Top 4 Comedy Shows to Stream Right Now

~TOP-4~ Things are looking up for Comedy fans, as we present you with our list of the Top 4 Comedy Shows that you can stream right now. We’ve included shows from almost every major platform so you can watch a good show without shelling out on additional subscriptions. There’s only one sitcom in this list, while others have a wider premise.

Nonetheless, all the shows are equally good with different strengths and the list is in no particular order. Be sure to use high-speed internet to enjoy your next favorite show without any lag and interruptions. Go ahead and stream that TV show in high-definition, you got this. Without further ado, let’s dive into the list.

1. Shrinking
Things take a steep turn when a grieving therapist, Jason Segel, decides that he can’t take it anymore. He starts telling his patients exactly what he feels and like a chain reaction, we see the lives of his patients unfold. Fueled by a few preliminary successes, he starts to believe in the new approach, while dealing with his own loss. He could never have thought of the implications his actions and words will have, and now, he has to deal with the consequences.

The show is a feel-good comedy that also makes us realize the struggles therapists face, and how hard it is to cope with loss even when you’re an expert. We see Jason try to balance his relationship with his daughter and seek advice from Harrison Ford, his mentor, who has his own quirks. Another good thing about the show is that you’ll find many heartfelt moments throughout the show when you can’t help but root for the characters. It’s not perfect, but so is life, and it goes on. 

You can stream the first season right now on AppleTV+, and you’ll be pleasantly surprised. The episodes are quite short and nothing feels dragged out.

2. The Office
It’s the US version we’re talking about, even though the UK version aired earlier, but we feel that this show is better. The show ran from 2005 to 2013 totaling nine super-fun seasons and sports an IMDB rating of 9 out of 10. It’s a cult classic. Even if you’ve already seen the show, we recommend a re-watch. You know it’s that good.

Although it aired in 2005, it was made to be timeless and still feels surprisingly relevant in 2023. Steve Carell is the main lead, a sales manager managing his team and trying to uplift the lives of those he works with in his own way. A disclaimer though, some people might not like it and it can be a bit odd at times as some jokes tend to be daring, but it’s in all in good spirits.

Interestingly, this show has got more depth than you might expect. We see many heartfelt moments, heartbreaks, off-the-charts funny expressions, friendships, loss, and everything with an undertone of humor. You can watch it on Netflix and Prime Video.

3. Parks and Recreation
Amy Poehler
plays the part of a mid-level public official tasked with beautifying the town of Indiana. The show is a hilarious representation of the bureaucratic hoops that public officials have to jump through to bring about some real change. Amy is as relentless as the rest of her team is lazy, which makes for an interesting tussle in the office.

Nick Offerman is an eccentric boss with archaic and sometimes offensive thoughts that does everything he can to sabotage the progress because he doesn’t feel like it. But we see Amy win our hearts over with her perseverance. Moreover, it never feels out of place as you can instantly relate to different parts of it. From fights between friends to navigating marriages, pursuing ambitions, and having kids, this shows has everything you could possibly want in a comedy show.

4. Friends
Another cult classic, Friends is considered one of the all-time best comedy TV shows. With an IMDB rating of 8.9, it aired from 1994 to 2004 with ten seasons. Although it paved the way for many spin-offs, this show is a depiction of six friends as they lead their personal and professional lives.

The show revolves around Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry, David Schwimmer, Jennifer Aniston, Courtney Cox, and Lisa Kudrow. This group has the unique ability to turn any situation into a funny story and there’s never a dull moment in the show. It also has one of the best endings ever and you’ll be glad you decided to be a part of this journey.

This concludes our list of some of the best comedy shows that you can stream right now. All of these shows are timeless and definitely warrant a re-watch if you’re done with them. Be sure to check these shows out and make the most of your time. *** [Sources: IMDb.com | Written by VESELINA DZHINGAROVA | Editor: EKA ]

The skin on Your forearm could be 'Touchpad'

A team of scientists has developed a new technology that can make the skin on your arms and hands act like a touchpad for smartwatch. The technology, known as SkinTrack, developed by the Futures Interface Group, a research lab at Carnegie Mellon University.

This technology requires the user to wear rings and sensors attached to a rope smartwatch. The sensor has four electrodes, which used to receive high frequency electrical signals emitted by the ring when a finger touches the skin, to calculate the exact position of the finger.

This technology also enables the user to swipe and press the arms to interact with smartwatch, and even allows users to paint a picture in the arm. This technology also transcends the limitations of a small smartphone screen to allow users to drag the app out smartwatch and place them on the whole arm. 

Skintrack also can understand the hot key commands, thus enabling its users to mute incoming calls by simply writing 'S' on the arm or trace an "N" on your hand to open up your news app. SkinTrack can even track your finger when it’s hovering above the skin.
As quoted by The Verge, the Futures Interface Group has the plans to commercialize this technology. Currently, the team is working on ways of supplying constant power to the ring, to keep the signal remains stable when the body is in constant motion. Meanwhile, the team stressed that this technology poses no danger to the human body. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | THE VERGE]

People took more time for Facebook' rather than socializing within a day

How much time is spent by the person to open the Facebook in a day? According to the CEO of Facebook, Mark Zuckerberg, the figure was turned out to be quite longer, almost 1 hour. On the same time also applies to other applications owned by Facebook, namely Instagram and an instant messaging service, Messenger.
According to Mark Zuckerberg, the Users average 50 minutes per day on Facebook, Messenger and Instagram. (Picture from: http://adf.ly/1a0Sbe)
"Today, people around the world spend an average of 50 minutes per day to use Facebook, Instagram, and the Messenger," Zuckerberg said in the Facebook's financial report first quarter of 2016, as summarized from TechCrunch on Thursday, April 28, 2016. Zuckerberg insists that the 50 minutes it does not include the time spent to access other popular services of Facebook, ie WhatsApp.

"People" is meant by Zuckerberg is the user of the three such services globally. For Facebook, the number reached 1.65 billion. For Instagram registered 400 million users, while the Messenger 900 million.

More longer than the socializing time
For the record, the 50 minutes it turned out to be longer than the time spent by Americans for socializing. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2014, the Americans (ages 25-54 years old and have kids) on average only spend 43 minutes each day to do social activities such as visiting friends or attending an event, etc.

In the same occasion, Zuckerberg also reveals that to this year's Facebook profit more than tripled compared to the previous year, ie 1.51 billion dollars. And the Facebook stock prices also recorded an increase of 9 percent in the session after the publication of the financial statements of the social networking company. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | TECHCRUNCH]

Researchers have developed a flexible smartphone that can be bent

Researchers at Queen's University, Kingston, Ontario said that they've developed a smartphone that can be bent. This phone is named Reflex, a phone with a high resolution color screen, and has multi touch technology and the most special is the "input bend" technology, ie the phone can be controlled by means of bending it.

Roel Vertegaal, Director of the Human Media Lab at Queen's University said that the interaction between humans and computers will be a lot of change with the Reflex. He continued that, the real innovation is, from now on we can think about computer science and software and their interactions in three dimensions.

Screen that can be bent is in fact not found by Vertegaal and his team, but they use it to help them envision the future of computers. According to Vertegaal, he and his team used the screen and then think about what can be done with the screen in the context of the interaction between humans and computers.

The team, consisting eight researchers have already adapted the flexible display into a phone prototype that can be bent like a book bent to turn the page. With such capabilities, Vertegaal said that this opens up new possibilities that can be achieved by a computer.
Vertegaal predicted, the flexible smartphones like the Reflex can now be used by consumers in the next five years. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | SCIENCEDAILY]

The passive WiFi use less power

In the era of internet, WiFi is everywhere, providing remote wireless access to the Internet, and save us tripping over the cables. However, WiFi consumes a lot of energy, and the battery drain connected devices very quickly. Fortunately, engineers from the University of Washington (UW) is ready to save! They discovered a technique that enables WiFi uses 10,000 times less energy than normal.

The latest passive WiFi is also consumes 1,000 times less power, compared to Bluetooth. In fact, compared with conventional methods, this new technology uses almost none of power at all. Although currently only able to transmit data at rates of up to 11 Mbps (megabits per second), far lower than the peak of WiFi speed, which is the data transfer rate is 11 times higher than Bluetooth.

This discovery proves the concept of research that was built with a technique called backscattering WiFi, where the signals sent between a Wi-Fi router and a wireless receiver device manipulated. A previous study by UW showed that low power equipment can be used to reflect and "distort" this signal. Devices that are connected to receive a new distortion as unique data.

The passive WiFi is an evolution of the technique. First, connect to the Internet made only one, which is installed in the router, which is out of traditional Wi-Fi signal. Wi-Fi Sensor Passive reflect and absorb the signal, creating multiple streams of data that can be "bounced" against some of the receiving device.

"Our sensors can communicate with each router, smartphone, tablet or other electronic devices with WiFi chipsets," said Bryce Kellogg, a doctoral candidate student in electrical engineering at UW and co-author of the study, said in a statement.
"Cool part is that all of these devices can decode WiFi package that we made use of reflection, so you do not need any special equipment," said Kellogg. *** [EKA | FROM VARIOUS SOURCES | WASHINGTON EDU | ENGINEERING.COM]
