3D Touch Capability

This software upgrade could give any smartphone 3D Touch

This software upgrade could give any smartphone 3D Touch

By about 55 mins ago.

Apple’s pressure-sensitive 3D Touch feature didn’t find its way to the cheaper iPhone SE, probably because of the cost of a touch-sensitive panel. But what if the SE — and any other phone with a speaker and mic — could have their own, slightly MacGuyver version of 3D Touch?

Best Universal Remote

One remote to rule them all (and it’s on sale on Amazon)

One remote to rule them all (and it’s on sale on Amazon)

Smartphones and tablets can control anything and everything these days, which is pretty awesome. The “Internet of Things” craze means most items in your home can be connected to the internet, and practically anything that can be connected to the internet can be controlled by iOS or Android. But sometimes controlling things with your phone is a pain in the butt. You have to find the right app, wait for it to open, and then you’re using up battery life unnecessarily.

Maybe you should snag the Logitech Harmony Home Companion / Home Control instead. It can control up to eight devices in your home, and it’s on sale on Amazon fro just $129.99 through Saturday, May 28. More →

Hit List

Video Game Movies

Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Here are the worst video game movies of all time

Independently, playing video games and watching movies are immensely enjoyable activities. But when the two mix, the result is often an exercise in disappointment. Likely rooted in Hollywood’s never-ending effort to print money without exercising an ounce of creativity, movie executives always seem keen on taking whatever video game happens to be hot at the moment and turning it into a movie. Even in the face of ridicule and a string of box office failures, we’ll likely never see Hollywood stop trying to turn popular video games into hit films.

Watch right here as SpaceX attempts a difficult rocket landing

SpaceX is ramping up the number of launches of its Falcon 9 rocket, which is good for the company, and great for fans of large explosions.

Tonight, Elon Musk’s rocket company is shooting a commercial communications satellite to geostationary orbit. The first stage will once again try and land on a barge in the ocean, but the trajectory of the launch means that the landing will be “challenging.”

America Nuclear Arsenal Computers

America’s nukes are controlled by dead technology and we’re afraid

America’s nukes are controlled by dead technology and we’re afraid

It’s 2016 and for some reason, the world’s most powerful nations still have nuclear weapons – you know, just in case they need them. America’s nukes are controlled by computers, no surprise there. On the plus side, these computers are so old that they can’t be hacked by zit-popping teenage hackerss. In fact, the devices used to control nukes are so old that most Snapchat users might not understand what they are.

These massively destructive weapons are actually controlled by floppy disks. That’s right, the same ones that died off years ago. Is there really nothing more modern that people can use when they have their fingers on the button?

‘Ghost Recon Wildlands’ trailer shows off the game’s massive open world

Much like the characters featured in the game itself, Ghost Recon Wildlands has been surprisingly hard to find over the past several months. After being unveiled at Ubisoft’s E3 press conference last year, Wildlands immediately went into hiding, with nary a screenshot or a trailer to be found.

In fact, I’d nearly forgotten the game even existed. Until today. More →
