    With the PlayStation VR arriving in time to meet up with a couple of new PlayStation 4 variants, Sony would have done well and good to start planning 360° TV and movie content a long time ago. Alas, we're hearing today that the Japanese company will likely be licensing content from other multimedia outfits at first. The PlayStation VR will be released on October 13, which gives the company less than a month to implement its wider content strategy. The company claims more than 230 developers to its effort working on more than 50 projects in gaming, karaoke, cartoons, music videos and ...

    Asus set a high standard for android tablets, and alongside new Transformers, they also revealed the new ZenPad 3S 10. Not the most graceful name, but a sleek slate built around high quality media consumption. This 9.7” screen is housed in an aluminum frame with some tiny bezels bordering that screen, and a 78% screen to body ratio. That 2k display clocks in at a resolution of 2048 x 1536. It's sleek, it's shiny, and Asus thinks it's the right recipe for you music and movie junkies. The ZenPad 3S 10 aims to do battle with Apple and Samsung with a high quality screen and premium ...

    Here at Pocketnow, we love smartphones. LURVE 'em. Eat, sleep, and breathe smartphones. But we're also not monsters, and we know that there are situations during which our phones simply aren't to be used. You don't text while driving, you don't shoot selfies at a funeral, and you don't do anything -ANYTHING- with an illuminated screen when watching a film in a darkened theater. We thought the rest of the world was on board with similar beliefs, but earlier this week the head of the AMC theater chain talked about maybe finding a way to show movies where texting wouldn't just be permitted, ...

    "Netflix and Chill" has not killed the theater, but it seems to moviegoers that the only way that theaters have been adapting to the times is by raising prices on tickets and concessions. Well, if you're 22 years old, has Adam Aron got something to say to you. Aron's the new CEO of AMC Entertainment and he's about to lead an acquisition of competitor Carmike that will result in the world's largest theater chain. And he wants to make sure that the company doesn't get complacent on top of the mountain. He's looking to relax cellphone use bans during flicks. "When you tell a 22-year-old to ...

    I try and make it to a movie theater at least once a month. Inevitably at least a few times during the show someone will turn on their phone and blind half the audience. Whether it was to check messages, see who was calling, or fire off a quick text, it's still rude. It's so rude that theaters try to "guilt" their patrons into turning off their phones until after the movie is over. They run public service announcements during the trailers and before the movie runs to try and convince you that you're the person who will ruin the entire movie for everyone if you don't silence your phone and ...
