  • Truly great TV: Tragedy and 'Thrones' Aug 3, 2014 9:56 PM
    The best film Sean has seen this year didn't play in 3,000 theaters, employ big-name movie stars and droves of visual effects artists, or air on a premium cable channel. It's a documentary “Hillsborough” that first aired on ESPN, and it's now available for streaming to Netflix subscribers. It chronicles the April 15, 1989, soccer stadium disaster in Sheffield, England, in which 96 people were crushed to death in an overcrowded, standing-room-only spectators' pen.

  • ‘Orange’ actresses find prison roles ‘liberating’ Jun 6, 2014 5:15 AM
    The women’s federal prison of “Orange is the New Black” is a different world, populated with a wildly varied group of characters played (alongside series star Taylor Schilling) by TV’s most diverse cast of actors.

  • Colbert assails Amazon over delayed book shipments Jun 6, 2014 9:03 AM
    On one side of a major publishing feud is, the industry’s biggest book seller.

Rowling, James Patterson, Malcolm Gladwell and Stephen Colbert. Colbert assailed the online retailer on his Comedy Central program Wednesday night. Amazon is in a contract dispute with Hachette Book Group and has been delaying shipments for some Hachette books, including for Colbert’s “America Again,” and removing the pre-order option for Rowling’s “The Silkworm.”

The 17-year-old owns a profitable consumer electronics review company that employs two and produces YouTube videos watched by hundreds of thousands. "I think as people saw the youth perspective we bring to the table, they started coming to us more and more,” he said.

  • How to save and protect your digital afterlife May 31, 2014 6:35 AM
    The digital afterlife is one of many areas in which law has yet to catch up with technology’s speedy intrusion into our businesses, communications and lives. There’s little consistency in how technology companies handle — or don’t handle — what happens to an account when the user dies, leaving family and friends locked out or unsure what to do. A new proposal would address that, simplifying the process of laying digital ghosts to rest.

  • Netflix’s ‘Derek’ returns handled with tender, loving care May 31, 2014 5:30 AM
    Ricky Gervais’ “Derek,” which returns to Netflix on Friday with six new episodes that recently aired on British television, is a quiet and hopeful little comedy about social behavior, as seen and understood by a man who is ... well, what is Derek? Gervais, who stars as Derek Noakes, carefully avoids providing viewers with a diagnosis for his character, which he first performed in a stand-up comedy routine more than a decade ago. He has said that Derek, who works as an aide in a nursing home, isn’t mentally disabled or intellectually challenged. Perhaps he’s autistic. Not knowing seems to be the entire point: Can’t we just relate to Derek on his own, as he is, beyond a label?

Target, the nation’s No. 2 discounter, is creating exclusive party-planning collections with top Pinterest users, or “pinners.” And Caribou created a coffee blend that was inspired by the coffee chain’s Pinterest fans.
