The rise of Netflix could cost cable companies $1 billion next year

By about 4 hours ago.

Cord-cutting feels like it’s been the “next big thing” for a decade now, but according to one new report, 2017 is going to be THE YEAR. We promise it’s true this time.

Management consultancy firm cg42 has published a report into the state of the cable industry, and it makes for bleak reading if you’re a Comcast exec.

Pokemon Go Charizard Spawn Rate

Finding a Charizard in Pokemon Go just got a whole lot easier

Finding a Charizard in Pokemon Go just got a whole lot easier

Over the past several weeks, Pokemon Go developer Niantic has been making significant changes—some obvious, some less so— to its popular mobile game.

First, the company launched Pokemon Go Plus — a device which can capture Pokemon and collect items from PokeStops with a single button press. Then the spawn rates of rare Pokemon suddenly shot up, with dozens of trainers confirming that they were seeing Pokemon in their neighborhoods they’d never seen before.

Now it appears that Niantic has made yet another major adjustment to Pokemon Go, as trainers are suddenly seeing evolved Pokemon at nests around the world.

The Lion King Remake Release Date

Hakuna Matata! Disney is making a new ‘The Lion King’ movie

By about 8 hours ago.

Hakuna Matata! Disney is making a new ‘The Lion King’ movie

There’s no doubt about it, The Lion King is one of Disney’s biggest hits ever. First released in 1994, the movie brought in almost $1 billion at the box office (which was almost unheard of back then) and inspired the very popular Broadway play by the same name, which is still performed around the world.

So, naturally, Disney wants to remake it using some of the new tech available today. That’s hardly surprising, considering that its newly released Jungle Book movie also earned close to $1 billion at the box office, and that next year’s Beauty and the Beast is already one of the most hotly anticipated movies of 2017.

80 high-resolution iPhone wallpapers for people who love movies

A few weeks ago, it suddenly dawned on me that I’d been using the same wallpaper on my iPhone’s Home Screen and Lock Screen for nearly two years. Personalization of electronic displays has never been all that important to me, but it was about time I made a change. Unfortunately, I didn’t really know where to look.

Thank goodness for Reddit.

Report: ‘Destiny 2’ will launch on PC, feature more interesting worlds to explore

By about 11 hours ago.

Not only is Destiny getting a sequel in 2017, but that sequel is coming to PC. That’s according to a new report from Kotaku’s Jason Schreier, who has led the charge in Destiny leaks over the past few years. Sources close to Bungie tell Schreier that Destiny 2 will be available on PC as well as PS4 and Xbox One, and that it should feel like a totally different game, rather than a massive expansion.

Spotify Daily Mix Playlists

Spotify’s new Daily Mix playlists will get better the more you listen to them

Spotify’s new Daily Mix playlists will get better the more you listen to them

Despite the fact that Spotify allows me to listen to any song I want to at any time, I often find myself using Pandora instead. It’s not that I prefer Pandora to Spotify, it’s just that I can’t be bothered to make my own playlists, and my Pandora account already features dozens of stations that have been tuned to my preferences.

On Tuesday, Spotify might have won me back over with the introduction of Daily Mix: a series of playlists which include your favorite songs as well as songs that the streaming service thinks you might enjoy.

The internet is obsessed with the next ‘Gangnam Style’, and it’s about fruit

Remember Psy’s incredibly addictive Gangnam Style ? Well, a similar sensation is taking over the internet, and you’ve probably seen it a few times since this morning: PPAP, which is short for Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen. Before you ask, it has nothing to do with Apple, the company. It’s about fruit and pens. More →

Video game publisher thanks pirates for their interest, offers them a discount

Video game publisher thanks pirates for their interest, offers them a discount

Video game piracy is a major concern for publishers and developers alike. While musicians can still hope that fans who steal their albums will spend money on merchandise or tickets for live shows, the opportunity for profit is lost when someone steals a game. That’s why game makers have to be very careful about the way they interact with pirates, because raking them over the coals never helps.

But you know what they say when the odds are stacked against you and there’s no viable solution on the table: “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.”

Donald Trump Vs Hillary Clinton Debate

Watch Stephen Colbert skewer Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s debate performances

Watch Stephen Colbert skewer Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton’s debate performances

On account of all the media hype surrounding last night’s Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, CBS yesterday aired a live taping of The Late Show with Stephen Colbert so that Colbert could really dive into the circus-like atmosphere that underscored the entirety of yesterday’s debate.

Hitting the nail on the head, Colbert opined that the debate lived up to the hype and it didn’t take long for Colbert to start delivering a few laugh out loud zingers and ridiculous observations.

Donald Trump still has no idea how to cyber

This isn’t the first time we had to listen to Donald Trump talk about “the cyber.” But you’d think he might have learned exactly what the word means or how to use it in a sentence before his first presidential debate against Hillary Clinton. After all, cyber is huge. Cyber is bound to come up. But no, Trump still can’t cyber correctly.

The 26 funniest Twitter reactions to Trump and Clinton’s first Presidential debate

Did you watch last night’s Presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton? Of course you did, Because, if we’re being honest, everyone did. In the days and hours preceding the event, many even speculated that the debate was going to pull in Super Bowl type viewership numbers.

Hardly a surprise, this year’s Presidential election has been nothing short of a circus the likes of which the American public has never seen before.

This split-screen view is the best way to watch tonight’s debate

I know what you’re thinking: the only good way to watch tonight’s debate is with one eye on the TV, one eye on your Canadian passport application, and both hands clutching as much alcohol as possible. But believe it or not, there is a way to enhance your experience.

C-SPAN (remember them?!) is livestreaming the debate in split screen, allowing you to keep your watchful gaze on Clinton and Trump at the same time. Catch every coughing fit, see incredulous glances as they happen, or just marvel at Donald’s hair all night long. The choice is yours.
