Yes, Page 2 has returned. For a while the excess bits were not enough to build a regular Page 2 column, but I’ve recently been noticing items piling up that I wished that we had gotten to post on the site, but just didn’t have time. I’m not sure how regular this column will be published (and we’ll most likely take a break during the Sundance Film Festival). That said, enjoy the return of Page 2!

The big problem with 3D television right now is there isn’t enough content available to make a purchase worth it. What if you could watch anything and everything broadcast on television in 3D? Engadget gives a surprisingly positive early hands on impression review of VideoEFx, a small device which converts any 2D video content to 3D in real time. Sounds like one of those products that promises a lot and doesn’t really work, but Engadget called it “some seriously impressive stuff.”
