LG to show off 88-inch 8K OLED TV at CES

LG was apparently far too excited about its latest creation to wait another week to unveil it, so the company's display arm on Monday unveiled the most impressive display panel the world has ever seen - on paper at least. It could be the ultimate TV - if you can find anything to watch.

First supermoon of 2018 falls on New Year's Day

Nature lovers will have their fill of celestial treats in January with two supermoons, a blue moon and a total lunar eclipse gracing the night sky. Because the moon is rising right about the time the sun is setting, it likely won't be as spectacular as a supermoon coming up in a fully dark sky, but you still won't want to miss the show.
