Pokémon Go’s first substantial update adds tweaks for overpowered Pokemon (those consistently at the top of Pokemon gyms: cough, Vaporean, cough), where the critters can be found, and a raft of bug and text fixes. Niantic has decided to drop t… …read more

The Night Of‘s fourth episode opens with a shot of the charred remains of Naz’s prison bed.

The Democratic National Convention dominated the news this week, and many attendees shared sweet photos capturing the experience on Instagram.
Insta was also a platform for some relationship drama – Rob Kardashian made numerous changes to his account and left us questioning everything about his relationship with fiancée Blac Chyna. Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan asked her followers to respect her privacy during a difficult time.
Of course, some Instagram posts simply made us smile. A blogger expressed her body positive epiphany and Amy Schumer ate cake in an innovative new way. Meanwhile, John Stamos gave us visions of Uncle Jesse circa 1989 and your favorite High School Musical gals rocked out together. …
