The 15 best Netflix original series


2020 has been a particularly long “year,” but our streaming subscriptions flourish more than ever. It’s entirely likely that you or someone you know has recently uttered the phrase “I’ve watched everything in my queue,” or “I’ve seen everything on Netflix.”

No, sweetie, you haven’t.

Whether you’ve burned through your queue or your recommendations, Netflix still contains untold treasures should you wish to unlock them (since there’s still no A-Z search function, just assume you’ve glimpsed a mere tip of the iceberg).  Read More

‘The Hobbit’ is getting a new audio book edition read by Andy Serkis

As if we needed an excuse to dive back into J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, a new audiobook version of the prelude to The Lord of the Rings read by Andy Serkis is coming out in September.

To tease the release of this version of The Hobbit, publisher HarperCollins released a snippet of Serkis’s narration at the very beginning of the book. It’s just about two minutes of the book’s total 7-hour-and-40-minute running time and it sounds great.

Serkis portrayed Gollum in the Peter Jackson-directed The Lord of the Rings trilogy and was second unit director on The Hobbit trilogy so he’s certainly no stranger to Middle Earth. Plus he has a voice that just seems to fit the story very well. Read More

Protests surged nationwide on July 4 in a call for a better America


Independence Day in the United States saw thousands and thousands of protesters eschewing the typical traditions of relaxed grilling and celebration to instead continue the fight against racism and violence against Black people with inspiring marches, speeches, and demonstrations all across the nation.

With the coronavirus pandemic still holding the country in its grasp and many people forgoing large, unsafe gatherings, protesters continued to come together as they have been for more than a month to tell the world that Black lives matter and the racist, abusive, violent police departments all across the U.S. need to be reformed, defunded, and abolished.

Group streaming for all of your favorite services


Robust service selection • Intuitive chat features • Good playback on some services

Personal and web playback is buggy • Browser feature differences • Minor video chat issues

TwoSeven is a versatile group streaming site that occasionally bites off more than it can chew.

The search for the perfect group streaming service for the age of social distancing isn’t over, but TwoSeven is an intriguing pitstop along the way.

Funded by Patreon donations, TwoSeven is a gradually expanding group streaming site with accompanying Chrome and Firefox extensions that let you, theoretically, do quite a bit more than Netflix Party, Scener, or Hulu Watch Party. TwoSeven supports several different streaming services from Netflix to Hulu, and even personal video files, but its execution doesn’t always match its ambition. Read More

Uber’s global reach grows as the company’s ridesharing comes to Tokyo

It took six years, but Uber is finally hitting the road in Tokyo.

The company kicked off rideshare operations in Japan’s capital city on Friday, according to a report from Bloomberg. Thanks to a partnership with three local taxi services, Tokyo riders can summon one of the 600 cars plugged into the app.

Uber may face an uphill battle in building a customer base in the Japanese city. As Bloomberg notes, Tokyo is one of the biggest taxi markets in the world, but the vast majority of those cabs are hailed on the street.  Read More

New Hubble image of ‘fluffy’ galaxy is spectacular


The European Space Agency (ESA) and NASA released a new image Thursday taken using the Hubble Space Telescope and showing a very detailed look at the unique spiral galaxy known as NGC 2775.

The ESA described this galaxy as flocculent, meaning it has a woolly, feathery, or fluffy appearance, which is a very apt description considering the arms spiraling out from its center look like they’re made of dog fur dotted with millions of blue stars.

These furry arms suggest that there hasn’t been much in the way of star formation in this galaxy for a very long time, according to the ESA. The arms are made up of gas clouds that have been spread by the rotation of the galaxy. Read More
