Video: Watch a professional archer make insane shots you wouldn’t believe if they were in a movie

Remember how badass Legolas looked in The Lord of the Rings when he would rapidly fire off arrows at hapless orcs who actually thought they had a chance to kill him? Well that’s nothing compared to Danish archer Lars Andersen, who is crazy enough to study ancient depictions of archers in an effort to teach himself long-lost archery techniques. The results, as you’ll see in a video below, are highly impressive. More →

Samsung may be learning from its biggest mistakes

Samsung’s TouchWiz Android overlay has a lot of haters out there but one of them now thinks that it’s been vastly improved with Android 5.0 Lollipop. SamMobile’s  Abhijeet M., who last year unleashed a tirade against TouchWiz for still being buggy and laggy, has now found that TouchWiz on Android 5.0 Lollipop is better than it’s ever been, although he gives Google a lot of the credit for important changes.

Business Insider’s Jim Edwards reports that that having a BlackBerry is still a big deal for many people in Davos this week, where he’s noticed that “a lot of people here are conspicuously carrying two phones: an iPhone and a Blackberry.” More →

Finally: We’ve found a group of consumers who will benefit from the Comcast-TWC merger

Comcast and Time Warner Cable have long insisted that their proposed merger will have big benefits for consumers, although opinion polls of consumers have shown that this argument hasn’t proven very persuasive. That said, consumers in Michigan actually have a very good reason to support the merger because it will mean that Comcast will leave them alone. More →

Video: McDonald’s uses 19 ingredients in its fries, insists none of them will kill you

Ever make homemade french fries? It’s pretty easy, actually — just cut up some potatoes into thin strips, dump them into a pot full of boiling oil, remove them when they turn a golden brown and then salt them to your tastes. So really, that’s three basic ingredients: Potatoes, oil (peanut and canola both work fine) and salt. If you’re McDonald’s, however, it takes an insane 19 different ingredients to make something that should be an incredibly simple meal. More →

Apple Watch Battery Life 19 Hours

We finally know what battery life will be like on the Apple Watch

We finally know what battery life will be like on the Apple Watch

Don’t expect Apple to work any miracles with the Apple Watch’s battery life. 9to5Mac’s Mark Gurman has the goods on what Apple’s aiming for with the Apple Watch’s battery and he reports that “as of 2014, Apple wanted the Watch to provide roughly 2.5 to 4 hours of active application use versus 19 hours of combined active/passive use, 3 days of pure standby time, or 4 days if left in a sleeping mode.” Right now, however, it seems that the watch will only get two or three days of pure standby time, Gurman’s sources say.
