In case you may not be familiar with VUDU, Wikipedia has an answer. In short, it’s a content provider of movies, shows, and so on. Until now, it was all about buying or renting. Today, VUDU announced free viewing of “thousands” of titles. The only catch is that you will have to watch commercials in exchange. A nice option.
When I was young, a very long time ago, there was a thing called TV. Pretty much the same thing, but the picture is much clearer now. Paid TV, or commercial funded content were the only options back in the day. As it took money to produce decent content, free never really worked out. Turns out, this model still makes sense.
If you thought recent announcements from the competition left DJI behind, think again. Innovative, clever, and very small. It makes the old Phantom look enormous. The guys at DigitalRev give it a go.
GoPro Makes the HERO5 Official, as well as the promised Karma quad. It’s like a drone and a handheld stabilizer in one. Surprisingly modest price for what it offers. DJI must be somewhat annoyed to say the least.

Netflix just released an alternative to Speedtest.net called Fast.com. This is pretty clearly an effort to address claims that some providers are throttling traffic. I am quite fortunate to live where the fiber is, so I sure can’t complain about my result. It was however quite a bit lower than the claimed 1 gigabit per second, and a good bit less that Speedtest.net results of 780mbps.
