“The Frame” Samsung TV

Read More

Read just about any review of the 2-year old Samsung “The Frame” TV and you’ll hear about how it’s over priced to everyone except art collectors. I recently rolled my own out of two different TVs (long story) and have this to say about the offering:

The Samsung Frame TV is my favorite tech product of the last two years, but not for the reason you would think. The picture quality is great (for my needs and to my eyes), but it’s when the TV is off that this thing really shines. No longer do I have a black screen hanging on my wall. Instead, I have a piece of art or a photograph of my choosing… and it looks real as hell.

DAKboard

DAKboard is really just a framework for running a digital dashboard on a TV, monitor, or really any old panel you having laying around. It runs through Raspberry PI, is super simple to setup, and actually quite handy.

I’m thinking about building a DAKboard ran 55″ panel in my studio. Fun project.

The Pablo Escobar Fold 2

Read More

There was a Fold 1 that was promised and never shipped. And now, there is a Fold 2… No word on if it’s shipping to normal folks yet, but it is shipping to tech reviewers. And it looks to be a $2,000 Samsung with a shitty wrap on it… all for only $549.

Something is amiss on here.
