Sony Bravia KD-849005 4K Television Preview

Throwing—nay, laboriously dragging this 84 inch jumbotron into the 4K ring, Sony has shown us the future. With a screen resolution equivalent to four 1080p televisions put together, this Steinway-sized TV is quite the conversation piece. Unfortunately, its $31,450 price tag and lack of content in 4K will keep it out of most stores and homes for now. But on the bright side, YouTube does offer streams in 4K, so you can see every whisker in any cat video—provided someone filmed them with a RedOne camera.

Move Over, Stainless: New Appliance Finishes at IFA 2012

The stainless-steel kitchen has turned into one very shiny cliché over the past 10 years. We attended the IFA conference in Berlin last week and found European companies like Haier and Bosch taking up arms in the struggle to re-introduce color into modern kitchens around the world. We found the shockingly durable glass and granite finishes most impressive, combining the strengths of steel without the cons of specialized cleaning, rust, and the visual sterility of a mortuary.

Skullcandy Aviator Headphone Review

If you insist on listening to music after (or during) a gnarly day on the slopes, these musical earmuffs might appeal to you. With a high maximum volume and decent tracking, these over-ear headphones can ensure your solipsism while deconstructing exactly how extreme you were out on the hill. Clearly these headphones aren't for everyone, but for someone willing to shell out extra dough for non-vanilla studio headphones, these beasts beat the Monster Beats in construction and sound.

Top TVs for Football Season

Kick off has come and gone, as the Cowboys took down the Giants in beautiful New Jersey. So if you've indulged in an NFL Sunday Ticket, you might be interested in upgrading your window to the gridiron. Not all of these "windows" are created equally, but fortunately our extensive experience reviewing televisions has allowed us to recommend a handful of TVs with the best motion performance, viewing angle, size, and self-esteem to withstand even the most aggressive yelling.
