Just over six months after Daredevil’s second season premiered on Netflix, Marvel returns to the streaming service with a new show: Luke Cage.
When we last saw Luke, he was recovering from a serious case of Kilgrave’s mind control in Jessica Jones. Mike Colter (Luke Cage) has said in interviews that we’ll “still feel the residue of Kilgrave” going into the first season of his show.
But you might want to forget about the rest of the Marvel-Netflix universe going into the latest show, because despite the fact that night nurse Claire Temple is set to have her most substantial role since the first season of Daredevil, many of the characters and storylines of Luke Cage will be completely fresh.
You can see many of those characters below, in the show’s final trailer:
“A hoodie-wearing, unbreakable ex-con fights to clear his name and save his neighborhood,” reads the official description for the show on Netflix. “He wasn’t looking for a fight, but the people need a hero.”
All 13 episodes of Luke Cage season 1 will be available to stream on September 30th. Iron Fist and The Defenders are set to follow in 2017. Continue reading

October 4 is going to be a big day for both Google and tech enthusiasts. Not only are we expecting Google to show off its first Pixel phones, the Pixel and Pixel XL, we won’t be shocked if they unveil pricing and availability for Google Home, and introduce Google WiFi routers and a new Chromecast.

Apple has big plans for the Apple Watch and the tiny sensors embedded within. We’ve known that ever since a team of doctors took center stage to introduce Apple Watch software, but a new report sheds a little more detail on what Apple’s plans look like.
According to a report in Bloomberg (although not from famous Apple sage Mark Gurman), Apple is working on at least two standalone apps for the Apple Watch, with the aim being to turn the Watch and associated HealthKit platform “into a tool that improves diagnoses.” It’s a long way from facilitating Candy Crush, that’s for sure.
The report cites “people familiar with the [HealthKit] team’s plans,” and explains the details of two apps that are in the works. One is to track sleep patterns, which would be cool, if you didn’t have to take the watch off every night to recharge.
The other is meant to gauge users’ overall fitness levels by calculating how long your heart rate takes to go from peak to resting level. If you combine that data with information about users’ sex, height, and weight, you get a very accurate picture of their recovery rate. That, in turn, is a good surrogate for overall health and fitness.
Measuring recovery is something that professional athletes and trainers have been doing for a while now, but putting those kinds of smarts into a device that every person is meant to wear on their wrist every day is something else.
The broader scope of Apple’s plans, at least according to Bloomberg, is to insert its software and hardware into the hospital system. That’s likely to be a longer-term ambition, but as everyone stops buying ‘boring’ iPhones, Apple is hoping that the reveneue from the healthcare can keep sustaining its giant piles of cash.
Anker is celebrating its 5th anniversary of manufacturing accessories by offering up to 30% on select accessories and 20% on others. Continue reading
Next Tuesday, Google is going to hold a massive launch event in San Francisco, where it is expected to debut two Android smartphones (Pixel and Pixel XL), the AI-powered Google Home personal assistant, the Google Wifi router, a Daydream VR headset and a 4K-capable streaming media player called the Chromecast Ultra.
An Android Police report from this month claims that the Chromecast Ultra will retail for $69 — double that of the regular Chromecast’s $35 price tag. Sources referenced in the same report say that HDR will also be on the list of features for the new streaming dongle, but most of the details remain shrouded in mystery.
So now that you know how much it’s going to cost and a little about what it can do, you probably want to see what the Chromecast Ultra actually looks like. Lucky for you (and the rest of us), Evan Blass of VentureBeat has gotten his hands on a very official looking image of the Ultra HD streaming device:
Although we have no proof that the image is legitimate, Blass has a very good track record with these kinds of leaks. Don’t be surprised if you see the exact image above floating around the internet next week when Google sends out press kits with photos of all of its latest hardware. Continue reading
BlackBerry’s CEO John Chen was tasked with a pretty tough job when he took the reigns of BlackBerry in 2013. The Canadian smartphone maker had been losing market share left and right, and Chen’s job was to turn that all around. Chen started by cutting costs in a lot of areas, and even cutting down […]
