oh No! It's even WORSE!

    Which seems to be a summary of everything you can find about it on the internet.

    But, hey, I made the switch and don't smell gross anymore. I ain't going back.

    Yes, at the very least vape "smoke" isn't usually offensive. We deal with a lot of poeple from different backgrounds. Some of them have been chain smokers most of their lives and they literally make my eyes water just walking by them. It's not that these are bad people, or don't bathe. It's the cigarette smell.

    I'll admit that maybe I'm over-sensitive to it, but WOW. You can still smell it after they leave the room.
