America’s first live 3D hockey game to be broadcasted on iO

Hockey fans that own a 3D TV will be able to watch the Rangers vs. Islanders game at Madison Square Garden live on iO channel 1300 in full 3D. In order to experience the 3D broadcast, you’ll need an HD Scientific Atlantic cable box from Cablevision and a high-quality HDMI 1.3 or 1.4 cable. Don’t forget 3D glasses for each viewer, too!

This marks the beginning of 3D broadcasting, and we’re excited to see how it will evolve. How do you think 3D TV is going to impact the way shows are shot, if at all? Let us know in the comments.

Samsung 3D Blu-Ray Player

Until broadcasting and the PlayStation 3 catches up to 3D technology late this year, you’ll need a 3D Blu-ray player to experience the full 3D experience on your 3D TV. This isn’t your old Blu-ray player; this machine not only supports 3D technology, but apps like Pandora, Netflix, Blockbuster, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and more. You can stream video, play games, and wirelessly access pictures and music from your PC through the built-in Wi-Fi. This player makes you able to turn your 3D setup into your media headquarters.

But back to the Blu-ray playing capabilities: this device has an Ultra Fast Play feature that plays your disc the moment you insert it. The full HD 1080p picture quality, 3D depth and … Read more...

It was such a great way to spend St. Patricks Day!” said @concertqueen to us on Twitter. They know how to work a crowd indeed; … Read more...

Performance Recap: Justin Bieber

Fans lined up early at our P.C. Richard & Son Theater on Monday, even if it meant not seeing his show and just standing next to the building Justin Bieber would soon be in. Many die-hard fans won tickets through our theater site and others were hoping for a glimpse. We were astonished at just how dedicated Justin’s fans are!

Justin held an intimate listening party for his new album “My World 2.0” before the album drops on March 23. He performed Eenie Meenie with a guest appearance by Sean Kingston and Baby. Check out agcheng212‘s fan videos of the performances below:

How To: Choose the Best Computer Processor for You

Our customers always ask us questions about processors when choosing their computer models. A processor is an integral part of your system and is one of the things you should really invest in when choosing a new computer. This guide will help you understand computer processors, learn how to choose one, and give recommendations for your computer usage.

The speed at which it processes this data is measured in gigahertz, and common desktop computer processor speeds range from 2.6 to 3.66 GHz, and laptops/netbooks are usually less than that.
