Mexico competition watchdog signs off on AT&T's Iusacell buy

6 hours 11 min ago

MEXICO CITY (Reuters) - Mexico's competition regulator on Sunday approved AT&T Inc's $1.7 billion purchase of local cellphone company Iusacell, with unspecified conditions, a statement said. The Federal Competition Commission said it set conditions on the deal to "avoid risks to the process of competition" in markets where Iusacell would compete with Carlos Slim's America Movil, which previously counted AT&T as a minority investor. America Movil is Mexico's biggest mobile operator, while Iusacell is a distant third. ...

Cadillac will let you replace your rearview mirror with a video feed in 2016

8 hours 44 min ago

In 2016, a rearview mirror with a video display built-in will be a standard option on the Cadillac CT6, the carmaker's upcoming flagship sedan. With the wide-angle video feed enabled, the "mirror" will offer a field of view up to four times greater than that of a standard mirror, according to GM. Of course, when you use a camera mounted in the car's rear instead of a mirror, you won't have to deal with kids or luggage getting in the way of your view, either.

New Final Fantasy XV trailer shows off more crazy and weird road trip action

10 hours 17 min ago

We've got to be honest: we don't really know much about the plot of the upcoming Final Fantasy XV, but we're irresistibly drawn to the idea of a road trip movie in a fantasy world. There's just nothing like pulling to the side of the road and piling out of the car to beat down a crew of dudes in armor and some massive land mammals. And as for the story, it is coming together a bit: the latest trailer for the upcoming RPG just came out of the Jump Festa 2015 Japanese convention, and it does fill in a few more gaps. And no, there's still no word on when this game will ship.

SNL's Serial spoof gets to the bottom of Santa Claus' secrets

12 hours 26 min ago

It's official: Saturday Night Live has spoofed a podcast, and, of course, it's none other than the hugely popular Serial. Fortunately, the skit is up there with some of the finest work to come out of this uneven season. Cecily Strong pulls off a pitch-perfect Sarah Koenig who's moved past true crime to answer some age-old mysteries about Santa Claus. The Christmas connection is probably the weakest link here, but did you ever think a podcast would be big enough to be parodied on SNL?

13 hours 12 min ago

By Steve Holland and Doina Chiacu WASHINGTON (Reuters) - U.S. President Barack Obama moved to prevent U.S. anger at North Korea from spiraling out of control on Sunday by saying the massive hacking of Sony Pictures was not an act of war but instead was cyber-vandalism. Washington's longstanding dispute with North Korea, which for years has centered on its nuclear weapons program, has entered new territory with the accusation that Pyongyang carried out an assault on a major Hollywood entertainment company. ...
