DBZ is much older and was created the old fashioned way, so it was a simple matter of scanning and restoring/retouching the frames for HD. Naruto was done in the early 2K years, so it most likely was...

Naruto - apart from the movies - doesn't really exist in HD form because the show was done in SD and later switched to HD down the line, so no series Blu-Ray release will ever exist.

I believe you created the seed for what eventually became the Acer Revo M1 (Revo Build), which was built from the NUC concept. Acer is one of the few companies willing to take risks in the area of...

Since you're in touch with GoRite, ask them to consider a NUC lid with a front-facing SDXC card reader. That's one thing that the Kaby Lake NUCs will need, as Intel swapped SD for microSD on those. I...

Looks like Sony held on this for their MOD offerings (ala Warner Archives), instead of tossing it to Mill Creek.

The NJ has most of it's original crew because they survived the outbreak, which wiped out the bulk of US armed forces around the world. If you recall the line that the CO of one of the other ships...

Not necessarily. We've seen that UHDTVs can be upgraded with firmware to enable the latest HDMI standard, but we'll just have to wait and see. That's why I'm not wasting my money on a UHDTV right now...

That's because you aren't fluent in tech like I am. HDR10 only uses static HDR at this time. It's not the sort of HDR you want for games, which is why HDR10 is being updated with dynamic HDR, which...

Don't bother with it until the next-gen Xbox is out and HDMI 2.1 is the norm. The HDR for Xbox One S is NOT dynamic HDR, so it's worthless for gaming and can only be used for a narrow range of...
