But is it really real?
'A Deadly Adoption' might have started out as an April Fool's Day joke, but ended up becoming real (maybe), as attested to by new promotional poster announcing the film starring Kristin Wiig and Will Ferrell.

This three-minute tease actually told us quite a bit.
The day many gamers have waited for arrived today with the official announcement of 'Fallout 4,' including a new teaser trailer that offered insight into the latest title. Here's what we learned from that video.

If you could choose any character from classic Doctor Who to make a return on the new series, who would it be and why?

As someone who flies several times a year, it concerns me that airlines don't seem concerned about their onboard computer systems' security.
This morning, United Airlines grounded all U.S. flights for around an hour due to something involved with "dispatch information." Passengers onboard, though, tweeted that they heard rumors about the planes' systems being potentially hacked.

I believe they are. I've heard a few pilots' responses to the recent hacking claims and it seems like they're overblown to an extent. http://www.airlineratings.com/news/498/electronic-claims-debunked-

I'm skeptical that someone actually hacked into the plane. Certainly is possible but it may also be possible that it's a false alarm.

I think we need statistics on who decides on these awards next.
Author Nicola Griffith recently did the math and studied statistics on winners of book awards and found that in categories other than young adult fiction, awards were mostly given to books featuring male lead characters.

About time. 
Here's some bad news for Internet trolls and harassers: your days are numbered, thanks to a new bill that increases the enforcement of laws against online harassment, threats and cyber-stalking.

Beat the heat, by staying inside and video gaming this summer!
If your idea of summer doesn't include going outside and dealing with the heat and bugs, perhaps you'd rather stay inside and play video games instead. We're here to help: check out our summer gaming guide.

Well, I guess that's something.
Although we may never get a solo Black Widow film, Marvel is giving us a solo Black Widow story, in the form of a new young adult fiction novel about Natasha Romanoff and her back story.

Best news of the day! EEEEEE!!!
The wait is almost over, at least for fans of Bethesda Softworks' 'Fallout' video game franchise: expect an announcement from the company tomorrow about the latest title in that series: 'Fallout 4.'

These five shows should keep you busy this summer.
While fans of 'The X-Files' patiently await the return of the series, they have options to watch shows similar to that series, with full seasons now available for online streaming.
