Apple is still growing its market share as a vendor of smartphones, but in all other categories, Google rules the roost. Who is doing better, Google or Apple? Depends on how you want to spin it.
Yes, we said it, sexy. The trailer for I, Frankenstein leaves no doubt that this ain't grandma's monster. This guy is ripped, and cut, but not because he is made up of body parts. Nope. He is a babe magnet. And if it feels familiar, yes, it is by the same people who gave us Underworld with Kate Beckinsale in a painted on leather onesie. It's a great time to be alive.
That's right: 2 million people who sit around, we presume, to look at what is going on the web so that the Chinese government can control it. They don't get to delete stuff, apparently, which is great because, that's a lot of deleters out there. No word on what the Chinese stand is on cute pictures of cats.

We at TGD have heard nothing but good things about the movie Gravity, and from what we know so far, it could be the next big science fiction classic. There’s already Oscar talk for Sandra Bullock, but we’d really love to know what astronaut Buzz Aldrin thinks of the film.

It’s been a great year for genre TV, and as a long time horror fan, I’m especially ecstatic to see it making a big return to the small screen. In this regard, not only is the new series Sleepy Hollow a hit, it’s also officially the first hit show of the fall season.
Dell really is pushing hard against the mindset that the PC is dead this week. The industry heavyweight had one of their largest PC launches ever and while tablets were a part of the launch, the devices didn’t eclipse the overall initiative.

Tantalized by images from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope and ground-based data, scientists thought the giant asteroid Vesta deserved a closer look. They got a chance to do that in 2011 and 2012, when NASA's Dawn spacecraft orbited the giant asteroid, and they were able to check earlier conclusions.
Autonomous driving, whether or not you like it, is coming. Not tomorrow, and perhaps not in three years as Tesla Motors hopes. But it will be here, perhaps as early as the end of this decade.
Toyota luxury brand Lexus has unveiled information about its new 2014 ES 300h hybrid luxury sedan, which first debuted just last year. Chief among what’s been announced is news of its EPA fuel economy ratings, which play out at 40 mpg city / 39 mpg highway / 40 mpg combined.
It's code-named "Cinnamon," and it has no release date or intended price however, Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos likes to keep his hardware costs down. In that regard, we can expect him to enter into the fray against Apple TV at $99 and Roku at $50. I'll throw in Chromecast at $35 because, I like it better than the set-top box (STB) stuff.
Over 2.9 million customers have their credit card and data compromised. That's a nice way of saying, stolen. It looks like the breach has far reaching consequences because the attack went through Adobe's Coldfusion and there may be inherent weaknesses in the code. Coldfusion is widely used by many sites as a web application development platform and server.
Chris Pine is on his way to being the biggest star in the Universe. And he gets to play iconic heroes like James Tiberius Kirk, and now, Jack Ryan. Is it fair? Look at him. The man is gorgeous and he runs like a gazelle.

Clancy, who passed away on October 1, was also a force in the world of gaming.
