At this year’s CES, Samsung unveiled their first 4K TV. With sizes in the 85-inch to 110-inch range, the S9 UHD 4K TV features some amazing feature and unparalleled screen quality to boot. The “Timeless Gallery” frame design showcases the juxtaposition of a minimalist concept with such a large display. With this being a Smart TV as well, users will now have the ability to access plenty of the platforms applications and utilize voice and gesture controls to get things done. Other notable features include high contrast ratio, 2.2 channel audio, integrated scaler and a fast quad-core processor.
Just a reminder that Mad Men‘s back tonight with a two-hour season premiere. After taking 17 long months off, the show’s back and when 9 PM (EST) hits, rest assured we’ll be in front the screen catching every moment and giving some commentary on Twitter along the way.
Hulu is looking to take a piece of that pie that Windows Media Center, Netflix, Boxee and all those other set ups were eating so casually. Now, Hulu Desktop is sure to change the media streaming spectrum by providing a sleek, sharp interface that’s compatible with Mac & PC six button remotes. So what sets it apart from the rest? Well, it’s got Time-Based browsing that allows you to sort programming from when it first aired as well as a Recommendations section that takes in to account what you’ve recently watched.
Guess Hulu Labs, the site’s experiment division, is getting off on the right foot.
There are very few TV shows in recent history that have been able to catch our interest. Of course, no one can argue the solidification of The Sopranos and Mad Men as elite shows of our time, but what many may argue is our endorsement of a new series on NBC entitled Kings.
The show is about a modern day monarchy, which is a contemporary re-telling of the timeless tale of David and Goliath. This series is an epic story of greed and power, war and romance, forbidden loves and secret alliances — and a young hero who rises to power in a modern-day kingdom. So why do we like it, you ask?

On February 13 at Sony Studios in Los Angeles, the taping for Kanye West’s ‘Storytellers’ episode for VH1 took place and boy was it a long one. After 3 hours of music and a therapy session where Kanye talked and the audience listened, the taping was sent to the editing room. They cut the total taping down to 90 minutes, leaving out some very interesting comments by the self-proclaimed greatest. (more…)
When this ad first appeared on the Super Bowl, the only thing that was going through my head was, “Did Pepsi really pay a premium to keep Coke ads out of the first half?” Yes, they did and although Coca-Cola has a global stronghold on their rival, we have to say that we actually enjoy watching this commercial.
The ad features Will.I.Am in a remix of Bob Dylan’s classic Forever Young. Gumby, John Belushi, Shrek and Jack Black also make appearances in this star-studded commercial that cost a cool $6 million on Superbowl Sunday.

Lil’ Wayne presented David Letterman’s Top 10 reasons I’m looking forward to the Grammy Awards the other night and although the jokes weren’t George Carlin material, watching Lil’ Wayne say anything makes us laugh.

Before Mad Men debuted on AMC, when was the last time you saw anything good on that awful channel? It’s turned into one of the best shows on television, being argued as one of the best shows to come along in a very very long time. The writing is phenominal as well as the directing. The mastermind, executive producer, and writer for the show – Matthew Weiner – has yet to finalize a deal with Lionsgate and that’s got people furious. Especially me. (more…)
The other night, we were watching newest episode of The Simpsons and boy did we enjoy it. During a trip to the mall, Lisa enters the Mapple Store and receives a myPod from Krusty. After Bart interrupts an important message from Mapple founder Steve Mobbs, angry Mapple customers chase him out of the Springfield Mall. There are few Apple-related parodies that really amused us.
We’re not going to give anything else away so check out the episode at Hulu.
