The Apple TV Is Now Just $69, But Is It Worth It?

image

How would you feel if you had just gone out and bought a fancy new Apple product only to have it updated with a newer, better version within only a few month's time? We've kind of grown used to Apple product cycles where products aren't outdated for at least a year. If you think there's a chance that you'd feel at all slighted by spending hard-earned money on a device that's about to become outdated, you may want to consider holding off on purchasing the Apple TV.

The Vainglory Interview, Part II. With Special Guest, Pro-Gamer George "Zekent" Liu

Out of all of the thousands of mobile games available to gamers, few if any have generated a buzz in the core gaming community like Vainglory has. Vainglory is an unapologetically core game, built from the ground up for the mobile touchscreen platform. I had the opportunity recently to sit down and chat with Vainglory's COO Kristian "EdTheShred" Segerstrale and former pro League of Legends player George "Zekent" Liu who now serves as Vainglory's Video Community Manager. What follows is an essential and informative read for anyone who is a core gamer in this day and age where touchscreens are increasingly becoming the dominant gaming platform.

Apple TV Rumored (Again) to Get Cable Channels

image

Every year, analysts predict the Apple TV will offer a la carte Cable TV channels, and every year they are wrong. Sure, some channels like HBO and ESPN have added "apps" or buttons to the Apple TV, and the HBO NOW announcement, during Apple's Watch event, help Apple inch along towards a set top box replacement. This year is no different, as the Wall Street Journal is getting a little more specific and stating Apple could add about 25 channels and could do so this fall.



Pronto and Peel Let You Use Your iPhone, and Apple Watch, to Control Your TV

image

I had the chance to try the Pronto Smart Remote ($49.99). It's a nice, affordable way to turn your iPhone into a universal remote control, and it will get better when the Apple Watch is available. The makers promise to make the app work with the Apple Watch, so you can control your TV and A/V equipment from your wrist! How cool is that? The Peel iPhone app also works as a TV guide, but it would be nice if it could leverage the full screen of an iPad. The app talks to the Pronto base station that sits within line of sight of your A/V equipment.



Game Centered: Vainglory Delivers Huge Reveals at PAX East.

image

If you follow my Game Centered column, then you already know I'm a big fan of the iOS game Vainglory, "the MOBA perfected for touchscreen." It has the potential to become one of the most popular and internationally competitive, professional-level mobile eSports thus far. Between the massive player base already devoted to the MOBA genre, and the fact that Vainglory will soon be cross-platform across both iOS and Android devices, I can see nothing standing in the way of this game being the first mobile eSport to fill stadiums and attract spectators the way more established MOBA like League of Legends and DotA 2 already do.

Sennheiser recently sent me a pair of their premium quality Momentum Bluetooth over-ear headphones ($499.95) to try out for a little while. They had quite the effect on me, a powerful one that has been difficult to put into words. Any description I give of these headphones could easily seem exaggerated, but the fact of the matter is that the Sennheiser Momentum wireless are simply one of the best pairs of headphones I've ever come across, certainly one of the best Bluetooth headphones I've had the opportunity to try out. I think you'll be impressed with my findings, read on after the break for all the details.

How often do we read articles on our smartphones? I read a ton every day on my iPhone, whether it's in a browser experience from Facebook or Twitter, or straight from Safari. Some websites have caught up to this century and have mobile layouts, but others don't. So how do we solve this problem?
