'Doctor Who' Christmas finale: What we just learned about Capaldi's epic farewell

SAN DIEGO — The Doctor is refusing to regenerate into what we know to be his upcoming female form, and Time itself is not happy with him.  That's the premise behind "Twice Upon a Time," the official title for Peter Capaldi's final episode of Doctor Who, revealed in an emotional panel at Comic-Con on Sunday that marked a changing of the guard.

This smartphone could be yours for free

By Team Commerce Mashable Shopping 2017-07-22 13:00:00 UTC If we learned anything from 2016, it’s that two-party systems sometimes end in chaos. The same principle applies to smartphone shopping. Why must we choose between Apple and Samsung as our predominant options, when both have their shortcomings and, for some, deal-breakers? For those fiercely independent smartphone shoppers who refuse to walk the party line, there’s the OnePlus 5. Wi...

Ataribox crowdfunding plan is a giant, flapping red flag

Be concerned, Atari fans. At this point, there's only one fact about Ataribox that matters, and it didn't come from either of the vague press releases issued so far. As Eurogamer discovered in a June investor note, the console will be crowdfunded. "To limit risk taking, this product will initially be launched within the framework of a crowdfunding campaign," the note — translated from French — reads. It may not have been uttered by a PR mou...

A Quentin Tarantino movie about the Manson murders is a disgusting idea

What I'm about to do is gross and wrong — to judge a work of art before it's even been made — but there's something about Quentin Tarantino tackling the Manson family murders that feels ... well, gross and wrong. The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday reported that Tarantino's next project would be a "unique take on the Manson family murders," and that "script details are fuzzy but one of the stories centers on Sharon Tate." Tarantino's sensibil...

This Tom Hardy is not a lie Image: BUCHAN/VARIETY/REX/SHUTTERSTOCK By Adam Rosenberg 2017-04-16 14:59:21 UTC We can safely assume that perfect human Tom Hardy leads a fairly charmed life.
