It's strange if you think about it. Monitors have become far more advanced than printers.
First there was HD, then 4k, and now there's 8k.
Meanwhile printers are still refusing to print a black and white image when it runs out of yellow ink.

Speaking of monitors, it's a bit silly that we're already up to the 8k gimmick, when the 4k gimmick hasn't even fully played out yet. I'm not even entirely sure if the next generation of consoles will make full use of 4k, let alone 8k. And as far as I can tell, DVD releases of films are still more popular than Blu-Ray releases (probably due to prices), and streaming services usually don't go up to 4k (unless you want a lot of lag).

All I'm saying is that they probably should've waited a little longer. Maybe tried to distract people with another gimmick, like they did we the 3D TVs, those weirdly curved TVs, and of course smart TVs. I'm sure they could've thought of something. Maybe something like a "multi" TV or a "mirror" TV. Be imaginative.
