It’s time to cut the chord for good as Sling TV makes its way to the USA. Meanwhile, OnePlus brings wider availability of the One and Corning announced a better alternative for Sapphire displays.
I think we can all agree that opting for cable providers has been about the only option for getting quality TV so far. Should this be the case? DEfinitely not, and this is why we were so excited about Sling TV when it was shown at CES.
This service brings you streamed live TV for only $20 a month (there are extra packages if you wish to get more channels). The basic subscription includes channels like ESPN, CNN, TNT, The Food Network and more. And now USA residents can join in without an invite!
As it goes with streaming services, you get access to Sling TV from all your devices. Currently, Android, iOS, Windows, Mac and Roku players are supported. Devices like the Amazon Fire TV, Xbox One and Nexus Player are also on the list to get support.
Opinion: You can check out Sling TV by signing up for the 7-day trial, so don’t miss your chance! I am actually quite stoked about Sling TV, as I have been wanting to dump my cable subscription for a while. Will you do the same?
Tired of looking for an invite to buy a OnePlus One? Today is your lucky day! OnePlus has just announced that they will hold open sales every single Tuesday at 12 AM PST. Yes – every… single… Tuesday.
This will be the norm until further notice, but OnePlus is quick to let us know the invite system is not really dead. You can still use ut during the remaining 6 days of the week. The difference is that now we have much more open availability.
Opinion: Is anyone signing up for a OnePlus One tomorrow? This is great news for OnePlus One fans!
Why did Apple leave Corning’s Gorilla Glass in exchange for Sapphire displays? This was a move that costed Corning quite a bit of money, but there was a reason behind it. As it stands, sapphire glass stands as the best solution in terms of scratch resistance.
Gorilla Glass may be better at protecting against drops, but we all know avoiding scratches is very important. This is why Corning has announced a brand new type of glass. So far they call it Project Phire, and it is said to be a material that is as strong as Gorilla Glass, yet as scratch resistant as sapphire glass.
Opinion: Details on the material and its availability are still unknown, but we should hear more about it soon. All we know is that Corning will make Project Phire available “later in the year”.
