I recently read a post on FoodBeast in which insider employees spilled the literal and proverbial beans on all disgusting things you should never eat from various restaurants and establishments. One movie-theater worker confessed that employees put all the unused popcorn in garbage bags for use the next day and bugs run rampant on greasy theater floors.
A few weeks ago, we reported on Crestron’s new 4K switching solution, and now Gefen is entering the 4K switching and distribution fray with two new ToolBox Matrix Switchers for HDMI 4Kx2K that will help homeowners and businesses build a 4K infrastructure and shuttle 4K content from display to display.
VIZIO is known for budget-friendly, but higher-than-budget-quality TVs. Today its new E-Series Full-Array LED backlit HDTV line is available at retailers, including Amazon, Best Buy, Costco, Sam’s Club, Target, VIZIO.com, and Walmart.
What if you really wanted to buy an Ultra HD before the technology is fully ready? Well, there’s good news if you do: they’re growing less expensive seemingly by the day. Here’s a roundup of the best prices available.
Just in time for Spring, SunBriteTV is offering a mail-in rebate on its 32-inch Signature Series 32 outdoor LCD TV (SB-3260HD) from now until April 15, a 20% discount.
In ye olden days when everyone watched TV on antenna and analog broadcasting was in virtually every home, no one would begin to think about cutting down on it. In this glorious future world, with under 10% of Americans getting their television over the air, that legacy may be going the way of the dodo, with wireless Internet services breathing down their necks, KJLA and KLCS Los Angeles have volunteered for a bold new experiment. Both channels will exist on the same piece of broadcast spectrum to see if it adversely effects the end – experience.
Qualcomm’s 4k chip, the Snapdragon 802, which the company announced only last month at the Consumer Electronics Show, died with not so much as a whimper as the company quietly announced it’s untimely passing yesterday in a shrug of an announcement on the OnQ blog entitled “Snapdragon 802 Processor Update.” It’s no mistake the announcement was released on Friday, and Valentine’s day no less.
Apple reportedly backed off their iTV platform last year when the company failed to ink deals with content owners to create an app-based cable system that streamed over the Internet. Like Intel, no matter who was making the calls, the networks were simply unwilling to bite the hand that feeds them on risky new ventures.
LG’s 55EA9800 television is down to $7,999, but if you take advantage of this special TV–make that Amazon–offer, you can save $1000 more while supplies last. This TV is a 1080p monster, with 3D, Smart TV features, and pretty much every bell and whistle under the sun. What was formally $11,000 can now be yours for less than half.
In the fourth quarter of 2013, nine percent fewer televisions were shipped in the U.S. than were shipped in the same quarter in 2012. People are quick to blame the forever recovering economy for the decline in TV sales, but there are a couple more relevant factors at play.
There was quite the reaction to my piece on whether 2014 will be the year that cord-cutting becomes viable. Several people told me I was full of it when I said that buying a bunch of shows (like the $40-a-year Mythbusters) off of Amazon or iTunes can break the bank, because they were already dropping $150-$180 a month for their cable needs. But it doesn’t have to be that way. If you put a little elbow grease into it, you can negotiate your rates down with your cable company.
