Brilliant 'Succession' theoryWe may have been looking for the next Game of Thrones in the wrong places, because it's already airing on HBO. Succession might lack the epic battles that make the fantasy genre so great, but it does... nail the family politics. From the pilot all the way to the shocking finale of season 2, you won't be able to put it down. And you'll love the characters for the same very reasons you'll hate them, from the authoritarian family head and leader of a massive media corporation Logan Roy (Brian Cox) who can't let go, to his four children all seeking to prove their worthiness to their father, and all the high ranking minions and acolytes that we get to meet in this two-season journey. With season 3 set to launch in 2020, we have a long time to digest what happened and imagine how the show will move...

This ridiculous 3-hour trailerIf there's any streaming service that can legitimately compete with the juggernaut that is Netflix, it's Disney+. Set to launch in just a few weeks, Disney+ will not only be extremely affordable at $7... a month, it will offer subscribers an absolute avalanche of media content.

It's available for both iOS and Android devices, and it immediately calls to mind FaceApp -- the app that launched earlier this year and similarly turned into a viral hit thanks to the way it took a photo of you and did a creepily good job imagining what...

Yet another patent fromStudying Samsung's patent activity is always a good way to get a sense of where its future smartphone technology and innovations might be headed, as the company rushes to put its stamp on all manner... of new designs and advancements before its rivals do. The documentation never points to guaranteed releases, but they do suggest potential avenues that Samsung's product roadmap might take as they reflect new form factors and features that could possibly end up making it into future handset releases. Divining the next direction Samsung will take is a bit of an art and a science. We reported earlier today about speculation that an upcoming Samsung phone (the Fold 2, but maybe not) would have a design breakthrough we've been waiting for -- an under-the-display selfie camera. Meanwhile, a patent...
