Despite the fact that so much of our communication now happens online, TV and film have traditionally done a bad job of translating our texts, emails, and DMs to the screen. There are a lot of good reasons why: text communication doesn’t have the inherent drama of face-to-face dialogue. It dates itself quickly. And, as Tony Zhou pointed out in his video “A Brief Look at Texting and the Internet in Film” on Vimeo, dedicating precious screen time to depicting, well, another screen, can be counterintuitive and expensive. Text-based conversations on-screen often end up feeling awkward and unnatural, with geriatrically large text to let us read over a character’s shoulder, off-brand emoji floating in midair, or, worst of all, characters that narrate their texts out loud. The issue is so pressing that in 2016, two of my colleagues argued over how best to tackle texting in filmmaking. Jamieson Cox finally landed on a simple suggestion: “Don’t make your … [Read more...] about It’s time for movies to be honest about our relationships — with our phones

Purchase a first-run movie for $100 then sale it at $25 to over 100 movie vendors in the streets. I mean this is the life in the third world. As much as I would like to watch the movies ASAP after release, this is going to be a revenue killer. posted on 11 Dec 2016, 23:35 0 3. Nine1Sickness (Posts: 652; Member since: 30 Jan 2011) Exactly, no more sitting in a theater with a camera and hoping no one walks in front of it while recording bootleg movie. posted on 12 Dec 2016, 00:40 1 4. deewinc (Posts: 418; Member since: 21 Feb 2013) This one is even juicier. All pirates need to do is put on some premium screen recording software and record … [Read more...] about Comments for : Steve Jobs talked about renting first run movies on iTunes back in 2010

Or skip 2015 all together and wait for Krait's successor :/ posted on 24 Jan 2015, 00:39 10 6. TyrionLannister (unregistered) I'm just hoping the exynos 7420 is awesome along with the s6. My s4 is getting long in the tooth and its screen is cracked. I need a replacement and can just hope the s6 delivers it. 12. Ashoaib (Posts: 3229; Member since: 15 Nov 2013) I exchaned my sd805 note 4 with exynos note 4. Sd805 has better battery life as compared to exynos. Exynos is eating battery very quickly, battery performance on sd805 was great. Moreover, sd805 has better graphics performance(as … [Read more...] about Comments for : Qualcomm to update the Snapdragon 810 CPU for Samsung

Because it's almost as gimmicky and useless as curved displays. posted on 16 Mar 2017, 04:02 19 3. ibend (Posts: 6747; Member since: 30 Sep 2014) right, because bigger screen is a gimmick... posted on 16 Mar 2017, 04:07 3 4. BradyCrack (Posts: 835; Member since: 29 Dec 2015) How did you get to that assumption?! They look cool and thats all. It's just an excuse for a higher price tag. 10.

Unveiled a month ago at IFA, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is a high-spec, compact tablet that now looks poised to reach U.S. consumers. With Huawei's own HiSilicon Kirin 950 SoC, 4 gigs of RAM and an 8.4-inch, 1600 x 2560 display, the MediaPad M3 is all about the high-end features. If you're U.S.-based and in the market for a small slate that packs a big punch, the M3 is certainly one to look out for. As alluded to by the name, the Huawei MediaPad M3 is very much a consumption device for those interested in music, movies and the general media experience. Its killer feature is arguably the dual stereo speakers, which are certified by Harman Kardon and produce what Huawei likes to call 'Super Wide Sound 3.0'. As noted in our hands-on coverage of the slab, the two speakers emit a fair amount of noise, while MediaPad M3 also touts some fine tuning to benefit those who prefer plug-in headphones.With a 5100 mAh battery packed inside, the M3 should be able to … [Read more...] about Huawei MediaPad M3 will be launched in the U.S.
