LG's first 48-inch 4K HDR OLED TV will be available soon, with "key markets" in Europe and Asia getting the set from June.
That is thought to include the UK, with the LG OLED 48CX expected to be available through the usual retailers.
Not only does its size suit a games-playing environment, it is Nvidia G-Sync compatible and sports a 120Hz refresh rate for 4K content.
As well as its gaming prowess, the CX includes many of the standards and formats needed in a modern TV.
"LG is again pushing the innovation envelope by bringing the ultimate picture to a TV screen size that is much more approachable," said LG's president of its home entertainment division, Park Hyoung-sei.

Whether for the low-key style that makes them look less like specialist sportswear and more like a street shoe, or for the posture-enhancing comfort, who can say — the beauty of a spikeless golf shoe is that it offers both.
With all the casual good looks of a leather trainer and the performance of a golf shoe, it offers the best of both worlds: the TPU outsole gives great traction, the nubuck upper is comfortable and durable, and overall, it’s a great investment if you don’t want to shell out for one-use shoes for occasional play.
Why, on to the following handy list of the best spikeless golf shoes, of course… In a choice of smart-looking colourways, the modern FootJoy Pro/SL is a stylish shoe indeed, but its real star factor lies in its stability.
The best spikeless golf shoe is as good, in suitable conditions, as a cleated or spiked shoe.
If your feet tend to get tired soon into your practice, these are a great buy, with their breathable waterproof construction (the ‘Sofrina SK upper’ here is the secret to the shoes’ lack of heft) and impact grip system, ensuring stability throughout your swing and a solid, shock-absorbing base.
To turn around the brand, which was in Chapter 11 bankruptcy for the second time, CEO James Rhee set out to build an ecosystem for Ashley Stewart’s core, fiercely loyal shopper.
‘A gigantic metaphor’ When Rhee took over Ashley Stewart in 2013, he inherited a business that struggled to raise capital and had been marginalized from the larger retail world, what he saw as a “gigantic metaphor” for how black women are invisible and “undervalued” in the consumer economy, he said.
— Ashley Stewart ‘A third place’ that boldly fetes full-figured women Like Starbucks, which famously positioned its coffee bars as consumers’ “third place” after their homes and workplace, and Apple’s “store of the community,” “what’s so powerful about the Ashley Stewart story is the community of women that bond at these stores and can be themselves,” said Marie Driscoll, managing director of luxury and fashion at Coresight Research, a global research and advisory firm specializing in retail and technology.
Ashley Stewart’s highly penetrated and profitable online business — a relative anomaly among legacy retail chains, Rhee said, has also helped gird the brand during the current crisis as stores went dark.
Rhee doesn’t think of Ashley Stewart as a retailer, but rather a “movement” that celebrates African American women.

I am a particular fan of the title of this game, because it sounds like Holmes himself is the daughter in question.
Despite that, Sherlock Holmes: The Devil’s Daughter is a thoroughly enjoyable entry in Frogwares’ saga of third-person detect ’em ups, notable for having good detecting elements, and also never having a version of Sherlock I wouldn’t go to bed with.
Look at ’em both up there, Holmes in his shirtsleeves and Watson with his fashion facial hair.
But the standalone cases are lovely little investigative gems (excluding, perhaps, the one where Holmes imaginates his way through what happened at a temple he has never been to based on looking at a small model of it in a bowls pavilion, or something).
Bits like that don’t happen loads throughout the whole game, sadly, but if you’re a Holmes fan I think this is probably the best of Frogwares’ adaptations.
It's the same process that Novavax used to create a nanoparticle flu vaccine that recently passed late-stage testing.
"The way we make a vaccine is we never touch the virus," Novavax told The Associated Press last month.
Still other vaccine candidates are more old-fashioned, made with dead, whole virus.
Most of the experimental vaccines in progress aim to train the immune system to recognize the "spike" protein that studs the coronavirus' outer surface, priming the body to react if it was exposed to the real virus.
"We are in parallel making doses, making vaccine in anticipation that we'll be able to show it's working and be able to start deploying it by the end of this year," Glenn told a virtual news conference in Melbourne from Novavax' headquarters in Maryland.
Outdoor equipment maker Helinox has been staying busy over the past couple of months to gear you up for the camping season, first working with NEIGHBORHOOD on a camping collection, followed by Tacoma Fuji Records and BEAMS T for a more fashion-oriented capsule.
Now, the Australian company has found its third collaborator in Filson, creating a Tactical Collection together featuring three of Helinox’s trusted items re-created using the American staple brand’s famed materials.
The first of the three is the iconic Sunset Chair, hailed as one of Helinox’s most comfortable models in its seating line thanks to its higher ground clearance and higher back support, together offering a more relaxed seating position.
Finally, rounding off the collection is the Table One Hardtop, a compact yet sturdy table whether you’re going camping or just heading out for a picnic.
For those gearing up for the camping season, the Filson x Helinox Tactical Collection is now available over on Filson and Helinox‘s websites.
While it's a valid question, having a large reflective real estate makes the Galaxy Z Flip look classy and 'in vogue'; a person holding it will not just possess a tech product, but a product of fashion.
Since many were concerned of the phone's durability over prolonged usage, here's what I found after 100 days with the Galaxy Z Flip as my daily driver, right after this quick video overview by my editor:- When the Z Flip is in 'standby mode', that is in folded form, it feels very snug in the palm (just 73.6 x 87.4mm folded), even if it is thick (17.3mm on the fattest side).
While Fold's concept was a phone-to-tablet foldable, the Galaxy Z Flip takes on the old-school flip phone paradigm.
This year, alongside the traditional Galaxy S series line-up with the S20 troupe, Samsung also released another foldable phone, the Galaxy Z Flip.
One interesting thing about Z Flip is that its fingerprint scanner is located on the power button (just like the Galaxy S10e).
Now, take this all with a grain of salt, but according to Stephens financial analysist Jeff Cohen, keeping track of Take-Two’s advertising plans has yielded results in the past… We are not sure how much we should be reading into this shift, but we would note that this disclosure accurately predicted the launch of Red Dead Redemption 2 prior to that game’s announcement.
[Updated] GTA V NaturalVision Evolved Comparison Video Shows How Impressive This Mod Really Is Interestingly, Take-Two previously said they were planning to increase their advertising spending in FY2023, indicating GTA 6 may have been pushed back a year.
The most likely reason for such a major boost in advertising would be the release of a really big game, like, say, Grand Theft Auto 6.
According to the latest 10-K SEC filing of Rockstar parent company Take-Two Interactive, the company is planning a major increase in advertising in fiscal year 2024 (which runs from April 2023 until the end of March 2024).
Per recent rumors from Kotaku, GTA 6 is indeed Rockstar’s “next big project” and the game may be moderately-sized at launch so it can be released in a timely fashion (although we’ve also heard the exact opposite regarding size).

The video shows the Reddit user first carving out the body of the mouse from a chunk of wood and sanding it down into shape, and then getting to work hollowing it out for the internal components to fit inside.
If so, then you were probably thinking along the same lines as Reddit user letitbesb, who made a working mouse out of wood.
There should be no problem with keeping your best gaming mouse’s super-accurate sensor.
Following this, the button plate and bottom plate are fashioned and fixed to the mouse body, along with fittings for the internal circuitry.
There might not be many of you that have access to the tools required to make a homemade wooden mouse, but for those of you that do this video can serve as great inspiration.

Look at the Delft Stool and Table and its source of inspiration becomes immediately clear.
Influenced by the world of pottery, the Delft Stool and Table look like artifacts from the Ming dynasty, with a ceramic top and three legs supporting the stool and table’s unusually pretty design.
The intricate and detailed design of Oriental crockery can often add a culturally artifactual appeal to a kitchen.
The Delft takes that appeal and amplifies it in a way that immediately makes the stool and table appear as modern-day relics.
They even come with the indigo artwork that so distinctly belongs to the world of Chinese pottery that you tend to question the design as your mind makes that association – but after it does, you just can’t stop admiring the furniture’s strong heritage!
Special notebook paper can be re-usable while accompanying smart pens combine with the paper to transmit your notes for safekeeping.
Meanwhile, your handwritten notes get sent to the Cloud and transferred to digital form to the Rocketbook Wave app and its cloud services.
But unlike Moleskine’s previous smart writing set, your pen doesn’t need to be connected to the app at all times; you can simply jot down notes and sync your pen with the app at a later time — great for those times you can’t connect to your phone, like in a meeting.
It comes with a paper notebook and digital smart pen, USB recharging cable, one pen-tip ink refill, and a manual.
Smart notebooks are a hybrid product — part digital, part analog — designed for people who like to put pen to paper the old fashioned way but seek to save their writings, jottings, scribblings, doodlings, and notes in a decidedly newfangled way to the cloud.
J.K. Rowling will stagger the release of her new children’s novel The Ickabog over the next seven weeks, publishing the book in tiny chapters online and making it available to readers for free.
Rowling is hosting The Ickabog on a new website with anywhere from “a chapter (or two, or three)” being published at a time, according to Rowling’s note.
The Ickabog seemingly came into existence in typical Rowling fashion: she came up with the idea “a long time ago and read it to my two younger children chapter by chapter each night while I was working on it.”
When the time came to publish The Ickabog, Rowling decided to “put out a book for adults instead, which is how The Ickabog ended up in the attic.”
After The Ickabog’s initial run online, Scholastic will publish it in traditional formats, including as a book, ebook, and audiobook.

“We today summoned a relevant person with regard to Samsung Group’s illegal merger and accounting fraud case,” an official at the Seoul Central District Prosecutors’ office told Reuters.
Cheil, Samsung Group’s fashion and theme-park operator, merged with de fact group holding company Samsung CT in a 2015 transaction that enabled Lee to become the top shareholder of Samsung CT.

SEOUL (Reuters) - Samsung Group heir Jay Y. Lee was questioned on Tuesday by prosecutors about a controversial 2015 merger and alleged accounting fraud that they said may have helped him advance his succession-planning agenda at the country’s top conglomerate.
A spokesman at Samsung Electronics, the conglomerate’s biggest company where Lee is vice chairman, declined to comment.
