Amazon’s ‘The Tick’ original comedy series arrives on August 25

One pilot episode and a lot of waiting later and we finally have a premiere date for the first season of Amazon's original 'The Tick' series: August 25. Amazon announced the premiere date in a new (very short) teaser trailer, which doesn't show any footage but does hint at the show's comedic nature.

Streaming boxes and sticks with piracy add-ons targeted in latest EU ruling

Streaming boxes and sticks with piracy add-ons targeted in latest EU ruling

Streaming set-top-boxes and sticks are available widely on websites like eBay, and many of them are preinstalled with 'piracy add-ons' that make it easy to watch content outside the bounds of legal sites. A particularly popular example is the Amazon Fire Stick jailbroken with Kodi installed, which is itself used to access illegally-provided TV shows and movies through various repos. One Dutch seller of these products was recently the subject of a legal matter that made its way to the EU, which has now ruled that the sale of such devices is illegal.

Facebook Surround 360 cameras x6 and x24: traveling without moving

Two new cameras have been announced by Facebook - two cameras that look very much like spherical ball cameras we've seen in the recent past. These devices are the Facebook Surround 360 x24 and the Surround 360 x6. The larger device is extremely similar to the camera Facebook showed at F8 in 2016 - save the shape, of course. The smaller device is brand new, made to be sold to the wider public, with a much smaller and more manageable industrial design.

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.

While it's not clear whether the makers of Rogue One had access to the scene we're seeing today, it IS clear that major potential for coincidence is alive and well here in 2017.

YouTube’s new ad revenue restrictions target video thieves

YouTube’s new ad revenue restrictions target video thieves

Back in 2007, YouTube launched its YouTube Partner Program, a way for its creators to monetize their videos. In the years since, many scammers and opportunistic intellectual thieves have swiped creators' videos and re-uploaded them under their own accounts to try and make some ad revenue money.

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

This iPhone 8 video shows what Galaxy S8 does right and LG G6 does wrong

What we see here is style - design finesse - a sense of assuredness in the phone's overall excellence. That's what Apple and Samsung have, or appear to have, that most other phone companies lack.

YouTube mobile livestreaming arrives for some channels

YouTube has offered livestreaming from mobile for awhile, but only for channels that have at least 10,000 subscribers.
