Billed as a “low-fi sci-fi” film, The Sand Storm takes place in a metropolis scoured by a water shortage. The most recognizable member of the cast is arguably Chinese artist Ai Weiwei, who plays a smuggler that finds himself tangentially ensnared in the tribulations of the local population. Dialogue is sparse in this bleak Kickstarter success, which never fully explains what is going on in the background
The movie saw its share of controversy earlier this year when Ai publicly denounced the creative team for co-opting his image and involvement as a promotional hook. He also claimed that copyrighted material were used without his consent and requested that the Kickstarter project be taken down. Director Jason Wishnow eventually issued an…

So apparently Queen Elizabeth’s royal guard took time out of their busy schedule of standing around while people make funny faces at them to perform the Game of Thrones theme in front of Buckingham Palace. This is a video of that performance. You think the Queen is the one masterminding all the complaints to George R.R. for taking to long to finish the series? “I’m already 88-years old — George needs to hurry the f*** up!” I imagine her yelling to the roomful of royal guard gathered in a secret command center deep beneath Buckingham Palace.

On this week’s Droidcast, me and Chris Velazco get tough on smartwatches, but first we discuss Nokia Android “Nokia X” device plans and other infertile hybrid animals, and HTC’s renewed commitment to customer care and how that might affect its fortunes. Finally, we talk a bit about Chromecast, Google’s mobile-to-big screen media streamer and its new SDK.
Long story short, we know a lot about Nokia’s unreleased Android phone except for why it exists; HTC made some promises to customers in an AMA recently; and Google has made the Cast SDK part of its most recent stable release of Google Play services, so we should see a slew of apps offering up support for that home theater companion.
