Netflix to spend $7 Billion on content in 2018

Netflix is going full steam ahead into 2018 and has announced that they'll be putting $7 billion dollars into content next year. In 2017 they've invested $6 billion, which was an increase of a billion over 2016 so the trend seems to be that Netflix is growing at a pretty good pace. The amount of money that Netflix is throwing around is starting to be questioned if it can be sustainable, but for the time being they seem to have people buying in and it's making the other streaming service (and other traditional media formats) really have to pull up their socks in an attempt to stay viable. The Streaming Observer has more on this story.

Now that Apple has seemingly lost its spark, Netflix has become the most talked-about company in the world – and for good reason.

The streaming innovator is in the middle of disrupting several industries, having completely revolutionized television and now poised to do the same with the film industry. The company’s commitment to innovation has put Netflix head and shoulders above its closest streaming competitors in terms of both subscriber totals and critical acclaim; Netflix dominated other streaming services in this year’s Emmy Award nominations, picking up a total of 91 different nominations, proving that their original series and films are true forces to be reckoned with.

Samsung @ CES 2013

One of the highlights of every CES is a stop by the Samsung booth and this year didn’t disappoint. Samsung has so many products on display which makes it feel like walking through a candy story wishing you could have one of each. The big product in the TV market this year at CES is 4k displays (4096x2160 resolution) and Samsung had a bunch of those on display. Right now content is pretty tough to find in resolutions that high, but the demo clips that they were showing attracted quite a crowd.

Also on display was one of Samsung's curved OLED TV's. The curve in the screen wasn't drastic but it was enough to give the picture a bit of a different look and thanks to the OLED technology the picture was great.

Lenovo's X1 Carbon & MIIX 2 at CES 2014

We stopped by the Lenovo restaurant (Aquanox) in the Venetian to take a look at their new products. We have a bunch of pictures and coverage from Pepcom, so in the video below we talk about the new X1 Carbon as well as the nifty MIIX 2. Check out the goodies!

Digital Storm's Aventum 3 and more at CES 2015

Ever year we stop by Digital Storm to check out some of their new systems. Digital Storm has a wide variety of systems for pretty much any budget, but front and center was their new Aventum III case which is their supercar of the computer world. Basically the Aventum III is their highest end system which can feature the best of the best when it comes to hardware but the thing that sets them apart from other high end systems is the case that Digital Storm has designed specifically for the Aventum III. I'll let the video do the rest of the talking.
 
 
In addition to their Aventum III, Digital Storm was also showing off their Eclipse, Velox, and Bolt II systems. The Eclipse start around the $700 dollar range, the Bolt II starts around $1600 and goes up to around $2000 for the Velox. When we first started working with Digital Storm it was all out the high end systems but in the past couple years they've started to offer consumers a wide selection based on budget yet still giving you a high quality Digital Storm system and amazing service that they've become well known for.

Deepcool @ CES 2016

If you haven't heard of Deepcool before, after this CES, you will probably be trying to find someone who sells their products here in North America. Deepcool brought some interesting designs to their suite this year. One of such is the Tristellar case and by looks alone one could almost say it was out of a Star Wars movie. The graphics card is contained in the top one of the three "wings", while the PSU is in the lower left "wing" and lastly the ITX motherboard and CPU are housed in the lower right. There is also enough room to stick one of Deepcool’s liquid coolers in the case as well.

The Images will show the Tristellar S white case however this is a special Bill Owen MOD case with only 50 made globally; the normal version of the case comes in black.

The Genome which will be hitting the market later this year is more than just a case, it's an extreme liquid cooling system. The case and liquid cooler are designed to fit seamlessly together all the while bringing some interesting design elements in along the way. The cooling solution is a 360mm radiator with 3 PWM fans, a helix reservoir, and all the while using the new captain design CPU block and pump. Depending on the final price when it hits the market it really could be worth looking at when building a new rig.

To top it all off DeepCool was demonstrating a PSU that was liquid cooled which is something not too many people have worked on. Who knows if it will become a mainstream item or not, but it's always cool to seem something new and different.
