The Game of Thrones Starbucks cup: A special guest star in season 8

There was a lot to take in during last night's episode of Game of Thrones, but eagle-eyed viewers caught something that was distinctly out of place: a Starbucks coffee cup. Yes, it appears that the people of Winterfell don't mind partaking some more modern luxuries, especially now that winter has arrived and everyone needs a warm pick-me-up from time to time.

Game of Thrones season 8, episode 4 analysis: The Last of the Starks

This short, final season of Game of Thrones is quickly approaching its finale, and there are a lot of loose ends to tie up in a fairly short amount of time. Now that the Long Night has come and gone, our attention turns back to the conflict of men, with the question of who will rule Westeros still up in the air. It’s Daenerys vs. Cersei with the North acting a little bit tired of this whole thing, so who knows how this will all play out?

But here's the deal - this is the most balanced version of Boba Fett's spaceship offered yet.

RIP creepy movie Sonic, 2019-2019

RIP creepy movie Sonic, 2019-2019

Sonic the Hedgehog fans complaining about Sonic the Hedgehog is nothing new. I should know - Sonic the Hedgehog was the very first video game I played when I was a kid, and throughout the years, I've tried to roll with the punches without feeling too bitter about the character's years-long downturn. Sonic fans have learned to accept mediocrity over the past 15 years or so, but it seems that even Sonic's low points couldn't prepare them for the official reveal of the upcoming Sonic the Hedgehog movie.

Sonic the Hedgehog will see a few changes before film premieres

Translating video games into the big screen isn't easy, especially if you insist that the translation is a live-action one. The film industry is filled with examples of such attempts, many of which have ended up as box office catastrophes.

The Internet, however, gave it a big "NO!" and now everyone involved might be scrambling to fix the blue hedgehog's teeth.

Ingress the Animation is finally out on Netflix worldwide

Ingress the Animation is finally out on Netflix worldwide

Before it became famous for Pokemon GO, Niantic Labs, which at one point was also a Google property, tried to make a name for itself with Ingress, a mobile augmented reality sci-fi game. It had its share of fans but the high-concept game and almost unexciting mechanics made it a little difficult to get started and get hooked. Since then, the game has been "rebooted" and now has its own Netflix animated series that could help spark some interest in the game. Or at least offer fan service to its remaining players.

Android TV isn’t dead yet, new hardware coming soon

Android TV isn’t dead yet, new hardware coming soon

It almost seems as if Android is fated to forever remain a smartphone platform all the way to the end of its life. While it does have various incarnations in wearables, automobiles, and TVs, those don't seem to gain as much traction as Android's true smartphone form. Android TV, in particular, seems to have been left by the wayside in the rather aggressive entertainment market. Not so, says Google, and it is better than ever before and will become even better in the coming weeks.
