The Ten Reasons Why Streaming is Better than DVD

Written on June 12, 2011 by Japhet Writ

Comments Off

As technology - and Internet in particular - rapidly shifts the way people entertain themselves, streaming is one big reason why DVD will soon cease.

For the last 30 years, technology has advanced more rapidly than at any other point in the history. While people’s ability to connect increases, the world’s size decreases. It’s either you acknowledge or blame it on the Internet.

The Internet converts all of our media and entertainment into digital files, and stores it somewhere. It is then streamed or transferred to wherever people are and when they want it. The Internet has changed the way people communicate and access content, and it has revolutionized how people define entertainment. And that makes streaming the new media format.

In case you’re still not convinced, All We Like is giving you ten reasons why streaming is the new DVD.

New York Times: Out in Print in the Future

Written on September 09, 2010 by B Waldorf

The Gray Lady will sooner or later be just a memory in our hands.

The Gray Lady will somehow become a softcopy.

During a recent conference, The New York Times publisher and chairman Arthur Sulzberger Jr. said that they are expecting that the newspaper wouldn’t be a physical paper.

“We will stop printing the New York Times sometime in the future, date TBD,” he told the attendees of the International Newsroom Summit.

The statement is so definite that negative reactions were raised and made others to conclude that this is an obvious conclusion of the struggles in traditional media.

As the newspaper circulation falls, the newspaper revenues fall too. The traditional hard copy of news is in trouble and the commodity isn’t going anywhere.

The statement acknowledges this fact, but we see it as a commitment to innovate a new cultural way to reach out to the readers and profit from data and news gathering and reporting it.

Sulzberger noted at the conference, “Our pursuit of the pay model is a step in the right direction for us. We believe that serious media organizations must start to collect additional revenue from their readers… information is less and less yearning to be free.”

The NYTimes.com toyed with a paywall-type mode called TimesSelect way back 2008. The change wasn’t that good but the experiment is educational as it seems.

“If we discover that we’ve tried something that’s not working, we could change it,” he said.

We’ll surely miss New York Times.

Facebook Now Owns Chai Labs

Written on August 16, 2010 by Japhet Writ

In yet another small acquisition, Facebook just snap up Chai Labs from its founder -- Gokul Rajaram. Something new is definitely coming to the social networking site, and the media will definitely benefit from it.

Facebook just bought Chai Labs, and though no price was confirmed, it’s likely to be around $10 million and more on acquiring talents. Based on Mountain View, California, Chai Labs is described as a technology platform that enables publishers to customize and launch scalable and search friendly sites. Given the fact that Facebook has been trying to work with media rather than compete with them, it makes sense for powerful social network to acquire something that has the ability to help publishers to create, store and deliver content.

Access Mac Media with Your PlayStation3

Written on July 30, 2010 by Japhet Writ

You can now access your media on Mac via PS3 with a breeze. Thanks to Yazsoft's newest technology called Playback. Now, Mac users can have a UPnP server of their own.

Life just got easier for Mac users who wants to access media with their PlayStation 3. One of PS3’s many features is the ability to access the media like photo, video and music from other devices, with the help of Universal Plug and Play (UPnP). PS3 recognizes a Windows PC instantly so so it’s not a big problem anymore. On the other hand though, Mac users find it difficult to get a UPnP server set up for the console to recognize. Good things there’s Yazsoft’s Playback.




The application automatically integrates with your media applications — like iTunes, iPhoto and Aperture — after you download and run Playback for the first time. Playback sets up a UPnP server, which your PS3 can connect to straight away, with just a simple click of the Start button.
