Fascinating tech; I can't wait for some enterprising soul to stick a web front-end on it so I can send off some parts for printing.

YouTube’s head of music confirms YouTube Red and Google Play Music will merge to create a new service

1 Comment and 2 Shares

YouTube's head of music confirmed that the company is planning on merging its Google Play Music service with YouTube Red to create a new streaming offering. During a panel session for the New Music Seminar conference in New York, Lyor Cohen stated that the company needed to merge the two services to help educate consumers and bring in new subscribers.

“The important thing is combining YouTube Red and Google Play Music, and having one offering,” Cohen said when asked about why YouTube Red isn’t more popular with music users. He didn’t address whether or not the two apps would merge — but it seems very unlikely.

The first Apple-compatible cochlear implant sound processor was announced today

1 Comment

Apple and hearing assistance company Cochlear have teamed up to launch the first iPhone-compatible cochlear implant sound processor. The processor will accompany an implant. (The processor isn't what’s implanted inside the body; it's what you see outside and what gathers audio to then send to the implant.)

Lots of Apple-compatible hearing products already exist. Apple lists them all on its "Made for iPhone hearing aids" page. These devices directly pair with an iOS device (running iOS 7 or later) over Bluetooth to receive audio, and users can control their hearing aids from their phone's accessibility settings. Most have compatible apps, like Cochlear, but they aren't necessary for using the device. Cochlear's app features a "Find My...

Hilarious New Trailer For Seth MacFarlane's STAR TREK Parody Series THE ORVILLE

1 Comment

Fox has released a new trailer for their upcoming new sci-fi comedy series The Orville. The series comes from Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane and it's basically a hilarious looking Star Trek parody reminiscent of Galaxy Quest. This is the trailer that was actually screened at Comic-Con this past weekend. The show looks like it's going to be a blast and I'm looking forward to checking it out.

THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one-hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. Its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life.

The ensemble series stars MacFarlane as the ship’s Commanding Officer and Adrianne Palicki as his ex-wife, who’s assigned as his First Officer. Additional cast members include Penny Johnson Jerald, Scott Grimes, Peter Macon, Halston Sage, J Lee, Mark Jackson and Chad L. Coleman.

The pilot episode was written by MacFarlane and directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau, who is also an executive producer. 

The Orville will premiere Sunday, September 10th on Fox.
