This is the worst site on the Internet… and I can’t look away

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to stare pure evil right in the face, look no further than vvatch.tv. What is vvatch.tv, you ask? It’s an endless loop of YouTube videos. All the videos. Looping. Endlessly. It may very well be the worst website on the Internet, but it’s practically impossible to look away. What am I watching? What’s coming next? It’s agonizing and glorious. And thankfully, it’s going away soon. More →

With an easy to use interface and an abundance of $0.99 songs, Apple’s iTunes Music Store famously helped phase out illegal file sharing networks. In a similar vein, it appears that affordable video streaming services are slowly but surely putting a dent in the popularity of BitTorrent.

Opera Max Netflix YouTube Data Caps

Use this app to stop Netflix and YouTube from eating all your monthly mobile data

Have you ever received that dreaded text message from your wireless provider that you’ve reached 90% of your data cap before the end of the month? It’s a weird feeling, being scolded by your smartphone, but it’s certainly better than the alternative of the providers just collecting their overage fees at the end of the month.

Welcome to the beginning of the end for pay TV bundles

Welcome to the beginning of the end for pay TV bundles

It’s the end of the world as we know it, and pay TV companies do not feel fine. In fact, they are hurting quite badly, and things are only going to get worse. Perhaps it’s karmic retribution for years of anti-consumer policies. Or perhaps these behemoths just thought that their lobbying dollars could shield them from reality forever.

Whatever the case, the bottom line is clear and simple: U.S. media giants are in trouble, and we won’t see many tears shed if they topple. More →

Cord cutters: Free app makes Netflix like watching cable TV so you can relive pay TV’s glory days

There are some things about pay TV that cord cutters will never, ever miss. The first couple that obviously spring to mind are the ridiculously expensive prices, and the annoying channel bundles that can’t be broken apart. But, no matter… all that is behind you now if you’ve cut the cord, and that’s part of the reason so many are saying goodbye to traditional pay TV.

Cable and satellite TV do have some redeeming qualities though, and there are actually a few things cord cutters might actually miss once their pay TV packages are gone. Now, however, there’s a nifty free app that lets you relive cable TV’s glory days without having to pay for it. More →

YouTube is back with a vengeance and is now more popular than cable

During Google’s recent earnings conference call, Google chief business officer Omid Kordestani said that YouTube is now bigger than any individual US cable network when it comes to attracting 18-49 year olds, advertising’s most sought after demographic.

Despite YouTube’s apparent inability to generate much of a profit, the popular video sharing site has seen user engagement metrics skyrocket in recent months. Speaking to this, Kordestani relayed that viewers are spending more time watching YouTube videos than ever before. Year over year, the amount of time users, on average, spend watching videos is up an impressive 60%. Underscoring this tremendous growth, Kordestani added that this is the fastest growth rate in viewing time YouTube has seen in over two years.
