    Internet TV catching on

    Internet taking piece of cable TV business Interestingly enough, the article offers no hard facts on just how many are transitioning to Internet TV, but it'll be fun to watch over the next few years how cable and satellite TV services will try to compete against Internet TV.

    8 Million Homes Still Not Ready for DTV According to Nielson Ratings

    There are a few websites spreading good news about a recent survey done by Nielson Ratings on DTV, which showed that that more viewers are converting to DTV, but at 8 million total homes still not ready, I wouldn't start celebrating just yet!

    Sony DAV-IS10: Is this a good Home Theater in a box?

    I'm kind of in the market for a small home theater system. Something cheap, not "boomy", yet good enough to play at low volumes in a apartment. It looks like the DAV-IS10 has fallen in price to the $350 price range which is perfect. Does anyone own this system or a previous generation?

    Government DTV Dollars at work: Nascar "DTV" Sponsor

    I'm not one to argue with the fact that spreading the word about the digital transition isn't cheap. I just don't think I can agree with the FCC's decision to buy advertising on a Nascar race car. The sponsored vehicle is NASCAR team No. 38 and the sponsorship is for three races. Their total...

    Carol Burnett lawsuite against "Family Guy"

    I found this little tidbit browsing through the Family Guy Wiki page. I must have missed this story when it first came out in 2007. This seems so rediculous to me that Carol would even consider a lawsuit. Cartoons like the Simpsons and Family Guy have done parody on numerous actors and...
