Here's the thing, Samsung is spinning off nothing. They are creating a 100% owned subsidiary. They are talking about merging SMD or S-LCD with it. This is financial engineering, not some sort of strategic shift.
The other news where they are (as many of us expected) limiting future investment in LCD is the most bullish for OLED. But, again, as things currently stand, it appears they are bullish on OLED and hope to begin displacing LCD with it, perhaps reaching 1/3 to 1/2 of their TV production by decade's end. This "news" of a "spinoff" doesn't really change anything.
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
