History repeats itself, OUYA all over again.
You probably can skip this one. No, that’s not a tease to get you to read it!
TiVo Stream is a $129 add-on for your TiVo Premiere. It is a hardware H.264 encoder that gives your TiVo the horsepower to sling live/recorded television to your mobile devices in real time. $129 is not cheap. It’s the cost of a Slingbox (and a higher-end model, at that). You can get an old Slingbox […]
While testing out Windows 8 Media Center, I dusted off this Kworld ATSC-340U tuner that I got for free after mail-in rebate (or something like that). Luckily, I had the retail box, CD, and everything still inside… including an ultra-compact, albeit worthless TV antenna. Anyways, Windows 8 to my surprise failed to find a driver […]
I won’t waste a lot of your time. I penned my last post hours before TiVo re-wrote their Terms of Service, and fundamentally changed how they sell TiVos. There was a brief period where some stores were selling TiVo Premier on the new, contract-driven pricing, but with the old terms and conditions (e.g. being able […]
Please see update at the end of this article… You’ve probably seen these deals from time to time, if you’re a serious bargain sniper online.

I just saw what may be the biggest waste of advertising money, ever. It was a 90 second TV ad for Uncharted 2. The problem? Nearly half the commercial involved people talking… in a silent ad. For those of you not familiar, I coined the term Silent Ads for variants of ads that cut out […]
There has been a lot of buzz about HD and iPhone lately. I’m sure you’ve heard something about that by now. But, let’s take a look at history for a second first, just in case the crowds at Moscone West decide revolt if Apple doesn’t announce iPhone HD at WWDC. When the original iPhone came […]
Scarred and tired, Jack Bauer has been infected by a supervirus and must take on a derelict PMC, hellbent on world domination. Sound familiar? If you’ve played Metal Gear Solid 4, you’ve officially been there and done that. I’ve long talked off-the-blog about 24’s continual ripping off of Metal Gear Solid. People have finally started […]
I haven’t written before on the Hulu vs Boxee battle that is unfolding, and a couple of folks have asked me to chime in. As a reference, while I have used both apps, I don’t use the pairing of Boxee to access Hulu myself. However, the battle being played out over the interoperability (or lack […]
