Watch Stephen Colbert lose his beard for the first Late Show preview

The transition from Letterman to Colbert is going to be weird for many reasons, not least of which is the fact that Colbert’s Late Show doesn’t start until Tuesday, September 8th. But rather than rest on his laurels until the fall, Colbert and his writing team began releasing content for the show this week, including a short video, a podcast and an app. More →

Apple’s anticipated TV subscription service has been delayed

With just one week before WWDC kicks off in San Francisco, one of the Apple announcements many folks were looking forward to the most has reportedly been delayed.

For months now, we’ve been hearing rumors of Apple rolling out a TV subscription service aimed at undercutting traditional cable TV providers with a more wallet-friendly $30-$40 pricepoint. Now comes word via Re/Code that licensing and money issues have pushed back Apple’s TV plans, perhaps as far back as 2016.

Apple Web TV Service Delay

Why Apple’s cable-killing TV service might be delayed

By on May 22, 2015 at 6:45 PM.

Why Apple’s cable-killing TV service might be delayed

Earlier this year, we learned that Apple was beginning to get serious about launching a web TV service of its own — something to compete with the other over-the-top services that have started popping up around the market. Having its name attached to the service will be a plus, but Apple wants to truly differentiate itself from the competition.

Unfortunately, that could mean we won’t see the Apple’s service any time soon. More →

HBO Game of Thrones Piracy

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

By on May 21, 2015 at 6:05 PM.

HBO can’t do anything to stop Game of Thrones piracy

Try as it might, HBO simply can’t keep Game of Thrones piracy at bay. Despite HBO’s best efforts as of late, which have included going after Periscope users and even bars holding public viewings of the show, the demand for GOT is simply too overwhelming to keep piracy in check.

This week’s most recent episode was reportedly downloaded over 3.5 million times in just a 24-hour period, setting a new record in the process. So even with HBO Now subscriptions presumably doing quite well (the iOS app is the 8th highest grossing app on the App Store), GOT related piracy is seemingly a force that can’t be stopped.

LG HDTV OLED Display

LG’s incredible new HDTV prototype is as thin as paper

LG’s incredible new HDTV prototype is as thin as paper

Just when you thought that TVs couldn’t possibly get any thinner, LG has gone and upped the ante with an incredible 55-inch OLED wallpaper display that measures in at less than a millimeter and weighs just barely over four pounds.

While the display itself is more of a proof of concept device than something you can pick up at your local Best Buy today, the display may very well be a glimpse into how many of us will watch TV in the (distant) future.

Video: HBO’s Silicon Valley reveals the worst insult you can give a product: ‘Apple Maps bad’

If you haven’t yet watched the brilliance that is HBO’s Silicon Valley, do yourself a favor and start tuning in. While the show is funny in its own right, it’s especially funny for anyone with even a passing interest in tech culture.

In case you missed it, last week’s episode of Silicon Valley had a little bit of fun at Apple’s expense.

The setup for the Apple-related humor is as follows: When a Nucleus backed UFC livestream goes awry, Nucleus CEO Gavin Belson demands answers.
