    Apple builds hardware that brings entertainment to our televisions, as well as sells content that we can consume on such devices, but so far there's been one big missing piece of this chain: Apple doesn't actually make any of that programming itself. For a company that's had so much success doing things in-house, that eels like a bit of an oversight, and it's long been rumored that Apple could be looking to get into the content-creation business for itself, whether through producing its own programming, or acquiring a company that already does just that.

    At 6pm Eastern on March 29, all the possible US TV stations that would like to sell their broadcast spectrum will have committed to do so.

    Sprint might not be as flashy as T-Mobile, but it's trying to go blow for blow in terms of offering up pot sweeteners to lure in would-be subscribers. Take its "Cut Your Bill in Half" promo which some expect to take the mick out of T-Mobile's rocketing rise from last place. Sprint also gave TVs away with some LG G4 phones late last month.

    This week at CES, we will see a rebirth, or as the Verge calls it, a reboot. Our old friend, webOS is making its triumphant return to the large screen it was always meant for. No, I’m not referring to tablets, but to TV’s. Oh, didn’t you hear the news? Yeah, we review TV’s now. (No, we don’t). But webOS’s return to electronics is definitely interesting.
