As David said, we're going to see a lot of TVs and other electronics from LG. One thing we probably won't see is mobile phones. Most companies are saving that news for either Mobile World Congress next month or their own events.

I now feel comfortable revealing that we'll have a deeper dive on WebOS, the LG Smart TV interface that is, promptly at 8:45 AM.

Alright. Lights are dimmed. We're starting 6 minutes early.
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:55:22 PM
We're starting with a video. It's showing a soldier returning home, a surfer, and other normal, daily moments.

"Every day in every corner of the world, another amazing opportunity presents itself," the voiceover says.
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:55:50 PM
"To seize the moment, to change a life, to change the world."
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:56:05 PM
And at LG, we're just happy to play some small part in that, the video voiceover says.
David Katzmaier1/6/2014 3:56:24 PM
I gotta say, the video quality on this presentation is terrible. Soft, solarized and pixellated. But hey, it's really wide!

Another video up now, this showing b&W images of Wayne Park, EVP and head of sales and marketing.

At LG, we embrace changes, Park says in the video
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:57:53 PM
With LG, it's all possible, Park says
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:58:11 PM
Customers told us they wanted the benefits of smart technology without the complexity, Park says
David Katzmaier1/6/2014 3:58:27 PM
"Smart and simple" sounds to me like webOS, which just got a name check.
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:58:32 PM
(All still from a video)
David Katzmaier1/6/2014 3:59:02 PM
Yes, we have yet to get a live human on the stage.
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:59:13 PM
John Taylor is now up
Shara Tibken1/6/2014 3:59:42 PM
Want to show how in 2014, with LG it's all possible, Taylor says
