Hulu Plus Comes To Android!

If you are Android fan, but have been bummed out lately due to the lack of video content (A.K.A Hulu Plus), you’ll be glad to hear this. Hulu Plus is now available on six Android devices (to start) and will hopefully expand to all Android devices in the future.

The supported devices include the Nexus One, Nexus S, HTC Inspire 4G, Motorola Droid II, Motorola Droid X, and the Motorola Atrix. Since I do not subscribe to the the $8 monthly service, I cannot tell you whether it will work on other Android devices, such as my HTC G2.

YouTube Delivers Creative Commons Library

Youtube has just delivered a Creative Commons license that allows creators to reuse and remake their favorite content, with ease. With the new copyright license from Creative Commons, licensors will be able to keep the copyright while letting others copy, distribute, and re-use the work for non-commercial purposes.

This will make it perfectly legal to remix clips and videos that are tagged with the Creative Commons license. The only requirement is that the original creator gets credited at some point in the video.

Forget 75 Inches, 85″ 3D TV On The Way

Just three days after we covered Samsung’s 75-inch 3D TV, it appears that Bang & Olufsen heard the news. The company has just announced an 85-inch BeoVision 4-85 3D television that’s going to start shipping next month. I bet many of you were shocked when we told you that 75″ Samsung was going to set you back $17,600 but guess how much 10 extra inches costs you? The BeoVision 3D TV will retail at $85,000. Talk about sticker shock!

Enjoy Crackle On Your iPad, 100% Free

Sony has released the Crackle app for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch this past Monday. The new application allows consumers to stream full-length movies and television shows to their respective Apple devices, for free. That’s right, users can enjoy unlimited, on demand viewing for free. The app comes as an extension of the www.crackle.com website it streams movies and television episodes at the cost of the viewer watching a couple of commercials. If you’ve already connected the dots, this service is very similar to Hulu.

The Sharp 70-inch HDTV

You could find me comfortably saying that a 55″ TV is large. I think a 55″ TV is a nice size for any home. Watching movies or playing games on a television that size would be pure bliss. Sharp has outdone our impressions with the 55″ standard, by releasing a 70″ HDTV.

Sharp claims that this 70-inch screen has 62% more screen space than a 55-inch television, which I am still comfortable calling it the gold standard of television sizes. The model is called LC-70LE732U and is the largest LCD HDTV…

Next Generation Television Watches Your Every Move

Intel demonstrated a focused on camera that recognizes both facial and gesture input at Intel Developer Forum, Beijing 2011. The demo begun by showing an avatar being controlled by having the camera map on the user’s face. This mapping allowed the user to control the avatar’s head movements as well as the facial features, enabling the avatar to laugh, smile, frown, or look confused.

The gesture recognition allows users to control and navigate the user interface with the wave of a hand. This hand waving allows photos to move from right to left, zoom in and out and rotate pictures in clockwise or counterclockwise directions. The next demonstration showed how the software uses facial recognition to determine how many males and females are present in the room, their age, and their emotion (happy or sad). The application uses this information to…

Fully Featured Samsung 3D TV With Internet!

If you’re looking for a new smart TV, the Samsung UN55D8000 is one of Samsung’s highest quality smart TVs. The television supports 3D content when paired with a 3D Blu-ray player. Please note that PlayStation 3’s have a built-in Blu-ray player. The screen has a 240Hz refresh rate, making it twice as snappy as what is normally needed to pull off 3D video. The faster frame rates allow for smoother and more life like action on the screen. While having fast frame rates isn’t normally a “do or die” situation, it is very important for fast moving action scenes and video games. The television also supports full 1080p content and works as well for normal television as it does for higher end video like Blu-ray or 3D video.

Time Warner Cable And Viacom Sue Each Other Over iPad Streaming?

Time Warner Cable and Viacom have filed lawsuits against each other over an iPad application that lets users stream live TV. Both companies have asked a New York judge to decide whether Time Warner is able to distribute channels on its cable network through the Apple tablet, instead of a television, without negotiating extra deals with cable networks. Time Warner pulled 11 channels from the application after complaints from parent companies. The channels that were removed include MTV, VH, Nickelodeon, and Comedy Central, as well as some News Corp channels. The companies claim that porting TV to a tablet is a violation of their programming contracts and are seeking to negotiate new contracts with Time Warner to stream shows for mobile devices.
