When it launched, the Boxee Box did just about everything a streaming player could be expected to do and then some, so when Boxee revealed that Boxee TV will only launch with five apps, we were a bit surprised.  Even more surprising though, is the unique DVR functionality that saves your content online rather than locally.

Dolby Atmos is one of the coolest things to happen to audio in a while and a technology that really helps to make movies that much more immersive.  It can be found in a very limited number of theaters for showings of 'Taken 2,' and many of those that have heard it used have one big question – when can I have it in my house?

If you’re a fan of those gloriously overacted action films of the 80s and 90s then you don’t need a new reason to be excited about the November 20th Blu-ray release of ‘The Expendables 2.’ Of course, even the most Stallone/Schwarzenegger/Statham hating home theater enthusiast will find something exciting to check out in this release – it’s the first Blu-ray to include DTS Neo:X.

We've seen a lot of innovation over the past few years - 4K resolution, 3D television, streaming video and OLED panels for starters.  Of course, just because we're moving on to bigger and better doesn't mean there's not room to refine what we've already got.  Sharp is doing just that with its new take on the LCD panel.

Dolby Atmos is one of those innovations that you really have to hear to appreciate.  It takes care of nagging theatrical audio problems like dead spots, but it does much more than that.  With Atmos, sound engineers can direct audio to specific locations and give a better immersion and feeling of movement.  The technology was first shown to the public for 'Brave,' and it's coming again for 'Taken 2.'  A total of 15 theaters will be using Atmos, with one in Canada and two in China also embracing Dolby's new creation.
