Streaming Movies And TV On Stan, Easier Than Netflix

A streaming video on demand service can have a massive library of movies and TV online, but just as important is actually guiding you to easily find and watch that video.

As pencils became more ubiquitous in everyday life, it became apparent that a faster and more efficient way was needed to sharpen them. Luckily, two Frenchmen were up to the challenge.

If you hear a tune you would like to identify, here’s how to get Google Now on the case.

Deepak Chopra Has The Worst Avatar Ever On Twitter

A message he decided to share with the world using the only medium that matters anymore — his Twitter avatar.
