Lord yes. They became the unqualified absolute king of the dinosaurs, standing on the Yucatan looking up at that pretty meteor.

Isn't this the most interesting thing in the whole statement:

I wonder how they decide to do that...

I think it's actually still a multi-year process after that moment is achieved. LCD fabs don't suddenly vaporize and OLED fabs don't suddenly materialize.

Toshiba died in CE on a series of decisions that at the time seemed bizarre. In retrospect, they seem insane:

That's not precisely correct. Your version of it implies they will get 100% share of the top 0.3% of the market, which is kind of absurd.



So 15% of the 2% is a pretty tough row to hoe when you...

YouTube is even moving away from Flash on PCs, preferring HTML5 -- at last.

Again, no TV will stream Flash, no iPhone will stream Flash and nearly no Android devices handle Flash anymore either.

The bandwidth would allow things like higher framerates and 4:4:4 video for 4K.... Exactly how much bandwidth you need for 4k60fps and 4:4:4 is not something I know, however.
