It’s a bit shameful, but I still watch “Grey’s Anatomy”. It’s my soapy guilty pleasure! I settled in last night to catch up on last night’s episode, and was surprised to discover that surgeons using Twitter was a big part of the storyline! I won’t spoil it for you, but I will say that even when the jokes were predictableRead more
How cool is this?
While having my morning coffee I read a post that it was one year ago today that the iPad was first introduced. That’s right, one year ago today all the speculation about an Apple tablet ended, the computer world was turned on its head, and my all-time favorite gadget was announced. It was a huge day
CES Day 1:
Dan to Judie “3D TV is one of the big things this year… I just don’t get it.”
Judie to Dan “I KNOW, me either…”
Kevin (thinks, but does not say) “Phew, one less new gadget this year…”
CES Day 2, Morning:
Judie, Dan and Kevin spend time with Oakley to learn about, and experience 3D TV
Remember when a television was just the large box that showed pictures?!? Television technology has seemed to change quickly and drastically in the past few years. My kids saw an old standard tube television and laughed at it recently. They could not believe that not long before they were born, we had one ourselves. Hillcrest Labs is pushing this technology
One of the first things Kevin and I bought for our new house was a 55″ VIZIO LCD HDTV from Sam’s Club. I’ll admit that we were a little bit nervous about purchasing a VIZIO, because we had not heard much about the brand, and the only places that we had ever seen them were at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club
I spent a large portion of the summer building a nice deck just outside my back door. Once it was finished we would sit out there under the bright Texas stars and I would tell my wife I needed a way to watch sports out there. My WiFi is full strength on the deck, but I could rarely watch live
It is Russia. That is right – the same Russia that was in economic ruins for the entirety of the 90′s and most of the new millennium.
For contrast, in the US flat panel TV sales are stagnant in terms of numbers, and plummeting in terms of dollars according to recent reports:
In terms of dollars, U.S. sales plunged 15.4
Yesterday Oprah surprised her audience members, who were a group of people who had all “given-back” in some way to their communities, with her “favorite things” show. The annual event in which Oprah showcases her favorite products of the year and gives each audience member one of them has become the hottest ticket in daytime television. There’s always one orRead more
At the end of last season my family started watching Glee, and we have been fans ever since. I wouldn’t call us ‘Gleeks’ since we miss episodes here and there and will watch other things in the same time slot on occasion – but we enjoy the show and look forward to it each week.
This week’s episode was particularly

I don’t know about anyone else, but one staple of my childhood cartoon viewing was the Rocky & Bullwinkle show. The high-pitched squirrel and block-headed moose, along with the not-so-well-disguised Russian spies Boris & Natasha, My. Peabody & Sherman, Dudley Do-Right, and so on wove a wonderful set of memories that have lasted through the decades.
Today we learn that
Last night we got the ‘official’ news of what anyone who remotely follows popular television programming has known for weeks – Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler are joining Randy Jackson to make up the panel for the new season of American Idol.
As I have stated before, my family is of the opinion that Idol has been on a pretty
Before being recreated into a mediocre retread of every late-teen-angst show since the original, and which barely managed to get a third season based on some very anemic reviews and ratings, 90210 was a powerhouse guilty pleasure show on the FOX Network back in the early 90′s created by Darren Star.
Now today is September 2nd, 2010, or 09/02/10 …
I love Apple’s products. I really do. And as more and more of my family and friends are making the move to Apple’s offerings they too are realizing how great they are. I was chatting with a good friend last night. He and his wife both swapped their Windows boxes for MacBook Pros in the last month. I asked ifRead more
TiVo, Slingbox and Roku are increasingly commonplace in American homes. The problem is, more and more of us have multiple set-top boxes taking up multiple outlets and sucking up electricity while costing a small fortune. Vulkano is poised to change all that with their converged set-top box.
…a sleek consumer device with a tightly integrated hardware and software
Who says social networking doesn’t do anything good for the world? Philo, a social network designed around sharing your television addiction habits, has launched a “Save Teresa” campaign. Don’t know who Teresa is? Read on…
Teresa Guidice is one of the “stars” of the Real Housewives of New Jersey. While I try to avoid tv trash, it’s a train
Last week my fiancée and I set out to do a no-TV week…here are my quick thoughts on how it went!
Day 1: Not terrible. The worst withdrawal symptoms were right after work, when we would normally flop down on the couch until it was time to hit the gym and be tortured by the personal trainer. Instead, we
My fiancée and I watch a fair amount of television. It’s not the ONLY thing we do, but we tend to leave it on a great deal in the background during the evenings. In the summer, there’s not much we really follow, but somehow the TV still ends up on around 7:30, 8pm and stays on until around 10.
Back in the day, a cable station renamed itself from “TNN” to “Spike TV,” and positioned itself to be “the first television channel for men.” Frankly, I have no idea what that means in the abstract–to me it would be lots of James Bond movies, interspersed with The Three Stooges–but the Spike programming folks interpreted it as lots of wrestling
We just got word that the NewKinetix LLC, of Portland, Oregon, today officially announced the release of their Rē plug-in accessory and Rē Universal Remote Control App, which they showed off at CES 2010.
The Rē accessory is now available for purchase at www.newkinetix.com and via Amazon for an MSRP of $69.95; and the required Re Universal Remote Control App
It never failed that when someone would visit while I was testing the Hillcrest Loop pointer, they would invariably pick it up and wear it like it was an over-sized bangle — because at first glance, that is exactly what it resembles. But the Loop is much more than just a piece of giant plastic jewelry.
The Loop pointer actually
It is March Madness, the game is coming to a close and yet another of your bracket picks is about to fall. You do not want to miss the last second shot from the latest 14th seed Cinderella story. If you are like me, there will now be three or four bracket pools that will need to be paid up
Four or five years ago my kids got my wife and I involved watching American Idol from the very beginning of the season, since it was something they discussed with their friends. In various articles I’ve been pretty clear that my musical tastes range pretty far from the popular realm, but family time trumps all for me. On a now
Vampire power is the power your electronic devices use when they’re turned off. Example: You plug your digital camera into an electrical outlet to re-charge its battery. Once the battery is fully charged the camera keeps taking power from the wall and attempts to give it to the camera’s battery even though it doesn’t need it.

We all watch TV. Its what we do when we aren’t online or going out into the real world. We just thought it was for watching the Lost premiere or that special episode of Mythbusters, but now, TV has gone and done something different. In this new world of digital convergence, you can now download an application from your television.
