Torrents Time is the real successor to Popcorn Time

It's 2016, so we can't just pretend like torrenting isn't a thing anymore. We also still can't pretend that it's completely legal to pirate movies and TV shows. So consider this your warning that if you choose to engage in any of the activities listed below, that the consequences are your own.

India rejected Facebook’s free internet, and that’s a good thing

India rejected Facebook’s free internet, and that’s a good thing

Last year, Facebook launched their “Free Basics” program in India, which promised to bring free internet to all the citizens of the country. On the surface, that seems like a great and noble move. Unfortunately, not all was as it seemed, which is why in December, the country moved to ban the service. Facebook has been fighting hard ever since, but that battle appears to have come to a close.

Mimoco Star Wars PowerBot and PowerTube review

Mimoco Star Wars PowerBot and PowerTube review

There used to be a time where I only charged my cell phone every few days, and rarely worried about it actually dying on me. These days, if I don't charge my phone every single night, it will run out of juice before noon on the following day. And if I'm covering a show, or using it heavily, my iPhone 6 might not even last the day. This is why I like having a portable charger in my bag, so that I've always got a way to charge my phone.

Netflix will never release weekly shows, here’s why

Netflix will never release weekly shows, here’s why

Since I cut my cable back in 2008, I haven't really kept up with a lot of current shows. Instead, I've found that I prefer waiting until the whole thing is finished before jumping on board. Sure, I'm not in the loop with a lot of current shows, but I have a bad habit of forgetting some shows exist for a couple of years, while waiting for the next season. Plus, this way I get to binge-watch everything at once.

Instagram tests multiple account switching on iOS

Instagram tests multiple account switching on iOS

I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the best with social media. It's not that I don't know how it works, it's more that I just don't care. I've got an Instagram account that I'll use on rare occasions to share a picture or two, but I've got all the same people on Facebook, so I usually just post on there. However, there are a lot of people who use Instagram so much that they need multiple accounts, which can be a pain.

Chrome extension manages multiple Gmail inboxes for you

Chrome extension manages multiple Gmail inboxes for you

I've got a few different email accounts that I use. Some get funneled into the same Gmail account, but others I like to keep completely separate. When I need to access one of the other accounts, I'll just use a different browser, so that I'm not getting logged out of all of my other Google services. However, there's now an easier way to manage multiple Gmail accounts.
