The folks at Sharp announced their AQUOS 6 TV line back in January and they're now shipping the 650 series, which includes a 50, 60 and 70 inch set, all of which are shipping this month. They boast dual core processors, built-in Wi-Fi and a Smart TV platform that allows you to take advantage of everything that comes with the latest generation of TVs. You'll also be presented with Sharp Beam, which allows you to stream content directly from your Android or iOS device.
2013 is the year that we finally get OLED TVs in decent sizes at not terribly ridiculous prices. The 9,999 pounds or approximately $13,000 that LG wants for its 55 inch set will set you back bit, but it's a big step from the $2,500 11-inch OLED that Sony first put on the market. Deliveries in the UK will start in July. LG is going to be shipping this set to US retailers later on this month, and pricing is set at $12,000 even.
The folks at Pioneer are really stepping things up with their entry and mid-level receivers for 2013. The company has trickled down quite a bit of technology to even their lowest price models. The $249 VSX-523, for example, is future proofed with 4K passthrough. At $599, the VSX-1123 adds 4K upscaling.
There's a new flagship from REL – the R-528 Special Edition. This new subwoofer improves on the 528 thanks to a handful of upgrades and a smaller overall footprint. You'll find similar tech to what's in their higher end Gibraltar G-1 system.
‘Schinder’s List’ may be one of the most powerful movies of all time, and one that personalized the Holocaust in a way that no film had done before. It wasn’t just skilled directing and acting that made this movie as good as it was though – Spielberg met with Holocaust survivors and listened to their stories, incorporating all of that into the film. Spielberg wants to make sure everyone can share in that and learn firsthand from people who were there, and so has founded the IWitness project.
