    Powered Geek Box December 2015 – Review and Coupon Code

    It’s a shame that this Powered Geek Box fell through the cracks for us, because it was a great one. With that said, Powered Geek Box closed the year with another fun themeless box.

    Samsung Sets An Impressive Baseline for Their 2016 SUHD TVs

    Last year’s announcement of Samsung’s flagship SUHD smart TVs set a high bar, introducing Nano Crystal display technology, HDR, and brightness well past what their TVs were capable of before.

    Asus Chromebit CS10 is the First Stick PC to Run Chrome OS

    Putting Chrome OS on a stick PC is tricky — Chromebooks have carved out a nice niche in the notebook market by being noticeably cheaper, compensating for the limits to usefulness, like not being able to run third party programs.

    AT&T is Selling the Samsung View for Just $100, But There’s a Catch

    We’ve seen large tablets before, but nothing quite like this — Samsung is now selling their Galaxy View, an 18.4″ 1080p entertainment tablet with a built-in app interface that resembles what you’d see on a smart TV.

    Sony’s 4k Televisions Now Support HDR Content, But What Does That Mean?

    Warning: marketing speak ahead. But, once we hack through that forest, there just might be something to Sony’s claims that even more of their lineup of 4k televisions now support high dynamic range (HDR) video. Sony first started talking about HDR video in April, when it was reported that their 75″ flagship 4k X940C television […]
