Apple's future is more exciting than you can even imagine
14 reasons the Apple doomsday preppers have absolutely no idea what they're talking about...
As the CEO of both Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk is often regarded as a real-life version of Tony Stark. But truth be told, Musk isn’t the only prominent CEO with two jobs and grand aspirations for space travel. While Jeff Bezos is primarily known as the CEO of Amazon, he’s also the founder of Blue Origin, a privately funded spaceflight services company.
Similar to what Elon Musk is trying to do with SpaceX, Blue Origin is primarily focused on developing technologies that will allow private citizens to travel to space without breaking the bank. And though Blue Origin receives a lot less press than SpaceX, the Jeff Bezos led company this past November launched a rocket about 62 miles up into the atmosphere (the outskirts of space) and successfully managed to land it back on earth in one piece.
We’re two episodes into the new season of Game of Thrones, and we’ve already seen more than half-a-dozen people meet the gods of Westeros. Death is one of the recurring characters in the popular HBO series, and it often takes away some of our favorite heroes. It did so with Jon Snow, albeit temporarily, which was a major upset for fans. By now you’ve heard that he returned from the dead even if you don’t watch the show, so we haven’t really spoiled anything at this point. But if you don’t want to know how Jon Snow’s resurrection impacts the show, then stop reading now, as some huge spoilers follow below. More →
Hey, remember Windows Phone? You probably don’t and for a long time it seems like Microsoft hasn’t remembered it either. Behind the scenes, however, it looks like Microsoft has been working on new features for its mobile operating system and at least one of them is really cool. Per The Verge, Microsoft recently took the wraps off a new feature that it describes as “pre-touch sensing for mobile interaction.” Essentially, this feature can detect when your fingers are near the devices display and will automatically put up menu options for you to use.

Jon Snow isn’t the only Jon that HBO fans are excited to see return to television this year. Speaking with CNN’s Brian Stelter in a Paley Media Council interview this week, HBO CEO Brian Plepler was asked about the chances that Jon Stewart would make his way on to the network before the election in November.
“Yeah, I’m hopeful,” Plepler responded. More →

You know what day is today, right? It’s Captain America: Civil War day, at least in North America. The movie raked in more than $200 million during its international rollout last week, and it will likely crush the U.S. box office this weekend. But that doesn’t mean we don’t have plenty of other exciting new trailers to check out this week. More →
The internet is an incredible resource full of invaluable information and tools to keep us connected to friends and family all over the world. It’s also a nightmare place that has permanently changed the way that we interact with one another.
That’s why Louis C.K. quit the internet a month ago.
It’s 2016 and you no longer need a $150,000 car to have a head-up display. In fact, you don’t need a $100,000 car, a $75,000 car, a $50,000 car or even a $25,000 car. You can buy a used beater from a gas station on the side of the highway for $200 and have access to the same head-up information available in luxury cars.

A week ago, EA revealed that it would announce the next entry in the Battlefield franchise on Friday, May 6th. Battlefield fans — the day has arrived, and to celebrate, the developers have been hosting a live stream for much of the day, playing through some of the previous games and hyping up the future of the series.
But at 4 p.m. ET, the 2016 sequel will finally be unveiled.
In case you haven’t noticed, T-Mobile will go to great lengths to troll its rivals, particularly AT&T. That said, we never expected that T-Mobile CEO John Legere would ever go this far just to take a shot at a rival carrier.
Per ESPN, Legere this week paid $21,800 for the rights to pick out a temporary tattoo that will be placed on track star Nick Symmonds’s right shoulder. This being Legere, he immediately started musing about whether to give the tattoo an anti-AT&T message. More →
No one can see the future but when it comes to Apple, some things are becoming surprisingly safe bets. For example, when Apple releases a new iPhone we can safely assume that it will be one of the most powerful and well-designed smartphones the world has ever seen. But on the flip side of the coin, it’s becoming equally safe to assume that any new service-based products Apple introduces are going to take a bit of time to mature.
That’s putting it mildly, to say the least. Another way to put it would be to say that Apple’s new software-based products are often a total mess at first, and it looks like we’ll soon see the company reel things in with its latest launch. More →
