With more and more music and video being stored by consumers on external hard-disks, those disks have themselves become valuable commodities. You’d think someone who took time to rip an entire CD and/or DVD collection, or downloaded a boatload of high-res albums from HDtracks, would make the additional step to secure their data by backing it up. But in many situations that isn’t the case.

TCL showed what they claimed to be the world's largest 110-inch curved 4K UltraHDTV. Presumably that means that it's bigger than all of the other 110-inch curved 4K UltraHD sets out there.

Some people listen to music while sitting in a concert hall. Some listen to music sitting in their La-Z-Boy.
