    Much to the chagrin of the average American, the World Cup is arguably the single most popular sporting event in the world. In 2010, FIFA (The Fédération Internationale de Football Association) reported that nearly a billion fans watched some portion of the Cup’s Championship game and close to...

    It's hard to believe that the 2010 World Cup was just a few months ago, but even though many 3D events have come since, it was certainly the biggest broadcast at the time and this week viewers at home can archive it with Sony's The Official 2010 FIFA World Cup Film in 3D disc.

    ESPN picked today to release the results of what it's calling "one of the most in-depth studies on 3DTV to date,"and not a moment too soon, in the midst of a media frenzy over statements that its just-launched 3D network still has yet to see a return on investment. After conducting over 1,000...

    Sure, we'd prefer if Japan spent its time working on giant mecha suits to combat any potential alien threats, but right now the National Institute of Information and Communications Studies seems focused on trying to create holographic broadcast technology in an effort to secure Japan as the...

    We'll admit it, when it still looked like the US had a clear road to the semifinals and by Jingo, the Engadget HQ was in full World Cup frenzy mode. But then came a major disappointment vs Ghana, and we're wondering if anyone else is still hanging on to a game most of us ignore outside of...

    So maybe you're like our friend Jimmy and want to check out some World Cup action in 3D, but don't know where to go to see it. Luckily Cinedigm is adding to its list of sports broadcasts by bringing the World Cup final to a few moviehouses in 3D. Check out the official site for the current...

    Of course we've talked 3D to death and back, and we've seen several reviews and previews, but Technologizer took some time out to grab a more "man on the street" impression of the technology. With a mini focus group intact they checked out the Samsung Experience in NYC, taking time to focus...

    While ESPN's World Cup presentation has improved by leaps and bounds over the 2006 effort, UK watchers got a nasty surprise on the high definition feed of ITV during yesterday's highly anticipated United States / England match. At the exact moment England scored its first goal, ITV HD...

    PlayOn's apparently been hard at work to make sure it's worthy of the new premium pricing, and now is ready to offer ESPN3 among the channels it shunts from PCs to connected TV devices including the Xbox 360, PS3 and Wii. That means if you have a provider who offers ESPN3 and a TV that...

    I just bought a set of Berkline theater seating and would like to get some silver cup holders. Anybody know where to get these? Thanks, Ryntaz

    I have Berkline seating with cup holders in the arms of the chairs. The problem is that they do not have removable inserts and the bottom of the cup holders are not flat which causes your cup or wine glass to tip when placed inside. I found a perfect solution. However, locating what I need has...

    I somehow doubt that this thread will generate very much interest but here goes anyway. A quick run down as to the whole competion. Twenty teams are divided up into four pools or groups for the initial round robin phase. The winners and runners up of each pool then progress to the next round...

But, this is aimed squarely at our American friends: 1) Are you watching it? The World Cup gets world wide viewing fiquers that look...
