CBS All Access streams against HBO/Netflix with commercials

Just in case you heard that CBS was going to sneak up on Netflix and yesterday’s big reveal of HBO’s streaming service, think again. CBS All Access, as they’re calling it, has quite a few caveats to get over before it’ll be sneaking up on any competing service. First, and perhaps most important, they’ll be continuing to show commercials during your viewing of shows even after you’ve paid for their service. Advertisements on your already paid-for service.

Android Lollipop statue revealed at mini Google gathering

This morning a Google mini-event took place before the reveal of the newest addition to the company’s collection of statues. This statue was of Android 5.0 Lollipop.

Imgur has made a new GIF format for the modern age

Animated GIFs and the Internet go together like peanut butter and jelly. Whether your Internet browsing habits take you to Reddit, Tumblr, or elsewhere, you likely run into multiple GIFs per day, each expressing a thought or emotion or showing off the best part of a video in wonderful looping fashion. The Internet of today is far different than the Internet that existed when the first GIF was born, of course, and it was only a matter of time before the format we all know and love changed to suit modern needs. Thus was born the GIFV ("jiffy") format.

DREDD mini-movies: EP Adi Shankar confirms pseudo-sequels

DREDD mini-movies: EP Adi Shankar confirms pseudo-sequels

Last year Adi Shankar first mentioned that he’d like to create at least one more DREDD movie, no matter how it’d have to be made. Here and now, Shankar confirms that his project is a go. Not an official feature-length DREDD 2, but something stranger. Like some of the other short odd projects Shankar has created over the past couple of years, DREDD will continue with this man with the Dark Judges. Not necessarily having anything to do with Karl Urban or Judge Dredd himself, The Four Dark Judges come from a parallel dimension - and they’re especially nasty.

Jeff Goldblum tips Independence Day 2, gets fancy with GE

When you think about Jeff Goldblum, you likely think about one of three roles. He was in The Fly, he was in Jurassic Park, and he was in Independence Day.

One is Independence Day 2 - a script is just being written now, so we won’t see that for a while. The other is an advertisement for a General Electric lightbulb.
