It's nice when branding is consistent, isn't it? You can take confidence when you buy a device that says "Thunderbolt 3" because you know it will support all of the Thunderbolt 3 features. Likewise when you purchase a display device with DisplayPort connections—the DisplayPort version is all you really need to know to... Read more...

A new standard is set to allow native HDMI output for devices with USB Type-C connectors. It could prove to be a great feature as more smartphones, notebooks, 2-in-1s, and tablet devices adopt the next generation USB interface and ultimately enable another option for these devices to act as media streamers or for big...

Move over, Intel Compute Stick; there’s a new sheriff in town in the miniature PC realm. Lenovo today pulled the wraps off its ideacentre Stick 300 which manages to cram an Intel Atom processor into a stick that measure just 3.94-inches x 1.5-inches x 0.59-inches. The minuscule ideacentre Stick 300 is powered by an... Read more...
We first got an official look at the Intel Compute Stick earlier this year, at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. In one of those “But wait! There’s more!” kind of moments common at trade shows, one of the good folks at Intel that was previously showing off a few upcoming NUC systems pulled a tiny device from his... Read more...
Many of us are no doubt frustrated with our televisions, convinced that they simply aren't contributing enough to earn their keep, acting only as passive entertainment and information delivery conduits and occasionally as defacto babysitters for our kids (or defacto — and never argumentative — friends for ourselves)...

Google's Chromecast took a big step deeper into the mainstream with its recent 27946 firmware update, adding the ability to pause and resume video playback via your television remote.

MHL connectors have enabled advanced smartphones to both receive a charge as well as transmit 1080p video through the same USB cable for some time now, but as ever, technological progress is pushing things a bit more. This week, MHL has developed an Alternate Mode for the USB Type-C specification, which enables it to... Read more...
Intel doesn't typically slip new products into the retail sector on the down low, but for whatever reason, that's what the Santa Clara chip maker decided to do with its Meegopad Windows HDMI TV stick. Editor's Update, 10/23/14: It turns out this is not an official Intel-branded product but just a manufacturing... Read more...
This is one of those announcements that's so odd, I'm still trying to figure out if it works out to a positive. I'm fairly certain it does. So as you likely know, the Xbox One has both HDMI-in and HDMI-out capability. The point of HDMI-in is to allow you to hook up a cable box, with output then running from the Xbox... Read more...
Call it a year delayed or fashionably late, either way we now have an official HDMI Version 2.0 specification. It's the first HDMI specification to be developed by the HDMI Forum and it offers a significant increase in bandwidth (up to 18Gbps, compared to 10Gbps for HDMI 1.4) so that it can support features like the...

Now that CES is over, we're left with one major thought: when are those gorgeous 4K HDTVs hitting the market? It's clear that 4K is going to be the next major leap in high-definition television, and it's likely that many with decade-old HDTVs will soon be tempted to update those. But in order to do so, a lot of other... Read more...
One thing you might run into when shopping value oriented parts is that the manufacturers often cut corners to keep the price tag down. It comes with the territory. Along those lines, the idea behind Gigabyte's new HD motherboard series is to offer budget DIY home theater PC (HTPC) builders a line of inexpensive mobos... Read more...
Unlike some other stands (we're looking at you, microUSB), MHL hasn't exactly taken off in the same way. It's out there, sure, but it's hardly a household name.
