Star Wars is a huge phenomenon and Disney is making sure the hype continues now that its hit movie has already been released on Blu-ray, DVD and digital HD download. Star Wars: The Force Awakens proved to fans there’s hope for the Star Wars universe, and it made a boatload of cash for Disney in the process. While we wait for Rogue One and Episode VIII to roll out, Disney decided to reshoot Episode VII for us, retelling the story in an entirely different way — with the help of emoji. More →
Last month, we were blown away by a new hoverboard video that was so amazing most everyone decided that it had to be fake. The hoverboard in question – dubbed the Flyboard Air – was built by Zapata Racing and featured seemingly impossible specs: autonomous flight up to 10,000 feet, a top speed of 93 mph and 10 minutes of flying time.
If you are a character in the world of Game of Thrones, chances are you will either be killed by someone you love and respect or you will be forced to kill someone you love and respect at some point in your life.
In fact, the surprising and brutal deaths have become the show’s calling card over the years, but when you have dozens of characters to keep track of, it can be difficult to remember who killed who.
Well, I suppose it was inevitable. Late last week I wrote a quick post about how I make my iPhone look so much better than yours. Long story short, people constantly email me each time I publish an article with a photo of my iPhone at the top. Why? Because they want the wallpapers I use on my iPhone. So in this post I decided to let people in on the not-so-secret secret of how I make the wallpapers I use.
Needless to say, I’ve received about 175 emails since that article ran from people asking me to send them the wallpapers pictured in the post. Let’s try something different this time… More →
After a number of dispiriting rocket landing failures, SpaceX has been on something of a roll lately. This past December, SpaceX successfully nailed its first rocket landing when it managed to launch a Falcon 9 into space and bring the booster back down to earth, landing it on a concrete landing pad.
Why is the iPhone 6s Plus so gigantic and unwieldy when Samsung’s Galaxy S7 edge is wonderfully compact and manageable? Both smartphones have screens that measure 5.5 inches diagonally, so they should be reasonably comparable in size. But alas, the Galaxy S7 edge is a pleasure to use with one hand while the iPhone 6s Plus is far too huge for most users to comfortably manage.
The reason is partially because of Apple’s need to keep that great big home button situated beneath the screen for Touch ID fingerprint authentication. Soon, however, Apple might be able to ditch the home button without having to move its fingerprint scanner to a less convenient position on the back of the phone. More →

Late last year in the heart of the holiday shopping season, we tried something new here at BGR. Instead of running a bunch of holiday-themed gift guides with the same old boring stuff you see on every other site, we published an “un-gift guide” packed with cool gear you couldn’t find in any other guide. We got tons of great feedback after publishing that unique guide, so we’re sticking with the theme.
This year ahead of Mother’s Day, gift guides are a dime a dozen. But unfortunately, they’re stuffed full of junk like Groupons for massages and discounted gardening tools. News flash: it’s 2016, not 1916. Being a mother doesn’t automatically mean you’re not a fan of fun gifts and cool technology, and we’re sick of all the assumptions to the contrary.
Welcome to our Mother’s Day gift guide, where you’ll find 10 tech-focused items that cool mothers young and old are going to love. And since you waited until the last minute to get your mother a Mother’s Day gift, we made sure that all 10 are eligible for free Prime shipping on Amazon. It’s OK, you can thank us later. More →
Hulu is giving cable companies yet another reason to worry. According to a recent report from The Wall Street Journal, Hulu is currently developing a new subscription service that would allow customers to stream live feeds of broadcast and cable channels, similar to what Sling TV and PlayStation Vue offer.
The force has definitely now been awakened, and the world can’t wait to see what happens next. Unfortunately, we still have a long wait ahead of us before Disney’s first followup to Star Wars: The Force Awakens hits theaters on December 15th, 2017. But the good news is that pretty much every single news agency on the internet is doing everything it can to get details surrounding the still untitled Star Wars: Episode VIII movie, and now we’ve been treated to some great aerial set photos as production of the new film carries on in England.
