My business partner and I were very frustrated with the current inventory situation for several Sony 4K televisions. And if you are a Sony dealer, then I’m sure you’ll understand what I’m talking about. The reply he received from the company’s VP of audio/video specialty/custom integration, Frank Sterns, goes a long way toward alleviating that frustration.

Unfortunately the whole HDCP 2.2 thing is looming out on the horizon for all of our jobs, a little like a mega asteroid off in some distant part of the galaxy.

I followed Mariusz previous automation expedition when he summited Cho Oyu, the sixth highest mountain in the world, during the 2013 CEDIA EXPO. Knowing that Maruisz’s FIBARO Mount Everest Challenge expedition was underway and that a major avalanche occurred in the midst of his climb made the events far more personal for me.

I recently had a phone call where the customer’s opening line was, “My system is broken; nothing is working.” So I followed up with, “What do you mean nothing is working?”

If you have any geek cred whatsoever, then you have already watched the new Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens
trailer several times. And if you’re anything like me, you got chills at the end when Han uttered those three words: “Chewie, we’re home.”
