[Updated] Over The Top (OTT) streaming services reviewed

Over The Top (OTT) streaming media is a new-aged method for people to get TV without going through a cable company. Users can get TV on mobile devices, streaming sticks, consoles, as well as on computers.  OTT is also the main victim of Net Neutrality repeal so as of right now, it's at a pass roads as to whether it can replace your cable subscription or not.  If Net Neutrality repeal gets enforced by the FCC, cable companies will be able to price these OTT services out of the market and force customers into costly cable packages.

Coolest display from day 1 and CES 2018

As I walked around the CES showroom floor today I got to see tons of cool stuff.  Cool cars, cool drones, cool phones, but one of the coolest was a LED display that looked like was filled with fans or rotor blades.

BMW Ultimate driving experience at CES 2018

One of the first things you'll encounter with you arrive at CES is the BMW Ultimate driving experience setup in the parking lot.  The setup is to showcase the new M5 they have on hand and they also have a display to check out the new X2 that isn't released yet.

You can also sign up to take a spin in a M3 drifting around the parking lot which I did.  It's a short ride, but it was pretty fun on one of the few rainy days here in Vegas.
