Home theater confuses people with its nomenclature. Dolby Laboratories established the 5.1 home standard about 30 years ago. Now we also have 6.1 and 7.1.
URBANA — Actor RJ Mitte, who starred on AMC's "Breaking Bad" as Walter White Jr., will speak at 7 p.m. Tuesday in the Illini Union I-Rooms in the west wing of the building, 1401 W. Green St.

The segment of "The Ellen Show" shot on Monday at the University of Illinois is now online.

Long before the Walkman, long before the compact disc, even before Betamax, Sony established its reputation with the Trinitron TV.
The Olympic ban continues. But even though you can't write about a topic, you can still watch. And we have been, hour after hour. Enough to see Bob Costas in his Harry Potter glasses before he wisely took a break. Enough to realize the Dutch like the color orange. Enough to know the U.S. isn't as dominant in men's snowboarding, dude.
