    Both Netflix and Amazon stream in 4K. Cameras like the Sony a7S and the Panasonic Lumix GH4 can shoot in 4K. Even smartphones have been getting in on the act, with handsets like the LG G Pro 2 and Sony Xperia Z2 capable of recording 4K video. So with the amount of 4K content available increasing every day, you may have been thinking about buying a 4K set so you too can bask in the glow of 3,840 x 2,160 resolution. But 4K sets don't come cheap, and you're going to want to do a bit of research before dropping that much cash. While we don't really review televisions here at Engadget, we've done…

    As the VoIP industry has grown in both importance and economic potential, unfortunately this has also resulted in fraud incidents becoming more frequent and damaging. As such, fraud is a very expensive problem for the industry and needs to be combatted. Consequently, many anti-fraud websites and networks have been established to report fraud and to warn others against rogue operators. VoIP forums and social networks like LinkedIn are flooded with topics from users devoted to companies accused of non-payment and other fraudulent activity. However, not all of these media are moderated and…

    A tricked-out version of YouTube offering exclusive content might prove lucrative bait for Google to lure some of its users deeper into its digital video and music services.YouTube appears to be readying a paid premium music service that would cost US$9.99 a month, called YouTube Music Key.

    Uber has hired David Plouffe, a former campaign manager for President Obama with deep ties to the White House, to help it enter new markets and bolster its fight against taxi competitors. Plouffe managed President Obama’s 2008 campaign and then served as an outside adviser to the president. In 2011, when top White House adviser David Axelrod resigned, Plouffe replaced him. Uber now operates in around 170 cities worldwide but has faced regulatory challenges from governments questioning the safety of its service and its legality.

    Microsoft bumped up its cloud storage increasing it from 20 GB to 1 TB for every Office 365 user. It also increased its Microsoft OneDrive from 7 GB to 15 GB. According to Microsoft’s data, out of every four people, three have storage of less than 15 GB on their PC.

  • Google Drive for Work Takes on Dropbox with Unlimited Storage for $10 Monthly

    Antony Maina
    14 Jul 2014 | 3:56 am
    For the first time ever, an unlimited storage has been offered by a cloud file storage service at entry level prices. Google has released the much anticipated Google Drive for Work which presents unlimited storage for as little as US$10 monthly. Since a Google Drive for Work account with less than five users is limited to 1TB storage as per user, it means that a business may spend up to $50. The incorporation of Quickoffice into the newly launched Drive grants a user the ability to not only open a Microsoft document, but also make changes to it in its innate format is a major drawcard.

  • Time Warner Cable is charging Netflix for a direct connection too

    Richard Lawler
    19 Aug 2014 | 3:55 pm
    Comcast, then Verizon, AT&T and now Time Warner Cable. That's the list of ISPs that have less-than-politely declined Netflix's free OpenConnect setup, and instead decided they'll take a payment from the streaming service in exchange for connecting its network directly to theirs. Time Warner cable confirmed the deal to Gigaom, saying it was reached in June and implemented this month. Netflix CEO Reed Hastings just published an essay today in Wired as a part of its 'Save the Net" series railing against just this sort of pay-to-play system, which he's previously said undermines the…

  • Broadband is more important to Americans than cable

    Daniel Cooper
    19 Aug 2014 | 8:36 am
    In the same way that WhatsApp has caused the number of text messages to fall, it looks as if cable is now less important than broadband in American homes. For the first time, the number of households that pay for a high speed internet connection has exceeded those who get their daily fix of news from CNN. The stats come from TV-industry analysts Leichtman Research, which is claiming that there are 49,915,000 broadband users in the country, squeaking ahead of the 49,910,000 who subscribe to cable TV. Naturally, we're sure that almost all of those people are paying for both services right now,…

    Looks like you won't have to wait for Mozilla's streaming dongle to stream from Firefox: the browser's nightly Android test build now supports Chromecast natively. Mozilla's Lucas Rocha casually mentioned the new feature on his Google+ page and, sure enough, if you download the latest build it's there - hidden under the tools section as "mirror tab." The feature works, but it's early: in our tests the mirrored tab was more than five seconds behind the handset, and was prone to crashing. Want to try it for yourself?
