Much to the chagrin of every major TV network out there, Netflix continues to rise at a solid rate and eat into its wary competition. According to research conducted by Michael Nathanson, of MoffettNathanson, cable TV viewing dropped 3% in 2015, and half of that is directly attributed to Netflix. It's being predicted...

It seems as though no government agency is immune from hackers these days, with the latest victim being NASA. AnonSec has claimed responsibility for infiltrating NASAs secure internal network to gain access to a treasure trove of data (including the personal information of a few thousand NASA employees). AnonSec... Read more...
I may not be a smart man, but I know what science is. There is no doubt that the Earth is round its a fact that weve known for centuries. But that hasnt stopped some science-averse people from challenging that idea over the years. The latest is rapper B.o.B, who, as it appears, is a few cards short of a full... Read more...
Wouldn't it be rad (yes, I said rad) if James Lipton was always on call to provide a dramatic reading of a novel? I'd also be delighted to sit back and listen to James Earl Jones narrate a grisly tale, or Morgan Freeman read just about anything, even a telephone book. Perhaps they'd be willing for the right amount of coin, but in lieu of what's Read more...
As we wind down 2015, it's not hard to see some trends arise when looking back at the months leading us up to this point. Right from the get-go, an obvious trend with the biggest companies out there has been the adoption of machine-learning techniques. While machine-learning isn't new, it's now being treated as...

We talked just yesterday about the various configurations that exist for Microsoft's Surface Book, including the mammoth $3,199 model that boasts 1TB of solid-state storage. Despite all we know about these offerings, though, there are some details both Microsoft and its component vendors are keeping mum on. Such as... Read more...
Welcome to the Windows 10 desktop! This marks the end of the upgrade process right? Well, almost. If you are a privacy-minded type, you probably have a few settings to disable, but finalizing the upgrade does not end there either, if you value your storage space. Let's look at some strategies to tidy up the file bloat... Read more...
It's been rumored for what seems like forever, and soon, it could become true: Apple's looking to get into the original programming business. While it might seem a bit odd for a company that's largely a hardware producer to get into creating its own video content, it's not that much of a stretch given its focus on media consumption with its Read more...
When a game like Borderlands is as funny as it is, as action-packed as it is, and features no shortage of interesting characters, it's inevitable that a movie is going to happen. And that's just what's going down thanks to a new partnership between Lionsgate, Take-Two, and Gearbox. I admit - as a rabid fan of the... Read more...
You might imagine that in 2015, we'd have a plethora of file systems that could guarantee the integrity of our data in the event of a crash - but that isn't exactly the case. While there are a handful of quality file systems that are much better than others from a data integrity standpoint (ZFS being a good example)... Read more...
Could you imagine an Internet without videos? We'd miss out on Batdad's hilarious antics, Kimbo Slice would have never gotten a shot to fight professionally, and Justin Bieber wouldn't be a mega star. Come to think it, maybe it wouldn't be so bad after all, though that's getting off topic. Videos are a major part of... Read more...
Using special effects to de-age actors is nothing new. Hollywood has put this tech to use (with varying degrees of effectiveness) in movies like X-Men: The Last Stand, The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons, Tron Legacy, and more recently in Ant-Man. However, those movies had the help of highly capable visual effects... Read more...
It looks as though North Carolinas municipal Internet fight is about to get a bit nastier. North Carolina Attorney General Roy Cooper has gone to the mattresses in order to stop the FCC from exerting its power over state affairs. But before we get into this latest development, we need a bit of a backgrounder. The... Read more...
Is this an April Fools joke, a simple error on its part, or a massive, high-profile leak from one of Apples largest suppliers? We may never know, but LG Display last week issued a press release announcing its next generation of high-resolution 8K display panels. While the arrival of 8K displays is headline-grabbing...

The audio industry is filled to the brim with magical devices that are capable of reshaping the reality of those that dare tread within its realm. There is often utter bewilderment at the expressions some people use to converse with each other on the subject. What is the color of sound, 'clarity', 'warmth'... Read more...
Climbing Mount Everest isn't easy for a number of reasons. There's the logistics of traveling to the Khumbu region of Nepal, home to Mount Everest, the world's tallest peak. But assuming you have the time, money, and experience to make the trek, it's a dangerous climb, one that has claimed over 200 lives. You can now... Read more...
A couple of months ago, we saw Google roll out a neat feature that allows people to view song lyrics right inside of their search, removing the need to visit any website (much to the chagrin of lyrics sites everywhere, I'd imagine). Now, we're seeing a similar thing for drinks. While the lyrics feature requires a... Read more...
When news broke that the unparalleled attack against Sony last month was linked to a hacker group displeased with the company's film The Interview, there was little doubt that this wasn't an issue that'd die off fast. And considering the fact that the film tells a tale of two guys sent to North Korea to assassinate... Read more...
WithGoogleresponsible for at least 50% of the world'ssearchtraffic, I think it's safe to say that the company knows what it's doing in search -- but that doesn't mean that its service can't be improved over time. No one seems to realize that better than Google itself, as we've seen many features rollout over the years... Read more...
Things just keep going from bad to worse for Sony and the upcoming release of The Interview, a film that plots the assassination of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The company was hit with a massive cyberattack in November and the resultant fallout has included leaked internal documents, social security numbers of... Read more...
We wrote just a couple of weeks ago that Mozilla was shacking up with Yahoo to replace Google as Firefox's long-standing default search engine, and it didn't take long for the fruits of that relationship to be seen. With todays release of Firefox 34, Mozilla has pulled the trigger on that move and at the same time... Read more...
