AV Rant #279: You Are Boring
Ever wonder about highly directional sound? The Soundlazer promises just that. While it still has a ways to go before meeting its funding goal, it is well on its way. This is a tech that has obvious applications in a retail setting but might also work in a home. Tom would love to check one out and Liz wants to be shown that it isn’t some elaborate hoax. Firmware updates have become fairly standard these days and Tom doesn’t like it. Liz doesn’t like that they are now updating the ends of video games based on players’ reactions. Would you pay extra to be allowed to twitter while in a movie theater? How about for 2D, is that worth extra to you? Google wants all your data and users are crying foul. Tom thinks it is all an overreaction. What do you think? Oh, and your new Samsung TV may be spying on you. So there’s that. Thanks for listening. Check out our Facebook Page.
