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

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

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.

Sling TV’s new plan lets you stream to 3 devices at the same time

Sling TV, the Internet-based live television service, has introduced a new multi-stream plan that allows subscribers to stream to up to three devices simultaneously. The new plan is very similar to the single-streaming plan, but has a limited set of restrictions on certain channels, such as ESPN and ESPN 2, the kids’ extras like Disney XD and Boomerang, a bunch of Spanish-language channels, and more.

Original Star Wars Trilogy to hit select theaters this August

Original Star Wars Trilogy to hit select theaters this August

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

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.

Samsung launches 2016 lineup of 4K SUHD Smart TVs

Samsung launches 2016 lineup of 4K SUHD Smart TVs

Reports on Samsung's Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge flagship smartphones are quite positive and perhaps the Korean OEM is hoping some of that good fortune would also rub off on its TV sets, yet another ailing market. Announced last month, Samsung's roster of SUHD TV sets are now ready to take the market by storm. Boasting Quantum Display technology and barely existing bezels, these TVs, both curved and flat, not only try to offer a stunning design to fit your leaving room but all the conveniences that smart technologies can offer as well.

Follow Han and Chewie as they liberate Kashyyyk in the next Star Wars book

Follow Han and Chewie as they liberate Kashyyyk in the next Star Wars book

For those of us that have been fans of the Star Wars universe for decades, we used to have a pretty solid understanding of what happened after the movies. We know about Grand Admiral Thrawn, Mara Jade, the Emperor's clones, the New Jedi Order, and more. Unfortunately, when The Force Awakens was being made, all of those facts and stories were collectively dumped into the "Legends" category. As such, those stories can be thought of as some sort of alternate universe. And that means we have a lot of catching up to do with our old friends.

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is back, and it’s hopelessly disappointing

‘Fear the Walking Dead’ is back, and it’s hopelessly disappointing

AMC found itself a mega-hit with the launch of The Walking Dead, so much so that it has created a 'prequel' companion series called Fear the Walking Dead. The first season of Fear the Walking Dead wasn't very good, to put it kindly. Fans were willing to look the other way, though, banking on the hope of a better second season with The Walking Dead season 6 serving as a buffer between the two. Now FTWD's second season is upon us -- airing only a week after TWD's terrible season finale -- and it's every bit as disappointing as the first season. Warning: spoilers ahead.

Phaeton is an 80’s arcade shooter with a classic high-score prize

Back in the 80's, there was one way to prove that you were the best at a particular video game. All you needed to do was rack up your high score at the local arcade, and put your initials at the top of the board. If you were really good, you might even submit your score to Twin Galaxies, who kept track of all of the highest scores in the land. Well today, you can relive some of that enjoyment, thanks to author Ernest Cline.
