Today, we are excited to announce the release of the GXP Gadgeteer Bridge. The GXP (general expansion port) Gadgeteer Bridge allows any Gadgeteer display to be used with the FEZ Cobra III.
The GXP (general expansion port) is a new defined standard created by GHI Electronics that allows everyone to create custom display boards with a standardized connection. This standardized connection is a 40 pin 0.1" header.
Myth. Betamax was not superior to VHS in the only way that mattered…recording length. People didn’t give a crap about video quality when it meant they couldn’t record a full-length movie off the TV.
Funny how things don’t change. Turns out that people largely don’t give a crap about 4K, or at least not enough to buy new and expensive TVs for it, just like they didn’t give a crap about 3D, or at least not enough to buy new and expensive TVs (and glasses) for it.
Don’t get me wrong. I love watching movies on a big screen. But myths about “market failures” like VHS vs. BetaMax are really more about companies misunderstanding what their customers actually want from a product.
I don’t know about that one. 4K is one of those things that when I first saw I said “I HAVE to get one of those!” Unfortunately for me and probably a lot of other people, it hasn’t been that long since I bought my 55" LCD TV and I’m not quite ready to say I’ve gotten my value out of it yet. If I were buying a TV, I wouldn’t look at anything less than a 4K.
