Netflix testing out personalized profiles for their streaming services.Netflix testing out personalized profiles for their streaming services.

The test version showed separate viewing histories and recommendations for each profile. Users are able to fine-tune their profile by telling Netflix about their movie preferences, and profiles for kids under 12 are automatically based on the service’s Just for Kids UI. In addition, parents are able to restrict the type of content displayed on a kids profile based on movie ratings.

Engadget goes eyes-on with Samsung's new 85 inch television set.Engadget goes eyes-on with Samsung's new 85 inch television set.

The company calls the stand a 'timeless gallery' frame, and indeed the set would fit right in with some of the more conceptual pieces at the MoMA. Still, that easel-like design could be a bit limiting for some living rooms, so you can remove the S9 and wall-mount it -- though the 2.2 channel audio is built into that frame. Unique design aside, this TV is all about the high-end specs.

Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.Watch Dan Castellaneta chat about the inspiration behind some of his voices on The Simpsons.

This is an interesting / fun video for anybody who happens to be a fan of The Simpsons. Dan Castelleneta does an alarmingly high number of voices on the show (somewhere in the neighborhood of 12-15 characters). Fun fact, you'll usually see a random Simpsons quote (less random now with the new design) in the header of GLM. Guess the episode, win a cookie.

Some casting news for next season of Game of Thrones for those interested.Some casting news for next season of Game of Thrones for those interested.

After seeing the first season I've been hooked on this show and can't wait for season two (which will most likely surface next year). The books are also a fun read as well and I recommend them to anyone looking to pick up on their summer reading.  If you are more of a summer television watcher then go watch the series, you won't be disappointed.
