If you can't make it camping this year, perhaps Sir David Attenborough's upcoming wildlife TV project in VR will suffice. And for immersion in something with fewer dimensional dynamics, maybe Sony's lineup of 4K TVs will fit the bill. Yes, it's been a relatively slow week for HD, but Richard and B

Things are heating up in the podcast studio this week and it's either Terrence's cardigan, Amazon's new Fire TV or the residual effects of Joseph's encounter with a real action hero. There's also a pile of news that came out of Microsoft's Build conference, which isn't surprising considering how l

It helps if you're born Luckey, but if you also work hard at building Oculus Rift, the rewards are apparently somewhere in the ballpark of $2 billion dollars. Not Dr. Evil levels, to be sure, but you could certainly equip a school of dolphins with lasers, or buy a ton of dogecoins. If you haven't

Keeping it real used to be the goal, but now it seems that real reality just isn't that interesting anymore. Virtual reality, on the other hand, that's taken the tech world by storm lately. Both Sony and Oculus demoed their latest VR wares at GDC last week, and this week Facebook decided to drop s

This week's podcast begins with some behind the scenes perspective of SXSW before Ben's allowed to get all Titanfall on us. That said, there's a melange of topics under discussion, from the Game of Thrones/HBO experience to tales of a 6-year-old Chelsea Clinton and her kitchen table opinion coachi

If the Titanfall release had coincided with the start of March Madness, there probably wouldn't have been a podcast this week. As it is, we had to tear Richard away from his Xbox One to help Ben review the HD details that have been pouring in. There's a constant shuffle of content, ISP deals and up
