Telegram is the latest app to join the many messengers that have mimicked Snapchat's disappearing message feature.

On Sunday, Telegram started offering disappearing photos and videos in one-to-one chats.

The messaging app built its name by being one of the first to offer end-to-end encryption. Till now, it also had a "secret chat" function, offering self-destructing messages in chats designated to be private.

Secret chats on Telegram are different from regular messages, in that the latter can be synced across devices and between desktops and mobiles. Secret chats, on the other hand, are only hosted on the sender and receiving devices, and don't remain on Telegram's cloud. Read more...

It took seven seasons but it finally happened: a sweet, consensual sex scene on Game of Thrones.

The second episode of Season 7, "Stormborn," took a quick break from war plotting to give the audience the long-awaited consummation (pun unintended, how dare you) of Grey Worm and Missandei's flirting. That's right, the two most loyal members of Dany's Queensgaurd finally got together!

Game of Thrones is a show infamous for its gratuitous sex scenes, rampant sexual assault, and countless scenes of female nudity. But for once, this scene felt not only earned, but empowering. These two characters have been gazing longingly at each other for years, but their duty to their queen always came first. (Not to mention Grey Worm's insecurities about his body as a eunuch.)

Game of Thrones is teasing some major meetings and reunions, and "Stormborn" saw one we'd long since given up on: Arya and her direwolf Nymeria. 

A pack of wolves closes in on Arya in the forest, led by a massive, ferocious leader who Arya immediately recognizes as her former pet. She entreats Nymeria to come with her on her journey home to Winterfell, but the wolf declines by retreating into the trees and sparing Arya's life.

After a moment of dejection, Arya cracks a smile at her former pet. Domestic life isn't for Nymeria.  Read more...

This post contains spoilers for Game of Thrones Season 7, episode 2, "Stormborn."

Jon Snow and Daenerys Targaryen are finally meeting in next week's Game of Thrones, and we have the trailer to prove it.

In the promo for episode 3, "The Queen's Justice," Jon Snow and Davos Seaworth finally make it to Dragonstone, but will Dany and her long-lost secret nephew get along? The fate of the world may depend on it. 

Elsewhere, you can see a triumphant Euron Greyjoy parading through the streets of King's Landing following his crushing victory over his niece and nephew in episode 2. Now, he has Yara and Ellaria in his clutches, with two out of three Sand Snakes dead, and we know that Cersei is itching to pay Ellaria back for the murder of her daughter, Myrcella, last season.  Read more...

Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson says a lot of things on social media, including the occasional dad joke, but unless he's pranking us this time, we're about to see him star in a film with none other than Apple's digital assistant, Siri. 

"I partnered with #Apple to make the biggest, coolest, craziest, dopest, most over the top, funnest (is that even a word?) movie ever," wrote Johnson on his official Facebook page. "And I have the greatest co-star of all time - #SIRI." 

It's unclear what the nature of the film is, but since it's unlikely that a full-length feature from one of Hollywood's biggest stars would just get dropped on us with one day's notice, it's more likely a promotion of some sort to show off some of Siri's features. And since Apple has also been touting the iPhone as a filmmaking tool, it's likely the "film" will be shot on an iPhone.  Read more...

Believe it or not but Nicki Minaj has something in common with the resident old in your life.

The queen of rap proved that she's still relatable in the most unexpected way when she publicly navigated her way around Snapchat on Sunday afternoon, and ended up asking fans for their tech help. 

The rapper posted a screenshot of her username on Instagram encouraging fans to follow her on the social media platform. "Yo can y'all teach me how to use this?," she wrote. "Wtf I wanna show y'all how a bad btch posts her first snap but..." Minaj wrote, clearly struggling on the app.  Read more...

There are shows, like Buffy The Vampire Slayer, or Battlestar Galactica, or more recently Game Of Thrones, that went a long way toward erasing the stigma of what is commonly known as “genre TV.” They demonstrated that the supernatural, or space opera, or fantasy are no impediment to creating storytelling as sophisticated and smart as any ostensibly highbrow entertainment like Mad Men or Rectify. And then there are shows like Midnight, Texas, which seem hell-bent on reestablishing genre TV as the realm of juvenile silliness, an assemblage of simplistic storytelling and wafer-thin characters that have more in common with the lowbrow aims of a Disney Channel sitcom than even the efficient narratives of a Law & Order episode. No amount of sex and violence can disguise the fact that this is reductive dramatics, aimed at the bottom of the audience’s intelligence, and the show lacks the self-awareness to realize ...
