KoreaTimes - both LG and Samsung won't be able to ship OLED TVs in 2012

Korea Times posted an article in which they say that both Samsung and LG won't be able to start producing OLED TVs in 2012 - as both company are facing technical issues and very low yields. Both companies intended to launch the OLED TVs in time for the Olympic games in London (August 2012) - but obviously they failed to do so. Last month Digitimes reported that LG won't be able to launch in 2012, and now we hear that Samsung won't start producing either.

The article actually says that DisplaySearch expects the companies to start producing TVs in 2012 - but only a handful. 500 units, in fact - that's hardly mass production. In July, DisplaySearch estimated that the two companies will sell 20,000 units in 2012 - which is also a very low amount.

Advances in technology are less and less impressive every year. The most important changes have happened up until about the year 2000. Ever since then, things have not changed nearly as much as in the decade before. Old tech is just dragging along and along. Except maybe in the mobile phone market - which I couldn't care less about.

Meanwhile, basically all rich societies seem to start to crumble... This is definitely not the best of times.

For three reasons:


That would be a fantastic piece of technology and an incredible advancement for todays societies.

You could go back in time and be excited in the 90s.

You could check, whether LG and Samsung are making it until the end of the year.


If possible, use a Delorean and not a Prius to construct your time machine.

To quote Dr. Emmet Brown: "The way I see it, if you're gonna build a time machine into a car, why not do it with some style?"
