Star Trek 3 to switch directors

Star Trek 3 to switch directors

The third Star Trek movie in our modern alternate-dimension collection of big screen releases has collected a new director. J.J. Abrams directed both Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013) - now it's time to hand the reigns over to none other than Justin Lin. This is the same director that brought you the last four Fast and Furious films, the highest-earning releases in the series. He's also the producer and the director on the next Bourne movie set to be released inside 2016.

After that time, the fate of the film is unknown - to the public, anyway. This film opening has been authorized by Sony officially.

Google+ can now automatically fix up your videos

Recording videos from our mobile devices is easy peasy, thanks to developments in camera sensors and photography apps. But no matter our best efforts and best technology, we sometimes still end up with blurry shots, shaky frames, washed out colors, and dark results. If that is usually your case, Google+ is now providing a one-click solution called Auto Enhance that will, as the name says, try to touch up your recorded video to make them look and sound better than ever before.

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note Edge camera

Samsung Galaxy Note 4 vs Note Edge camera

When we first saw the Galaxy Note 4 at a Samsung conference earlier this year, Samsung also showed us the Galaxy Note Edge. At that time, it wasn't entirely apparent - they're said to come with the same cameras. Since then, we've put them to the test. Some devices perform VERY different from one another even though they're supposed to have the same hardware - can Samsung stay true to its word here?

Yoda returns to Star Wars with Frank Oz in tow

While there's not yet word of whether or not the ghost of Yoda will return for Episode 7 of the Star Wars live action movie series, Rebels has been confirmed.

Instagram has 300 million active users, may be bigger than Twitter

Instagram has announced via a blog post they are (probably) larger than Twitter. Their service has grown to well over 300 million users, but the real story is how many are using it. According to Instagram, they have a monthly active user number almost as high as their overall user metrics. At 284 million users monthly, they’ve likely outpaced Twitter. Put that way, it’s easy to see why Twitter recently copied the very thing people like about Instagram, rolling in the same filters and ease-of-use.

Hangouts update brings stickers, location awareness

Hangouts update brings stickers, location awareness

Last night, at least one member of the Google Hangouts team posted to their Google+ social feed that sleep was going to be tough, and that we’d see an update for Hangouts today.

Nope, we got stickers — and last-seen timestamps along with location sharing. There are also filters for video chat, where you can mask yourself in sepia, black and white, or vignette, among other filters.
