Piracy is a tricky subject, especially when it comes to pay TV. On one hand, there is little question that stealing is wrong, and streaming pay TV channels without paying for them is, without question, stealing. But on the other hand, television networks and pay TV service providers have created an industry that couldn’t possibly be more anti-consumer. Bundles force subscribers to pay for content they’ll never watch, customer service is atrocious, and shady deals prevent competition in each region so consumers rarely have choices.
At this point, cutting the cord is the only way consumers can fight back, but it obviously comes at a cost — most programming is no longer available as it airs. Beyond that, the networks might feel the sting but pay TV providers still win, since they also supply the country with high-speed Internet service.

Android fans looking for a unique take on Google’s sleek Material Design may find the latest hot Galaxy S6 theme to be impressive enough to warrant sticking with TouchWiz over Google’s own Google Now launcher.

Amazon is best known for selling the widest possible range of products at prices that often undercut rivals by a fairly substantial margin. Of course, Amazon is much more than that now. The company’s streaming movie and TV service attached to Amazon Prime grows more competitive each day, and there are plenty of other areas Amazon dabbles in. Among the company’s offerings is the Amazon Appstore, which provides a third-party alternative to Google’s own Android app store.
And there’s one area where Amazon has Google beat: The company gives away one new app for free every single day of the year. More →
In January 2012, Samsung said it was time for the tide to turn. A year later, the company managed to keep its impossible promise. With a marketing budget that reached well into the billions and a single message, Samsung began its rapid ascent to the top of the smartphone market by shipment volume. That single message: “The iPhone stinks.”
Samsung’s messaging has been a bit more varied in recent years, but the company always seems to end up going back to what worked for it in those early years. More →
