As Laemmle Theatres mulls sale, is the indie film marketplace coming back from 2019’s box-office dip?

It’s been looking dire for people who like to watch something different in movie theaters. For most of the year, and especially the summer just past, what are called specialty films – independently produced, foreign language and carefully distributed movies that more-or-less cover intelligent, adult themes in realistic ways – just couldn’t seem to get a break. Overhyped (and priced) titles such as “Booksmart” and “Late Night” disappointed big at the box office. Even some touted “successes” like ...

Google teases fully wireless Pixel Buds, arriving Spring 2020

As rumored, Google just dropped a little hint about its next generation Pixel Buds. The company unveiled a pair of fully wireless earbuds following the release of its promising, but fairly disappointing tethered earbuds. The new headphones are certainly nice looking, maintaining the same pastel color scheme it offers on its Pixel handsets. The headphones are still a long ways out, arriving in spring of next year.

Google's all-new PixelBuds launch next Spring for $179

Google announced this morning that they are updating their Pixel Buds to a true wireless format, though you'll have to wait until next spring when they'll launch for $179. Describing them as "floating computers," Google's true wireless product has no ear hook or wrap-around design, and they don't stick out like AirPods.

26 of the most epic product fails in American history

Launching a new product is no easy feat — even major companies have unexpected flops. Less than 3% of new consumer packaged goods exceed first-year sales of $50 million, according to Joan Schneider and Julie Hall, coauthors of "The New Launch Plan."  Microsoft's Zune failed to compete with the iPod, Cosmopolitan magazine couldn't break into the yogurt business, and McDonald's couldn't sell a burger intended for more sophisticated palates.

With $15M round and 100K tablets sold, reMarkable CEO wants to make tech ‘more human’

The reMarkable tablet is a strange device in this era of ultra-smart gadgets: A black and white screen meant for reading, writing, and sketching — and nothing more. Yet the company has sold 100,000 of the devices and now has attracted $15 million in series A funding from Spark Capital. It’s an unusual trajectory for a hardware startup exploring a nearly unoccupied market, but CEO Magnus Wanberg is confident that’s because this category of device is destined to grow in response to increasingly in...

Sony’s next console is…the PlayStation 5, arriving holidays 2020

Part of me wishes Sony had gone for something a little flashier. The PlayStation Unicorn or PlayStation Trebuchet or something. But there’s something to be said for consistency. Simplicity. The gaming console will be, drumroll…the PlayStation 5. The company notes that nothing is particularly revelatory in this morning’s reveal. That information, it seems, is still coming. And there’s still plenty of time and lots of gaming-centric shows in which the company can spill more about the system. ...

Millennials' obsession with nostalgia is fueling the rise of vintage video games, and experts say we're only going to see more revivals in the future

There's been a resurgence of interest in vintage video games in the last few years, from remakes of retro consoles to reboots of popular franchises from the 1990s. Experts say interest in older video games isn't going away anytime soon, and we can probably expect to see more revivals in the future.

It's Just So Universal

Bose previews voice controlled on-ear headphones and a pair of wireless earbuds

Bose just announced a trio of new headphones today. The company used the opportunity to primarily focus on the dryly named Noise Cancelling Headphones 700, which purport to sport “the biggest leap forward in headphones since the iconic QuietComfort.” A big claim, to be sure, especially given how much that line has come to define the category. The new headphones apparently use the QuietComfort line as a sort of stepping stone, adding in voice control through Google Assistant and Alexa (plus Siri ...
