From CES: World's first 8K monitor from Dell which cost ONLY $5,000

The Dell UP3218K is the first 8K-resolution monitor we've heard of that's actually scheduled to go on sale. That's 7,680x4,320-pixel resolution, or 33.2 million pixels in all! At 280 pixels per inch, it should be even crisper than Apple's stunning 5K iMac with Retina Display. It's like having four 4K screens in a single panel.
And this 31.5-inch monitor isn't just about the pixels: It lives in an all-aluminum frame with
pan, tilt, swivel, height adjustment and delightfully slim bezels. It comes color-calibrated from the factory, and Dell claims it displays 100 percent of the Adobe RGB, sRGB and Rec709 color spectrums -- plus a sizable amount of other color standards that I'm less familiar with.
there's barely any 8K content out there for you to watch, and even the most ridiculous gaming PCs would struggle to play the latest titles at 8K, but this monitor isn't for those people. It's for the content creators who have the $5,000 -- yes, $5,000 -- to spend on a monitor. Dell imagines it being used in "commercial fields where in-depth image zooming is critical -- such as photo and video editing, medicine and diagnostic research, and oil and gas exploration." People whose jobs depend on peeping every single pixel. If that's not you, maybe wait until 8K comes down to a reasonable price and there's actually something other than your own imagery to view. Otherwise, it should go on sale March 23 at Dell.com.

LG plans to launch a flexible OLED smartphone before the end of the year, the company’s VP of mobile has confirmed, though it’s unclear to what extent the work-in-progress handset will actually flex. The OLED panel in question is the handiwork of LG Display according to VP of LG mobile Yoon Bu-hyun, the WSJ  reports, with the proposed device set to launch sometime in Q4. LG Display’s work on flexible OLEDs has been underway for some time, though the company’s efforts have perhaps been overshadowed somewhat by rival Samsung’s YOUM development. Last year, according to a Korea Times report, LG Display was preparing for

Syrian Electronic Army claims credit for CBS Twitter accounts hack

Yesterday, several of CBS ’s Twitter accounts were hacked, including its main account, and its accounts for 60 Minutes, 48 Hours, and CBS Denver. The hackers got into the account and tweeted a series of things relating to President Obama and the United States being in cahoots with Al-Qaeda . The tweets also had links that led users to malware-infested sites. While CBS was able to regain access to its accounts, it was unable to figure out who was behind the attacks, until now. The Syrian Electronic Army , the same group that hacked 3 of the BBC’s Twitter accounts, claimed

Can Technology Do a Better Job of Finding Bombs?

 With the horrifying images of the Boston Marathon bombing still much too fresh in our minds, and with citywide marathons coming up this weekend in London, Hamburg, and Salt Lake City , law enforcement officers and citizens everywhere are asking how to prevent the tragedy from being repeated. As Columbia University School of International and Public Affairs adjunct professor Abraham Wagner observed last year, on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, there’s “no magic bullet o
