    If you're like most consumers balancing on the edge of merely understanding technology, specifically TV/LCD technology, simple terms such as "3D" and "HDTV" probably contain the vast cope of your knowledge. On that note, all 3D and HDTV's sold in stores are some form of 16:9 or 16:10 with a few 4:3's still hanging on for a tiny shred of attention. That's all groovy and all if you're into "normal" movie watching. For video junkies who really want a piece of the theater inside their house, the...
  • Cool: NBC using 730,000 feet to bring all-HD Olympics to customers. Bad: A paltry 400 hours of live Olympic streams to be available. Answer: NBC = Epic fail.

    The Olympics are a grand time for many people and groups all over the world. It's a time for said groups to represent their country on the world stage, proving that they are just a cut above the rest. For decades, watching the Olympics meant catching time in between your busy life schedule to sit down and enjoy the (tape delayed) games. And then there was the VCR. Recording the not only the Olympics but TV in general was a huge revolution, as now people didn't have to babysit their TV. Then...

    Is 3D going to be the "next big thing" as far as TV tech is concerned or is it more of a passing fad? I'm kind of leaning towards fad. Make no mistake, the 3D movies I've seen in theaters are pretty tight. The TV's at CES were pretty impressive themselves. Though because of the obvious differences between a projector situated behind you, displaying a picture in front of you and a TV positioned in front of you, displaying an image in a very different manner, pros and cons of each method becom...

    Take any mind blowing, wallet raping, eye melting gaming rig or big screen you can think of and throw it out of your mind. AMD's up and coming new hotness, graphics cards packin' the DirectX11 moniker have some truly impressive muscle under the hood. How much muscle? Well, lets start with the fact that the new cards will support Display Port technology allowing you to daisy chain monitor after monitor via USB. Even better is that the new DX11 AMD cards also support running said daisy chain...

    It wasn't that long ago that two electronics giants were duking it out for your dollar and world wide supremacy. The battle between Sony (Blue-ray) and Toshiba (HD-DVD) was fought out for many months in retail stores and estores across the world. In the end, Sony and Blue-ray won out. Naturally Toshiba was just a tad sour with their loss and initially announced that they had no plans to support Blue-ray. Though the good 'ol boys in red are finally coming around to the Blue side. As they ann...

      Take a stroll to your local electronics store and look at the back of a high end monitor or TV.  What do you see?  You'll see every type of connection known to man kind and multiple's of some of them.  One would ask, "How did we get to the point where we have so many connections?".  It's manufacturers thinking that they have the next latest and greatest, or best solution for the industry.  Naturally not everyone sees eye to eye and someone else or some other group release their own ...

  • DTV does not mean HDTV!

    Posted January 4th, 2009 at 8:25 pm
    I just finished watching an entertaining article on WNIT a local channel in my little town in Indiana.  The premise of the show was the digital TV switch over coming in February.  The show, along with many people are sadly confused when it comes to technology and what really is going on.  For example on the show they were interchanging the words Digital TV and HDTV as if they were the same thing.  In reality they're not!  Digital TV just describes the method of which the signal is sen...
