Video: Watch Marshawn Lynch and Gronk play Mortal Kombat on Conan

Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch and Rob Gronkowski are two of the NFL’s most entertaining personalities, although for very different reasons. While Gronk is a gregarious, hard-partying lug, Lynch is often hilariously unfriendly during media interviews and will often respond with a single sentence to every question he gets asked. Conan O’Brien decided to get the two of them together during Super Bowl week down in Arizona to play the yet-to-be-released game Mortal Kombat X and the results were about as amusing as you’d expect.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Tennis star Novak Djokovic faces off against an M1 Abrams tank

Tennis legend Novak Djokovic has stared down Federer and Nadal… but he’s never faced a foe quite as fearsome as this. YouTube user timtimfed has created a hilarious video in which a digital Vietnam-era M1 Abrams tank is edited in with footage of Djokovic playing a match at the Australian Open. The result shows that Djokovic is more than capable of beating the tank at tennis, although that still doesn’t stop the tank from being a sore loser and blowing him up at the end. More →

Microsoft may have found the perfect way to cap Google at the knees

Google’s Android platform has basically become to smartphones what Windows has long been for desktop computers and laptops — that is, it’s the dominant player in terms of raw market share.

FCC Broadband Vote 25Mbps

FCC commissioner makes the most boneheaded argument against raising broadband standards

FCC commissioner makes the most boneheaded argument against raising broadband standards

The Federal Communications Commission on Thursday voted to raise the standards of what constitutes broadband from any service that offers download speeds of 4Mbps or higher to any service that offers download speeds of 25Mbps or higher. ISPs were obviously not happy with this vote since it means that a lot of their service offerings — particularly AT&T and Verizon’s DSL networks — no longer count as broadband services. More →

The FTC’s latest ruling should send a chill down AT&T’s spine

Is your “unlimited” mobile data really unlimited if your carrier throttles it down to slower speeds at certain times? Per Re/code, the Federal Trade Commission this week ordered prepaid mobile carrier TracFone to pay $40 million for throttling its customers’ data connections despite the fact that they had signed up for “unlimited” data plans. However, it’s the FTC’s rationale for why TracFone should pay up that really ought to make larger carriers like AT&T worry. More →

Why Is Comcast So Bad

Comcast is sorry it called customer an ‘a**hole’ on their bill

Comcast is sorry it called customer an ‘a**hole’ on their bill

Anyone who has worked in customer service knows that it can be a miserable job that involves dealing with rude, angry people. That said, the generally accepted way to deal with rude customers is to keep any such negative feelings about them to yourself, or at the very most only share them with your friends and colleagues. This unwritten rule doesn’t seem to have stopped one Comcast customer service representative from changing a customer’s first name to “A**hole” in the company’s database and keeping it there until the customer received their monthly bill with the expletive written at the top of the page.
