It’s Back to The Future for Amazon Prime

Given these monstrously gigantic figures, it doesn’t take a financial strategist to understand why Disney would want to make Frozen into a full franchise. And that...

This review will contain mild spoilers for Joker. The Joker is one of the most famous villains of all time, both in comic circles and entertainment as a whole.

Review: Bose Frames

Since the dawn of wearable technology, we have seen a variety of smart wearable devices but none of them have been extraordinary.

With the Bose Frames, that’s set to change. These new wearables from Bose are bluetooth- enabled sunglasses with speakers and a mic integrated in them, allowing you...
