Fox News, giant tablets, display resolution, it's quite spectacular how little there is to care about in this story, and how little relation it has to anything Apple.

"Most bizarrely, Fox's video portrayed its "journalists" on stage in front of massive displays devoted to showing just four different tweets. At a maximum of 140 characters each, that's no more than 560 bytes of actual information per $7,000 screen. The standard Twitter client for iPhone packs more than that on a compact 4" display."
Are you kidding me? Watch out. Your anti-fox bias is showing. This has to be the stupidest articles I've ever read on this site - one of my favorite and most visited websites. Do you REALLY think the reason there are only 4 tweets on the screen is because Fox's people are too dumb to use the space more efficiently? Every screen in that room that will be showing information to viewers will have the text large enough for the audience to read it.
I'm disappointed, Daniel
Fox "News" is now able to manipulate the "news" with 10 new screens!

I see your point but is it really good use of technology and way for viewers to obtain info that you place in the background various angled displays partially obscured by people sitting in front of them that viewers need to read? Wouldn't an onscreen ticker be much more effective for this? The whole concept is weak. Even if this were a SyFy movie of the week it would be a lame use of the tech budget.
Don't weather men use screens behind them by just stepping to the side? I would imagine they would try to use them the same way.
This looks fucking hilarious. Fox news is the shittiest news organization on the planet, and will remain so, no matter how many house-sized tablets they use. Their quality and objectivity is garbage, there's empirical evidence that those that watch Fox News are massively more misinformed about basic facts than those that don't, and no amount of technology will change that.
I know these flat screens are not the same...
My GF is a teacher and they have windows based flat-screens in all the classrooms. The teachers hate them. They're always freezing and the you have to drill down thru the clunky interface to do most common tasks. Typical windows crap. She says most teachers don't even use them.
She said they should have bought iPads instead.
P.S. I think we all would be better off not watching Fox News or MSNBC. They are both crap!
So this is article-worthy why? Every television has fewer pixels than an iPad. What’s the point of mentioning that?
I’ll go on record saying that these screens are too big, though. Give me no larger than 42” 16:10 for my desktop computer with OS XI. I could reach bigger, of course, but why should I have to stretch that far?
