YouTube, Facebook and other platforms whose core business model is to serve programmatic ads on user-generated content are making the world a darker place to live. There has been a lot of news headlines about a lot of scandals involving YouTube, Facebook and other platforms whose core business model is to serve programmatic ads on user-generated content. I find the entire situation greatly redeeming considering even back in 2013 I was talking about the problems with this business model. It’s
Hi folks, sorry for the long radio silence. We’ve had a lot of exciting things behind the scenes here at MBS, Inc. I want to give ya’ll a quick update so you stay informed on what has occurred and what is happening. 1. New GUI: We’ve got a brand new final design for the graphical user interface for Zenither. More photos can be viewed at our Facebook Page https://www.facebook.com/zenitherTV 2. Patents: We’ve filed numerous patents related to the technology powering the Zenither application.
I held off writing down my opinions related to this film in this blog for a number of months partly because I was busy focusing on Zenither, but also because I wanted time to reflect and listen to all sides. But I still feel my initial assessment when I watched the film in theatres is correct — that Star Wars: The Last Jedi is a bad movie. Not bad in the sense it didn’t do what I wanted it to
It’s strange for me to realize something. I’ve been operating as a digital nomad for the past few years while building up Martell Broadcasting Systems yet I’ve never done any specific blogs about the subject. I think I’ve learned a lot of important lessons along the way and so I want to share some of this hard-won knowledge with others. I’ve had to do a lot of long road trips, and I’ve also found myself stuck overnight at an airport
Hi folks, I wanted to let everyone know the development team has been hard at work adding new features and making improvements to the Zenither site. This is possible due to the investments that folks have been making into our campaign, allowing us to keep our development team working on new stuff for Zenither. We expect to make a close soon on the funds which have currently been invested so that we may pay our developers for the work they
We live in an exciting time. The JOBS Act allows regular people to invest into startups with the potential to become the next Facebook / Google / Apple / Time Warner / Disney. Through a platform like Start Engine we can potentially raise $1.07 million from the general public and use that money to catapult our Zenither app into the market with features that both viewers and content creators deserve and which no other platform is providing. So let’s get

This one is perhaps among my
Many years ago I talked and showed videos about an app my company produced called ‘Martell TV’. Although I developed a prototype I had trouble finding funding to complete and fully launch it with the full feature set I had in mind. I ended up shelving it and starting the Power Up TV MCN, which my company would sell to Thunder Studios in 2015. It is now 2017 and after a great deal of behind the scenes work and preparation,
People wonder why studios are doing so poorly at the box office this year — Sony has made $179M domestically this year as an example. These are the core problems as I see it. Problem #1: It’s expensive to go to the movies. The rising price of tickets doesn’t help but the food prices are also too high for the low quality that it usually is. It costs about $50 for two parents with one child once you factor in

Owen Gleiberman writes for Variety that Ben-Hur bombed because it did not have any “movie stars”. or not the right ones or some such. I’m here to tell you that’s not the reason at all. It has nothing to do with the actors. It has to do with the fact the book Ben-Hur is practically unknown even in fundamentalist Christian circles today. No mass group of people are filled with a pressing need to go watch another cinematic interpretation of it.
