I’m really not a fan of just copying someone else’s products. Yes Samsung has proven it can work but in the end it is still just a copy and it is far better to carve out your own space.

There’s a lot of great horror, sci-fi and fantasy on TV these days, but how about a genre show with some Latin flavor? In fact, Latin horror’s been a big thing this year with the success of the movie Mama, and a Latin Paranormal Activity movie will also be coming soon.

No matter what the critics think about the next Hunger Games movie, Catching Fire, it’s going to be an enormous success no matter what. Still, we’re definitely curious if the next installment is any better or worse than the original, especially considering original screenwriter / director Gary Ross (Big, Seabiscuit) didn’t come back for another go round. (He was replaced by I Am Legend director Francis Lawrence.)

Some $12 million in funding that was put up for grabs last December in a competitive process is now pegged to go to eight teams around the country to pursue policy and permitting-process innovations.
The idea of American hybrid minivans is pretty much a dream. Chrysler a few years back built a small test fleet of Town & Country hybrid minivans, but that never evolved into a mass production offering. Though Japan has one in the form of the Toyota Estima, notes the Chicago Tribune, it doesn’t look like that’s being brought here either.
Google just gave you some new features in Gmail that add a level of functionality to email that makes it more than email. It's like they don't want you to go anywhere else but Google. Aw. Google likes me. It really, really likes me.

There’s speculation all over the net about so many movies. Other than Star Wars, there probably hasn’t been a movie where more rumors have been flying all over than Ghostbusters 3.

The accountants at Google must be sweating in their boots after Brazilian judges ordered them to hand over private data collected through its Street View program.
There’s a funny term that’s been making us laugh here at TGD, “Robo-Phobic” It’s a line that’s being used in the remake of RoboCop, which is coming on February 12, 2014. We saw the first trailer for RoboCop some time back, and it didn’t look bad, but we’ll always be partial to the original, which is one of the greatest sci-fi films in history.
While it got pretty good reviews, Ender’s Game didn’t open to the big box office many had hoped for, and it looks like the saga will pretty much end here. Or will it?

That announcement by MidAmerican Energy last spring that it intended to add 1,050 more megawatts of installed wind power capacity in Iowa – the state with more wind power per capita than any other, already – wasn’t mere talk.
