World Cup VAR: technology is transforming the beautiful game

The 2018 World Cup isn’t just about the top footballing nations battling it out for the ultimate glory; it is also perhaps the test ground for FIFA to ensure fairer gameplay. To do that, FIFA has progressed far more than just employing yellow and red cards. The focus for them is to ensure that games get as an accurate a result as possible.

To do that, they have launched the Virtual Assistant Referee (VAR) system.

Yes, along with the greatest footballing nations in the World Cup battling it out, we have another trial test that is as important as controversial: the VAR system.

Fire your pay TV provider! Yes, I’m referring to your unfriendly local cable TV company, your satellite dish TV provider, and the like. Most of these companies have atrocious customer service, they gouge you with ridiculous or hidden fees, and they continue to hike the price of TV subscription packages year after year with no end in sight.

If you can’t break your TV addiction and you don’t want to continue shelling out your hard-earned loot, it’s time to consider installing an HDTV antenna! Most people aren’t even aware that you can get absolutely free, high definition broadcast television channels over the air (OTA) with a modern HDTV antenna.

To dive into this brave new world of free HDTV, you’ll need proximity to a major metropolitan area that has broadcast television towers and you’ll need to be in the receiving path of the signals. I’ve used my HDTV antenna in the Phoenix Arizona area and the Salt Lake City Utah area, at 3 separate homes.

Is Virtual Reality a Fad or the Future?

is-virtual-reality-a-fad-or-the-future-1

Virtual reality, a.k.a. VR, is one of the hottest new innovations in the tech arena. Despite its widespread applications in the medical, military, and aerospace arenas, there is still a smidgen of scepticism about its ability to go mainstream. Before we answer this question about VR, it’s important to elaborate a little more on this cutting-edge technology. Back in the 1990s, The Matrix popularized a virtual reality where the mind was plugged into a computer mainframe and people interacted with one another in an alternate virtual universe. This virtual arena breached the divide between the real world and the virtual-reality arena, with real-life consequences.

The LG OLED TV at Best Buy is dazzling viewers

LG’s remarkable OLED TV technology is revolutionizing how we watch TV. We’ve all read about ‘virtual reality’ concepts in books, and seen it in movies and TV…

But what if the television in your living room looked so dramatically life-like and was so immersive that it transported you to new places? It’s time to forget virtual reality and check out the LG OLED TV at Best Buy. View REAL reality at its best, with unbelievable clarity in stunning OLED high definition.

LG OLED TV

I’m personally excited about LG’s OLED TV due to the technological advances and break-throughs that it brings along with it. Traditional LED TV’s used inorganic LED’s as their backlighting mechanism, but they still maintained the same old Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) architecture that we’ve been using in HDTV’s for years. OLED is a whole new animal, utilizing organic light emitting diodes that function as the pixels themselves, leading to much better contrast, color and every other aspect of picture quality. Traditional LED and LCD HDTV’s can’t come close to this picture quality!
