South Korean TV brands’ panel purchasing volume is forecast to decline a little to 17.3 million units in the second quarter of 2019, down 3% from the previous quarter or 1% from a year ago.

That is not where we should be and if in the future we want to change this we need both a more powerful goal and a plan to reach it. Our failure to commit to that course here is disappointing. I regretfully dissent.” – Karl Bode, MOTHERBOARD https://ift.tt/2vBGGjl
