Distro Issue 76: Will a duo of phones and a new OS bring BlackBerry back to life?

Distro Issue 76 Will a duo of new phones and a new OS be enough to bring BlackBerry back to life

After delays and a software preview, RIM BlackBerry finally pulled the wraps off of it’s new hardware and operating system that we’d been looking for the end of January to bring. In this week’s edition of our e-publication, we take a look at all of the wares that the Canadian company unveiled in order to determine if it’s enough to reinvent the outfit. We also rundown the history of the unit formally known as Research in Motion to paint a complete picture of the road leading up to this week’s proceedings. Of course, there’s more than just BlackBerry stuffs to peruse. Hands-On visits NAMM 2013, Weekly Stat tallies up earnings season and we get cozy with the Pebble Smartwatch. There’s plenty of time for a bit of weekend reading, so head to your favorite repository to snag the goods.

Disney and AT&T’s U-Verse renew vows, expand the relationship and bring back ESPN 3D

Disney and AT&T's UVerse renew vows, expand the relationship

Disney and AT&T today announced a multi-year extension to their already existing relationship, which brings approximately 70 channels to AT&T’s U-Verse cable network. The new “long-term distribution agreement” also adds a handful of new content, including the return of ESPN 3D and a new ABC/Univision collaborative channel aimed at English-dominant and bilingual Hispanics. That adds to the already robust lineup, which features biggies like ESPN and ABC. It’s unclear what money exchanged hands in the deal or how long it’ll last — no specifics are given for either — but it’s safe to say your Disney-owned channels are secure for now, U-Verse users.

Samsung AllShare SDK could bring better connected apps to your Galaxy

Samsung AllShare SDK could bring better connected apps to your Galaxy

Samsung’s AllShare apps are the only implementations of the company’s DLNA-based platform to date, but now it wants external developers to help realize the tech’s potential. The AllShare Framework SDK has been released, meaning its APIs can be integrated into third-party software for the creation of “AllShare-enabled” apps. Developers will be given access to AllShare features including media streaming, screen sharing with compatible devices (or an AllShare Cast dongle), and remote control functions. Now devs can start using these tools, expect to see more AllShare-enabled apps boosting the functionality of your Galaxy device in the near future.

Netflix to bring closed captioning to all video content by 2014

Netflix to bring closed captioning to all video content by 2014

The road to become the best it can be will surely be a long one, but Netflix is certainly doing all it can to be covered on all grounds. Most recently, the streaming giant announced that it has reached a settlement with the National Association for the Deaf which ensures that the company will offer captioning services on its entire video library by 2014. Currently Netflix has caption options on nearly 85 percent of its hefty entertainment repertoire, with the outfit expected to make it 90 percent by next year and, shortly thereafter, have its full set CC-ready. Needless to say, this is a win-win for all parties involved.

TiVo Q4 results bring first sub growth in years, DirecTiVo is imminent

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2011

TiVoWhile many consumers are still waiting for something new from TiVo — finally enabling the second processor core on Premieres this weekend is a nice step, but how about more HD menus? — said company has found growth for the first time in four years by turning to a more traditional way to sell set-top boxes in the US. Yes, the growth is mostly thanks to six months of success with Virgin Media and other provider deals like the one with RCN. TiVo netted an additional 117,000 this quarter, bringing the total to just over 2 million and even more growth is expect in the coming months — despite the continuous drop in retail subscribers — thanks to the expected limited release of the DirecTiVo in December, with a more widespread release next year. This helped TiVo realize a 25 percent year-over-year growth in revenues, but still wasn’t enough to hold off a net loss, which came in at a cool 24.5 million for the quarter. You have to stop going down before you can go up, but more TiVos in more homes is a good thing for just about everyone involved.

Digital downloads bring UltraViolet one step closer to being useful

Wednesday, November 16th, 2011
UltraViloet digital downloads

The dream of being able to buy a movie once and watch it anywhere promised by UltraViolet still seems impossible, but adding digital downloads to Flixster does bring it one step closer. Of course being able to download and watch a handful of movies on a single movie application is far from anyone’s dream, but we supposed you have to start somewhere. If you had your hopes a simpler solution, though, you might also keep dreaming as the video after the break seems to show just how complicated one can make watching a movie. We suppose we’d be more excited if we’d just purchased Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 and learned that we could now also watch it on our tablet or smartphone — now even if we aren’t connected to the internet — but perhaps like you, the final Potter installment isn’t exactly on the top of our must have movie list.

New Mediaroom clients to bring Microsoft’s TV platform everywhere this year

Saturday, September 10th, 2011
Windows Media Center using Mediaroom 2.0

The days of being tied to a traditional TV to watch your favorite shows is becoming less and less of a dream — at least for Mediaroom 2.0 users, like those who subscribe to AT&T U-Verse. It hasn’t even been a full year since Xbox 360 owners were first able to launch a U-Verse blade to watch TV, but it has been about nine months when we first heard rumors of Mediaroom clients for Windows Media Center (aka Monaco), Silverlight (aka Taos) and Windows Phone (aka Rome) would see the light of day. A recent post on William Zhang’s blog, a Microsoft employee, confirms the rumored code names in addition to giving us reason to believe those using Mediaroom 2.0 software might still realize the three screen dream by the end of 2011 after all.

Boxee 1.2 update will bring order to apps with categories

Sunday, July 3rd, 2011

It may not be as swanky a revamped browser, but Boxee has revealed that the v1.2 update for the Boxee Box will help users browse through the available apps by adding more categories. NewTeeVee points out a blog post directed at developers to show how their app can be assigned some of the 14 new categories, an upgrade over the three (video, photo, music) available previously. The new version is expected to drop in “a few weeks” so we should find out then what else is in store.

Atomos Ninja and Samurai HD video recorder / monitors bring compression jutsu to pro filmmaking

Sunday, March 27th, 2011

We all drool over the hi-res video shot by cameras like the RED EPIC, but for indie-film types, processing the massive files produced takes a lot of time (and therefore money) and not everyone has an ARRI ALEXA to do native recording compression. Enter the Atomos Ninja and Samurai HD recorder / monitor / playback devices that take your 10-bit video and compress it in Apple’s 1080p ProRes QuickTime format to make your post-production life a little easier. The Ninja pulls video through HDMI and deposits it on your choice of 2.5-inch HDD or SDD storage, does playback via a 4.3-inch 480 x 270 touchscreen, and has continuous power thanks to dual hot-swappable batteries (available in 2600, 5200, and 7800 mAh varieties). Meanwhile, the Samurai matches the Ninja’s specs, but swaps out the HDMI connection for HD-SDI ports and adds SDI Loop-Through to connect an external monitor, a larger 5-inch 800 x 400 display, and 3D support (if you get two Samurais genlocked together). Both units have FireWire 800 and USB 2.0 and 3.0 connections for offloading your vids. Those with Spielbergian aspirations can pony up 5 for the Ninja right now, or pay ,495 for the Samurai upon its release this summer.
