Growing up in the 90s, if i wanted to watch cable tv I was limited to x amount of channels. I truly had to make do with what I had. But now the possibilities are endless. Cable tv now provides you with thousands of channels and even that seems to not be enough. If thats not enough we now have countless services to watch any type of show or movie. Amazon video, Netflix, Hulu just to name a few. Our tv possibilities are simply endless at this point. We can instantly watch shows we've missed…Continue

I work 6-7 days a week running a funeral home. The nature of the business paired with it being your own small business can be highly stressful. Nothing is more sacred to me than being able to unwind and watch some tv. I am a true lover of the television. I have so many shows over various genres and networks that I follow religiously. Coming home after a long and crazy day, all I want is to lay down on the couch with a beer and binge watch my shows. That is my day to day stress relief.…Continue

My favorite subjects back in school were Literature/History and Technology. Both these subjects really allow one to express in written form ideas that can turn something considered rather small into something big. Technology on the other hand, takes these ideas and helps shape it in the physical, material world. After all, technology (even in its rudimentary form) was, and still is, a way and means that gave shape and form to abundance and prosperity (in the right hands of…Continue

Problems. They seem to be everywhere. From personal to business it permeates all our lives. The Buddha posited, that "all human activity eventually ends in suffering." All the great self-authors of our day would tell you that problems can't all be eliminated, but they can certainly be managed. In a sea of activity from work, appointments, to the daily stresses of our lives, one thing is most absolutely certain, we as humans love to be entertained.
For me, this runs the gamut…Continue

HTC and Valve’s Vive was the first virtual reality headset that really made me jump on the VR hype train. Not only could you escape into virtual worlds, but thanks to its motion tracking sensors, your movement in the real world was translated into the digital. Like Facebook’s (FB) Oculus Rift, the Vive’s display resolution made individual pixels clearly visible in certain situations, killing any sense of true immersion.
CES 2018 had more than its fair share of wacky items and compelling gadgets, but one of the biggest trends to emerge, once again, from the popular tech expo was voice-enabled devices. And, of course, it was all about Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.
At CES 2018, Ford announced it is working with a city in which it will operate its self-driving cars. The automaker wouldn't identify the city but did say how autonomous vehicles can change the way people live.
Intel is betting that Volocopter 2X will be one of the first passenger-carrying drones to operate in the U.S. A prototype of the pilotless two-seat helicopter-like drone was shown off at CES 2018 in Las Vegas.
AMD CEO Lisa Su told Yahoo Finance that the Austin, Texas-based computer and graphics chip company is quickly working to resolve and address a recently-discovered security flaw that affects AMD computer chips.
Nvidia (NVDA) might be making big news at CES 2018 thanks to its artificial intelligence and self-driving car technologies, but the company originally started out by building PC graphics cards. It’s an impressive display of gaming power, and likely to drain players’ wallets in the year ahead. Nvidia has been working on cloud gaming technology, the ability to stream and play games at their highest settings from high-powered servers to anything from the best laptop to a 5-year-old hunk of junk, for some time now.
