This morning, I brought up Hulu.com as I read that linking your Facebook Connect account added a free month of Hulu Plus to my Hulu account.  I love Hulu Plus!  Why wouldn't I take them up on that deal?  It's an easy enough process, simply click the familiar Facebook Connect button.  However, when I clicked the button, something at Hulu went awry.

The new SR5006 and SR6006 from Marantz have been designed to replace the SR7005 flagship from last year.  Both include Ethernet ports that allow you to stream internet radio stations, but more exciting for Apple device owners is the inclusion of AirPlay, which makes pulling audio from an iPhone, iPad or iPod simple.

You can throw out all the fancy numbers you want, you can talk about halved resolutions and flicker and all the other things that make up a picture, but what matters in the end is how good something looks to the average viewer.  According to a new study organized by LG, passive sets are preferred by 80 percent of people. The study, which was carried out by research firm Morpace, matched up LG's 47LW5600 against a Sony KDL-46EX723 and a Samsung UN46D6420 and asked users to watch identical content on each set and select the one that they prefer over the others.

As great a format as Blu-ray is, it can still be difficult to get people on board when their favorite films have yet to be released.  Among those hotly anticipated films, more than a few of them come from director Steven Spielberg. Thankfully, the wait will soon be over for those craving his 1993 masterpiece 'Jurassic Park.'  The original film and its two sequels will be hitting Blu-ray on October 25, 2011.  The films have, of course, been completely remastered and you'll be able to enjoy 7.1 channel surround sound.

Last week, from seemingly out of the blue, the folks at Hulu received a buyout offer from Yahoo.  There's been no disclosure on just how much Yahoo was offering, but it seems to have gotten Hulu's attention.  After rejecting the offer from Yahoo, the folks at Hulu hired themselves a few investment bankers and will be going on sale within the next few weeks. While Hulu itself may not be a big money maker, the opportunities licensing deals and streaming infrastructure open up a world of possibilities to potential buyers.

Budget display manufacturer, Westinghouse, jumped into the 3D pool at CE Week in New York City, with the announcement of its first 3DTV, the 47-inch W47S2TCD.  Unlike most 3D displays on the market, Westinghouse has decided to go with passive glasses display technology, rather than active.  Passive glasses 3DTVs don't offer full 1080p/per eye stereo 3D available with active technology, but both the passive (polarized) glasses and the televisions themselves tend to be more affordable.
