Duct Tape and Tablets Don’t Mix

Protective gear and proper mounts like iKlip 3 keep your tablets safe and secure

Today, it’s not uncommon to see video being captured on a tablet with high-definition cameras now built-in. However, if you plan on using one to stream Facebook Live, Instagram or collect footage for your next viral YouTube video make absolutely certain it’s properly secured before you hit the record button. I’ve witnessed just one too many examples of people being pumped up, energized and excited capturing the moment only to see enthusiasm hit rock bottom. They watch in horror the slow motion descent of their precious iPad, Galaxy Tab, Kindle Fire or other tumbles to the ground and there’s little they can do to stop it.

But don’t let that painful visual deter you. [Read more…]

Netflix Interactive: Black Mirror: Bandersnatch – behind the scenes

Black Mirror is a British Sci-Fi TV series you can catch on Netflix. It’s offered in anthology style (4 seasons) and seems quite reminiscent of one of my all-time faves – The Twilight Zone. The latest offering is a standalone film, created by Charlie Brooker ( series creator)  and directed by David Slade released the last week of December 2018.
What makes it different is that this psychological feature is interactive where you choose which way the character goes and thus affect the ending.

When House of Cards made its debut on Netflix, I watched Season 1 in its entirety in less than a week. I thought that was pretty fab, but I guess that’s nothing compared to today’s Bingers who are ripping through every single episode of a season in a day. In fact, the new trend amongst the over eight million “super fans” around the world, primarily to get bragging rights is called Binge Racing with Canada clocking in with the world’s top marks.

New_Netflix_Website_ENEDMONTON, AB Jun 16, 2015/ Troy Media/ – After four years, Netflix has finally decided that it was time for an overhaul of their website. Gone are those cascading box shots that scrolled right to left like moving sidewalks at the airport. They’ve been replaced with an interface that resembles a more modern app experience than a traditional series of webpages.

Now to be fair, the site was pretty cool when it was originally designed, but four years in technology is a pretty long time. The company says that it has redesigned to take advantage of the availability of more sophisticated technology that allows for richer visuals and animations. The app like design makes sense by providing consistency across platforms as more people watch Netflix on their mobile devices including smart phones and tablets.  Read Full Post at Troy Media.

MicrowaveThere’s nothing more frustrating than when the family is watching the last episode of House Of Cards Season 3 after binge-watching all day when your son decides to make microwave popcorn.

It makes you wonder what does the microwave have to do with your TV?
