Wait a Minute.
There Is No REAL Ultra HD CONTENT to See
on that Beautiful Screen.
Just Like the PUSH to 3D, ULTRA has an
Enormous Hill in Front of it --- MEDIA Content
Whether you've decided to spend the day battling bargain hunters for an insanely low-priced wafflemaker or just chillin' by the warm glow of your computer screen watching the mayhem unfold, we've got a little surprise for you. We've managed to snag a brand new Sony 55-inch 4K Ultra HD TV and we're giving it away to one lucky Engadget reader.
Yeah, It's Worth a Shot.
So what's the Real problem with Ultra HD TV Content?

Why the Move to Broadcast 4K TV Is Going To Be SO TOUGH
Gionee Elife E7 Boasts Most Sensitive
Gionee isn't exactly a name that you'd come across in the Western market every day, but this time, the Chinese company has big global ambitions.
The latest proof is its Elife E7, a 5.5-inch 1080p Android phone that boasts two titles: it's the first known phone featuring the 2.5GHz flavor of Qualcomm's Snapdragon 800 chip
(MSM8974AC); plus it has the most sensitive 16-megapixel camera, courtesy of its Largan M8 lens (though the aperture is still unknown) and 1/2.3-inch sensor with large 1.34µm pixels. Compared to the competition, Gionee believes this particular
OmniVision sensor has the best balance between resolution and pixel size, and the phone maker even went as far as claiming this already beats the 1.12µm, 16-megapixel counterpart on the yet-to-be-announced Galaxy S 5.
Liquid Metal Printer Lays Electronic Circuits
on Paper, Plastic, and Even Cotton
One of the dreams of makers the world over is to be able to print electronic circuits on more or less any surface using a desktop printer. The great promise is the possibility of having RFID circuits printed on plastic or paper packaging, LED arrays on wallpaper and even transparent circuits on glass. Or simply to rapidly prototype circuits when designing new products.
Until now. Today, Jing Liu and pals at the Technical Institute of Physics and Chemistry in Beijing say they’ve worked out how to print electronic circuits on a wide range of materials using an inkjet printer filled with liquid metal. And they’ve demonstrated
the technique on paper, plastic, glass, rubber, cotton cloth and even an ordinary leaf.
