Smartwatch fans have precious few choices when it comes to devices that don’t look like a terrible cross between a Swatch watch and a Casio wrist calculator. Beginning soon, however, that is going to change. Apple is expected to announce Apple Watch launch details during its event on March 9th, and the device will begin shipping in April, according to earlier comments made by Apple CEO Tim Cook.

And soon, U.S. consumers will have another beautiful choice for a smartwatch thanks to a new announcement from LG and AT&T on Sunday. More →

The 2015 edition of the Mobile World Congress show that is about to kick off in Barcelona, Spain will likely be one of the best in recent years when it comes to new hardware announcements, as at least two hot mobile devices will be unveiled during the show — the HTC One M9 and Samsung Galaxy S6 each have their own special events on Sunday.

But that’s not all that’s happening at MWC, as there will be plenty of interesting products on display coming from much smaller players. More →

The annual Mobile World Congress trade show has been a bit stale in recent years, since most big smartphone vendors have been hosting their own dedicated press conferences to make key announcements. This year, however, that is most certainly not the case. Three of the biggest smartphones of the year — the Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 edge and HTC One M9 — will all be unveiled tomorrow, and BGR will be on hand reporting live as news breaks from Barcelona, Spain.

When Will Winter End

I’m starting to think that this winter will never end

I’m starting to think that this winter will never end

I live in New York City and I can’t remember the last time I left my apartment just to take a stroll.

If I walk out that door, it’s because I need food or because I have a previous obligation; work or social. The reason I’m not willingly going outdoors isn’t that I’m lazy (although that isn’t helping), it’s because the temperature has been hovering around freezing for nearly two months straight.

Many people may have already tried Airbnb and similar services that offer great alternatives to hotels, but not many can say they were able to rent an entire village. That’s apparently one possibility available to tourists traveling through Hungary, as they’ll be able to rent an entire village, complete with the horse in the picture above, for just around €700 a day, The Guardian reports.

House Of Cards Season 3

Watch House of Cards season 3 on Netflix right now

By on February 27, 2015 at 7:00 PM.

Netflix’s critically acclaimed series House of Cards is significant for a number of reasons. The show itself is a fan favorite that has won awards and been touted as the first Netflix show to truly rival productions from top networks like HBO. Beyond that, however, House of Cards was Netflix’s first big-budget self-produced show, and it let the world know that the company wasn’t just going to be a portal for dusty old movies and stale TV shows — it was going to be a major digital network.

And now, the hotly anticipated third season of House of Cards is finally here. More →

Infamous ‘revenge porn’ kingpin asks Google to remove ‘unauthorized’ pictures of him from searches

It looks like one of the Internet’s biggest scumbags is trying to exercise his “right to be forgotten.” Ars Technica reports that Craig Brittain, the former proprietor of a “revenge porn” website, has filed requests under the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA) to have Google remove 23 links that contain accounts of his past actions, including a link to an FTC press release describing its settlement with him. Brittain says that the offending links contain “unauthorized use of photos of me and other related information.”
