‘Venom 2’ Gets a Second Villain With Shriek, Carnage’s Longtime Love Interest

You can’t wreak carnage without a little Shriek. Quite literally in the case of the Venom sequel, which has just added a second villain to join Woody Harrelson‘s bewigged Carnage. The end credits of Sony’s surprise 2018 hit Venom heavily pointed to Carnage as the main Venom 2 villain, but reports have emerged that Carnage will be joined by his frequent comic book partner in crime (and in love), Shriek. Deadline reports that Shriek will be joining Carnage as one of the villains in the Venom s...

‘Venom’ Director Ruben Fleischer Anticipates a Confrontation with Tom Holland as Spider-Man

Venom may have been flogged by critics to the tune of 29% on Rotten Tomatoes, but it landed perfectly fine with audiences, landing a score of 80% from users on the review aggregation site and raking in over $856 million at the worldwide box office. As expected, Sony Pictures is moving forward with a sequel, and if the original film’s director Ruben Fleischer is to be believed, they’re on their way to a crossover with Venom meeting Spider-Man from the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Speaking to Fan...

Using a Tolino in the US

Based on a recent conversation with rcentros in a thread in the Kobo forum I now have a used Tolino Shine 2 on the way to me from a US eBay seller. Rcentros reports that the Tolino can get Overdrive library books in the same way Sony readers used to before Overdrive changes rendered them obsolete. Hopefully that won't happen to Tolino anytime soon but this was a cheap purchase so not a big issue if it doesn't last. I'm curious whether the Tolino has the ability to obtain books directly from b...

Clarifying the Kobo Clara/Aura options

I've been using a Sony T2 for years, but am looking for a new toy with front lighting. I'm open to a Kindle Paperwhite 4, but I think I'd prefer the ability to color shift the front lighting. I've been poking around the Kobo options, and am having trouble deciding betweeen the Clara HD, the Aura, and the special Walmart edition Aura (cheapest option). Can anyone help me clarify what the differences are between the Clara HD and the Aura, other than a few dpi? And what's different about the Wa...

Calibre 3.48 for Windows 7 users

You might have to create a "why can't I use the viewer in Calibre 4.x in Windows 7" sticky. :D Is there any chance (and I suspect I know the answer) that the 3.48 version could at least be updated to include the latest Kobo firmware? I finally bought a Kobo, thinking I'd be able to get back to using the collections I lost since I gave up on Sony and switched to a Kindle. But - at least for now - the Libra isn't recognized by Calibre. I'm hanging onto my Windows 7 laptop for a bit longer bef...

Export annotations with context from PRS-T1?

I've seen that using both the Reader desktop app, and the calibre plugins, you can export all of the annotations from an epub from a Sony PSR-T1 reader. The problem is, I'm proofreading a manuscript for someone else, and I'd like to be able to give them the list of annotations and have them find what it's referring to. If I highlight one word and write a note, then the exported annotations list just contains that one word, which might occur multiple times on the page, and is hard for the reader...

Open Mike: RTFM

["Open Mike" is the not always off-topic Editorial page of TOP. It appears on Wednesdays, except when Mike is a day late and a dollar short again.] - It stands for—of course you know this—"Read The [expletive deleted] Manual." Once upon a time, one of my standard pieces of advice for new camera buyers was that they spend a solid hour or two (!) familiarizing themselves with their new camera. (That amount of time dates this advice. Now I would have to say a day or two, or a week.) I had a litan...
