Rank #4: Podcast #907: Sevenhugs Smart Remote Review

Podcast cover
Read more
We were asked by a listener to take a look at the Sevenhugs Smart Remote ($199 without contextual awareness and $299 with) a few weeks back. The makers of the remote call it “The world’s smartest and easiest to use remote control. Stop wrestling with remotes and apps and simplify how you control your entire home.” That’s quite a statement in a world that has plenty of smart remotes. The question is whether that is a true statement or not. There is a video that goes along with this review that will provide much more context on our youtube channel (The HT Guys)

Rank #7: Podcast #840: Real Life OLED Burn In Test

Podcast cover
Read more
Walking through a large electronics store the other day something caught our eye on one of their OLED display televisions. While you’d like to hope it was the vivid, realistic images on screen, it wasn’t. It was the obvious burn-in. And it was bad. You could clearly see a shadow of the bottom logo bar / ticker from content they must use regularly peeking through what would have otherwise been a stellar video presentation. The burn-in scare was one of the factors that ultimately led to the demise of plasma televisions. Will burn-in be the demise of OLED?

We realized recently how much we used to talk about surround sound, why it matters, why people should really spring for it if they don't have it. But we don't much anymore. We just assume everyone has it or everyone knows about it now. But if you don't, you really should. You don't know what you're missing until you try it.
