3D High Speed HDMI Cable with Ethernet

| Jan 16, 2012
Do you still remember the times when for a normal HDMI cable you had to pay 50 bucks? And this for a basic cable, that could do only HDMI. For sure, that was an important piece of your HD setup - this cable made High Definition video and audio possible, so you could enjoy your 720p or 1080 HDTV. So everyone thought 50 bucks is OK.

A lot of good things happened in between, now you can buy a good HDMI cable with less than

Hunger Games - the 3D movie

Hunger Games 3D Movie
Frankly I was expecting that, shortly after I read the first Hunger Games book. A great movie can come out of this book. Then I read the last two Hunger Games books, Catching Fire and Mockingjay, written so vividly from Suzanne Collins. Still the same strong feeling, soon I will see one or more Hunger Games movies.

And I was right, starting March 23, the first Hunger Games movie will be running

The Avengers 3D - the greatest Marvel/Disney blockbuster

| Jan 9, 2012
Do you agree with me that the new Marvel movie The Avengers will be the most awaited monster hit 3D movie of 2012?

It looks like Marvel put together the coolest team of heroes: Thor, Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk, and I don't know who Scarlett Johansson is supposed to be.

My personal favorite Samuel L. Jackson looks also very dangerous as Nick Fury - so the fun will be guaranteed.

And why are all these cool powerful heroes together? Supposedly to fight Loki, the villain from Thor. So many against only one? Good question - I guess we will find out when we see the movie.

You might also ask, why only these heroes and not Spiderman or X-Men? you will laugh but it's simple - Marvel doesn't own the rights for these characters.

It's actually a pretty smart idea when you think about it, to combine all those movies, stories and characters - and even to interconnect and plant some stories from one movie in the other movies. This definitely creates a sense of authenticity and for sure builds the pressure and suspense for all future sequels of those movies.

So The Avengers is predestined to be an instant hit, especially for all 3D cinemas, but also for home use - so make sure you have your 3D TV ready for the spectacular action and fight scenes in the Avengers.

Start: April 2012
Director: Joss Whedon
Stars: Robert Downey Jr., Chris Evans, Samuel l. Jackson, Scarlett Johansson, Chris Hemsworth


And I still think Captain America costume is lame, luckily he still has his vibranium shield...

Cars 2 3D Blu-ray

| Jan 8, 2012
We all know the first Cars movie, how many times we've seen it? especially if you have kids you can't miss this movie, it's a classic.

The second part "Cars 2" comes also in 3D - so very cool if you have a 3D capable HDTV and 3D Blu-ray Player.

The story is a bit different - there is a lot of action - secret agent and espionage stuff and of course a lot of racing with Lightning McQueen (voice by Owen Wilson), this time against a very charming italian. The guys from Pixar really took their time creating very exact replicas of locations in Tokyo, London, Paris and the italian Riviera, plus some very funny new characters - that add a lot to the movie.


The main idea of Cars 2 is for the viewers to have a lot of fun watching. And watching Cars 2 in 3D can only double the fun - especially the races are extraordinarily vivid.

To own Cars 2 for you and your kids is a no-brainer. It's that kind of movie that you can watch over and over again without getting bored. You can get it here:

3D without Glasses

| Jan 7, 2012
what you all think about the new 3D without glasses technology?
playing with my son's Nintendo 3D and having the chance to preview and test a 3D TV without glasses, gave me a pretty good idea how great this new technology is and how popular it can become in the next years.

To me, it's not only about 3D movies - but the gaming business will rock if they will succeed to promote a 3D gaming console that can allow viewing the three-dimensional image without needing a pair of glasses.

Think about playing "call of duty", fully immersed into the gaming environment. Of course the main problem will be dealing with the changing image focus - if you will do sudden moves, with your eyes or with your body.
For some of us, this won't be a real problem, the hardcore gamers have a very good couch from where they can handle the game very efficiently.

For movies - watching without glasses is the standard setting anyway - so having the 3D image directly in front of our eyes can give us a more complete movie experience.

3D without Glasses


The prices for these new 3D TV Sets are still very experimental and high. But if this will become a trend and people will start buying - then normally the prices will go down enough to make it available for the mass consumers.

Easier you can buy 3D TVs without Glasses as a computer monitor. for instance the new glasses free LG DX2500 3D TV. Read more about it!
