Smartphone manufacturer Lenovo teased a new phone this week which is going to be almost all screen on the front. They claim the screen takes up 95% of the front of the camera rivaling Apple's iPhone X and other competitors. The trend is clear: big screens are in vogue.

The new phone, titled the Z5, is still shrouded in mystery, but the sketch provided by Lenovo certainly shows a lot of screen. What we're interested in before we tell you to consider buying is what kind of camera this device will have. If they're trying to compete with Apple, Samsung, and Google it's going to have to be pretty good. Also, where are they going to put the front facing camera?

Screens have dominated our tech culture for the past 50 years and the recent surge in smartphone screen size is a product of the ubiquity of video on these devices. The more people want to watch video content on their phones, and the more demand for video content there is, both professionally and otherwise, the larger the screen size of the devices get.

The screen culture has taken over and presents an amazing opportunity to those who want to create content for those screens. Now that almost every new phone on the market has a huge screen, more and more people are going to be turning to those screens for content, making video content a hot commodity.

Learning to produce professional video has never been easier and TheVJ.com can not only teach you those skills but also show you how to make money with them.

The old news mantra — if it bleeds, it leads has been replaced by if it’s gross, adios. The prospect of a news-free electorate is terrifying.

The news business is in trouble. In the past decade, more than 2400 local newspapers have closed. NBC Nightly News gets 5 million viewers per night, in a nation of 340 million people, so most people are not watching. What are they watching? Netflix.

For most of human history, people lived in a world without news. The concept simply did not exist. The idea of news is really a 19th-century phenomenon, driven first by newspapers, and then by electronic media which brought us radio, then TV and now the web. Now, it seems, we are headed back to a world without news. Not because the technology is not there, but rather because, increasingly, people are no longer interested in news, at least in the way it is packaged now.
