Star Wars Squadrons gets 4K, 120fps on Xbox Series X only

Star Wars Squadrons gets 4K, 120fps on Xbox Series X only

New console hardware almost always means more power. That power, however, is lost if the software, that is, games, don't take advantage of it. That naturally requires releasing new titles and updating old ones that exploit all that new processing muscle, which is what EA is doing for Star Wars Squadrons running on next-gen, actually now current-gen, hardware. But just as these new consoles aren't exactly equal, neither are these next-gen improvements that could leave some feeling a bit jealous.

Apple TV 4K finally gets YouTube 4K with some caveats

Apple TV 4K finally gets YouTube 4K with some caveats

The entertainment industry is seemingly pushing 4K content and supporting hardware to consumers' consciousness but it doesn't seem like a concerted effort either. 4K-capable hardware sometimes has no access to 4K content or 4K content is blocked by additional hardware requirements beyond 4K processing. The situation is particularly messy on Apple's platform when it comes to YouTube's 4K streaming but at least one of those pain points has finally disappeared but with a catch or two.

Netflix 4K streaming on macOS Big Sur to require a T2 security chip

Netflix 4K streaming on macOS Big Sur to require a T2 security chip

Content providers and pirates have always been playing a game of cat and mouse with no clear winner in sight. The latest volley from content providers is pretty much the streaming market we now all use, keeping the actual content away from consumers' hands. Of course, there are still DRM technologies used in conjunction and Netflix will reportedly take the next step by limiting its 4K streaming to a very limited number of Macs.

Fan remasters 1941 Superman cartoon in 4K using free software

Fan remasters 1941 Superman cartoon in 4K using free software

We've seen a number of fan-remastered classics over the past few years, the majority of which revolve around TV shows from the late '80s through the 1990s, as well as historic footage. The latest remaster is different -- it involves the classic Superman cartoon from the 1940s, one that, quite obviously, doesn't look very good on modern televisions in its original resolution.

Disney’s ‘The Empire Strikes Back’ 4K theater re-release plan canceled

Disney has decided to skip a previously revealed plan to debut a 4K version of the Star Wars movie The Empire Strikes Back in theaters, according to a new report.

The big change here is the resolution, however, not the re-release plans.

While not exactly getting into smart TV territory, LG's latest lineup of OLED and LCD TVs promise high-end features to meet every kind of use case while looking good floating on your wall, too.

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

Insta360 ONE R is a modular action cam with interchangeable lens mods

360-degree videos have become fashionable these days, even without the virtual reality factor, because of how they enable recording everything for manual editing and cutting later. Due to size constraints, sensors in most 360 cameras are often less than what you could get if there was only one sensor pointing in one direction. This forces consumers to make an upfront choice about what to buy or what to use for a specific occasion. What if you didn't have to choose? What if you could have all of those and switch between them at a moment's notice like you would switch lenses on a regular camera? That is exactly what Insta360 is promising with the Insta360 ONE R, delivering a 360-degree lens, a 4K wide-angle lens, and a 1-inch Wide-Angle sensor all in one bundle.
