Apple TV tvOS 11 to get multi-user, picture-in-picture features

With all the focus on smart speakers like Amazon Echo, Google Home, and soon Harman Kardon "Invoke", the original smart appliance has seemingly been pushed out of the picture.

New Star Wars ANH extended scene ties in Sith and Rogue One

A new "Extended Death Star Meeting Scene" has surfaced at Star Wars Celebration 2017. In this scene, generally known for its first appearance of Tarkin and discussion of the power of the Death Star, we hear the word "Sith" for the first time in the original trilogy.

Thor: Ragnarok Trailer song, teaser, Easter Eggs breakdown

The first full-length Thor: Ragnarok trailer has been released, and they call it a teaser! Ha, just but a teaser - but it's long enough to be a full trailer.

Now let's have a peek at the odder bits of what we're looking at throughout the trailer, and what we're listening to while we do it.

That system is now rolling out, with users seeing the thumb ratings instead of the stars that have long dotted the platform. At the heart of the problem, according to Netflix, was a misunderstanding of what the stars meant, and so it is making things more clear.
