All things considered, it’s been a pretty fantastic decade or so for fans of massive blockbuster movies. From the Lord of the Rings trilogy to the rise of Marvel to the return of Star Wars, we really can’t complain, but that doesn’t mean we can’t wonder what might have been if some of the more interesting projects in the industry didn’t get canned.
By most accounts, the transition to Material Design has been a successful one for Android. It’s more responsive, it’s easier on the eyes and it’s even made its way over to iOS to some degree. So it only makes sense that Google would take what it’s learned from Android and implement the best elements in the Chrome browser.
Earlier this morning, everyone on Louis C.K.’s mailing list got an email letting them know that episode one of something called Horace and Pete is now available to download for $5.

In other words, business is booming for the most popular social network on the planet.

After testing its delivery service in New York City for months, UberRUSH finally launched in October of last year. If you read our review, you already know how effective (and affordable) the service can be, but this week, Uber made it even easier for businesses to utilize UberRUSH for same-day deliveries. More →
The final Republican debate before the Iowa causes has arrived, but frontrunner Donald Trump is nowhere to found. If you keep up with the news (or even if you don’t), you’ve probably heard by now that Trump decided to boycott the Fox News/Google GOP debate after learning that Fox News anchor Megyn Kelly would once again be a moderator.
Unsurprisingly, one of the hottest toys of the holiday season was Sphero’s BB-8 App-Enabled Droid. It’s a scale model of the droid that appeared Star Wars: The Force Awakens, and can be controlled with a smartphone app from up to 30 meters away.
