 Sony Sees Improvements in Sales on Black Friday Despite Lack of Discounts
Sony is a company that's really trying to turn things around, and at the head of that movement is CEO Phil Molyneux.  He's been in position for 14 months and he's already starting to see things improve.  Black Friday sales were particularly strong. Numbers aren't in for every store yet, but Sony Store sales were up a significant 20 percent.  Calls to their online service also increased significantly, which is a good sign.  Molyneux gives a lot of credit for the sales increase to Blu-ray players which he calls "a phenomenal success."

Half of Americans Aren't Happy with Their TVs - a Third Cite Size as the Problem
Sony and Harris Interactive conducted a poll earlier this month to find out just how attached people are to their TVs.  The results are a bit surprising as it turns out over half of TV owners are unhappy with their current sets. Of those dissatisfied owners, 32% say that the size of their TV is the biggest problem.  We'll just go ahead and assume that means that those folks would like bigger TVs - it's hard to imagine many complaints the other way around.

Sony CEO Says They'll Beat Apple to Revolutionizing TV
With the rise of internet video, streaming services and a glut of new technology, there's no question that TV is in for a big change.  In ten or twenty years, televisions may be completely different than what it is today, and Sony wants to be leading that charge. CEO Howard Stringer says that Sony is at the forefront of the next generation of television and is hoping to beat Apple to the punch.  Part of that is the four-screens concept, which will bring together smartphones, tablets, television sets and PCs onto one content platform.

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.
