Jam co-founders Dani Grant and M...

Alphabet’s latest moonshot is a field-roving, plant-inspecting robo-buggy

Mineral is the name of the project, and there’s no hidden meaning there. The team just thinks minerals are really important to agriculture. Announced with little fanfare in a blog post and site, Mineral is sti...

‘The Gentlemen’: Guy Ritchie is Turning His Gangster Movie into a TV Series for Miramax TV

Remember when Guy Ritchie made his long-awaited return to the gangster flick with The Gentlemen earlier this year? Yes, that was this year, back in January 2020. And in the decade that passed in the 9 months since The Gentlemen came out, it has earned enough of a following for Miramax TV to commission a TV series adaptation, written and directed by Ritchie himself.
