Changing the game


3net 24/7 3D channel launches this weekend, but only on DirecTV


The number of 24/7 broadcasting 3D channels in the US will go from one to three next week, now that Sony, Imax and Discovery have announced the launch of their channel, 3net, on DirecTV alongside its existing n3D channel and ESPN 3D, which will start looping its sports videos 24/7 on Valentine’s Day. Scheduled to go live at 8 p.m. Sunday night on channel 107 it promises fresh debuts all month with a new show added to the rotation every night at 9 p.m. It’s big promise is to “offer viewers the largest library of native 3D entertainment content in the world by the end of 2011” although any 3D TV owners who don’t have DirecTV would probably just be glad if it got added to their channel lineups anytime soon, check the press release after the break for all the details.

Great new app, Flipboard!

Karl Burkart

A new app for the iPad is taking the social media world by storm. Will it be the next big thing since

sliced twitter?


There’s no doubt that when Facebook first introduced the “news feed” back in 2006 — a real

-time chronicling of your friend’s activities, interests and favorite articles — it was something

of a revelation. In some ways it marked the birth of social media as we know and refer to it to

day in that it allowed the rapid, viral proliferation of content across a user’s entire “social graph”

(i.e. network of friends). Flipboard, on the

other hand, does in some ways what AOL

did for e-mail in the early days. It makes

social media accessible to a mass audience.

Even our grandparents , if equipped with

an iPad, would have no trouble “getting it”

— a sexy magazine that is updated daily via

recommendations from friends and family.

It’s a no-brainer, and it accomplishes the

remarkable task of integrating personal

media (like shared photo albums) with more

universal content like breaking news, sports

scores and weather reports.
