I've worked with some doctors in the past who have sworn by it but I haven't ever used it.

Research from web analytics company StatCounter found Android now accounts for a larger share of internet usage than Windows for the first time. During March 2017, Android users represented 37.93 percent of activity on StatCounter’s network versus 37.91 percent for the Microsoft operating system. It’s a small gap for sure — and it refers to usage not necessary users — but it marks a notable tipping point that has been inevitable for the past couple of years.

Lots of good info there. Local Dimming is the one thing that I really looked for when I was shopping for mine.

the last 2 TVs I have purchased are both Vizios, and I've been happy with both. my 4k is the m-series, and I got that about 18 months ago for a little under $750. I lost an hdmi port a few months ago, but I had 5 of them and only use 2 so it's not a huge deal to me. no other issues whatsoever. a friend of mine got an LG right before I got my 4k and he likes mine better, mostly because he paid about $300 more but he also claims my picture quality is better

if I were to buy another, I'd check amazon for 2016 models and try to save a little on a possibly nicer model than what's in the store now

Trust me, it's dead. You'll catch up soon enough. It's the "photo not found" error even thought Photobucket is up and working fine otherwise.

Because they're usually amusing, it's a quick way to see who posted what, and it's nice way to break up the posts from all looking like they're from the same person.

Also: it's 2017 and computers and phones handle things like pictures just fine.

I guess. I don't really care to differentiate between all of the wackos here.
