  • NBC, you owe an apology to Olympian Bode Miller... and to journalism Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: February 18, 2014
    Due to time constraints, I’ve been forced to watch the 2014 Winter Olympics on a delay.  It wasn’t until last evening that I saw the Men’s Super-G race from the weekend, in which veteran skier Bode Miller took home the bronze medal after an intense speed-skiing shootout in Sochi.  Miller would’ve won the gold had […]

    CBS Corp. and Time Warner Cable have finally reached an agreement over new broadcasting rights, ending a month-long blackout of CBS, Showtime, and other channels.  CBS claims Time Warner eventually gave in and agreed to their new terms.  But Time Warner subscribers shouldn’t jump for joy just yet… it’s only a matter of time before […]
  • HBO NO: Why is HBO's online streaming service so terrible? Posted by: Matt Rock Posted on: September 2, 2013
