TiVo BOLT’s SkipMode feature rolling out to Roamio DVRs

TiVo BOLT’s SkipMode feature rolling out to Roamio DVRs

Video streaming might be all the fad these days, but majority of TV viewers still get their content via traditional means, like broadcast and cable. Sadly, not everybody has the luxury to watch their favorite shows right then and there. DVRs have long existed to remedy that, but, unfortunately, they do record everything. They are, however, getting smarter, at least after the fact. TiVo's SkipMode feature, for example, lets you get to the content your really want and skip the ones that you don't, which is a nice way of calling "ads".

Teens react to Windows 95: “It looks so dull and ancient.”

Teens react to Windows 95: “It looks so dull and ancient.”

Prepare to feel old, again. There’s another ‘Teens react’ video, and this time the kids are being introduced to Windows 95. The troubles and criticisms are quick to start: it takes a long time to boot up, for example, so long you could go get yourself a snack while waiting.

The best way to show VR to anyone

The best way to show VR to anyone

A developer by the name Dylan Fitterer has released a demo video for his upcoming Virtual Reality game "Audioshield", and with it, the best way to watch. While we've wrestled with how to depict VR to the masses - mostly from an app developer's point of view - Fitterer seems to have figured it out. No more making the VR gamer look like a goon. No more separating the viewer from the experience. This demo uses a silhouette to show the game. This demo is the missing link.

DIY Centriphone whips iPhone around your head on a string

DIY Centriphone whips iPhone around your head on a string

Possibly the most insane iPhone accessory ever made for the accident-prone is this: the Centriphone. We saw the results of this contraption in action not too long ago - it creates a sort of bullet-time video using the slow-motion capabilities of the iPhone or GoPro camera being flung around in a circle. Super slow motion and movement of the camera create a fantastic result - and one that's now entirely DIY and open source. Today we have the making-of video and instructions.

YouTube gets smart blurring tool that follows your subject

Sometimes when you're shooting a video, there are background objects or people that you don't necessarily want to show. If you notice this during shooting, you might be able to frame your shot to exclude such things, but that isn't always possible. This means that later on in post, you'll need to blur it out. But now YouTube is going to make that process a bit easier for you.

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

Doctor Who is coming to Amazon Prime

This hasn't been a great year for Doctor Who fans. It's the first time since the series was rebooted that will get no new episodes, save for the Christmas Special. It'll be sometime in 2017 before we see regular episodes return, and as a kicker, the show was pulled from both Netflix and Hulu. This means that it is currently not streaming anywhere that's accessible in the US. But that's about to change.
