Apple’s “1984” ad is justifiably one of the most famous in the history of tech and it’s also wonderfully easy to parody. Ben & Jerry’s has done one of the best parodies of this iconic ad that we’ve ever seen to help promote its new BRRR-ito ice cream sandwich. More →

The DMV recently declared the license plate ‘370H55V’ to be obscene – can you guess why?

Apple Original Homepage

What the first Apple.com homepage looked like

What the first Apple.com homepage looked like

Many of the earliest website designs to populate the web are nothing more than distant and irretrievable memories. While sites like the The Internet Archive Wayback Machine provide a great way to take a stroll back through Internet time, their index only goes back so far.

So it goes with the Apple.com homepage. Archived versions of Apple’s homepage on the Wayback Machine only go back to October 1996, a shame given that Apple had a website up and running for many years prior.

French government really doesn’t want you comparing its new surveillance bill to the Patriot Act

France insists it’s not working on a French version of the U.S. Patriot Act that would give the government massive additional surveillance powers, The Verge reports. But the French government is definitely interested in passing a law that would give it more freedom to collect information in its fight against terrorism, even if local businesses and human rights organizations are criticizing the initiative.

One way the new Retina MacBook is better than any other Mac

Some people have criticized the Retina MacBook since its official announcement both for its lone USB-C port and for the fact that it can’t deliver the same performance as other 2015 laptops. However, these criticisms have often ignored that Apple is giving a preview of the future for its mobile devices. If you want more evidence that the new MacBook is head of its time, look no further than a new discovery made during a recent teardown that shows how it’s better than any other Mac in one crucial aspect.

Hollywood Studios Vs. Netflix VPNs

How Hollywood is waging war against VPNs

How Hollywood is waging war against VPNs

Virtual private networks (VPNs) aren’t some wild-and-crazy piece of hacker technology — in fact, anyone who’s ever worked remotely has likely connected to corporate email through a VPN many times before. However, VPNs can also be used to fool video streaming services such as Netflix into thinking you’re actually living in a different country, which can give you unauthorized access to streaming content that’s not available in your market. Because of this, entertainment studios have been making a big push on both ISPs and streaming services to crack down on VPN use, as two stories that broke this week demonstrate. More →
