We couldn't tell you why, say, Samsung believes the word \"Galaxy\" means anything when it's attached to almost every product, but branding can often miss its mark.

Lounging around in the sun is great and all, but what to do on a rainy day? One option is to get some TV time in, and Sky's got a few updates to share that might tempt you in front of a screen on dreary afternoons. At some point this summer, shows from Fox, Universal and SyFy will be available on
