Red Dead Redemption 2 companion app launches this week

Red Dead Redemption 2 is receiving an official mobile companion app upon release.

While a few days out, there’s still a lot to learn about the highly-anticipated title upon its slated October 26 debut. Parallel to the full game launch, an official companion app has now been announced for iOS and Android devices.

You can spend a fortune on a new TV. But you really don’t have to.

You can spend a couple thousand dollars on a TV. And if you have a couple thousand dollars to spend on a TV, by all means do it. You’ll get something pretty incredible with an OLED panel.

But for those of us who don’t have a couple thousand dollars to spend on a TV, it’s not like we have to settle for some  [Read More…]

The week of endless notch takes no one cares about

It might shock you to read this, but our collective thoughts on notches hasn’t really moved the needle.

There’s been a lot of chatter about notches this week, which lives in a month and a year full of takes on display cut-outs. The people who aren’t a fan of this display trend are plenty vocal, and as we’ve seen with the Pixel 3 XL leaks the size of the notch is directly related to just how vocal  [Read More…]

Jerry and Phil get the band back together and nerd out on some antennas.

One of the best things you can do when you ditch cable or satellite and go all-streaming is to rig up a good over-the-air system. It’s a relatively inexpensive way to fill any gaps in your coverage and ensure that you’ll get the local channels you need.

That’s not to say it’s not a little tricky. Everyone’s situation is going to be different.  [Read More…]

Hype. You missed the hype. Or, maybe there’s been no way to avoid it.

Hype is a funny thing. It’s almost impossible to live up to, and yet it’s also impossible to avoid.

Amazon has been hyping Tom Clancy’s Jack Ryan for what seems like forever. Months and months. And now it’s finally here, available for binging on all the platforms that support Amazon Prime Video. (Which is pretty much everything.) And the while I’m not usually  [Read More…]

TomTop is offering a Anet A8 3D printer for just $139.99 this week!

For most of us, 3D-printers are kind of alien. While they’re becoming more mainstream and time goes by, for non-creators they may as well be somewhere in the distant future. But as prices go down, availability and affordability increases and (relatively) soon they may be a part of daily life. And with TomTop offering an Anet A8 High Precision 3D Printer Kit for just $ 139.99, that time may be sooner than we realize.

Amazon Prime’s 20% discount on video game pre-orders ends next week

It’s game over for this Prime discount.

Amazon is continuously updating Prime memberships with new features and bonus offers, and there have been a few nice ones which are great for gamers, like Twitch Prime which offers free PC games to members every month. One of the best discounts that Prime currently offers is 20% off physical game pre-orders; that takes a $ 60 game down to $ 47.99, but unfortunately, Amazon just announced that the discount  [Read More…]

Choice. It’s all about choice.

More streaming options are always a good thing. Because the whole point of this is to trade in our old cable companies for something with better choices, better flexibility — and, hopefully, lower prices.

That’s why HDHomerun expanding with its own streaming lineup is a big deal. That’s why another $ 35 option is a big deal. (And, by the way, it’s one of the few services that offers The Weather Channel.)

A podcast, a Peña, and the Premier League.

Are we really starting a CordCutters podcast? Why the hell not. I mean, I’ve done a few hundred podcast episodes in my day. The trick, of course, is keeping things interesting, particularly in this age of excellent (if overproduced) podcasts.

We’re going to keep things simple, for now. We’re going to keep things loose. And we’re going to help answer some questions, I hope. So if you’ve got questions, fire  [Read More…]

Reviews, contests and more!

Here’s the thing about the future of streaming video: If you’re only doing it on a TV, you’re already behind the curve. I say that being a relatively old guy (as in older than 20) and being someone who most often does the cord-cutting thing on a display of no less than 43 inches.

My kids, meanwhile, watch anything and everything, whenever and however than can. On a phone. On a Fire HD tablet.  [Read More…]
