Everyone was in awe when the Taiwanese phone giant HTC released its former flagship the Sensation. It came with a 4.3 inch display that offered more room for your touch screen needs. At the time, it shipped running the most advanced smartphone-optimized operating Android had to offer version 2.3 (Gingerbread). Lastly, it was one of only two phones that came packed with a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. At the time, this was the most powerful processor to be outfitted on a mobile phone. Now, the Taiwanese phone manufacturer has released two more versions of this powerhouse of a smartphone. These are the XE and XL versions.
From a still picture released on the first day of filming to the official trailer release at Comic-Con in July, it’s been a summer filled with excitement over Season 4. Not to mention the announcement of a spinoff, due in 2015.
I also love our Streaming Service because it is integrated into my TV, and I can watch anytime I want. The benefits of our 600+ Premium HD Channels of Live Tv, Sports, and Movies are really quite different from the benefits of DVD by mail. We need to focus on rapid improvement as streaming technology and the market evolves, without maintaining compatibility with our DVD by mail service.
Other free streaming services build playlists based on artists, so users who want to listen to Coldplay may have to also listen to other artists with similar music. Spotify’s new free service allows users to solely listen to a single artist rather than just a few songs here and there.
Although it isn’t quite as smooth as when using the computer (it is better if you use a mouth and keyboard instead of the Playstation 3 controller), the web browser is the best in the home console market. The Opera browser for the Nintendo Wii lacks many features while the Xbox 360 doesn’t even have one. The Playstation 3 still lacked the necessary flash support to access more advance websites, however.
But DVD rental… now that’s a differnet matter. There is a choice. Hello Blockbuster my old friend. Turns out Blockbuster was excited about this Netflix debacle and had a special program. This was going to be easy… keep Netflix streaming and switch to Blockbuster for DVDs. It didn’t work though.
I have heard a rumor that Microsoft may eventually integrate the Kin with Windows Mobile 7 when it is released and then it would be possible to add apps to it. But for now the lack of apps is a highly negative factor.
Cable companies and Cable TV will not be disappearing anytime soon. They to are trying to evolve and adapt to the latest trends. Adding more content on their Web Sites and trying to bring TV content to different devices. Only time will tell if this strategy will work. But more and more people are saying goodbye to cable and relying totally on online services. According to an April report by Convergence Consulting Group, 800,000 U.S. households got rid of their Cable TV service. Many predict this number will rise even more in the coming years. Seems consumers want to view their shows without any constraints; not having to rely on schedules or a cable box in their Entertainment Theater. They want their shows on their phones, pads, gaming consoles, Blu-ray Players, and on demand.
