Sam Tarly is going to cure greyscale and we don't deserve him

Things have been pretty bleak for a while for Jorah Mormont on Game of Thrones. He lost the faith of his beloved Khaleesi, Daenerys Targaryen, and when things had a shot of turning around, he got greyscale, a terminal Westerosi disease that eats at the flesh and eventually destroys the mind.

He's lucky, then, that he met Samwell Tarly, sworn brother of the Night's Watch, training to be maester at Castle Black. Sam is too loyal, too smart, too fatigued with injustice to let a good man's life...

The most magically mundane moments of Comic-Con

Superheroes: They're just like us.

If you read and watch most coverage of Comic-Con, the world's largest nerdfest, you'll come away with the impression that its world-famous cosplay fanatics are forever posing in states of grunting, flexing, fist-pumping, poster-worthy superheroic brilliance. 

And while it's true that all weekend long, these living legends will commit 100 percent to that pose at the merest hint of a whispered "May I?", there are the other moments. More telling, more human,...

All the big movie trailers from Comic-Con 2017, ranked

If there's one thing you can reliably expect from Comic-Con each year, it's lines. Lots and lots of lines, so many lines, so many people taking to social media to complain about how many lines there are.

But in addition to the lines, there is one other staple at every Comic-Con: trailers. And the studios definitely brought the thunder this year.

Nokia 8 leak reveals strange, new smartphone color

First there was white. Then gold. Then there was rose gold, AKA pink. Then there was shiny black. So what will be the next cool smartphone color?

Nokia seems to be betting on copper.

A ton of images of Nokia's upcoming Nokia 8 leaked out on Baidu, and the phone looks...odd. It's somewhere between gold and copper, and it somehow manages to look both fancy and cheap at the same time. Well, except for that strip of what looks like plastic on top;...

Daimler wants to replace the valet with an autonomous parking garage

The first job threatened by self-driving cars might not be the long-haul trucker, or even your Uber driver. No, the best place to start with autonomy is the parking garage, according to a new concept called “automated valet parking” that was unveiled by Daimler and Bosch today at the Mercedes-Benz Museum in Stuttgart, Germany.

Parking assists have been in high-end cars for a while now, and Tesla in particular has a “summon car” feature. But the Diamler / Bosch collaboration takes...

How to use a password manager (and why you really should)

If for some cruel reason I was forced to rewrite that mid-‘90s viral essay / hit single “Wear Sunscreen,” I would replace the titular advice with a simple plea: use a password manager. Like sunscreen, it can be a hassle to apply, but it’s an easy way to stop yourself from getting burned.

The reasons are simple: you need strong, unique passwords for each of your online accounts, otherwise the chances they’ll get hacked by some unscrupulous character are much higher. If your...

T-Mobile's spam call blocking is coming to MetroPCS

Back in March, T-Mobile introduced Scam ID and Scam Block, two features that help users avoid annoying robocalls, and now it’s bringing the service to MetroPCS. Starting tomorrow, all MetroPCS users will automatically get Scam ID, the feature that displays a “scam likely” tag above the caller ID when a scammer is spotted.

Users will also have access to Scam Block, which keeps those calls from reaching your phone entirely, although you will have to activate that on your own. If you’d...
