Watch: Game of Thrones season 5 preview sets the stage for an epic premiere

Game of Thrones fans, we’re now less than one month away from finally seeing season 5 of the epic HBO series premiere on Sunday, April 12th at 9:00 p.m. EDT. Yes, we’ll all have to endure another few weeks of “winter is coming” tweets, but it’s a small price to pay for what is expected to be one of the show’s best seasons so far.

With just a few weeks left before the season premiere, you can also expect to see HBO turn up the heat on teasers, trailers, promotional videos and previews in an effort to get fans excited for the upcoming season. And now, HBO has released a brand new preview video to set the stage for Game of Thrones season 5. More →

With a bustling stand-up scene and perhaps the best Improv scene on the planet, Chicago is more often than not the place aspiring comedians flock to as they embark on their comedy careers. Indeed, the list of comedy greats who got their start in Chicago is seemingly endless: Tina Fey, Stephen Colbert, Bill Murray, John Belushi, Steve Carrell, Bob Odenkirk, Chris Farley, and Adam McKay are just a few of many who come to mind.

Hilarious: Watch Obama read mean tweets about himself live on Kimmel

Jimmy Kimmel’s “mean tweets” segment — in which celebrities read mean tweets about themselves posted by random people on Twitter — is definitely one of his funnier routines. This week, however, Kimmel went beyond Katy Perry and Iggy Azalea and recruited president Barack Obama to read some of the Internet’s hot takes on his presidency. More →

Springfield, Illinois hands Cobra Commander the keys to the city

There are days in the life of every politician when they have to look at their daily schedules and say to themselves, “Is all the power I have really worth this?” We imagine that J. Michael Houston, the mayor of Springfield, Illinois, had such a moment on Wednesday when he handed over the keys to his city to a man dressed up in a Cobra Commander outfit, as pictured above.

House of Cards Season 3

House of Cards Season 3 was filmed in stunning 6K

House of Cards Season 3 was filmed in stunning 6K

Always looking to stay ahead of the curve, Netflix CEO Reed Hastings in early 2014 announced that all Netflix original shows would be recorded in 4K. Now comes word that Netflix is looking to push the envelope even further, with The Hollywood Reporter reporting that the recently aired third season of House of Cards was shot in 6K.

While 4K content, a visual marvel in its own right, boasts 4 times as many pixels as traditional 1080p HD content, 6K boasts approximately 9 times as many pixels as traditional HD. I suppose the next best thing to watching House of Cards is feeling as if you’re right there in the Oval Office with Frank Underwood himself.

Watch this now: The latest Game of Thrones season 5 trailer is the best yet

Apple’s last few events have really shown us that the company is changing in a number of ways. For example, Apple used to only announce products that were weeks away from shipping. With things like the Mac Pro, Apple Watch and new Retina Macbook, that’s simply no longer the case. Apple also changed the format of its events a bit. Whereas Steve Jobs used to start things off by running through some impressive numbers for a while, we’ve now seen two different Apple events kick off with guest appearances from other companies.

It seems odd, but we couldn’t be happier with the guest appearance that kicked things off during the Apple Watch event on Monday. More →

Apple’s big event is underway: First up, HBO is coming to Apple TV without a pay TV subscription

Apple is going to try to compete with Swiss watchmakers? Is it crazy? A $5,000 Apple Watch? A $10,000 Apple Watch? The battery will only last for a few hours, and no one will want to get rid of their fancy Rolexes and switch to a smartwatch! Did we cover all the most common complaints of skeptics? We undoubtedly missed a few, and Apple is certainly no stranger to skepticism…

But now it’s time to put all of that behind us and find out exactly what Apple has in store for us with its upcoming new Apple Watch. When will it launch? How will apps work? How much will it cost? All these questions and more will be answered during Apple’s big Apple Watch event on Monday, and now the show is officially underway. More →

Apple Product Placement Movies 2014

Apple is the 2014 king of movie product placement

Apple is the 2014 king of movie product placement

Whether or not you’re watching TV at home or relaxing at the movies, Apple products have a tendency to pop up on-screen at any moment. Though Apple doesn’t pay for product placement, it certainly has no problem with bestowing large boxes of Apple hardware to production companies in the hopes that iPhones and Macs make it onto some of the biggest TV and movie hits of the year.

That being the case, it shouldn’t come as much of a surprise that Apple was the recent recipient of a Brandcameo Product Placement Award for getting more screen time in more top movies than any other brand.
