Super Bowl 2015: this year’s best tech-related commercials

The time has arrived. The 2015 Super Bowl. It's that one day of the year where we throw parties with tons of food, focus on sitting on the couch in front of a large TV, and spend the afternoon watching a collection of the world's the most expensive commercials, all with the occasional break to show a sports game.

Amazon Prime to drop Doctor Who, other BBC shows on Feb 15

If you're a subscriber to Amazon Prime's Instant Video service and a big Doctor Who fan, we've got some bad news for you.
