  • 9 Things You Will Never Hear Richard Branson Say

  • Samsung Galaxy S5

    Samsung is determined to make a cannonball splash this time around with the release of their Galaxy S5. The Korean based company, who’s primary focus is on “The Next Big Thing” may have just found it. Their newest edition to the Galaxy S line is a 5.1-inch, 1080p AMOLED display which is vivid to say the least. However it’s also thin and light, weighing in at 5.1 ounces and 8.1 millimeters deep. The back is made of a easy grip perforated faux leather that makes handling the phone with one hand a little easier for someone without Andre the Giant size hands. The key distinguishing features, however, come in the form of an updated 16-megapixel rear-facing camera with a much faster auto focus thanks to a second sensor. The camera options are out of this world. A new great feature offered in the bevy of camera options is the “virtual tour” option that essentially puts a Google Street View type journey at the tip of your fingers. Another never before seen option is the HDR realtime photo option which let’s you see a preview of HDR quality photos before you actually take it, selective photo is another option that will have Instagrammers going more »

  • THE SECRETIVE, CHINESE TECH GIANT THAT CAN RIVAL FACEBOOK AND AMAZON [Link]

    Chances are, you’ve never heard of Tencent, but that’s all about to change. The Chinese tech giant is like Facebook, Twitter, WhatsApp, Zynga, and Uber all wrapped in one and it’s looking to expand outside China’s borders. Tencent was recently valued at more than $139 billion on the Hong Kong stock exchange, and with recent investments in Epic Games and Riot Games, it’s on its way to becoming a tech contender in the West. But how does it stack up with its Silicon Valley competition?

  • These 90s Video Game Ads Are So Bad…Yet So Fly [40 Photos]

    The 90s were a great time. The fall of the Soviet Union gave us a respite from the threat of  a nuclear holocaust and offered us a chance to sit back and enjoy some video games. Between the NES, SNES, Genesis, Game Boy, Game Gear, Jaguar, Nintendo 64, Playstation, Saturn, Dreamcast, and about a million other systems, there was no shortage of terrible games to choose from. But how did you know which terrible game to rent from the video store for $4 each Friday afternoon? You’d rely on the equally terrible ads for the games in magazines and comic books. Here are some of the best and worst the 90s had to offer. And check out more Video Game Print Ads on Tumblr. 

  • Could Sitcom Characters Really Afford Their Cribs? [Infographic]

    Due to the nature of TV, a large space is needed to film in, so sitcom characters tend to live in pretty big spaces. But sometimes the space is so big as to make it extremely difficult to suspend disbelief. This infographic takes 15 TV characters from current and classic shows and ranks their ability to pay for their homes. Did you believe Al Bundy could afford his two-story, 3 bedroom house on his shoe salesman salary? Not even close. And Danny Tanner, the happiest widower on TV, paying for that giant house in San Francisco for his 3 daughters and 2 best friends as host of a local morning show? They’d be on the street in no time!

  • Mapping the 11 Most Expensive Houses Ever Sold in America

    Nine-figure listings have been (relatively speaking) flying off the proverbial shelves lately, what with Connecticut’s Copper Beech Farm selling for $120M last week and L.A.’s long-unsold Fleur de Lys going for $102M cash in late March. Both of these deals are among the priciest properties ever change hands in the United States and have therefore entered a very exclusive real estate club that includes Russian billionaires and banking magnates, retractable glass walls and limestone manors, Donald Trump and 4,500 heads of cattle. Below, the 11 most expensive houses ever sold in America, from 124,000-acre ranches to four-bedroom penthouses.

  • Who Invented the Internet? It’s Not What You Think.

    We live in an age of information. An age of answers at the tip of our fingers that are at our disposal as quick as we can type them, but even with all these archives, the origins of the platform that made it all possible are still a bit fuzzy. The origins of the internet are like a mythological creature living in a lagoon in Scotland or a Sasquatch living the in the forests of Washington or Al Gore claiming he was the catalyst for the world wide web as we know it, there’s a story for everyone. There is, however, one bit of history that digs deep into the mid 20th century which unravels a great portion of the internet as we know it. And it’s not what you think.

  • Yanks Turned An Around the Horn Triple Play Against the Rays

    The New York Yankees turned the first triple play of the season against the Rays yesterday. In the past 5 seasons the Yanks have executed three total triple-plays all while CC Sabathia was on the mound. Before that the Yankees hadn’t had a triple-play since 1968, but the thing that makes this one a little more magical is that it was a perfectly executed around the horn 3 up and down 5-4-3 triple play in the second inning with the Rays’ Sean Rodriguez at bat.

  • NHL’s Good Friday Massacre Turns 30 [Video]

    On Easter weekend 1984, the Quebec Nordiques and Montreal Canadiens faced off in the second round of the NHL playoffs. Fights between the regional rivals continuously broke out for the first two periods before leading to a bench-clearing brawl at the end of the second period. When the teams returned for the third period, another fight broke out before play could even begin. Players who should have been ejected from the previous fight were still on the ice because referee Bruce Hood was late in announcing penalties. His handling, or rather mishandling, of the situation led to his retirement after the playoffs that year. In total, 10 players were ejected and 252 penalty minutes were incurred. Worst of all for the Nordiques, the Canadiens, who were down before the brawls, ended up scoring all 5 of their goals in the third period, winning 5-3.

  • 25 Creepy Easter Bunnies To Ruin Your Holiday Weekend

    Legend has it that the Easter Bunny was created to teach kids to stay away from the filthy, disease carrying vermin. What better way to warn kids of the dangers of rabbit fever than a man in an ill-fitting, foul smelling costume forcing children to sit on his lap while blinding them with flashbulbs? The poor treatment of children during Easter was actually addressed at the 1949 Geneva Conference, and although deemed cruel, it was also found to be necessary to limit exposure to E. coli. The tradition continues to this day, where children can still be found trying in vain to escape the clutches of the awful Easter Bunny only to be rewarded with a hollow chocolate facsimile of the creature to devour on Sunday morning. Just don’t let them eat real rabbits. The lack of fatty acids in the meat causes rabbit starvation. Devious bastards.

  • We Go Behind the Scenes for the Jordan XX9 Release

    Today marks a revolutionary day for Jordan Brand. The brand released their XX9 signature shoe and as we’re going to see is the first of it’s kind. Each year Jordan sets out to push the boundaries of performance and design. Their new “Tailored For Flight” campaign focuses around their new woven technology. Last year the brand focused on a huge step in stability in compression and deflection with their Flight Plate innovation in the XX8 and this year, Jordan is taking it up a notch with a modified plate and completely woven upper. The Jordan team traveled to Italy to find the premier craftsmen and machines for weaving. Using state-of-the-art weaving machines, the team learned they could provide all four major elements of the shoe in a single layer of material. The upper woven materials constrict, but also extract to the players foot creating one seamless mold with minimal foot hotspots. The modified plate provides managed compression and deflection of the Nike Zoom Air cushioning units, creating a larger sweet spot for optimal performance. The shoe marks the first time since the Jordan XI were released that the brand was worried they wouldn’t make deadline. Tinker Hatfield, Nike’s Vice President for more »

  • The 10 Greatest Plot Twists In Entertainment History

    To be a professional storyteller—you must be able to craft intertwining storylines that come together at the end to form a gratifying conclusion. Sometimes, however, the road to the aforementioned conclusion is a tumultuous one—riddled with plot twists that left the audience collectively shouting, “what the (insert arbitrary expletive here)” And, given the trend to constantly keep the viewer guessing, television and cinema have become adept at inserting interspersed moments of expletive-shouting moments of bafflement.

  • Facebook to Notify Users When Friends are Nearby

    In a move that will fire up provacy watchdogs across America Facebook announced that users will soon be able to receive notices on their mobile app when they’re near friends, signaling an effort by the online social network to play a bigger role in real-world interactions reports the WSJ. TechCrunch has a deep analysis of how Nearby Friends works, how it was built, its privacy implications, how it impacts the competitive landscape, and its long-term opportunities for Facebook. But here’s the tl;dr version: Nearby Friends was built by the Glancee location sharing app team led by Andrea Vaccari that Facebook acquired in 2012. It adds a list of nearby friends to Facebook’s iOS and Android apps. It will also send notifications if you come within a short distance of a friend, and if someone shares their precise location with you you’ll see it on a map. Vaccari tells me “the idea is to make it really easy to discover when someone is around you, and meet up and spend time together.” It wants to facilitate those serendipitous meetups where you run into a friend and end up having a meal or hanging out together. It’s a meatspace manifestation of Facebook’s mission to more »
