‘Simpsons’ full series marathon coming to FXX (again) in November

This isn't deja vu, it's just happening again: FXX plans to have another The Simpsons every episode marathon starting around Thanksgiving and running into early December, the same thing it did back in 2014.

Skype Teams expected to launch in January 2017, beta in November

Earlier in the month, we heard that Microsoft was plotting a competitor to Slack under its Skype branding. This new program, Skype Teams, was rumored to borrow a fair number of features while at the same time attempting to improve on the experience Slack offers its users through things like deep integration with Office 365. Now, we're hearing that Skype Teams could launch as early as January, with Microsoft rolling out a large scale beta before then.

Why the iPhone 7 Plus camera is worth the upgrade

Why the iPhone 7 Plus camera is worth the upgrade

Although on paper the new handset's 12-megapixels may look pretty much the same as the 12-megapixels the iPhone 6s offered before it, in reality it's all-change in the iPhone 7's top left corner. And, as I discovered while reviewing both the iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus, that has an unexpectedly big impact on the photos you can capture, not to mention which version of Apple's smartphone that I'd recommend.

Google Wifi router detailed as daisy-chain mesh machine

A rumor has surfaced about the next device in Google's oncoming collection of Pixel and Pixel-friendly machines. This one goes by the name Google Wifi, and it'll be a Wi-fi router the likes of which we've sort-of seen before. Google's released what we might classify as a test run of this device before in the Google OnHub for Google On and Google Home. Now it would appear that the device - or something very similar - will do something ever-so-slightly different and will cost a bit less.

Why Nintendo chose iPhone over Android

Why Nintendo chose iPhone over Android

It's become obvious that Apple has somehow shaken hands with Nintendo in a way that's brought the first real Nintendo-made Nintendo character game to their platform first.

Today we find out why it was Apple, not Google and Android, that got to get the game first.

Civilization VI system requirements released

With so many high profile game releases coming up before the end of 2016 - Titanfall 2, Pokemon Sun and Moon, Battlefield 1 - you'd be forgiven if, like me, you forgot that Civilization VI is also scheduled for an autumn launch. There are a lot of people out there looking forward to Civilization VI (or, on the other hand, hoping for a return to form after the stumble that was Beyond Earth), and ahead of its October 21 launch, Firaxis and 2K Games have unleashed the game's system requirements.
