Why do I need a check up on my system

As an ISF calibrator for many years I find myself in a lot of homes to make their systems perform better. I am constantly amazed at how many systems have everything they need to watch HD video and listen to HD audio but have never seen or heard either. I find that about 5 out of 10 consumers fall into this category. Why is this happening you ask? 

Why Doesn't the Press Call, email, Text, Tweet?

PR/publicity folks are just like every trend follower..always ready to jump to the next "new/hot" thing.  In their case to prove they are like way in front of the communications curve. Blogging? Fading. Facebook Like page (Fan page is out), Tweety? Oh yeah!

Writing clean/concise/meaty releases, checking the Press Web Site? That is so yesterday!!!

We wrapped our many years of experience and feedback from media people into the attached article.

Sony OLED Screen Thin Enough to Wind Up Around a Pencil

The technology hinges on a new kind of organic thin-film transistor (OTFT) based on a new semiconducting material that has eight times the current modulation rate of existing OTFTs. This makes the display powerful, but there's at least one more clever trick--instead of relying on driving electronics based on conventional solid chips in their familiar little black plastic packages, Sony's built all the display driver tech out of OTFTs themselves, and integrated them into the actual panel the display itself is made on. This is crafted from a super-thin (20 micron-thick) substrate, making it flexible enough to be repeatedly rolled around a tube of diameter of just 4mm, as well as being stretched.
