    Why Vizio TVs had been cheap
    • Vizio has been collecting some fairly personal data. The company’s TVs are able to track what you watch on a second-by-second basis, whether you’re watching cable, playing a Blu-ray, or streaming a movie, according to the FTC.

      That data is then paired with demographic details on you. That includes “sex, age, income, marital status, household size, education, home ownership, and household value.” The information is then sold to analytics and ad companies and used to target advertisements to you. This is something Vizio has been excited about: the data service, branded Inscape, was a key piece of the company’s IPO pitch to investors.

      And, of course, accidently it become known only after it was sold to Chinese company.

      And if we include best years it looks even worse

    Lab: Black Body, Sun and Atmosphere
    • If you read any color quality metrics standard you will see interesting part most treat as not very important.
      At certain color temperature they switch (instantly or smooth, not so important) one standard illuminant (black body, or tungsten lamp spectrum) to another - sun spectrum (during middle of non cloudy day and at sea level, actually it is math approximation).
      Almost all difference actually is only black body (radiating thing) temperature and atmosphere filtering effects.

    Dual Pixel is the future - Qualcomm
    • Who among us hasn’t missed that all-important shot because autofocus didn’t work fast enough or wasn’t capable enough? This was a priority for engineers as they developed the Snapdragon 835. The goal: Build a truly effective autofocus and help shutterbugs capture even the fastest moving moments.

      The result is the groundbreaking Dual Photodiode (2PD), an autofocus mechanism designed to use paired photodiodes on every pixel. While most modern camera phones use photodiode autofocus, Qualcomm Technologies supports granularity at the pixel level rather than at only having them at a fraction of the total diodes. This means that every single pixel is now capable of phase detection and image capture, making autofocus lightning fast and effective.

      So, not only Samsung start to use sensors with DP design.
