Just 1 month after big OLEDs debut at CES, Samsung plans to dominate the OLED market and pushes their entire LCD business to the side:

Don't tell the guys over in the Plasma & LCD forums... but expect a major market shift to OLEDs in the next 24 months...

This is at least the 3rd post of this "news". And Rob Enderle's analysis while provocative is actually wrong.

Nearly nothing will happen within 24 months.

Even the optimistic scenario of a $20 billion market by 2018 is a small fraction of the TV business. And Samsung cornering that market? News flash: LG has a leg up on Samsung and Samsung currently has absolutely no method to truly mass produce OLED TVs.

Don't tell the guys in this thread, but we've been talking about this for a year. There is no need for a new thread here, requesting it be merged.

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.)

I remember when the CRT died with the advent of plasma. And I remember when plasma died with the advent of LCD. None of those older technologies exist anymore...

Oh wait...yeah they do.

I'm not saying that OLED won't be the next big thing and in about 5-10 years when the tech is mature I'll buy one. But the only thing that will happen in the next 24 months is that a bunch of people will be separated from a boatload of money for a barely functional technology. And that is assuming there is even a product on the market within the next 24 months. Or that it isn't overtaken by say Sony's (?) LED pixel technology, or something else.

EDIT: That article is completely riduculous. Someone had a deadline and needed to write some drivel to earn their paycheck...
