Fresh Prince of Bel-Air is (maybe) getting a reboot, too

You can add Will Smith's popular 90s sitcom The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air to the list of TV shows getting a reboot. According to recent reports, Smith's production company has a project in the pipeline that will either be a reboot of Fresh Prince, or will be a sitcom series that is similar in nature -- reports are conflicting, but the more reliable of the sources indicate the upcoming show will be in the vein of Fresh Prince rather than a direct update. It has been just under 20 years since Fresh Prince wrapped up.

Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

Touchjet WAVE turns any TV into an Android Surface Hub

We already have smart TVs, even those that run Android, but interacting with them still isn't something that has settled into a standard. You've got remote controls, gamepads, and even keyboard and mouse. So why not throw in two more ways? Like touch and a stylus. If that sounds almost familiar, then you've probably heard of Microsoft's Surface Hub. The Touchjet WAVE can do that too but at a fraction of the price and with the more open and more flexible Android. That is, if the crowdfunding campaign gets off the ground.

The Walking Dead’s patient zero has been revealed

If you’re a fan of the show, you know by now that the so-called prequel — more aptly described as a companion series — to The Walking Dead will be premiering this month, and it’ll be called Fear the Walking Dead. That show has been progressively teased, starting first with what seemed to be a very lackluster teaser. We got a fleshed out look at this scene in the first full-length trailer, and as it turns out that full look showed fans far more than they realized: patient zero. Note: Spoilers ahead!

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Hulu saves you from yourself, says no to binge watching

Netflix, as any subscriber knows, is all about entertainment gluttony (not that it explicitly encourages such behavior). The video streaming service elects to drop full seasons at once, and report after report indicates what users already know: viewers, when given a full season in a single moment, will largely watch it all in binging sessions, consuming episode after episode until the full season has been completed in a mere weekend or so. Hulu frowns upon this consumption habit and recently revealed it will not be supporting it.
