Remember back when 4G LTE came out and we were all amazed by the super-fast Internet speeds we could get on our phones?

AT&T on Friday unveiled its 5G network roadmap for 2016 and if all goes according to plan, the carrier could launch services on a limited basis starting this year. More →
So many smartphones ship with support for wireless charging these days, which is pretty great. Instead of having to fumble with cables and whatnot, you simply place your smartphone on a special wireless charging pad and you’re done. Of course, there’s one big problem with wireless charging support: None of the phones that have it actually ship with wireless charging pads.
The BGR Deals team is here to solve the issue for you. For just $16 including express shipping, you can get a brand new RAVPower Mini Wireless Charging Pad that will work with any Qi compatible device. More →
After a rumor recently said Google is working on a better version of its virtual reality Cardboard headset, a detailed report indicates the upcoming device will be far more advanced than the paper model.

Do snowballs have a chance in hell? Up for a good challenge, the engineers over at GE set out to answer that question as part of the company’s celebration of Thomas Edison’s birthday this year.
What GE attempted to do was to submerge a snowball in molten steel and see if it survives. Of course, the snowball was clothed in high-tech materials. By itself, it wouldn’t stand a chance. And, naturally, there’s video for this imaginative stunt. More →

Impressively, Colbert and his writing staff managed to cram a whopping 11 different sandwich puns into one minute of airtime. More →

Online piracy skyrocketed into the 21st century this week as The Pirate Bay and Kickass Torrents adopted new technology from Popcorn Time spinoff Torrents-Time allowing users to stream TV show and movie torrents in their browsers.
Hours later, anti-piracy groups were already publicly decrying the technology, but whether you care about the obvious legal issues surrounding Torrents-Time or not, you still might want to avoid using it. More →
The Galaxy S7 leaks bonanza shows no signs of slowing down. After reports a few days ago said the phones will be available in stores on March 11th, a new rumor seems to corroborate it and reveal even more details about the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge’s release.
Better late than never. On Thursday, Ubisoft confirmed the rumors that the Assassin’s Creed series would be taking a year off for the first time since 2008. It didn’t come as much of a surprise, as rumors of the decision had been circulating for months, but it was a sigh of relief for fans of the flagging franchise.
If Assassin’s Creed is going to survive the generation, Ubisoft needs to take a step back and re-examine one of its biggest properties. More →
Last year, I expressed some enthusiasm about Apple’s new Apple TV set-top box. There was one caveat to this enthusiasm, however — I assumed that it would soon be followed by the launch of Apple’s own TV streaming service that would go head-to-head with Netflix in the battle for our living rooms.
