Ultra High-Definition Standard Agreed Upon
It's becoming more common for projectors, receivers and other devices to support 4K2K technology, but before you go bumping up to the next big thing, you may want to check out the next bigger thing - UHDTV. Ultra high-definition television is absolutely ridiculous.  You're getting a resolution of 7680 × 4320, which equates to over 33 million pixels on the screen at once.  If that doesn't shame your 1080p set, nothing will.

Rumor: Samsung Will Cut TV Production by 80 Percent
We’ve been consistently impressed with Samsung’s high-end TVs.  This year’s 8000 models are especially slick, with crazy thin bezels and outstanding pictures.  That’s nice and all, but it doesn’t matter unless all of that turns into sales. Samsung has been losing sales over the last year or so, resulting in an atrocious second quarter.  The whole flat-panel market is a bit rough right now and Samsung has announced cuts in TV production, just like LG before them.

AUO Says OLEDs Won't be Feasible Commercially Until 2014
The folks over at AUO have a vested interest in organic LED televisions.  The same can be said of any television maker that's playing with the technology of course, but most don't seem to have the same take on the tech. While some companies have the "it's just around the corner" line down, AUO says that you probably shouldn't get too excited.  They're expecting at least another few years before OLED televisions are even feasible for commercial use, let alone ready for the general public.

Blockbuster Offers Subscription-Free Rentals by Mail
After Netflix announced a price change that managed to turn them from heroes to villains overnight, it's time for their competitors to step up and try and take advantage of the glut of people cancelling their subscriptions. Blockbuster's offering is a different take on things that reflects their in-store rental policy. Instead of signing up for a subscription, you can rent discs individually at a price of $4.99.  Simply pick your disc and it'll be on the way to your door for a 7-day rental period.

Netflix Pricing to Jump 60 Percent!
Say goodbye to the good old days of cheap, unlimited DVD rentals and unlimited streaming for less than ten dollars. Starting today for new customers, and after the first of September for existing customers, U.S. Netflix subscribers will find pricing on the unlimited streaming / unlimited DVD rentals (1 at-a-time) jumping from $9.99/month to $15.98/month.  Blu-ray rentals are of course $2-5 per month extra (depending on the plan).  This price jump isn't really a surpise given the amount of cash Netflix has been sinking into original programming and licensing agreements, but still 60 percent is quicte a rate hike.
