Kelly Guimont and John Martellaro join Jeff Gamet to sort out 4K upscaling and what it means for Apple TV streaming movies, plus they look at Tim Cook’s role as Apple’s leader.
The demand for 4K movies has brought about the business of upscaling 2K movies to 4K and marketing them as 4K. Should we care?
In the “strange, but true” category, Jeff Butts has discovered that neither macOS High Sierra or iOS 11 seem to support 4K content from iTunes yet.
Apple TV finally got 4K video support on Tuesday when Apple showed off a new model during its “Let’s meet at our place” media event.
Apple has made big changes over the years, but perhaps none so much as its engagement in original TV entertainment.
We’re almost certain now that Apple will announce a new 4K/UHD Apple TV with HDR, perhaps on September 12th. How will it work with your current TV system?
Apple’s long anticipated 4K Apple TV is coming this fall, or so say insider sources.
Now that we’re fairly certain Apple is planning a 5th generation 4K Apple TV, it’s time to brush up on some terminology.
John Martellaro and Jeff Butts join Jeff Gamet to share their thoughts on a leak that seems to confirm a 4K Apple TV is in the works, plus Jeff B fills us in on his Arduino kit experiments and HomeKit.
It looks like the Apple TV is finally getting the feature John Martellaro has been hoping for: 4K TV support.
What happens when AI machine learning becomes so sophisticated and inscrutable that humans can no longer understand how an AI came to a decision? AI processes will go far beyond simple structured code that can be debugged and audited. Will we just shrug and accept? John maps out the major issues with advanced AIs.
Adobe Lightroom Mobile now uses RAW files in a cool new HDR mode that greatly enhance the photos you take. Andrew Orr explains why iPhoneographers should care about this update.
David Katzmaier is a CNET Senior Editor and TV reviewer, something he’s been doing for most of his career. He started at a small review website in New York and, later, a friend went to CNET and brought David on board where he’s been since about 2000. David is an expert on TV technology, and so we delved into the Retina effect, generic High Dynamic Range (HDR), Dolby Vision, 10-bit color, TV brightness levels, color gamuts, Hybrid Log Gamma, edge lighting (with light guides) vs. local dimming, the pros and cons of OLED vs. LCD, H.265 compression, 120 Hz refresh sample and hold, 4K streaming standards and the best time of year to buy a new TV. Phew! If you’re into UHD/TV tech, you’ll love this grand tour of today’s state-of the-art.
The personal computing industry is changing quickly. Again. Not long ago, there was a simple migration from Mac and PC desktops to notebooks. Then, Apple finally got the simple tablet right in 2010. However, basic tablets can’t do it all, and so Apple warmed to the iPad Pro concept. But the dust isn’t clearing. Rather the market is exploding in use cases and advanced technology. John tries to make sense of it all.
