It’s an 84 inch 4k Television!  4k basically means that the TV has 4 times the clarity of the current high def TV that you own now, according to  Here’s what it looks like
Sony, according to PC World has not released the TV yet, and when they do it will come in 55 and 65 inch models  They actually should call it a 25k machine, because that’s what it would cost — and more!  Visio is also coming out a similar product called the Ultra HD 4k’s, and they WILL be out this year in 55, 60 and 70 inch models.  They also have apps that you an download on to the TV and more!

Question from Nicole-  How did the internet get started and who started it?


The internet began with the development of electronic computers in the 1950s. The public was first introduced to the internet when a message was sent from computer science Professor Leonard Kleinrock’s at UCLA after the second piece of network equipment was installed at Stanford Research Institute. This connection not only enabled the first transmission to be made, but is also considered to be the first internet backbone.

In 1982, the Internet protocol suite was standardized and the concept of a world-wide network of fully interconnected TCP/IP networks called the Internet was introduced. Commercial Internet Service Providers began to emerge in the late 1980s and early 1990s. The Internet was commercialized in 1995.
