HBO Confirms Upcoming ‘Game of Thrones’ Spinoffs

Following a myriad of rumors, HBO has confirmed that it is indeed working on multiple Game of Thrones spinoffs. Today the network announced that four writers will be jumpstarting separate projects, including Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull Island), Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Golden Circle), Brian Helgeland (Legend), and Carly Wray (Mad Men, The Leftovers).

Furthermore, Goldman and Wray will in turn be working directly alongside GoT creator George R. R. Martin.

“We’ll take as much or as little time as the writers need and, as with all our development, we will evaluate what we have when the scripts are in,” says a spokesperson for HBO, as you’ll have to stay tuned for a timeline surrounding the Game of Thrones-related spinoffs.

Nonetheless, GoT season seven premieres July 16.

Apple Named World’s Largest Wearables Vendor With an Estimated 3.5M Apple Watch Shipments in Q1 2017

Apple became the world’s largest wearables vendor in the first quarter of 2017 with an estimated 3.5 million Apple Watch shipments, according to new research data shared this afternoon by Strategy Analytics.



Apple Watch shipments overtook Fitbit shipments during Q1 2017, allowing Apple to capture 15.9 percent global marketshare to become the top wearables vendor. Fitbit shipped an estimated 2.9 million wearable devices during the quarter, while Apple’s closest competitor, Xiaomi, shipped an estimated 3.4 million wearable devices.



Apple’s estimated 3.5 million shipments are up from an estimated 2.2 million Apple Watch shipments in the year-ago quarter. As Apple Watch shipments have grown, Fitbit shipments have dropped sharply from an estimated 4.5 million units in Q1 2016.






Xiaomi is still close to Apple at 15.5 percent global marketshare, but has seen its shipment numbers slip while Apple’s have grown.


In the year-ago quarter, Xiaomi’s marketshare was at 20.9 percent, while Apple’s was at 12.1 percent. Fitbit, meanwhile, has dropped from 24.7 percent in Q1 2016 to 13.2 percent in Q1 2017.

Cliff Raskind, Director at Strategy Analytics, said, “Fitbit shipped 2.9 million wearables worldwide in Q1 2017, falling a huge 36 percent annually from 4.5 million in Q1 2016. Fitbit has lost its wearables leadership to Apple, due to slowing demand for its fitnessbands and a late entry to the emerging smartwatch market. Fitbit’s shipments, revenue, pricing and profit are all shrinking at the moment and the company has a major fight on its hands to recover this year.”

Apple does not share official Apple Watch sales numbers, instead lumping the device into its “Other Products” category that also includes the Apple TV, Beats products, iPod, and Apple-branded and third-party accessories, so Apple Watch sales numbers shared by various analytics firms are all estimates.



Revenue from “Other Products” was $2.87 billion during the second quarter of 2017 according to Apple’s recently released earnings report, up from $2.19 in the year-ago quarter. According to Apple CEO Tim Cook, Apple Watch sales have nearly doubled year-over-year.


“Combine Apple Watch, AirPods, and Beats and our revenue from wearable products in the last four quarters was the size of a Fortune 500 company,” said Cook.

Watch Migos, Gucci Mane’s Voyeuristic ‘Slippery’ Video

Migos and Gucci Mane filmed a home video in their Miami-set “Slippery” clip. The track is the latest single from the trio’s Culture album.

Set at a mansion pool party, the clip is told through both home videos and more pristine clips of the trio, Gucci Mane and various friends like Diddy being surrounded by a bevy of scantily clad women on yachts, in Jacuzzis, by cars and in showers. The home video clips were shot at member Quavo’s birthday party.

Migos released Culture in January and have been one of hip-hop’s busiest acts ever since. They have made guest appearances as a trio as well as solo throughout the year, including verses on Calvin Harris’ “Slide” with Frank Ocean, Sean Paul’s “Body” and Katy Perry’s “Bon Appetit.” Quavo has appeared independingly on DJ Khaled’s “I’m the One” alongside Chance the Rapper, Justin Bieber and Lil Wayne as well as Post Malone’s “Congratulations.” This summer, the trio will open for Future on his Nobody Safe tour.
