Microsoft's new Windows 10 operating system is beloved by tech bloggers, but people concerned with privacy will want to read this right away...
Windows 10 has done a fantastic job thus far of replacing the sour taste left in our mouths from Windows 8 with the sweet, sweet taste of software that’s actually intuitive and user-friendly. No longer is Microsoft attempting to cram a tablet interface down our throats on desktop and laptop computers, and that simple fact alone is likely enough to make most users happy with Windows 10. Of course, Microsoft didn’t stop there — here are some of the best new features you’ll find in Windows 10.
Of course, there are still some remnants of Windows 8 floating around in Microsoft’s new operating system, and in this post we’ll show you how to get rid of the biggest ones. More →

Tom Cruise’s Mission: Impossible movies are always fun to watch. They might not win the Oscar for the best motion picture, but they’re packed with action, special effects and incredible stunts, including some crazy performances from the actual star of the show — check out one of Cruise’s stunts for Rogue Nation.

For the past several months, I’ve been unable to surf the web on my MacBook Air without having it sound like a rocket ship taking off. While things weren’t quite that bad on my Windows 8.1 desktop PC, I still had to deal with my fair share of slow loading times and Shockwave crashes that would regularly drive me up the wall. However, all this changed when I finally did something that I should have done a long, long time ago: I disabled Adobe Flash on both computers. More →
Windows 10 is amazing. Windows 10 is fantastic. Windows 10 is glorious. Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 is everything Windows 8 should have been, addressing nearly all of the major problems users had with Microsoft’s previous-generation platform in one fell swoop.

When it comes to raw acceleration relative to price, you’d be hard pressed to come up with a car as impressive as the Tesla Model S P85D. With a push of a button, Tesla’s upper-tier model can go from 0-60 mph in just 3.2 seconds flat. Fittingly, Tesla calls this mode Insane Mode.
But as any physics student could tell you, acceleration and speed aren’t the same thing. So while the performance edition of the Model S is an absolute beast getting off the line, that doesn’t necessarily translate into being the most impressive car on the track, speed wise.
Google has admitted its beta Glass launch was a mistake, but that doesn’t mean the company is giving up on the project. Google has stopped selling Explorer versions earlier this year, putting former Apple iPod creator and Nest founder Tony Fadell in charge of the project.

If a device is connected to a wireless network, chances are some talented hackers will find a way to take advantage of its software flaws to make it do what they want, whether we’re talking about smartphones, computers, routers, and even rifles. Yes, there’s a smart Internet-connected rifle out there that can turn anyone into a perfect shot — but some hackers found out how to disable it and even change its target. More →
After years of anticipation, Windows 10 has finally arrived. Although Microsoft will undoubtedly be spending the next several weeks ironing out the kinks of its new operating system, the reaction from users and critics alike has been largely positive, proving that Windows 10 is a huge step up over the ill-fated Windows 8.
Ever wondered which U.S. state would emerge as the winner if a war broke out between all the American states? What if there was no USA as we know it today, and each state battled its neighbors in hopes of conquering them and securing more resources? It’s not a movie — at least not yet — but one former Marine has imagined the frightening scenario in great detail. More →
