Samsung knew a third replacement Note 7 caught fire on Tuesday and said nothing

Another replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has caught fire, bringing the total to three this week alone. This one was owned by Michael Klering of Nicholasville, Kentucky. He told WKYT that he woke up at 4AM to find his bedroom filled with smoke and his phone on fire. Later in the day, he went to the hospital with acute bronchitis caused by smoke inhalation.

“The phone is supposed to be the replacement, so you would have thought it would be safe,” Klering told WKYT, saying that he had owned the replacement phone for a little more than a week. “It wasn’t plugged in. It wasn’t anything, it was just sitting there.”

The most disturbing part of this is that Klering’s phone caught fire on Tuesday and Samsung knew about it and didn’t say…

Watch Marvel's Iron Fist Punch Everyone in Sight in Teaser for Netflix Series

Marvel and Netflix are teaming up once again for another series featuring one of the comic publisher’s ground-level heroes: Iron Fist.

You can check out the teaser for yourself below.

Finn Jones (Game of Thrones) plays the titular character, also known as Danny Rand, who is a martial arts master with a few superhuman abilities. He channels mystical powers to make his strikes more powerful than any human is capable of.

Back at San Diego Comic-Con, the first teaser was revealed, giving fans a bit of insight to the tone for the upcoming show. This second teaser doesn’t hold back any punches, pun intended.

Marvel’s Iron Fist will be coming to Netflix on March 17.

Another replacement Galaxy Note 7 has reportedly caught fire

Another replacement Samsung Galaxy Note 7 has reportedly caught fire in Minnesota. The news comes just days after a replacement Note 7 caught fire on a Southwest flight in Kentucky (seen in the picture above), and all four major US cell carriers told customers they could exchange all Note 7 phones, replacement or not.

The Minnesota case involves 13-year old Abby Zuis, who said she felt a “weird, burning sensation” while holding her Note 7 on Friday according to a report from KSTP. After the incident, the phone had burn marks similar to those seen on other Note 7 devices and it melted a cover that was on the phone.

KSTP news reported that the US Consumer Product Safety Commission was investigating the incident as well. The CPSC said it…

The creative team behind Harley Quinn on letting an icon grow

Harley Quinn might be unstoppable. Even though she started off as a throwaway henchwoman in Batman: The Animated Series, she’s since exploded in popularity to become one of the most recognizable characters in all of comics. She’s certainly not on the same level Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman, but she’s getting there. In her world, she’s so much more than the Joker’s ex-girlfriend. Right now, she’s a core member of the Suicide Squad, and headlines two series of her own. And in Hollywood, she’s easily one of the best parts of one of this summer’s top-grossing movies, with a movie of her own on the way.

Harley has long been a zany, over-the-top character with surprising depth, but she’s in a league of her own thanks to Amanda Conner and…

John Wick 2 Trailer Brings The Matrix's Neo and Morpheus Back Together

The first full trailer for John Wick: Chapter 2 was released today at New York Comic-Con. In it, we get a brief taste of a scene between Keanu Reeves and Laurence Fishburne, bringing together two of the main characters from The Matrix trilogy.

As you’d expect from a John Wick trailer that lasts more than a few seconds, it features lots of people being shot by Wick, as well as a vow to kill everyone who gets in his way. Lance Reddick also proves himself to still be a very delightful concierge.

The trailer shows a lot of Common, who’s one of the major additions to the movie and one of the many people that Wick will shoot at. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, we see Wick’s new dog who is, as suspected, incredibly adorable.

John Wick: Chapter 2 arrives in theaters on February 10, 2017.

Hello, Leah.

I’m O, 20 years old, and have some issues that I can’t seem to control at all. I’ve been reading your column since it started, and I could relate to most of the topics you’ve talked about, but I was always doubting if I should write to you.

I’ve been struggling with depression for about 6 months now. I don’t really know how or why it started, but during this period I realized that the career I was…
