Fox News Installed A Bunch Of Bizarrely Enormous iPads In Its Newsroom

foxgif

Fox News unveiled a first glimpse at its new studio for the Fox News Deck that features some insanely gigantic tablets ¬†that will be used by Fox’s Information Specialist while the Shepard Smith serves up the hottest topics of interest.

The 55-inch Windows-based touchscreens will be used by the crew to sift through rumors on Twitter (four tweets at a time), confirm reports, and spin through Google Earth to deliver an entirely new experience, for better or worse. While the studio could easily morph into an arena for the world’s first televised Angry Birds tournament, Fox says the news deck is designed to appeal to viewers who are “non linear” and sift through news all day on their phones.

Check out this video of Sheppard showing off the new tablets and his Minority Report style 38-foot display.

FOX News Contributor: Apple Should Buy Cyprus From The E.U.

The tiny Mediterranean island nation of Cyprus has fallen on some hard times lately.

The bleak financial prospects facing Cyprus has resulted in the govenment having to come up with capital control measures to prevent runs on banks, and keep investors from taking money out of the country.

Fox News’ Shep Smith Likens AT&T To A Crack Dealer When He Learns He’s Going To Be Throttled [Video]

Fox News’ Shep Smith Likens AT&T To A Crack Dealer When He Learns He’s Going To Be Throttled [Video] AT&T has been sending out text messages to those they consider to be among the top 5 percent of heaviest data users. These messages seem to only pertain to those still on the “unlimited” plan and warn them that they may be subjected to “reduced data speeds.” This throttling of data speeds is a direct attack against the “unlimited” plans and the users grandfathered into them. The worst part about it is most “unlimited” users have not changed the way they use their phones, yet they are now finding themselves to be alienated and penalized as being a part of the 5%. The whole thing is outrageous, and while many customers have been ranting about it for a while, you’re going to want to see what happens when Fox News anchor Shep Smith receives one of these AT&T messages. Let’s just say someone’s not happy.

Fox News: Let’s Boost “Apple Tourism” With Easier U.S. Travel Visas

(By the way, Cult of Mac will be in Sao Paulo Nov. 20, come say hi and talk about all things Apple in Brazil).
