Putting a Lid on 10 Great Years!

Posted by Alan Henry on January 8th, 2015

TechTV Forever started about 10 years ago, born out of the disappointment and frustration that our much-loved TV network dedicated to technology had been snapped up by a TV network that, as we feared at the time and learned as it happened, was dedicated to improving its viewership numbers and reach at the cost of […]

TechTV Forever Turns 10: Where Do We Go From Here?

Posted by Alan Henry on December 12th, 2014

Just over 10 years ago, TechTV, the 24-hour technology news, reviews, and enthusiast channel that we all knew and loved, announced it was being bought by Comcast and merged with G4 – a move that we all know at this point would go down in infamy, mean the end of TechTV, the end of regular […]

(image above from the fine folks at Penny Arcade, from this comic in 2004. Click to enlarge!)

I […]

A Note About Revision3 Autoplay Flash Videos

Posted by Alan Henry on February 6th, 2009

Apparently Revision3 has configured all of their show players to automatically start the show when it loads – it’s apparently something of a hot topic of discussion and it also effects anyone embedding Revision3 shows in their blogs like I do here at TechTV Forever. So as soon as the page finishes loading, all of […]

What’s Up With MacBreak?

Posted by Alan Henry on June 7th, 2007

A lot of you might have noticed that MacBreak has gone oddly missing from the and TechTVForever lineup. We’re confused too!

InDigital Bytes // Episode 2

Posted by Alan Henry on August 21st, 2006

Another episode of Indigital Bytes is available, after a long long wait! The last Indigital anything was in March; so it’s definitely been a good long wait, and while it’s a little dissapointing that it’s only an Indigital Byte and not a full episode, something is most definitely better than nothing. Regardless, in this episode, […]

Posted by Alan Henry on August 17th, 2006
