Just as computers have evolved since their inception, TVs have come a long way in the past 20 years. I’m not talking about the picture quality (although that’s also improved), but the content variety and how it’s delivered. Cable, Dish Network, and the Internet have radically changed the way we watch TV, but there are these little boxes that are going to set a new standard.

Multiple sources have been touting that Nintendo is about to reveal its next console at E3 2011. In fact, Nintendo is already showing off the device to publishers in order to give them plenty of time for developing titles. Launch date might be early 2012.
Facebook's new "Deals" program
Wednesday, April 27, 2011 by cyberacoustics
Facebook has launched their new “Deals” feature to compete with Groupon. The Deals feature is currently limited to only five US cities - San Francisco, Austin, Dallas, Atlanta, and San Diego. Facebook revealed to The New York Times that the local offers made to Deals users will be delivered via email and will also appear in users’ news feeds on their Facebook page.
Facebook says its primary goal with Deals is to share popular experiences with your friends that are on Facebook. By jumping on a deal using Facebook, you can easily share it with your friends and discover new things together.
With Facebook’s already impressive penetration in people’s homes, Deals may become the de facto solution for one-stop deal shopping online. Now, it just needs to come to the Portland area, and I can try it out for myself.
