Next iPhone may make 'biggest camera jump ever,' rumor claims

11/18, 4:40pm

Device might allegedly reach 'DSLR-quality imagery'

The next-generation iPhone may represent Apple's "biggest camera jump ever," says Daring Fireball's John Gruber.

Review: Tablo DVR

10/31, 2:00am

Over-the-air DVR is a user-friendly solution, but can be limited without subscription

With over-the-top content options growing past Hulu and Netflix, consumers may be finding it harder to justify paying a monthly fee for cable.

Thankfully, new options have hit the market for those that have access to an antenna and a USB storage device. The Tablo is one such digital video recorder (DVR) that captures free, over-the-air broadcasts, allowing people to watch their favorite time-shifted shows through a tablet or browser. But is Nuvyyo's Tablo a device that does the job with minimal hassle, or are consumers better off with the attachment to cable? Find out in our review.
