Posted by: STAFF
From the perspective of folks who cover tech-related happenings, this is always a polarizing time of year. The final weeks of December are generally void of product announcements, yet only two weeks later, we're bombarded with new gadgets at CES. Before we move on to the latest and greatest devices of 2013, we figure it's worth revisiting some of 2012's most popular devices as suggested by our Product Finder, which includes reviews by hundreds of seasoned specialists across the Web. We've included 59 products across 14 categories along with their aggregate review score and a brief commentary that explains why they're special.

fighting it every step of the way
     Tue, Dec 11 2012 | 4:01P | Editorial | PermaLink
Posted by: STAFF
"Someday perhaps we’ll actually arrive at a point where consumers are able to pick channels ‘a la carte’ and only pay for the channels they actually want to watch. The technology to make such a thing a reality is already here, but the current cable/satellite companies are fighting it every step of the way, not wanting to lose their cash cow. At some point it’s inevitable that we will come to some sort of ‘a la carte’ option, but my gut tells me that whoever is providing the new service will find a way to make it cost as much as we are paying now even though we’ll be losing access to all those extra channels."

Posted by: STAFF
When Humble Bundle announced a promotion featuring THQ’s games last week, what resulted was on par with a digital atom bomb. Long-time fans of the service felt betrayed, disgusted by the fact that the people behind it would go against their core values for a profit. But before we get too hasty, let’s look at things from a couple of different angles.
