Former Browns quarterback Bernie Kosar said in a statement that he has been removed as color analyst for Cleveland's preseason games because of slurred speech. He says his removal "stems from my slurred speech impairment, which is a direct result of the many concussions I received while playing in the NFL. " Kosar is being replaced by Solomon Wilcots, the Browns announced Wednesday. Kosar called that decision "unfortunate," adding that doing the preseason games was "truly one of the remaining joys in my life.

Very few shows could pull off a homage to the death of Philip Seymour Hoffman without seeming exploitative, sensational or culturally carnivorous. Only one could do it in the middle of an episode dealing with a bunch of missing anthrax and Garret Dillahunt as a dairy farmer. Two years ago, when CBS premiered the crime-procedural "Elementary," the decision to make Sherlock Holmes (played by Jonny Lee Miller) a modern-day recovering addict seemed equally canny and risky. Holmes is indeed literature's most famous and enduring druggie - in Nicholas Meyer's "Seven-Percent Solution" none other than Sigmund Freud helped him kick the coke habit.

New code found within Apple's software seems to indicate the tech giant will be bringing its Siri voice assistant to the next version of the Apple TV, a report Wednesday said. That may mean that Apple will compete against the new $99 Amazon Fire TV for customers on the high-end of the video-streaming market. The Amazon Fire TV was announced and released earlier this month. It can stream audio and video from services such as Netflix and Pandora the same way other gadgets in this market do. But unlike many of its rivals, the Fire TV also comes with voice search and the ability to play video games.
