Amazon Studios is no stranger to pushing the boundaries with superhero shows, having already found success with critically acclaimed adaptations of The Boys and The Tick , two shows that offering unconventional spins on comic-book heroes and villains. The studio’s next foray into that genre is the animated series Invincible , based on the comic of the same name by The Walking Dead co-creator Robert Kirkman and illustrator Cory Walker, and it’s another saga that defies traditional superhero fare.

Bloomberg today reported that a shortage of inexpensive display driver chips has delayed production of the LCD panels used in, well, pretty much every product category you can think of. Displays are ubiquitous, and many devices can't function without them. But for the displays to work, they require a display driver — no, not Nvidia or AMD display drivers, those are software. We're talking about a tiny chip that sends instructions and signals to the display. That's a fairly simple function, at least compared to those performed by the vastly more powerful components inside the device proper, which is why many display drivers cost $1.
