Tonight, Green Arrow finally meets Black Canary (Caity Lotz) or, as the characters are called in this CW version, "Arrow" and "Canary." Apparently, pithiness is an Arrow virtue, though it's not entirely clear whether the color-blind name-shortening is part of the series' reinvention of the characters or more proof of CW's belief that its audience has a very short attention span.

I told you I liked 4K At a distance of 2 to 3m, the detail was fantastic. Using Chris Heinonen's 4K Calculator , with my 20/15 vision, I was able to get most of the detail potential in 4K. Using some Samsung-supplied 4K test clips, there was tremendous detail in faces and individual strands of hair. There were city shots, where you could make out people in the distance. If I moved closer (about 2m), I could see even more detail ( as the math implies ). I didn't notice much motion blur, but I forgot to check what the settings were.

And it's giving a lift to a San Fernando Valley firm, Transit TV, which holds the contract with MTA. For bus rider and Los Angeles native Emmett Cutler, 56, who takes the Broadway line through downtown L.A., the TVs can be a diversion during his daily commute. "You have to get up real early to catch the news at home, and pic of kim kardashian this shows you a variety of things, including weather, maps and news for your area," Cutler said during a bus ride last week. "I like it." PHOTOS: Celebrities by The Times It's been a bumpy ride for Transit TV, which began installing TV monitors in Metro buses about six years ago. The original owner, a Canadian company that publishes the Toronto Star newspaper, spent tens of millions of dollars outfitting buses in several markets, including Los Angeles, Chicago and Orlando, with the technology and TV screens. <br>Source:,0,2936438.story

Chris Brown: Is it time for a TV boycott of the Breezy singer?

In a blog posted Monday, Nielsen said that it will offer its clients a software developer kit (SDK) in mid-November . The SDK will let broadcasters and other content providers include digital viewers in their TV show measurements. Based on certain criteria, TV shows will either be counted in the traditional Nielsen TV ratings or the company's Nielsen Digital Ratings. "We've been working hard to deliver this new SDK and are excited to be able to deliver a single client solution that supports both the linear (TV style) and dynamic (Internet style) ad models," Megan Clarken, a Nielsen executive VP and global product leader, said in a statement. "This unified encoding approach for video enables measurement to follow content across screens and ad models." Related stories $150 movie ticket?

Just a few months ago, Brown was accused in a hit-and-run accident, although those charges were later dropped. Question: Why does this clearly out-of-control man still enjoy access to big media? Sure, a lot of big-name rappers have been involved in violent cases, but even the best-known among them, such as T.I. , haven't been given the same indulgence as Brown has received. Grammy producers took deserved heat for allowing Brown to perform -- twice! -- at the 2012 awards ceremony. They probably won't make that mistake again, although stranger things have happened in the entertainment business. <br>Source:,0,6052334.story
