What you should know about the Pixel and Pixel XL Phones from Google

Tablet/Phone Reviews, VR Headset
To understand how the Pixel is different, we need to take a brief sidetrack to the Nexus line. The Pixel phone line is a replacement for the previous Nexus phone series. Nexus phones were made by other phone manufacturers as example devices for new Android releases, and unlike the Pixel, the joint branding was visible on the device. The Nexus 6P, for example, is branded as a Huawei phone, and Google extended the partnership into letting device makers influence some of the design decisions. Nexus phones were sold unlocked (you could use them with any carrier for US devices) and usually without a phone contract. Generally, Nexus phones came with both a high-end model and a more inexpensive model. The Pixel line was introduced as two sizes of what is essentially the same high-end phone. P...

View 3D Star Wars Blu-ray Disc Movies on Gear VR with Galaxy S7 Edge

Star Wars - The Force Awakens 3D Ultimate Collector's Edition Blu-ray When I went to my local cinema with my friend to see The Force Awakens, I forgo-ed the option of seeing 3D as I wanted to experience it 2D, the way I had with all the previous Star Wars films.

Crop the Blu-ray 2.4:1 anamorphic image to fit for 16:9 displays

Blu-ray, TV
As we all know most BD movies are released in 2.4:1 aspect ratio, which is also known as Panavision or CinemaScope. A popular aspect ratio for major movie releases. Historically, this aspect ratio was actually 2.35:1, but it switched to 2.39:1 in the 1970's. It is also commonly rounded up to 2.40:1. Therefore you may see any of these three versions recorded on the Blu-ray or DVD box - although they are essentially the same thing. The 4:3 television will have huge black bars at the top and bottom, and the movie will be that small colourful bit somewhere in the middle! Again, as with the previous aspect ratios, zooming in can reduce the bars but it will also make the image less-defined and cause a loss of the picture at either side. 2.39:1 Image on a 4:3 TV 2.39:1 Image on a 1...

Bypassing current Blu-ray Region Codes for Playing

Region Code
Blu-ray Disc Region Coding Blu-ray has instituted a Region Coding scheme, however, it is more logical than current DVD Region Codes. For Blu-ray Discs, there are three regions, designated as follows: Region A: U.S., Japan, Latin America, East Asia (except China). Region B: Europe, Africa, Australia, New Zealand Region C: China, Russia, India, Remaining countries.

In this case, then you may be able to play a non-region coded disc that is released in another area of the World. Well, keep in mind that many Blu-ray Discs also contain standard resolution supplementary materials (such as making of, interviews, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, etc...) t...
