  • Miss Canada lashes out at Beijing after contest snub

    A Canadian beauty queen lashed out at Beijing on Friday, saying she was barred from boarding a flight from Hong Kong to China to compete in a pageant because of her human rights activism. Chinese-born Anastasia Lin, a 25-year-old actress crowned Miss World Canada in May, said that China was blocking her from travelling to the seaside resort city of Sanya for the Miss World contest. Lin, who told AFP late Thursday that Chinese authorities were suppressing people who "dare to speak their minds", was speaking from Hong Kong's international airport where she was blocked from taking a flight bound for mainland China.

  • Don’t buy that cheap 1080p TV! Here’s why it’s finally time to go 4K

    Sure, 1080p TVs still have their place — in your bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom, maybe — but their reign over the living room is coming to a close. If you’re looking to replace one of your home’s go-to televisions and you’ve been on the fence wondering which way to go, let us make it simple for you: Jump down on the side of a 4K Ultra HD TV. All the excuses are gone, all the exceptions, null, all the arguments, moot. Manufacturers plotted to phase out 1080p TVs years ago, and with recent holiday pricing announced, we’ve now turned that corner. You really should buy a 4K UHD TV. Still need convincing? Good! You’re doing your research! Here’s what you need to know. 4K UHD TVs are affordable now Remember the laugh-out-loud moments we had over the inconceivably high price tags the first 4K UHD TVs came out with? Sony with its $25,000 85-incher? Samsung’s $40,000 84-incher? No? Then please enjoy these Amazon reviews to jostle your memory whilst tickling your funny bone (come on, even George Takei had a few chuckles over these). Related: These are the best TVs under $1,000 Indeed, 4K UHD TVs started out (almost) hilariously expensive, but in just a few short years they became downright reasonable. In fact, 4K UHD TVs dominate our Best TVs under $1,000 list right now. But are these chintzy, stripped-down TVs? Au contraire! All the good TVs are 4K UHD When a no-name brand comes out of left field with a 55-inch 4K UHD TV priced below $1,000 while its big-name competitors are charging at least seven times that much, you should be suspicious. But that’s not the situation we’re looking at today. Now, all the big-name manufacturers are competing for your 4K dollars with affordable models. When top brands compete, the consumer wins. But here’s the clincher: Manufacturers want to phase out 1080p TVs — right or wrong, that’s what they’re doing — and they are choosing to put their best tech into 4K UHD TVs,  not into 1080p TVs. Samsung 4K SUHD JS9500 Series Bill Roberson/Digital Trends There’s a saying among TV experts that rings  mostly  true: It’s not the panel, it’s the processing. Meaning: the exact same LCD panel can be used in two televisions, but one will look remarkably better than the other because of superior video processing. That’s still true today, but now manufacturers have more advanced backlighting systems, color enhancement technologies, High Dynamic Range processing, a new HDMI specification, and more — all of which make a tremendous difference in picture quality. But none of the cutting-edge stuff is going into 1080p TVs any more. Certainly, there are still some solid 1080p TVs out there, and they will look good for years to come. But if you want a great  TV capable of taking advantage of all the latest video content — from streaming 4K UHD titles to the coming Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc format– you’re going to need a 4K UHD TV. TVs are an investment. So invest! As we mentioned at the beginning of this article, there are places where a 1080p TV still makes sense — you don’t need a 42-inch 4K TV for your bathroom (unless you actually do, in which case: congratulations). But if we’re talking about the centerpiece of your home-entertainment system, you should looking at a TV that is going to serve you well for years to come, not leave you feeling like you’re missing out on something every time you turn it on. A 4K UHD TV will let you see the best-quality version of House of Cards , Game of Thrones , or whatever TV show or movie you’re into, for years to come. You’ll get more color, better contrast, and higher resolution, and your eyes will thank you for it. Pshaw! There’s plenty of content You’ve no doubt run into some articles talking about a paucity of 4K UHD content out there to watch. That’s yesterday’s problem, friends. There’s already a solid amount of 4K UHD content available from several streaming services — some with ultra-high contrast HDR capabilities — available right now. And more is coming. Not into streaming? Ultra HD Blu-ray discs and players will debut in January and February of 2016, and by holiday time next year, you can count on a large selection of titles to choose from that will make your TV look incredible. Granted, broadcast networks and cable-satellite operators have a little catching up to do, but trust us when we say behind-the-scenes work to bring you your favorite sports and broadcast TV shows in 4K UHD is well underway. When the transition begins, it’s going to move quickly. It’s only a matter of time, and you’ll want to be ready to take advantage when it goes down. Choose wisely We hope you’re now feeling comfortable pulling the trigger on a new 4K Ultra HD TV purchase. It really is the smartest decision, and in a year or two, 1080p TVs won’t even be an option. But if you’re not sure which 4K UHD TV might be best for you, we’ve got some more helpful advice for you right here in our detailed 4K Ultra HD TV buying guide. Happy shopping!

  • SHOCKING! Aamir Khan And Family To Move Out Of India For Few Days? (15 photos)

    Aamir Khan is facing severe backlash for his “intolerance” comments which he recently made at a media event. From protests to petitions to politicians and celebrities speaking out, the centre of the storm is Aamir’s residence in Mumbai. Yesterday, Aamir was photographed returning to Mumbai from Ludhiana, amid tight security. Aamir exited the Mumbai Airport through the VVIP gate, and was quickly driven to his residence. A leader of the Punjab unit of Shiv Sena yesterday offered a sum of Rs 1 lakh to anyone who slaps the Bollywood actor. Also, protestors took law into their hands, and were seen burning posters of Aamir outside his hotel in Ludhiana. Aamir was in Ludhiana to shoot for his upcoming film Dangal, in which he essays the role of a wrestler. He was advised rest for a week following an injury while filming an action sequence for the film. However, yesterday, from our sources in the security team of Aamir, we’ve learnt that the Khan family is planning to “move out of India for few days”. A source said, “We don’t know anything yet. It’s absolutely chaotic. You saw how it is. They’re planning to go to US for few days, and will be back when it all settles.” None of the people who spoke to us were sure about what’s going to happen next. Meanwhile, security has been increased at Aamir’s residence, and nobody is allowed to get in without a detailed security check by Mumbai Police and Aamir’s personal security guards. It’s shocking, and unbelievable! What do you think? Photos by: Viral Bhayani / GossipTicket & Nikesh Gurav / Solaris Images

  • Musk's Tesla faces German battle over battery-powered homes

    By Vera Eckert and Christoph Steitz FRANKFURT (Reuters) - If Elon Musk's vision of millions of households producing all their own power becomes a reality, it will probably happen first in Germany. The South African-born entrepreneur's company Tesla, best known for its electric cars, sparked global interest in the idea of self-powered homes in April, when it said it would start selling lithium-ion batteries for households next year. The batteries, called Powerwalls, connect to solar panels on the roof of a house and aim to store enough power during the day to drive kettles and washing machines at night, raising the prospect that households one day will be able to rely fully on clean energy and become independent of the power grid.
