Cord cutters rejoice! AMC is now available on Dish Network’s $20 per month Sling TV service. That means that you’ll be able to catch new episodes of hit shows like Better Call Saul and The Walking Dead; not to mention the second half of the final season of Mad Men starting in April and numerous Breaking Bad marathons. In addition to AMC, IFC also comes to Sling TV’s $20 “Core” package starting today. This adds some robustness to a channel lineup that already includes ESPN, ESPN2, TNT, TBS, ABC Family, CNN, and Food Network. Hollywood Extra, a new $5 add-on package, has also been announced that...

AMC Networks, which owns and operates AMC, IFC, Sundance Channel, WE tv and IFC Films, has just launched a new service that couldn't possibly be more fun to say. It's called YEAH! No, really -- it's called YEAH. It's being described as the first "streaming movie service that is an entirely new way to watch movies online." That sounds mighty vague, but it essentially gives each YEAH film "interactive features including 400-500 individual pieces of original content curated from in-depth research." The new bonus content is displayed on-screen seamlessly, making it a bit like VH1's Pop-Up Video, but... Read more...
As a company who plans on relying on other companies to make a program work, there are usually a few necessary steps to take before telling the public about your scheduled program. The first of which would involve clearing your ideas with your partner companies. It'd pretty looney to expect partner companies to just go along with whatever you publish before you even check with them, but evidently that is exactly what MoviePass did last week. There was a report suggesting that an all-you-can-watch theater program was going to start in San Francisco, but now it appears that MoviePass didn't even... Read more...
Can't say it's surprising, but theater owners are getting ready for a battle when it comes to Video-on-Demand. For years now, movie theaters, movie makers, and DVD resellers have been growing increasingly wary over VoD. Why? Because the window of time between a cinema release and a VoD release has been shrinking, and all the while, movie ticket prices have been skyrocketing. It's nothing to spend over $15 per movie ticket in a major city these days, which is comical when you think that these tickets were far, far cheaper just a decade ago. What's changed? Technology, and instead of embracing it,... Read more...

There should be no doubt as to whether the engineers at HP dream in black-and-white or in color. The question should be: How many colors do they dream in? The answer: over one billion. That's how many colors HP's new DreamColor LP2480ZX LCD is capable of displaying: "The HP DreamColor Display features a new liquid crystal display (LCD) that provides a range of more than 1 billion colors in a 30-bit, LED-backlit display. The display is now shipping worldwide for a U.S. list price of $3,499."Three and a half grand might seem pretty steep for a display, but for a number of professional-level, color-accurate-critical...

Pure Digital came out of nowhere last year with one of the hottest consumer electronics devices on the market. Their compact Flip Camcorder cost just $149,  had four buttons and a hatch for a couple of alkaline batteries, took pretty good quality video, and plugged right into your USB port to download the video bits of your life. Simple, easy, fun, and inexpensive quickly added up to almost a million units sold, and an instant 20 percent market share. They even let you upload your video direct to YouTube with the software interface included. Pure Digital isn't resting on its success, though;... Read more...
SteamCast Networks, creator of the Morpheus file-swapping software, has filed a lawsuit naming Kazaa, Skype Technologies and its founders Niklas Zennstrom and Janus Friis, among others, as defendants.

I just got around to reading the recent news about Abit that Jeff has posted... very interesting. On the lighter side of things, we have some motherboard reviews, a digital camcorder review, plus a few other reviews that might help you decide what to get for the holiday.
