    Google Play Magazines offers free digital versions to print subscribers

    Google Play’s magazine subscriptions have always, sadly, existed separate from a publications print offerings. Meaning, even if you already had the paper edition of Beer Advocate delivered to your home, you still had to cough up for the digital version. That’s finally changed, however, which should make many magazine hounds quite happy. Now when you select a new periodical, you’ll be offered the standard monthly and yearly subscription options, along with the new “free for print subscribers.” You’ll need to verify your subscription before Google will allow you to download issues, but that’s one less barrier to entry for those looking to dip their toes in the digital magazine pool. For a bit more info check out the source link.

  • Harman bringing trio of JBL speakers and pair of AV receivers to CES

    Harman brings trio of JBL speakers and pair of AV receivers to CES

    Harman has joined several other companies in jumping the CES gun, announcing five new products it’s bringing to the show. First up is the JBL Charge, a hardy Bluetooth speaker which promises an impressive 12 hours of tunes on a single charge. If you are willing to sacrifice some of that play time, you can siphon power from the internal battery to other kit via the speaker’s USB port. Expected to start shipping in Q1 2013, you should be able to pick one up for around $149. Joining JBL’s OnBeat range are the Mini and Rumble speaker docks, which are both compatible with Apple’s Lightning connector. The Mini is a fairly standard dock which will play and charge for up five hours on battery power, and should be available this coming March for around $149. The Rumble, however, is a little more equipped, with both Lightning and Bluetooth streaming options, as well as a 4.5-inch, “down-firing subwoofer” for bass junkies. That extra muscle is reflected in the price, though, which is likely to be $399 when it hits stores next spring.

    A couple of new Kardon-branded A/V receivers from Harman are also coming along to CES — the AVR 2700 and 3700. Both have multi-zone functionality, are stacked with wireless features including internet radio, AirPlay and DLNA connectivity, and can be controlled using iOS and Android apps. The AVR 2700 has eight HDMI ports and 4K video scaling for when you get round to buying that UHDTV, as well as 7.1-channel audio (at 100 watts per channel). The AVR 3700 adds WiFi connectivity, and has 7.2 channels (at 125 watts per channel) for adding a second woofer to your setup. When they become available to purchase in Q1 2013, expect wallet damage to the tune of $799 for the 2700, or $999 for the 3700. You can get a closer look at all the Harman products in the press shots below (complete with unnecessary reflection), and if you’re into PRs, there are a whole bunch awaiting you after the break.

  • Hulu CEO Jason Kilar announces resignation, will leave company in Q1

    Hulu CEO Jason Kilar announces resignation

    Some big news out of Hulu late this afternoon: CEO Jason Kilar has just announced that he will be leaving the company sometime in the first quarter of this year. The news was first reported by Bloomberg News and followed quickly by a blog post from Kilar himself containing the email he sent to his staff. In it, Kilar says that he is now working with the company’s board to manage the transition, and also confirms that Senior Vice President and CTO Richard Tom will be leaving along with him. He didn’t exactly delve into the reasons for his resignation, though, saying only that the decision has been “one of the toughest I’ve ever made,” and adding that he’ll keep the team updated as “dates and other items get solidified.”
