  • Suddenly, my life has meaning. Pretty soon, for 99-cents, you'll be able to have Samuel L. Jackson be the voice of your Amazon Echo. Yes, move over, Alexa. And you'll be able to choose between the G-version or the F-version.
  • Ronan Farrow has a book on the way, where women who have a story to tell about Matt Lauer are going to say their piece.
  • Look out Hong Kong. A new weapon invented by Chinese scientists uses low frequency sound waves to cause physical distress, forcing rioters, protesters, or anyone else the wielder wants to vacate the area. The new "sonic gun" was developed as a non-lethal weapon system for use by police and law enforcement as an alternative to lethal weapons.
  • "The Kelly Clarkson Show" opened at a 1.6 live plus same day household rating, according to Nielsen Media Research. That's the best premiere for a new first-run show since Disney's Katie Couric premiered in 2012.
