Stranger Things Season 3’s final trailer discards consumerism, goes big on horror

We've been following along with Netflix's Stranger Things since Season 3 was announced. While previous trailers have proved to be a little... meh, showing more drama and a not insubstantial amount of rampant consumerism (albeit a retro version of it), the newest -- and final -- Stranger Things Season 3 trailer brings the pain. And more than a little horror, to boot. 

Apple’s tvOS is getting multi-user, Xbox One and PS4 controller support

If you blinked last night you might have missed Apple's mention of tvOS, the operating system being used to run the Apple TV. The company doesn't typically place a massive emphasis on the operating system, perhaps because it's not quite as... sexy as iOS and macOS. But Apple's looking to change that, thanks to the new Apple TV features announced in March this year. 

The Defender of the Green is looking mighty angry in the first full Swamp Thing trailer

Samsung’s 8K QLED TVs have come from the future to show us what it looks like, today

Samsung’s smart TVs have been awfully smart for an awfully long time, but now it’s time for something new and different: Samsung’s 8K QLED TVs.

This is the worst timeline: Samsung’s got a vertical TV, called the Sero, on the way

Okay, okay, we're totally having a go at Samsung here. The Korean company has a new TV on the way, called the Sero. It's not quite as apocalyptic as we're making out, either. It's just got one little feature that, honestly, makes it stand out. Or up.

Take a terrifying look at DC Universe’s Swamp Thing in the first series teaser

We might have first seen it around 1 April but upcoming DC series Swamp Thing is no joke. The first teaser video for the swamp monster-featuring show has dropped and it's looking a whole lot like traditional horror fare. Suitably DC-flavoured, so there's grit, grime, and (probably) mothers named Martha everywhere. 

Will Netflix eventually monetize its user data?

Samsung 8K QLED TVs are here, even if there’s nothing to watch on them
