The Morning After: Are 8K TVs just a waste of time?

Engadget RSS Feed

Hey, good morning! You look fabulous.

One of the best parts of CES is spending some time with the rest of the Engadget team, instead of just chatting in Slack. That means when we have a disagreement, we can go over it in person, like when Devindra is wrong about 8K TVs. He thinks the extra-large high-res screens that dominated CES 2020 are a waste of time and, to be fair, he has a point: There’s almost no native content, no way to deliver that content in most places and the quality difference is arguable.

Of course, he’s also completely wrong, and I explained a bit about why in our combined editorial. 8K TVs are cool, and if I could afford to wallpaper my house with them I’d be doing that right now. There’s no reason to diss new technology simply because it’s too expensive at the moment. I can appreciate that companies are pushing the bleeding edge, even as I stick to more mainstream waters. 4K TVs are a great buy now, and 8K is nice to drool over until it’s realistic — you can do both.

The 2020 Oscar nominations are in, and Netflix has received more than 20 nods. The Irishman and Marriage Story are both up for best picture.

Don’t worry if you missed out on some of the sweeter AirPods deals from the holidays — you can get a solid bargain right now. Amazon is selling Apple’s standard wireless earbuds for $129, or $30 off (and a return to an all-time low price). You won’t get a wireless charging case or the noise cancellation of the AirPods Pro, but you’re also paying relatively little for some iconic audio.

But wait, there’s more…
