Sharp sold their TV plant and the right to use the Sharp name on products produced for the Americas except Brazil to a Chinese company in 2012. By 2019 Sharp was suing that company for ruining their good name by selling junk TVs that failed early. 

Name and shame that bloody company. It's Hisense.

That's because all they know how to do is follow others and study for the center or university exams.

True. My wife a teacher at a high school. She said for a fact that none of them even care to know the name of even the current prime minister.

While all the voting choices in front of me are disappointingly terrible, Give me 6 minutes of Kanna Hashimoto asking the younger generation to vote and then, I might... consider about casting my vote. She's the only celeb i'm willing to listen to in that bunch.

The LG Oleds outperform Panasonics when it comes to input delay, and are better for gaming purposes.

Input delay is a HUGE gimmick term LG uses for it's marketing. Human eyes won't be able to tell the difference between 12ms and 2ms input lag at all. anything below 15ms is considered to be Ultra low input lag and that's the limit of our eyes.

Panasonic buys their panels from LG. As do all the consumer Oled manufacturers as LG owns the key patent for affordable Oled panels.

True. but Panasonic and Sony twerk it. Panasonic and Sony offer significantly more brightness as they are way better at managing thermals and Sony Oleds don't have speakers while LG comes with front facing speakers. Sony uses the OLED screen panel(the back panel vibrates thus producing sound) as a speaker and Guess what, Sony's speaker less OLEDTV's sounds way better than an LG TV which has speakers.

Panasonic Oled sales are dwarfed by LG sales. This is for the simple reason that LG can offer significant better value, even in the high end consumer segment.

Panasonic is doing okay in the markets it's present in but that's not the reason behind higher sales. After the 2011 disaster, Panasonic had to exit many markets and is forced to restructure after it faced astronomical losses of 11 billion dollars in total. Panasonic's restructuring isn't complete yet. Panasonic won't be planning to compete with LG atleast until it's complete.

At this time Panasonic Oleds only offers added value for those using their panels for professional reference monitors or a group of cinema purists.

Well, you can say that Panasonic is doing good in the category LG can't compete in/ doesn't have tech expertise to compete in.

LG owns the key patent for affordable Oled panels.

Those patents originally belonged to Sony and Philips. LG display IPS display manufacturing patents belong to Hitachi. LG and Samsung stole them in the name of partnership when Things went downhill for Japanese companies. Anyway. Printing OLED Technology is the future and Japanese companies have now have most of the necessary patents in that technology.

I see no reason for Sony to Exit USA when it's market share is increasing. Not only that, by 2023, Sony's expected to make 78% opm for every TV sold in USA.

Panasonic and Sony have got a strong following in the professional Displays market. Hollywood uses only Panasonic and Sony displays because of their extremely high colour accuracy and Ease of usage. I'm a sony user and Panasonic is atleast 3 years ahead of LG technology wise. All the fuss about Oled brightness made by LG this year with the so called EVO thing in their marketing campaign, Panasonic's 2018 oleds are way brighter and colour accurate then LG's this year's models even with old oled panels.

@samit basu

The number of Covid tests increased to 170,000 a day in mid-August, when 20,000 new daily cases were found. Recently, the number of tests decreased to 30,000 to 60,000 a day, except for the weekend. The number of tests has certainly decreased, but in Tokyo, the positive testing rate, which soared to 24 percent in mid-August, dropped to 1.8 percent on October 5. The positive result rate per test dropped too dramatically to say that “positive cases decreased because people don’t get tested enough.”

FYI, COVID test is no longer free in Japan, you have to pay 20,000 yen out of pocket to get it.

That's the reason for COVID positivity fall.

Never has been free right? unless you get one by doctor's recommendation.

Posted in: 'Squid Game': South Korea's latest cultural phenomenon See in context

Japanese drama's need better actors and actresses. A lot of them just overdo their acting and that just kills the immersion, even if the story and production quality is great. At least in my opinion.

Naah, nothing bad about actors here. Best Japanese actors are on part with best western and other asian actors. The problem. I attend a lot of film festivals so, i'm aware of both the good and bad sides of the industry. The Problem is Budget.

Japan's strength is its anime industry but anime is just so oversaturated. There are like 200 or more releases every year and the overwhelming majority of them are garbage. Quantity over quality. Not to mention the slave like work conditions that animators have to deal with. Even as the industry grows its is slowly destroying itself from within.

Most of it isn't Garbage. Few are garbage. most of them are mediocre(just for timepass like those cringy romance kdramas) but let's not forget that every year we get to see more than 30 Excellent anime an year. The anime fandom cares about those 30 and there are well maintained and run(fan made) online discuss forums on which help the fandom on what to watch and what not to. but yaa, there are way too many studios which run wild here and that's kinda bad from a long term perspective.

So, it's very easy to market anime or Pokemon compared to more complicated stories like Nobody Knows or Battle Royale.

I'm sorry but Anime is filled way more complicated stories way better than Nobody Knows and Battle Royale if you aren't aware.

@Grant

no, it isn't a Battle Royale copy. it's similar but in battle royale but it's more a copy of Kaiji, Liar game and As the gods will.

The initial 4-5 episodes of squid games is almost entirely Kaiji, the episode 6 red light green light game is a Shot to Shot copy of Daruma game from As the gods will, the last episodes didn't matter anyway cause they were bad.

@NAM

Try watching Alice in Borderland (netflix original released last year).

Japan ranks around the middle of Asian nations in terms of Covid death rate per capita. There is ZERO evidence to suggest they resist the virus "better than anywhere on earth".

Ranks in the middle while having the oldest population in the entire world huh? Not bad Japan. Not bad at all.

Topspeed and thedrive are just as good in Auto Journalism as IGN and Polygon in videogames.

While the current Z is inspired from the previous generation Z, A lot of changes have been made to the previous platform for the current Z which makes it almost an entirely new platform. The engine part, using the same engines as infinity Q 60 Red sport doesn't mean that it's recycled.
