There has been an awakening — have you felt it?

No, we're not talking about Rey's burgeoning Force powers; we mean the chemistry between Resistance fighter Poe Dameron (Oscar Isaac) and rebel Stormtrooper Finn (John Boyega) — aka the pairing that the internet has affectionately dubbed "StormPilot." 

The ship that launched a thousand memes has been the talk of the interwebs since The Force Awakens, and Oscar Isaac recently stoked the fires by admitting that he's "very open to those possible storylines" that might see Poe in a same-sex relationship. But will we actually see any evidence of attraction on screen?  Read more...

Former Facebook exec says network is 'destroying how society works'

"You don't get to 500 million friends without making a few enemies." 

That was the tagline for The Social Network, the film about creating Facebook, and it's only become more relevant as the social network has grown to more than 2 billion people. Those "few enemies" are former Facebook executives, people who helped build the tech giant.

He was referring to the iconic "like" button and other reactions we have while browsing News Feed.  Read more...
