Samsung slams iPhone size with Galaxy Note 3 side-by-side

It should come as no surprise at this point that Samsung’s television video spots regarding the smartphone and tablet world are - at least in a large way - aimed directly at Apple.

House of Cards snubbed HBO for upstart Netflix

As House of Cards releases its second full season to Netflix, it’s become apparent that the internet-based video streaming company isn’t the upstart it once was.

Disney Google Play exclusive Mickey take takes on “Vinylmation”

There's a kind of stop-motion animation* called "vinylmation" right this minute, if you did not know, using vinyl toys as the models and just as simple a stop-motion technique as you like. While we've seen everything from Ninja Turtle Legos to Star Wars figures snapped in this bit of creational sway, today Disney lets loose a trailer for a short called "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" featuring a couple of rather plain-looking mice.
