If you've gone to YouTube to watch an unofficial upload of a TV episode, or even a single scene from your favourite anime, you've probably seen the weird things uploaders do to stop YouTube from taking down their videos.

When it comes to televisions, bigger isn't always better. Yes, if you have a huge living room then a giant TV is great. However, if your living room is on the smaller side, then you can end up in a situation where you're sitting way too close to that massive screen, even when you're technically sitting on the other side of the room.

Predicting the future is near impossible -- but that doesn‘t stop us all from having a red hot go. Human beings have been predicting the future since the beginning of history and the results range from the hilarious to the downright uncanny.

One thing all future predictions have in common: they‘re rooted in our current understanding of how the world works. It‘s difficult to escape that mindset. We have no idea how technology will evolve, so our ideas are connected to the technology of today.

Ever walked into one of those 'home cinema' showrooms? It's mad fun.

You wander in, sit on those custom leather chairs. Look up at that world class projector and the crisp audio. You imagine yourself kicking back after a long day at work. Ah, this is the life. You sip on a nice cold drink.

Then you look at the price tag and have coronary.

"So how can I do something kinda like this that doesn't cost $AU400,000?"

Uh, good question.

There's no greater boogeyman in our modern society than the serial killer. They're ruthless killers, they're everywhere, and they're after you -- right? Not really. Serial killers are very real, and very dangerous, but the chances of you encountering one are next to nothing.

For decades, photo and video equipment was designed and tested with only white subjects in mind. Lighting darker skin tones takes a different approach than lighting pale ones. Ava Berkofsky, director of photography on HBO's Insecure, tells Mic how her team beautifully lights the show's black actors, and Mic reporter Xavier Harding demonstrates some of the techniques below.

The latest instalment of Netflix's series of New York based superhero stories, The Defenders, was released over the weekend. It brings together Matt Murdoch (Daredevil), Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Danny Rand (Iron Fist) to battle The Hand for the survival of their city.

I'm cool with Peppa Pig. Peppa is a charmingly imperfect pig-child, and Daddy Pig, despite falling into the cliché befuddled father type, makes me giggle. And who can resist George's one-track obsession with Mr Dinosaur? I don't protest much when my four-year-old daughter asks to watch the British preschool cartoon, and the quickest way for me to find a string of episodes is to grab the iPad and type in "Peppa Pig" on YouTube.
