But that’s exactly what a Best Buy rep said 15 years ago, on Nov. 22, 2005, as Microsoft launched […]

It's been 10 years since 'Deathly Hallows – Part 1,' the best Harry Potter movie ever
November 22, 2020 0
When the Harry Potter books were adapted for film, we had no idea what to expect. Books had been made into movies before, but never a series on this scale.

November 21, 2020 0
In the early ’90s, Sega had bold plans for a virtual reality headset peripheral for its Genesis console. Those plans never came to fruition, and Sega’s foray into VR and the games that were developed for it never saw the light of day. Until now. Nuclear Rush, a game developed for Sega VR, has been […]

Douglas, the latest step toward realistic AI, is unsettling
November 21, 2020 0

Douglas is being developed by Digital Domain, a visual effects titan that has worked on movies […]
