The Vizio V655-J09 features 3840-by-2160 resolution and it supports a variety of high dynamic range formats including Dolby Vision, HDR10, HDR10+, and HLG.

  • Microsoft has said previously that it plans to issue feature updates to Windows 11 once per year, in the fall. But the company said Wednesday that it plans to issue a “public preview” of Android apps running on Windows, among other features, next month, to Windows 11 users. In other words, Windows 11 is receiving its first real update. Microsoft’s announcement came at the end of a Wednesday blog post authored by Panos Panay, chief product officer of Windows + Devices at Microsoft. The blog post reiterated many of the claims made by chief executive Satya Nadella […]
  • While Intel recorded record revenue for the fourth quarter of 2021, Intel chief executive Pat Gelsinger said that chip shortages will persist throughout 2022 and into next year. “Looking across the industry, 2021 was dominated by two recurring themes, unprecedented demand, and ecosystem supply constraints,” Gelsinger said.
