Marvel’s ‘Inhumans’ storm Comic-Con with tons of action-packed footage

TwitterFacebook

Marvel’s Inhumans are ready for action.

ABC’s new superhero show has been touted as the first television series to debut in IMAX before hitting the broadcast airwaves. Which, in turn, raises the question: is this really worth the IMAX treatment? 

We’ll have to wait a few more weeks for a definitive answer to that one (Inhumans hits IMAX Sep. 1). But in the meantime, ABC’s trying like hell to convince potential fans that it is. 

To that end, they treated the Comic-Con audience to four lengthy clips, three of which featured very different types of action. Read more…

The Gateau Mignon Kit Kat took Japanese pastry chef Yasumasa Takagi over a year to develop. Takagi used a lengthy process of trial and error to create a fondant cake with just the right texture to balance the sweetness of the bar’s other ingredients, according to SoraNews24Read more…

Whatsapp users in China report issues sending pictures and video, fearing censorship

TwitterFacebook

Chinese Whatsapp users are fearing that the app is being blocked in the country.

On Tuesday, users found they weren’t able to send pictures or videos across. It only worked when they used a VPN server instead, possibly indicating that the issue wasn’t with Whatsapp, but with the government’s notorious firewall.

If true, the high-profile messaging app would be the latest casualty in China’s latest efforts to police online content.

Users took to Twitter to confirm the peculiar outage:

Has #China blocked #whatsapp, or is it just a glitch? Can only access thru vpn since yesterday

Ed Sheeran deletes his Twitter within 24 hours of that ‘Game of Thrones’ cameo

TwitterFacebook

Singer-turned-actor Ed Sheeran had assured us earlier this month that he was just reading a lot of Harry Potter and taking a break from the Twitter hate, not quitting the platform completely as reported. 

But on Monday afternoon — less than a full day after he appeared in the highly anticipated Game of Thrones season premiere — his Twitter account @edsheeran was deleted. Gone. Poof. Apparently opting for some Hogwarts counter-programming wasn’t enough as we’re now at the “Sorry, that page doesn’t exist” level of seriousness.

Sheeran’s been an active Twitter user for years and has had the occasional break, but the timing here is a bit suspicious.  Read more…

Olloclip Filmer’s Kit is your go-to bag o’ live-streaming tricks

TwitterFacebook

Good smartphone photography and video requires a steady hand, a good eye and, just maybe, a bag of tricks.

That’s more or less the concept behind Olloclip’s and Incase’s limited-time mashup: The Filmer’s Kit. 

It’s a black, compression-molded, 9-inch-by-6-inch-by-3-inch case packed with the majority of Olloclip’s iPhone 7 add-on lenses (the Core Lens Set and Active Lens Set) and Pivot, a nifty, articulating hand-held mobile phone grip with a universal clamp that accommodates most smartphone sizes. There’s also a cold-shoe mount on the Pivot for a microphone and light source and an adapter so you can use Pivot with your favorite GoPro style camera. Read more…

A ‘Star Wars’ resort is coming to Orlando because Disney doesn’t have enough of our money already

TwitterFacebook

No, you can’t actually visit that galaxy far, far away, on account of it being fictional and all. But Disney being Disney, they’ve cooked up the next best thing.

At D23 today, Bob Chapek, chairman of Disney Parks and Resorts, announced a “100% immersive” Star Wars-themed resort to come to Walt Disney World.

Plans for the resort were first reported in April, but today’s D23 panel brought our first official announcement.

Described as Disney’s “most experiential concept ever,” the luxury hotel promises to be a “100% immersive” experience in “an authentic Star Wars environment.”  Read more…

Trump hires a man with the most magnificent mustache to defend him against Russia accusations

TwitterFacebook

I dare say, I won’t stand for all of you besmirching my client, Mr. Trump.

To get to him, you’ll have to get through me and my magnificent mustache. My name is Ty Cobb and winning runs in my veins. I’m a high-powered lawyer who represented people in the Clinton administration, and I’m a distant relative of The Georgia Peach himself, Ty Cobb, the baseball player. 

It’s unconscionable that you would accuse my client, Donald J. Trump, and his associates of inappropriate contact with the Russians just because of evidence. Why, I’d challenge you to a duel, but I’m enjoying a tasty mint julep on a riverboat. Read more…

We’re frankly baffled that luxury smartphone maker Vertu is done for

TwitterFacebook

Incredibly rich people lacking any sense of style let out a collective gasp today, as news broke that luxury smartphone maker Vertu will be liquidated. 

Despite having a target market of moneyed assholes, of which the world is in no short supply, the UK-based company apparently struggled to find a customer base for its $46,600 polished 18-carat red gold phones.

We’re just as shocked as you are. 

And what brought this visionary company down? According to the BBC, that would be an accounting deficit of £128 million (aka the cost of roughly 3,555 Clous de Paris Red Gold Vertu smartphones).  Read more…

Little girl’s reaction to the ‘Frozen’ ride is hilariously cute

TwitterFacebook

Disney World is supposed to be the most magical place on Earth. For one little girl, all that magic may have been too much to handle.

Imgur user Stingerj uploaded this album of his family riding Frozen Ever After at Epcot at Walt Disney World Resort for the first time.

The camera at the end of the ride captured his daughter’s befuddled expression in all its glory.

Maybe she was just shocked that cartoon characters were dancing and singing in real life. Even in the movie Anna freaks out at first when Olaf comes to life. Read more…
