Some companies have started shunning trade shows like the Consumer Electronics Show and Mobile World Congress when it comes to announcing their next big thing. Samsung’s biggest Galaxy devices, for example, now get their own press events. But it seems LG isn’t one of them.
The company has released a new video teasing a “breakthrough” at MWC later this month, sparking speculation it has something special up its sleeve.
Netflix’s streaming service isn’t exactly known for having quality content. Their catalog of movies is reminiscent of the bargain DVD bin at your local Walmart. Netflix has been struggling to land any quality licensing agreements and has actually been losing a few. With Redbox Instant on the horizon, Netflix desperately needs to give its members a reason to stick around.
I knew there was a reason Dorothy and Toto wanted to go back to Kansas: Google Fiber. Google’s Fiber Project is set to go live in Kansas City and there about a million people currently considering packing up an moving because of it. I, myself, couldn’t be more jealous of what Kansas City is about to receive: the next generation of internet.
The ability to take your movies/TV shows mobile and enjoy them on a screen larger than 4-inches is one of the advantages of owning a tablet. So naturally, if you just picked up a brand spanking new Nexus 7, that’s just what you’ll want to do. In a surprise move by XFINITY, they have already gone ahead and updated their XFINITY TV Player app with beta support for Android 4.1.
I’ve complained before about cable providers dragging their feet when it comes to bringing our TV subscriptions to our mobile devices, but today, Comcast takes a baby step with their new XFINITY TV Player for Android. Comcast/XFINITY subscribers will now be able to browse and watch thousands of XFINITY ON Demand TV shows from networks and premium channels such as HBO, Starz, Showtime, Cinemax, TNT, TBS, Cartoon Network and BBC America (yay for Doctor Who).
The unfortunate reality of trying to replace cable with video subscription services such as Netflix or Hulu is that, well… they kind of suck. Okay, so that’s my opinion and it’s completely possible that you’re happy with the Walmart bargain bin selection of movies Netflix has to offer, or being last to find out that The Island was just purgatory and the whole point of LOST was, well… pointless. There’s many reasons why I’ve been unable to cut cable out of my life, and if I’m going to be paying for it every month — I might as well get my money’s worth. That’s where the Slingbox SOLO comes in.

BARCELONA, MOBILE WORLD CONGRESS 2012 — The last of Samsung’s interesting announcments at the Mobile World Congress is the Galaxy Beam. It looks like a regular, if a little chubby, Galaxy smartphone, but when you press a switch on the side a 15-lumen projector flares into life. The demo was in a dark (and crowded, and sweaty) room so we could actually see the images it throws out, but even so, it came off better than most pico projectors I have tested.
