The timing, however, practically pits Amazon against the video streaming giant known as Netflix.

This is the worst phone accessory ever made

This is the worst phone accessory ever made

This week a USB power device has been discovered to be absolutely terrible by a device tester by the name of Clive Mitchell. He's in the business of testing things like these, and he's smart about how power works. And how it's not supposed to work. And how a USB device like the one you're going to see should NOT be lighting up a light bulb like you're about to see. This is why we can't have nice (off-brand) things.

AMC Entertainment CEO not opposed to allowing texting in theaters

Since the first cell phone and pager was invented, there have been advertisements before we watch movies in theaters that tell people not to use their mobiles and to mute them in the theater. Every time I go to the movie it seems like a handful of people ignore those warnings. Some even talk during the film making me want to throat punch them. AMC Entertainment is the company that runs AMC theaters and the company has a new CEO called Adam Aron.

Crosley’s 2016 Record Store Day Turntable Review

A special edition of the Crosley Cruiser portable turntable (read: vinyl record player) is sitting on our review bench today, Mickey Mouse-infused. This version of the Crosley Cruiser has a couple of images of the Disney mouse, both rolling pretty hard with his own stack of records as such. This piece of equipment has the same internals as you'd find on a classic Cruiser model, but here it has a limited edition set of images to adorn its exterior - and under the hood.

Star Wars is a pretty big deal this year. The Force Awakens just recently came out on Blu-ray, and we just got our first look at Rogue One. But the original trilogy is still near to many of our hearts, and it's going to be getting some love on the big screen later this year.

Doctor Strange’s first trailer enchants, disorients

DC has had its time in the limelight with the successful, despite critics' opinions, Batman v Superman, but in the coming months, Marvel, either directly or indirectly, will be hogging the theaters. In addition to Captain America: Civil War, X-Men: Apocalypse, and Netflx's Luke Cage, we are looking at another MCU film near the end of the year, one that's perhaps riskier than previous films. Yes, Doctor Strange will be teleporting to cinemas in November, but not before he makes a pit stop in the film's first trailer.

Spider-Man Homecoming is Marvel’s first solo Spidey film

Spider-Man Homecoming is Marvel’s first solo Spidey film

One of the most exciting things in the trailer for Captain America: Civil War was the brief scene with Spider-Man helping Iron Man's team. I particularly like it when Tony Stark yells out "Underoos!" and Spidey flips into action taking Cap's shield. I totally had those Spider-Man Undergoes growing up. While the first time that Spidey shows up in a Marvel film will be in Civil War, Marvel has already announced the title of Spidey's first solo film under the Marvel umbrella.
