Ronald McDonald to direct Minecraft movie

Wait a second, you might be saying, did the new Minecraft movie get the head of a fast-food franchise to direct? Not really. Sort of - but not really. Instead, they got the character Ronald McDonald, otherwise known as "Mac" from the TV show "It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" to direct their film. More accurately, they got the creator of the series, who is also that same actor, Rob McElhenney, to direct the Minecraft movie. This is big news, guys, this is huuuge news.

Vertical YouTube videos at long last

Vertical YouTube videos at long last

The YouTube app for Android - first, not only - has been updated to allow portrait-style videos. This is the first time YouTube has not smashed videos to their smaller, horizontal size when smartphones are held in portrait mode. It's also the first time YouTube has even really acknowledged vertical videos beyond pushing them in at the sides in a horizontal box. Now you can view all the videos your aunt and uncle filmed with their smartphones the wrong way because they can't turn their phones on their sides.

Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ tiniest detail revealed

The next Star Wars film has had a detail revealed by the strangest source imaginable. Mythbusters' Adam Savage spoke up during SDCC in an interview just published this week by io9, speaking about the show, movies, and specifically a detail about Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

NFL Game Pass brings games to Apple TV, Xbox and more

The NFL has offered a subscription streaming service for a while, but it has been limited in both availability and what it offers. That will be changing with NFL Game Pass, a new service that updates its previous offering to include support for additional devices like Apple TV and gaming consoles.

Cortana on Android: Q&A session

Cortana on Android: Q&A session

Over the weekend the APK (application file) for Cortana was leaked to the public for Android. This version of the app is not final, nor should it be assumed that all of its abilities are finalized. What we're doing today is taking a peek at what Cortana can do in the way of answering a variety of inane questions - just as most people do when they realize they can speak to their phone and have it speak back with a realistic humanoid voice.

Mortal Kombat X brings the rock with Tremor

Mortal Kombat X brings the rock with Tremor

The final Mortal Kombat X component of the Kombat Pack has arrived in this week's bundle. The bits and pieces you get here include new skins and a whole new character: Tremor. This fellow is rather rocky. He's basically Jax, but with rock arms instead of metal. He's also got less rockets going for him and more magic. Almost like he's Sandman from Spider-Man, but with more rocks and less sand. You may well have seen him before, too - he first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces.

Beme aims to beat Facebook by destroying Selfies

Beme aims to beat Facebook by destroying Selfies

A social network by the name of Beme (say it like "beam") has been introduced this week by a fellow named Casey Neistat. This network destroys the Selfie, and it destroys the self-conscious madness that infects every other social network. It does this by using your smartphone's proximity sensor as a capture button for your camera. "Being able to capture without having to stare is one of the most liberating interactions I've done since getting this device," says Neistat. We're inclined to believe him.
