  • Thank you papa Sony for the HDMI

    There is nothing worse then getting home after buying a PS3 – for use as a Blu-ray – and realizing no one told you the box comes missing one important item.

  • Video: DirecTV's App Store leaves a lot to be desired

    I know the DirectTV app store has been out for a bit, but I watched this video and was shocked. It seems that DirecTV added these apps or widgets just to be cool and hip like everyone else.
