Bingeing is one of the more popular ways to watch TV these days. Might explain why I watched the entire second season of Orange Is the New Black in just two short days. Binge-watching is not all fun and games -- they don't call it a marathon for nothing. But I think it's the best way to watch TV, especially for a show you love. Here's why.
The truth is that traditional radio and TV have not been replaced by the internet or other new technologies but instead have maintained their central role in our lives.

There are few things worse in this world than our favourite TV shows getting cancelled. You get that icky feeling like you can't breathe and you're not sure you can go on with your life. Sometimes you have closure, sometimes you don't. Either way, we've rounded up a list of shows that we wish -- nay, DEMAND -- return to our lives.
It's time to talk about Digital Distribution, and how it's made renters of us all. How many of your digital belongings do you actually own? Write out a list of the shows and movies you've watched, the eBooks you've read, the games and apps you've played, and the music you've listened to in the last week. Now count how many of those things you would have full and legal access to without an Internet connection.
Sometimes it isn't the government that's to blame for back door deals.

Gould and Fisk tried to buy massive amounts of gold at a low price and then sell high using insider information.
