There was little doubt that The Walking Dead would have a big return this season, but it’s remarkable that it keeps getting bigger and stronger when it returns, unlike a zombie itself, which will continue to rot and grow progressively weaker as time goes in. In fact, the Walking Dead has broken yet another ratings record.
William Shatner has earned the right to say whatever he wants. The man was the original Captain Kirk, and he’s still going strong at 82. Now he wants to kiss and make up with JJ Abrams after allegedly saying some caustic comments about the new model Star Trek.
When Jack Nicholson played the Joker in the 1989 version of Batman, it was an obvious casting choice. He certainly looked the part, and it was the perfect vehicle for him to go wild onscreen. Yet now we’ve learned that Tim Burton had another actor in mind to play the legendary Batman villain, and it would have made a very interesting choice indeed.
A lot of shows aren’t brilliant right out of the gate. It can often take a while before a show settles into a comfortable rhythm. While SHIELD has gotten stellar ratings so far, some critics feel it hasn’t quite hit the mark just yet, and that there’s lots of room for improvement.
Damon Lindelof is the creator of Lost , and he’s also the screenwriter of Prometheus, and Star Trek Into Darkness. And after much deliberation, Lindelof has left the Twittersphere.
I was given a few hours to visit with the Sony folks yesterday to see what is on the horizon for the PlayStation 4. I’ve got to say, I’m pretty impressed.
Microsoft's long gestating Windows 8.1 upgrade is now available for download. Designed to address the concerns of whiners and haters alike, it seems like it is one of those upgrades that is a must have now thing. And, it won't hurt one bit if it takes away the bad taste of Windows 8.
System76 is currently accepting pre-orders for the Darter UltraThin, a 14-inch notebook pre-loaded with Ubuntu 13.10 (64-bit).

Imagine giving a presentation to a roomful of important customers when suddenly the projector fails. You whip out your smartphone, beam your PowerPoint presentation onto the conference room screen, and are back in business within seconds.
Animal populations can have a far more significant impact on carbon storage and exchange in regional ecosystems than is typically recognized by global carbon models, according to a new paper authored by researchers at the Yale School of Forestry & Environmental Studies (F&ES).
There are supermassive black holes -- with masses up to several billion solar masses -- at the hearts of almost all galaxies in the Universe, including our own galaxy, the Milky Way.
Earth’s most eminent emissary to Mars has just proven that those rare Martian visitors that sometimes drop in on Earth — a.k.a. Martian meteorites — really are from the Red Planet. A key new measurement of Mars’ atmosphere by NASA’s Curiosity rover provides the most definitive evidence yet of the origins of Mars meteorites while at the same time providing a way to rule out Martian origins of other meteorites.
Mitsubishi Motors, ahead of the upcoming 2013 Tokyo Motor Show, announced plans to showcase at that event two new plug-in hybrid concepts. The automaker to date has mostly been a footnote in the evolving low carbon transportation market, so it will be interesting to see specifics of what these concepts offer as a clue into future green vehicle development.
Tired of living in an analog house? Wish your home would remind you to turn down the heat or know to only do laundry at night when power its cheaper? There’s a new device on the market that just might make your wish come true.
Look, I like Liam Neeson as much as the next guy so, I will see this just because it is him. But, that doesn't stop me from thinking that geezer action heroes are going to end up setting a very bad example for our seniors.
We know, we know, we hear you loud and clear. We know that many of you, ourselves included, aren’t nuts about Batman Vs Superman. In fact, it’s the current fanboy whipping boy, and it’s still a year and a half away from release.
Lately we’ve been seeing a lot of stories being continued as graphic novels. There was a graphic novel prequel to Pacific Rim before the movie came out, and there’s also a new continuation of Firefly coming in comic form. Now The Six Million Dollar Man is coming back as a graphic novel, and we’re certain there’s tons of fans that will welcome it back with open arms.
We at TGD are amazed at how much love people still have for Ghostbusters. It’s coming up on three decades since the comedy came out in the summer of 1984 and became the hottest thing since sliced bread, and Dan Aykroyd has been trying hard to get a third Ghostbusters off the ground for years.
Many fans loved Pacific Rim, but it still has a long way to go in terms of making its money back. Now you can help fix that problem, and potentially help get a sequel off the ground, by supporting Pacific Rim now that it’s available on DVD, BluRay, and VOD.
Being Madonna means you can do pretty much whatever you want, we got that. But it’s great to see that even the biggest stars in the world have to follow some rules, and the news spread all over the world that Madonna was kicked out of a movie screening at the Alamo Drafthouse for texting.
Analysts at ABI Research say the display found in the Moto X from Motorola Mobility, a Google company, has the best performance observed in a mobile display to date.
A recent study led by researchers of the ICFO (Institute of Photonic Sciences) demonstrates that a single nano-diamond can be operated as an ultrafast single-emitter optical switch operating at room temperature. The scientific results of this study have been published in Nature Physics.
Congress should minimally modify – and not, as petroleum-related interests have increasingly lobbied for, repeal – the Renewable Fuel Standard, the most comprehensive renewable energy policy in the U.S., according to a new paper from two University of Illinois researchers.
What do smoke rings, tornadoes and the Great Red Spot of Jupiter have in common? They are all examples of vortices, regions within a fluid (liquid, gas or plasma) where the flow spins around an imaginary straight or curved axis. Understanding how geophysical (natural world) vortices behave can be critical for tasks such as weather forecasting and environmental pollution monitoring.
Scientists studying the behavior of platinum particles immersed in hydrogen peroxide may have discovered a new way to propel microscopic machines. The new mechanism is described in The Journal of Chemical Physics, which is produced by AIP Publishing.
ESA’s comet-chasing mission Rosetta will wake up in 100 days’ time from deep-space hibernation to reach the destination it has been cruising towards for a decade. Comets are the primitive building blocks of the Solar System and the likely source of much of Earth’s water, perhaps even delivering to Earth the ingredients that helped life evolve.
I love art that plays tricks on my eyes, making me see something that isn’t there but is. The upcycled ‘Rising Moon’installation created for last month’s Mid-Autumn Festival in Hong Kong is just such a piece of art.
There’s no denying it: most of us depend on electronics in every aspect of our lives. Even if you don’t own that many gadgets, electronics fill the hospitals, police departments, schools, and farms that we count on for valuable services. When these vital electronics die or break, they become part of the 50 million tons of e-waste generated every year.
Pre-ordering is the new ordering. And so it goes with Nike's latest version of its activity tracking device which won't be available until November 6, but is ready for order now. How will it fare against the likes of Jawbone, Fitbit, smartwatches, Adidas and Garmin? I get tired thinking about it.
43 year old Chinese entrepreneur, Wang Fuming, has 6 cockroach farms with 10 million cockroaches. Stay with me, people, don't squirm away. Since 2010 the price of dried cockroaches has increased 10-fold. Mr. Fuming will make you feel pathetic for complaining to your local slumlord.
