Film adaptations are a tricky business — make too many changes and you’re guaranteed to upset existing fans (see Watchmen).

Yesterday, Western Digital unveiled its first My Cloud storage solution for Australian consumers. The WD My Cloud is a personal cloud drive that allows users to remotely access and backup content across all of their devices. It’s essentially a cross between a traditional NAS and a cloud storage service like Dropbox or Google Drive with all data stored on your own private device. It offers virtually unlimited storage potential (via USB 3.0) with no monthly fees to worry about.

We all have that one friend who is ridiculously prickly when it comes to movie spoilers. You know the type we’re talking about — the moment anyone brings up a movie they haven’t seen, they fly into an indignant, teeth-gnashing rage. Even if the “spoiler” is insignificant to the plot, they’ll still relentlessly guilt-trip you and try to make you feel like a thoughtless monster. We think this behavior needs to be stamped out. With extreme prejudice.
Hi Lifehacker, I am part of a group which watches different movies every week, and discusses them afterwards. We have a dedicated schedule, and we filter our movies based on their genre, director or the country of origin, At the start, our group was relatively small (eight or nine people), but now we are getting bigger. We are still watching movies on a big screen TV. We do not have any membership fee or anything like that and there is not money involved.
