LG told Tom's Guide recently that its current webOS takes up to 40 seconds to launch. The new webOS 2.0 will cut that time by 60 percent, as well as well as provide 70 percent faster times from when you push a button for an app like YouTube till when it starts playing. With competing systems like Roku now on TVs as well as set-top-boxes running lightening fast, smart TV makers must be feeling the pressure to catch up. LGs smart models will also have to compete with big-name TVs running Google's Android TV. webOS Gets Personal The new webOS also has more personalization options, with a My Channels app that lets users drop icons for favorite channels (cable/satellite or online) into the launcher bar that pops up from the bottom of the screen. The bar is the signature feature of webOS as well as other smart TV interfaces, such as Vizio's VIA Plus (Vizio Internet Apps) system.

This is one we're got to see. TV settings menus typically cover half or more of the screen that you are trying to adjust. If LG has found a way to prevent that, it will be welcome news for videophiles with itchy remote-control fingers. LG's smart interface is also the gateway to online 4K content. LG reaffirmed its relationship with Amazon Instant Video and Netflix in its announcement tonight.

I just put the flashers on and took off." Then, on Meisner, east of the East China Performing Arts Center, her daughter shouted, "Mom, the head's out!" "I just pulled onto the nearest side street which was Belle River and called 911," she said. "There was no way we were making it to the hospital." Whitely's fiance, Justin Hubbard, 24, riding in the back seat, was there for their first baby, Carson; but that was a while ago and during a conventional birth in a hospital delivery room. Still, the experience he gained at the birth served him well. Hubbard said his first thoughts now were, "Oh, don't let my baby fall!" When the baby came out shortly after they parked, Hubbard was there to catch her; and Aurora Robin was born 8 pounds, 7.5 ounces and 18.5 inches long. "After that, as I was handing her to Kara, the baby started crying and we were glad about that," he said. Grace Whitely then told 911 that the baby was here, and they sent an ambulance to come pick them up and bring them to the hospital. Continued... See Full Story Whitely said that morning she started having noticeable contractions shortly after 9 a.m. "They were uncomfortable enough to where I couldn't fall back asleep, so I was up walking around, getting all the hospital things that I'd packed out in the living room," she said. The contractions started getting more painful, but her water hadn't broken cord cutting yet; so she decided to take a hot shower to help things along. Once she got out of the shower, the contractions were getting very painful. She told her mom they'd have to go soon.

A sunny, well-ventilated area is best. Cover wood to protect it from the weather. Leave the sides open to breezes. Give it time to reach the 20% or less moisture content required for seasoned wood. This process takes about 6 months for softwoods and 1 year for hardwoods. Think ahead and buy next winter's wood well in advance. BUHL Many claim the warmth of a woodstove cant be beat on a cold winter day. But others say the maintenance and expense is not worth the bother. I like the heat it gives out, said Troy Juker, of Buhl. But it can be messy. Still, 2.5 million households nationally rely on woodstoves as their sole source of heat, according to the U.S.

That should change in the future, but the streaming services -- Amazon and Netflix -- have a significant edge over the competition, one that is inherent to their distribution systems, and one that may last for many years. Before it began offering 4K video, Netflix predicted that Internet-based services would prove pioneers in offering 4K content. "In most countries, the conversion to 4K video is being led by Internet video because Internet services can efficiently serve just the homes with 4K televisions, while [cable] would have to convert entire markets channel by channel." Tellingly, Comcast has announced that its 4K content will be delivered over the Internet. Buyers of 4K TVs, then, are obvious targets for Netflix and Amazon Prime subscriptions. As a substitute for traditional cable packages, their dominance of 4K video could entice 4K television set buyers to cut the cable cord. The effects could be limited, especially as early 4K adopters are likely to be relatively affluent, but as the price of 4K sets heads ever lower, and other Internet-based streaming services (including HBO's) appear, the decline of paid TV subscribers could coincide with the rise of 4K television sets. Your cable company is scared, but you can get rich You know cable's going away. But do you know how to profit?There's $2.2 trillion out there to be had. Currently, cable grabs a big piece of it. That won't last.
