In just about an hour, Super Bowl 50 will kick off as the Denver Broncos will attempt to pull off a major upset by defeating the rolling and seemingly unstoppable Carolina Panthers. While Cam Newton and the Panthers are heavy favorites, sources from within Denver over the past few days have indicated that Peyton Manning’s arm is stronger than it’s been in weeks, which if true, might provide us with a closer game than many analysts are anticipating.

Elon Musk is changing the world one idea at a time. First, with Tesla, the man so many people call the real life Tony Stark has done an incredible job of bringing electric vehicles to the mainstream. Second, Musk has been doing an impressive job over at SpaceX in the realm of space travel. And third, Musk’s effective rough draft of a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop is being contemplated and conceptualized in a very real way by some extremely smart people.
On the surface, a Ferrari Enzo being sold for $1.75 million at a RM Sotheby’s auction in Paris seems like a complete non-story. After all, with just about 400 ever models produced and a top speed of 221 mph, the Enzo understandably commands a high asking price.
But what makes this particular story so intriguing is that the Ferrari Enzo in question was successfully restored after being involved in a notorious and rather horrific 2006 car crash that literally split the car in two, an accident which made headlines around the world when it happened.
The beauty of smartphone cameras is that the instant you snap a photo on your phone, you can share it with the world. With a DSLR or a point and shoot camera, you can capture higher quality photos but the process of sharing them is far more complex. Or is it?

I’m not typically a fan of TV spinoffs, but Better Call Saul has seemingly broken the spinoff curse that plagues shows looking to capitalize off of the success of previous hits. To be sure, following up Breaking Bad would be a daunting task for any show, but Better Call Saul works precisely because it’s not trying to perfectly mirror all the elements that made Vince Gilligan’s meth-fueled drama so addictive and compelling. Rather, Better Call Saul seeks to carve out its own unique and independent nook within the larger Breaking Bad universe, and it does so quite successfully.
A pair of reliable sources have pegged March 15 as the date when Apple will introduce a trio of new products, including an iPhone 5se, an iPad Air 3, and a subtly enhanced version of the Apple Watch.
As the date steadily approaches, more details surrounding the iPhone 5se have continued to roll in. The most recent report, sourced from the Japanese site Mac Otakara, relays that the iPhone 5se will come in a trio of colors, including Silver, Space Gray, and interestingly enough, some form of pink hue.
Even though the iPhone 7 will not be unveiled for at least seven more months, more and more rumors about its design and features emerge every day. Some of them are more believable while others are rather on the iffy side. Such is the case with a sketchy report from Asia that proposes some wild features for the iPhone 7, including a purported design render. More →
To read some of the complaining that’s going on right now on some forums, you’d think that Apple was in the process of adding a new feature to its iPhone 7 that will block it from playing videos of cute kittens. No, it’s nothing to get that worked up over… but rumor has it Apple will remove the standard 3.5mm audio port from its new iPhone.
Well guess what: There are already a million different headphones that will work with the iPhone 7 once it’s released, and you definitely won’t have to spend a lot of money to score a pair. More →
The first episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones was a remarkable piece of television that showed the world that it was actually possible to make a TV show out of George R.R. Martin’s sprawling fantasy epic. However, things didn’t always look as good as they did in the final product, as the show’s creators recently revealed a podcast called Scriptnotes that’s hosted by screenwriters John August and Craig Mazin.

As I’ve mentioned countless times during my career at BGR, the Internet is a miraculous place full of wondrous things. Earlier this week I discovered Frinkiac, the incredible search engine that lets you find the still frames that correspond with any Simpsons quote you want to find. Along with the pyramids, the Sistine Chapel and the moon landing, I consider this one of humanity’s finest achievements.
While the video I’m about to show you doesn’t come close to the miracle of the ultimate Simpsons search engine, it’s definitely running a strong second place in the race for the coolest thing I’ve found on the web this week.
