With the "Big Game" happening in just a couple of days, many of us have a bunch of last-minute things to tackle. There's the beer, snacks, extra chairs if you're hosting the party, beer, an address in case you're going out for a party, a clean jersey and of course, that one little thing every Super Bowl party needs: beer. With all of this to take care of, few have the time to scout out the best Super Bowl-related apps. Fortunately, Google has you covered - as long as you're an Android user, of course. The company has just posted a list of nine "End Zone Essential" apps, many of which I can get behind myself. For those actually headed down to New Orleans (you lucky bugger), you can snatch the...

Haven't you heard? Tablets are all the rage. They're blowing up, and it seems that everyone wants in on them. Even cell phone carriers. All four of the major U.S. carriers managed to acquire Samsung's Galaxy Tab, but a recent report at the Wall Street Journal hints that another may be in the works. Recently, Verizon Wireless was selected in place of Sprint to be the major distribution partner of the NFL, and now the National Football League "is in talks with Verizon Wireless to distribute its football programming via a tablet computer." DirecTV has recently touted the ability to watch live games on cell phones across the nation, but watching a full-scale game on a small screen for hours isn't... Read more...
3D is here to stay, for a while anyway. And that means that 3D content will slowly but surely arrive to catch up with the 3D hardware that's already out there. Programming is sure to scare for some time, as not many programs are even equipped with the cameras to shoot in 3D, and not all content will be shot in 3D. With HD, everything could benefit from a higher resolution. That's not the case with 3D, with some content simply looking gimmicky when transformed. But one area where most everyone can agree that 3D will benefit is sports. The World Cup already proved that sports in 3D has traction to gain, and the NFL is apt to follow suit. Select football matches have been shown to select groups... Read more...
If you thought microchips were only good for powering your desktop, netbook and cellphone (and maybe that tracking thing within your pup), you should think again. America's most popular sport (that's football, of course) is considering using microchips to better officiate games, make better calls and avoid mistakes that could prove costly if made at the wrong time. The NFL has been using Instant Reply for some time now in order to really evaluate close calls on the field, but even those aren't perfect. Camera angles can be blocked by players, and things can happen so quickly that even when slowed down, it's hard for the human eye to tell what a call should be. But if a microchip were inside of...

Like the NFL? Who doesn't, right? Evidently Sprint is certainly expecting its own customers to dig it, as it has today announced that it will be the only wireless carrier to offer live NFL Network game telecasts via its exclusive NFL Mobile Live application and on Sprint TV beginning Nov. 12 when NFL Network televises the first of its eight-game Thursday Night Football schedule.Sprint has always embraced mobile TV more seriously than the other carriers, but this type of partnership could actually get more than a few people to switch. The NFL is easily the most popular sport in America, and the allure of free games on-the-go is pretty darn tempting. Best of all, both NFL Mobile Live and Sprint... Read more...
If you aren't wearing your tin-foil hat, you might want to go get it before reading any further.Now that you have your tin-foil hat, we'll issue a not-too subtle warning that this as a wild rumor/allegation and it could easily fall under the heading of 'crackpot' theories despite having a big Hollywood name attached to it.  Microsoft may have manipulated the next generation disc format wars in an attempt to make downloading more popular.The theory contends that HD DVD was losing the war against Blu-Ray, and that Microsoft threw their support behind the standard in an attempt to make any standard adoption less likely to happen.  Even Transformers directory Michael Bay seems to believe...
