I'm Addicted to Binge-Watching TV, and I'm Not Sorry

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 CBC Wants to Cancel Your Favourite Shows

The truth is that traditional radio and TV have not been replaced by the internet or other new technologies but instead have maintained their central role in our lives. Traditional TV viewing levels have, if anything, increased slightly in recent years. This is partly the result of improvements in picture quality (HDTV) and the inherent quality of programming.

It's All Geek To Me: Surprise! Everything You Own is a Lie!

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?

Now count how many of those things you would have full and legal access to without an Internet connection.

The 10 Most Infamous Real-Life Backdoor Political Deals

Sometimes it isn't the government that's to blame for back door deals. Back in 1869, two wily financiers, Jay Gould and James Fisk, thought they could outsmart the government and corner the gold market, but were foiled by the administration. Gould and Fisk tried to buy massive amounts of gold at a low price and then sell high using insider information.
The way we watch movies is changing, and Netflix is at the vanguard of this change. Since entering the Canadian market, the over-the-top movie and TV delivery service has given Canada's major telcos a run for their money, as they compete for viewers with their on-demand TV and movie services. Despite complaints by many that Netflix Canada doesn't have the same wide selection as its U.S. counterpart, the service has been making significant inroads in establishing itself on this side of the border. So who will win the great battle between over-the-top providers like Netflix and telcos like Rogers and Shaw? Only time will tell.
