Zepp takes a swing at baseball with its tiny data analyzer
As someone who doesn't play baseball often, if ever, I need all the help I can get. But since America's Pastime isn't my first sport of choice to practice, I'm okay admitting how extremely terrible I am at it. For others, however, things might be a...
Government turns to robots for security interviews
National Center for Credibility Assessment is looking to bring the process of doling out national security clearances into the future. As it does more often than not, "the future" in this case means robots. Alright, well not robots exactly but a...
China and Macs power Apple's growth as iPad demand wanes
Apple had a very strong second quarter. iPhone sales were up significantly over Q2 2013 and the company pocketed $700 million more in profit than it did during the same period last year, even though iPad sales slipped slightly. The company's third...
The cloud is a big money maker for Microsoft as it rethinks hardware and content
We always want to know how Microsoft is doing, but today we're paying especially close attention: The company just released its earnings for its fourth fiscal quarter, the first full quarter that new CEO Satya Nadella was on the job. Also, let's not...
Yo and the app hype machine
Yo is a notifications app where all it does is send the word "Yo" to your friends. That's it. Just "Yo." Of course, silly single-purpose apps like these are a dime a dozen -- remember those fart apps of old? -- but the thing that sets Yo apart is...
eBay brings its RedLaser barcode-scanner app to Google Glass
You might know eBay as the website where you can buy a rare NES game for a hundred grand, but the company also has its own barcode scanner, called RedLaser. It's been out on Android and iOS for a while, and now the company is bringing it to Google...
New plugin-free web games run (almost) as well as their desktop counterparts
So far, sophisticated 3D web games have typically required either a plugin (think Quake Live) or a special environment where they can run native code. While those are just dandy, they aren't really web games, are they? That's going to change shortly,...
Apple TV now auto-plays the next episode of whatever you're watching on Netflix
When you start chugging a series, it's hard to stop, even for trips to the bathroom, or going to work, or catching up on sleep. It's a problem that Netflix loves to exploit, only giving you a few seconds before offering up the next episode of...
Wacom's sketching app finally arrives on Android, Kindle Fire and Windows 8
Wacom loves doodlers almost as much as serious artists, but its Paper-esque sketching app was limited to iOS devices only. That changes from today, now that the company has launched Windows, Android and Kindle Fire versions of Bamboo Paper. Thanks to...
LG's rollable TVs are (predictably) very flexible
Remember when LG announced that it had managed to create a rollable 18-inch display? Well, here's the proof: a very much flexible OLED display. The resolution might not be there yet (1,200 x 810, alas) but the hopes and dreams of a picnic-blanket TV...
A newer kind of web tracking is almost impossible to stop
You may think you're thwarting advertisers and other nosy web citizens by blocking cookies and invoking Do Not Track whenever possible, but that apparently isn't good enough. Researchers have just documented a newer web tracking technique, canvas...
Apple 'iTime' patent details a modular smartwatch with sensors in the band
A new Apple patent for smartwatch designs and features is bound to fuel more speculation about an incoming "iWatch," even though such claims often amount to nothing. Still, the patent is interesting on its own merits. One version shows a receptacle...

Google is adding free WiFi to Uber cars in Philadelphia, but only for the summer
We have no scientific data to back this up, but we suspect most of you are not tough enough, not resilient enough, to work on a laptop in a moving vehicle without hurling. If you're that special sort, though -- or if you just like to have your phone...

8-bit game version of The Avengers would be so much fun to play
I don't know which Avengers character I would love playing the most in this game. Would it be Iron Man so I get to use his crazy ass suit? Thor, for his long locks and hammer? Captain America's super shield? Ah, who am I kidding, it'd definitely be The Hulk.

All the supernovas ever photographed in one spectacular collection

I decided to go one step further and collect them all.
The Best Movie About a Racist's Head On a Black Man's Body Ever Made

This Warehouse Holds All Illegal Wildlife Goods Confiscated In The U.S.
Crocodile purses, polar bear rugs, ivory chalices—they're all illegal in the U.S. And no matter where they're confiscated, these pieces ends up in a warehouse outside Denver named the National Wildlife Property Repository, a haunting space filled with the frozen faces of endangered and extinct creatures.
I wanna get drunk on this Mondrian art-inspired Homer Simpson wine
PSFK reports on quite possibly the best idea since "Simpson and Son's Revitalizing Tonic." A wine inspired by two of the 20th century's most profile cultural icons. Homer Simpson and Pieter Mondrian.
Soltero: Communist Love Song
Radiolab's latest episode on the Galapagos is a real doozy: tortoise sex, Judas goats, and blood-sucking maggots. But if you're a journo nerd like me, you might be paying attention to the name of Radiolab's reporter, Tim Howard—not the U.S. Secretary of Defense (sorry, folks) but the same guy behind a much cherished song of mine.
Yep, Microsoft Killed the Surface Mini. For Real.
In an earnings report released today, Microsoft confirmed what many of us had already accepted into our hearts: The Surface Mini is dead.
The Bat-Chart of (Nearly) Every Bat-Villain Batman Ever Beat
Batman turns 75 this year, and over that time he's defeated so many baddies, even Alfred probably has trouble keeping track of them all. ZAP! Here's a pulp-inspired chart from Pop Chart Lab that chronicles (nearly) every crim banished from the streets of Gotham.
Cruise Ship Cabins Are Built on an Assembly Line Just Like Cars
Ever wonder how cruise ships are built? Well, Royal Caribbean just released a new video that sheds a little bit of light onto the process, specifically how the cabins are manufactured. It's surprisingly similar to how your Ford got built.
How the Best Seinfeld Parody on the Internet Created Seinfeld Emoji
"Imagen if Senfeld on TV today?" is a question often posed by @Seinfeld2000, an alternate universe of Seinfeld characters in contemporary situations told through garbled English and meme-ready Photoshop renderings. Now @Seinfeld2000's creator has invented his own 2014-appropriate language to communicate with fans: Seinfeld Emoji.

That's No Moon or Space Station, Just a Fantastic Death Star Rug
What's this? A piece of Star Wars-themed decor that doesn't look like a grade eight craft project? There's a chance that folks who've never even seen Star Wars might actually want this Death Star rug in their living room, since its asymmetrical design doesn't scream 'science fiction movie prop'.
Space Station 76 Pokes Fun at 1970s Futurism
You can almost hear the pitch meeting echoing through the Hollywood Hills: "It's like Anchorman, meets 2001: A Space Odyssey." And frankly, that sounds like a damn good way to spend an hour and a half. So let's hope the upcoming movie Space Station 76 lives up to the completely unfounded expectations I've created for it.
A Nanotech-Powered AIDS-Killing Condom Is Closer than Ever
Correctly used, condoms do a damn good job of preventing STDs (and pregnancy!). But nobody's gonna say no to an improvement that ups those odds. Say, a condom coated in antiviral gel that kills up t0 99.9% of HIV, genital herpes, and human papillomavirus. Australia just said yes, and hopefully the U.S. isn't far behind.
Seeing real US Navy SEALs moving underwater is way cooler than any movie
This isn't a trailer for the next Tom Clancy movie. These are real U.S. Navy SEALs showing how they get into enemy territory from the sea. They get deployed in a mini-sub launched from a nuclear submarine. Then they get out as they approach the shore at night, ready to complete their mission.
How to Get Your Sex Tape Off the Internet
The movie Sex Tape hinges on its lead couple finding it impossible to remove their raunchy homemade porno from the apparently unfathomable depths of iCloud. Their predicament is appealingly modern, if not all that realistic (as GQ proved). It got me thinking, though: How hard is it to remove a sexually explicit video you've made from the horny corners of the internet?
The Lattice of Tubes Covering This Building Are a Natural AC System
If you have ever sweated through a summer in the city, you can thank those skyscrapers all around. Tall buildings trap heat that create urban heat islands. But what if you could create a building that cools the city instead? A building skin made of a series of tubes with evaporating rainwater can do just that.

I Paid $50 for a Tinder Coach and All I Got Was This Sense of Doom
I opened the Facebook chat with my Tinder coach expecting to walk away with a hilarious story. It's a coach for Tinder; how could it be anything but? But one hour, $50, and five extensively researched photos later, I had only one thought: Holy shit, that was depressing.
The Earth Is At the Center of This Watch's Tiny Solar System
If deep down you just know that science was too quick to adopt the notion that the universe doesn't revolve around the earth, with this Ptolemaic watch on your wrist you'll be reassured we're not just some random spec in the galaxy whenever you glance down to check the time.
The Biggest Man-Made Hole on Earth
A few weeks ago, we looked at a photo essay on Mir Mine, a nearly mile-wide mine in Eastern Siberia that's one of the largest man-made holes on Earth's surface. It made us wonder: Where the largest hole ever made by humans? As it turns out, it's right here in the United States.
