Yes I have had both for a week or so, and yes they are both powerful machines, but which one is better? Which one would I recommend? It may be too soon to create a final verdict, but here are my initial thoughts on both units, the pros, cons and what makes either machine outshine the other.

I ordered my Playstation 4 on Amazon and the Xbox One came via Best Buy, thanks to my lovely wife standing outside in the freezing weather for the midnight Day One launch sale. Opening the PS4 box, you first realize that the unit is very...

The Kindle Fire HDX was recently announced, and it includes a wide range of spec upgrades — from a higher res display (323 PPI, 1920 x 1200) to a 2.2GHz quad-core processor to improved battery life.

Ballmer may be on his way out, but he still has a few tricks up his sleeve. Microsoft announced this week that it will acquire Nokia’s devices and services unit, which moves Microsoft into the realm of becoming a phone maker to help with its struggling Windows Mobile and Window Phone market.

Twitter has always had its own in-house dedicated analytics software to track trends and tweets. But this week the social media giant made another big leap to social media TV tracking when it acquired the company Trendrr.

You know the drill: In order to get HBO, or any major pay channel for that matter, you have to subscribe to dozens or usually hundreds of channels. The $10 to $12 you pay for HBO is a good deal in content, until you bake in the larger expense of having to get cable television. But that may be changing, very soon.

Sony was once the darling of the TV industry. Getting a Sony Trinitron TV was the bar that people interested in tech focused on. It was the best of breed and as alluring as Apple products are today. But the last few decades, Sony has lost its footing. Last year's focus on 3-D television has ...

Unboxing a new TV is an exciting process, hooking up digital cable, satellite services, Tivo, Apple TV, Chromecast, Google TV, Xbox 360/Xbox One, PS3/PS4 or any number of other hardware options allow a large selection of video content apps. But what if you just used the apps that came with your ...

Several years ago, live broadcasting via the Web was a clunky mess. It involved various pieces of software, plug-ins, and a good amount of skill set. It got a bit easier when websites introduced live streaming via plug-ins.

Showtime heavily promoted the final season of "Dexter," but now ironically millions have no access to it. Also lost are dozens of CBS and Showtime network series, football games and much more. Viewers are stranded.
