Cookie Lyon, meet your newest nemesis: Thurston “Thirsty” Rawlings
Played by The Wire vet Andre Royo, Rawlings is a fast-talking lawyer who schmoozes his way into Lucious’ defense team. He’s slick, always in a colorful suit and is absolutely, unequivocally not to be messed with. Though he says he’s not afraid to play dirty at the start of this episode, he really proves it by the end. Highly connected, manipulative and violent, he’s a dream come true for Lucious, but a nightmare for anyone who crosses him
The episode started off a bit slowly, with Cookie, Andre and Hakeem strolling out of Empire with a box full of belongings. It’s time for the trio to regroup and figure out how to be competitive with Jamal and Co …
The Watch Urbane doesn’t ditch its Urbane genes and that’s too bad because the Urbane is a terrible smartwatch that’s incredibly uncomfortable to wear.
Instead of putting the new Watch Urbane on a diet, LG’s actually gone and made the screen larger. The new smartwatch has a round 1.33-inch P-OLED display with a higher 480 x 480 resolution compared to the original Urbane’s 1.3-inch 320 x 320 resolution. …

This time the video was inspired by a picture submitted to Reddit, a Jell-O advertisement claiming that their product will essentially be cut into rectangles if hit with a tennis racket. Although the advertisement is a bit exaggerated, this is essentially what happens
Proving yet again that technology is not foolproof, a man drove onto a train track in Melbourne, Australia after following GPS directions.
After driving onto the tracks on Wednesday night, the driver tried to reverse his car out of the predicament, Victoria Police said in a statement. The car ended up becoming stuck on the tracks, in the path of an oncoming train
The man escaped uninjured, abandoning his car before the train hit. While the car ended up being pushed about 15 metres before coming to a standstill. The 13 passengers aboard the train were also unhurt. …
The LG V10 is not your typical Android smartphone. I think it’s fair to call LG’s V10 the world’s first ultra phone.
How so? Let’s start with its two screens. In addition to the 5.7-inch QuadHD display, there’s a smaller secondary screen that’s physically connected to it, but operates as a completely separate display that’s always on 24/7. The second screen can display notifications, app shortcuts and settings. In certain apps, the second screen can also show additional menu settings without hogging up space on the main screen.
Or that the V10 has two front-facing 5-megapixel cameras for ultra-wide selfies (and no 3D depth-sensing gimmicks)? Or that it has an aluminum frame made from stainless steel and back made from Dura Skin, a silicone-like material that can absorb shock like no other device when the phone’s dropped? …
No, you’re not looking at an artist’s watercolor impression of the Moon. That’s NASA’s false-color map of Ceres, generated using a mix of infrared and visible light filters onboard the Dawn spacecraft currently orbiting the dwarf planet. The resu… …read more
Scores of U.S. Secret Service employees improperly accessed the decade-old, unsuccessful job application of a congressman who was investigating scandals inside the agency, a new government report said Wednesday. An assistant director suggested leaking embarrassing information to retaliate against Rep. Jason Chaffetz, R-Utah, chairman of the House oversight committee.
The actions by the employees could represent criminal violations under the U.S. Privacy Act, said the report by the Homeland Security Department’s inspector general, John Roth. “It doesn’t take a lawyer explaining the nuances of the Privacy Act to know that the conduct that occurred here — by dozens of agents in every part of the agency — was wrong,” the report said. …
