Xbox One vs. PS4 seems to be the biggest debate at E3 this year as the two consoles compete for video game supremacy.
Xbox One and Playstation 4 will be much more than just a platform to play video games. These all-in-one machines will have online capabilities just about as fully functional as a computer, they will be able to watch and stream movies, listen to music, Skype, watch cable, and the options for growth are virtually limitless. Consumers may not be sold, though.
"Sony and Microsoft still have work to do in order to convince a broad consumer base that they need to spend $400 or $500 on new hardware, in addition to $60 for each new piece of software," R.W. Baird analyst Colin Sebastian said. "There doesn't seem to be as clear a reason to upgrade compared to prior cycles, which introduced DVDs, 3D and HD to consumers." more >>
Christian Rock Band Hillsong United will finish their summer tour "Welcome Zion" on Tuesday and Wednesday. Thanks to a new app, fans around the world can live-stream their last two performances.
According to the website, the 15 year old band is "committed to writing songs that speak truth, create a unique song, connects with churches, individuals and ultimately connects people everywhere with God."
Hailing from Australia, it originated as part of the Pentacostal Megachurch Hillsong, and now tours the world. Its tenth live album, Live in Miami, came out last year, and its third studio album, Zion, came out earlier in 2013. more >>
Are you wondering why the cost of your smartphone plan keeps going up? Remember last year when AT&T hiked rates and Verizon switched from offering individual plans to a Share Everything plan? Unlimited data used to be the norm, but today people are fortunate if 1GB of data is included in their plan. On top of that, nearly every carrier has introduced some sort of data throttling, which slows down access speeds after you hit a data cap.
Demand for data among cell phone users is greater than the phone carriers can supply-because a huge chunk of the electromagnetic spectrum in America-the system needed to carry the data-is owned by the federal government. Brent Skorup at the Technology Liberation Front points out that the government owns around 1500 Mhz of the spectrum. In 2010, President Obama directed government agencies to free up a third of that spectrum for consumers to use instead. more >>
The Samsung Galaxy Tab 8.0 could be released in black as the device was spotted donning the color in a recently leaked photo.
This version that appeared in the picture had a silver trim and a white home button. Other than that, it is basically the same as the white model. The device will launch with Android 4.2.2, JellyBean, a 1.3-megapixel front camera, a 5-megapixel rear shooter, an 8-inch display with 1200 x 800 resolution, a dual-core 1.5GHz processor, 1.5GB RAM, LTE connectivity, Wi-Fi, and Bluetooth 4.0.
The Galaxy Note 3 8.0 is expected to be released sometime during the summer. It might be unveiled at an upcoming media event set to take place on June 20. Samsung will also be revealing other devices there. more >>
The advent of 'social media' has been heralded as a new, unbiased forum where ideology, politics and opinions are able to compete on a level playing field. From talk radio to social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and MySpace, these forums are generally assumed to reflect the true voice of their subscribers - untainted by the liberal bias of the mainstream media.
Unfortunately, this is changing.
I was recently stopped by Facebook for trying to post an article by Star Parker, entitled "Blacks Should Embrace NRA Gun Proposal." more >>
Soros Supports Christie, A Revelation? George Soros is apparently now supporting the re-election campaign of Governor Chris Christie. When George Soros decides to invest, it means the object is profoundly liberal and holds great promise for the cause. That would be now Chris Christie.
Apparently, all Christie's former jibes at Obama were an act just to get the president's attention. Why, they were best buds all along. Christie even fooled Ann Coulter.
Included with the Soros trend of Christie support are University of California-Berkeley's Ken Rosen, Californian Democrat fund raiser John Doerr, Chicago's Tim and Alice Mullen (who also supported Rahm Emanuel's mayorial bid), FaceBook's Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Granoff, and Ken and Shoshana Dichter. more >>
