05 Jan: CES 2017: This Year’s Hottest Tech Trends

For the past 50 years, CES has been where the consumer electronics industry has gathered to see all of the latest tech innovations before they’re available to customers.

In recent years, product manufacturers have showcased 4K Ultra HD TVs, virtual reality, smart home devices and wearables at the trade show. Going back further, the show served as a launch pad for the VCR (1970), camcorder (1981), CD player (1981), DVD (1996), HDTV (1998) and DVR (1998).

So what’s this year’s can’t-miss, gotta-see-it-to-believe-it, breakout technology?

04 Jan: See the Wallpaper-Thin LG OLED TV at Select Best Buy Stores

Last year at CES, LG grabbed headlines with a product prototype that looked more like something you’d find in a sci-fi movie than in your living room — a TV that was literally as thin as wallpaper.

One year later, it’s becoming a reality. The wallpaper-thin LG Signature OLED W is about to hit the market, but customers can get a sneak peek of it at Magnolia locations inside seven Best Buy stores starting tomorrow.

To see the TV that’s 2.5-millimeters thick — thinner than a standard yoga mat — in person, visit Magnoliaav.com
