Netflix's 18% price hike shows it got too comfortable being the only game in town, and it could be a costly mistake (NFLX, DIS, T, CMCSA)

Netflix's price hike, announced Tuesday, could hurt the company eventually, if not immediately, Wedbush analyst Michael Pachter said. Customers may not notice it right away, but may pay more attention later this year when Disney launches a rival service with movies and shows that are no longer on Netflix, he said. Few consumers are likely to choose more than one pure streaming service, and Netflix's price hike has left it vulnerable to price competition, he added. Netflix's price hike may com...

Listen to Hi-def Music While Listening to the World Around You

Audio cancelation is nice. It’s nice, however, indoors. Step outdoors and audio cancelation can be a dangerous thing. I remember almost getting hit by a bus ten years ago because I had headphones on, and didn’t hear the massive vehicle heading towards me. That’s where immersive, isolated audio can be somewhat of a drawback. What’s the solution? A pair of headphones that have the ability to adapt to where you wear them.That’s what the HB-V70 are. A pair of around-ear headphones that allow you t...

This New Instrument Reimagines the Infamous Talkbox

Bosko Kante is a grammy-winning artist, producer and most recently, innovator. He and his wife Maya Kante co-founded Electrospit and co-created the ESX-1, a tubeless talkbox designed to liberate an artistic expression with mobility, style, freedom and innovation. The traditional talkbox is to thank for the famous hook that rises and falls like west coast hills at the beginning of 2pac and Dre's "California Love."

The #10YearChallenge Is Harder on Women Than You Think

One of the first internet challenges to go viral this year on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is #HowHardDidAgingHitYou, or the #10YearChallenge. The challenge requires users to share a photo from 10 years ago side-by-side with a current photo.
