Stephen Colbert thinks Julian Assange looks like a terrible roommate

TwitterFacebook

Reported details have emerged about Julian Assange’s seven years within the Ecuadorian embassy, and Stephen Colbert reckons they make the Wikileaks founder look like quite the crappy roommate.

The Late Show host is not just talking about the embassy accusing Assange of spying on other countries from the building, and hacking the phone of President Lenin Moreno, either.

Aside from reports of Assange skateboarding inside at night, playing loud music, and schmearing ungodly things on the…

Jimmy Fallon plays that game he truly hates with a brave Kate Beckinsale

TwitterFacebook

Plunge your hands into a box and try to guess what’s inside it without looking. It’s a truly horrific concept for a game, one that’s generated plenty of fun times on The Tonight Show.

But Jimmy Fallon always gets pretty squeamish playing “Can You Feel It,” as do his guests. On Wednesday, the late night show host invited The Widow star Kate Beckinsale to play, and there was plenty of screaming (mainly on Fallon’s part).

“It’s sticky and wet. It’s a poo! It’s a huge poo!” Beckinsale said…

TwitterFacebook

Facebook’s smart speaker didn’t ship with a rival to Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. But the company is now working on its own digital assistant, according to a new report from CNBC.

It’s not clear exactly how the assistant will work or what it will be called, though CNBC reports it could be integrated with Facebook’s Oculus virtual reality headsets or with the company’s Portal speakers.
