Apple TV Review: Is the Third Time the Charm?

While the original Apple TV had a few admirers among die-hard Apple fanatics and tinkerers, the company always considered the device to be a "hobby," and it never found mainstream success.

Netflix on PS3: Disc-Free Instant Streaming's Pros and Cons

Hey PlayStation3 owners: aside from having the coolest gaming system around, now you don't have to whip your disc out every time you want to watch Netflix.

All We Don't Want For X-Mas (And What You Should Get Us Instead)

The only thing we hate worse than seeing other people toting around lackluster, craptastic gear is finding it underneath our own Christmas tree. That may seem like materialistic nitpicking in a season that's about generosity -- and it is -- but what really inspires us is the idea of always getting the absolute most out of your money, and the joy of giving (or receiving) a truly excellent item....

HD-DVD's Long Walk Back to the Locker Room of Shame

Now that everyone has declared BluRay the winner in the high-def war, what with Warner's announcement and Sony finally allowing adult films to be published on the format, I think it's important to take a look at HD-DVD's long walk back to the locker room after a game well-played. It would be a mistake to say that HD-DVD will cease to exist tomorrow. In fact, expect to see just the opposite of...
