New H.265 Video Format Could Bring 4K To Broadband Connections [Updates]

The International Telecommunication Union (ITU) announced its approval of the H.265 video format standard on Friday. The new codec may bring 4K video to broadband and also limit bandwidth usage for HD streaming, offering both higher resolution video and lower data use. H.265 video is designed to divide bandwidth usage in half.

Tried And Tested: 3 Gamification Tools That Try To Make Your Life Better

I’m a big fan of gamification, truth be told. I’d even go so far as to say our entire society should be gamified, with pleasures in life reserved as rewards those who actually contribute. Apparently that makes me a communist or something. But I digress; I’ve tried a variety of gamified systems for fitness and generally “getting things done”, and here’s how it worked out.

Sharing photos is one of the most common things we do online. If once upon a time we could show our memories only to those we actually met in person, today it’s super easy to share every little snapshot we take with the world. It’s so easy, in fact, that it’s sometimes hard to choose how to do it exactly.

SoundControl Beta Offers Easy Pandora Control In The Browser [Chrome]

If you’re not yet using Pandora, I don’t think you’re getting the most out of music. Pandora is by far the easiest and the best way to stream music online. Take it to the desktop, on your phone, or in your car. Pandora has helped me stumble across artists I’d have never heard of before and has turned the task of listening to music that I want to hear into something as simple as clicking the play button.

How To Use Your WiiMote As A Controller For Your Android Device

Use your WiiMote as a gamepad for your Android tablet or phone. Touch screens are great for some games, but for others you just need tactile response. So, if you prefer to do your gaming on an Android device I highly recommend the free app WiiMote Controller. It’s easy to set up, and mimics an Android keyboard – so it works with most games.
