Like I said, it takes one to know one, and once again, you demonstrate that you know nothing about the filthy rich.
The only childish behavior I see is name calling like "Crapwatch."I saw a tanned, well-dressed person park his white Mercedes SLS AMG gull-wing sports car in front of the Apple Store at The Domain in North Austin, and walk in. I assume you know what the SLS AMG is. So much for your sweeping generalizations about "won't ever see them around popular stores like Apple's."
LOL. That bicycle doesn't go backwards if you back pedal. The wealthy pay for quality, not quantity.
It takes one to know one, and brlawyer knows nothing about how the filthy rich use their time.
To someone who doesn't understand bespoke consumer products that excuse might fly, but forcing consumers to cobble together a 4K solution as a DIY electronics experiment amidst a compatibility minefield is not how it should work.
I have no trouble plugging Apple USB-A cables into MacBook Pro USB ports, because the USB logo always faces "up". But once you start plugging generic black USB-A cables into sideways USB ports on the back of various PCs, not to mention USB hubs which are mounted "flipped" for some no goddamned reason other than laziness of the engineers, the success rate of plugging in USB-A cables correctly on the first try drops to 50%, or less.

Kind of like how HD was originally 1080p, but cable and satellite providers complained about the bandwidth required and the industry redefined HD as 720p and created "Full HD" to describe 1080p.Or how 4G was originally the name for LTE before telecoms started marketing 3G HSPA as "4G" and to prevent confusion, created "4G LTE" to describe 4G based on LTE.
I think it's the difference between Apple and other companies. Apple doesn't score a "features list checkbox victory" by claiming a feature unless it works well. Whereas the Samsungs and the LGs of the world would tout that same half-assed feature in their advertising.In any case, Apple's not "blocking" 60Hz 4K, just not saying it's officially supported.
Super Ultra High Definition?Is that like Super Duper AMOLED?
Another example of the slow, tortured rollout of 4K UHD.
