HBO also suggested that they'll be bringing the app to Amazon Fire TV soon alongside a version for Amazon Fire TV Stick and Google's Chromecast.

Automakers hoarding driver data as Apple and Google circle

Automakers hoarding driver data as Apple and Google circle

Unable to ignore Apple and Google's efforts to infiltrate the dashboard, car makers are picking different routes to collaborate and compete, with driver data the prize. Platforms like Android Auto and CarPlay - which allow smartphone users to plug their device into a car, see a subset of apps and services more safely displayed on the vehicle's own systems, and control them both by voice and physical buttons - are increasingly being expected by new car buyers. Tensions around what data sharing is required has slowed the spread, however, as manufacturers wrestle with the pros and cons of allowing Apple and Google into their dashboards.

New Horizon’s weirdest cargo will warm your heart

New Horizon’s weirdest cargo will warm your heart

Aboard the New Horizons craft as it edges closer to Pluto than we've ever been before is carried the ashes of its discoverer. Astronomer Clyde Tombaugh was the man that discovered our celestial neighbor Pluto. Now - thanks to some thoughtful NASA engineers - Tombaugh's mortal remains will be the closest that have ever traveled to our most distant Solar System cousin. This week NASA spoke with Tombaugh's children. "My Dad always said if he ever had the chance," said Tombaugh's son "he’d love to visit the planets in the solar system and around other stars." Now he will.

2016 Scion iM first-drive – Goodbye xB, hello maturity

2016 Scion iM first-drive – Goodbye xB, hello maturity

Scion made its name with a bizarre hatchback, the xB, and is hoping to revive its fortunes with the 2016 iM. Targeting fun-seeking but cash-poor Millennials with a sub-$20k sticker price and lashings of standard kit, the iM not only courts those who might covet a Golf or a Mazda 3, but drivers that might otherwise be looking to a four-year-old used car instead of something new off the forecourt. Times are tough, though, and so rather than cook up a new car from scratch, Scion has followed the same approach that netted the perky FR-S roadster for its range and based the iM on an existing design.

Google seeking art to put on its self-driving cars

Do you live in California and have artistic inclinations? If so, Google has an exciting opportunity for you. Later this year its self-driving cars will be zipping around Mountain View, California adorned with artwork selected from among submissions sent in by the population at large. It is kind of like Google Doodles, only the "doodles" will be on the side of the self-driving cars for a month or longer, depending on how Google feels about it. The Internet giant will accept submissions soon.

Google’s self-driving pod cars now on California public roads

Google’s self-driving pod cars now on California public roads

Google has dispatched its fleet of autonomous cars onto the public roads of California, though the pod-like prototypes won't be racing human drivers. While the longer-running fleet of converted Toyota and Lexus cars have been keeping up with traffic in the 1m+ miles of test driving they've done already, Google has opted to cap the top-speed of its more home-designed cars at just 25mph, which the search giant's Google X research division says is intended to be "neighborhood-friendly".

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ gets series order from Starz

Neil Gaiman’s ‘American Gods’ gets series order from Starz

Neil Gaiman's 'American Gods' will be arriving on your TV as a drama series thanks to a recent order from Starz. There have been rumbles and hopes in the past that an adaption would come about, but for different reasons they've all fallen through. HBO, for example, was set to produce a series based on American Gods a few years ago, but after a couple years they ended up passing it on. From there the production was nabbed by FremantleMedia, and it is that company that has received the order from Starz.

Raspberry Pi’s official case for matchbox-sized PC, cheaper than a box of matches

Raspberry Pi, the micro-sized PC adored by hackers and maker hobbyists, has been getting a lot of love lately in the form of new accessories and features. Now users can give the little device a proper housing, thanks to the first official case from the Raspberry Pi Foundation. While users often piece together some form of a case themselves — with Lego being a popular option — the best part about the official offering is that it'll cost less than a combo meal at the drive-thru: just over $8!

As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

As WWDC ends, the mood in the trenches is neighborly

Apple’s WWDC is over for another year, and as the dust settles on the iOS 9, Apple Music, and OS X El Capitan launch, it’s a chance to reflect on five days of sessions. It’s hard to gauge the tone of a week-long developer event from a fast-paced keynote - even with an Apple Music section which went on too long, and which several developers I spoke to suspected was padded to fill up space originally intended for an Apple TV SDK announcement. If there can be such a thing as an overarching theme, though, it felt like it might be harmonious co-existence.

Google launches go-to hub for lost phones and privacy

Google launches go-to hub for lost phones and privacy

Let's face it, even with all the remote locking, wiping, and tracking tools in the world, when your phone gets stolen you want one simple place to handle it. Google has launched just that, and with bells on it, in the shape of My Account, a centralized hub from which device security can be managed and account passwords changed, in the case of an emergency. However, it's for more than just emergencies, with Google also using the hub as an interface for all of its personalized tools and services.
