I’ve gone back and forth about whether or not I was going to comment on the recent fallout involving Channel Awesome.

Nike created self-lacing Air Mags (for Michael J. Fox). And then there’s Pepsi… Pepsi, Pepsi, Pepsi. Continue reading SBox Soapbox: Let’s Talk Pepsi Perfect
It’s September, and you know what that means. The Fall 2015 TV season is here. It’s a wonderful time of year where you’re most excited to turn on your cable boxes. For many of us, we’ll have one season premiere after another after another. Maybe you’ll try to pick up a brand new show which may become the next big thing. Whatever the case, it’s a good time to be be a TV surfer.
