That van you see up there isn’t just any van. In fact, many years later when we’re all surfing the web on our transparent bendable phones with 5G speeds, we’ll look back on this day and thank the little guy.

Watching movies at 4K (3,840 x 2,160) resolution? Sounds great, doesn’t it? Too bad it’s gonna take quite awhile for most of us to download any movie if Sony COO, Peter Molyneux, is on-point about file size — 100GB each. Yikes.
Sony’s 4K movie service hasn’t launched yet, and we’re [...]Read More »
