While it’s a definite possibility given that NASA now believes the Red Planet once had a vast ocean on its surface, we’ve certainly seen no evidence that there’s any intelligent life on Mars. However, the amateur Fox Mulders of the world Want To Believe and they think they’ve uncovered evidence that an ancient civilization of intelligent being once lived on Mars. And that evidence is… wait for it… a grainy image taken by the Mars Curiosity Rover that seems to show a pyramid-shaped rock. More →

Legendary Nintendo Designer Explains Why the Wii U Flopped So Hard

Jay Z’s Tidal is in a State of Chaos – Second CEO Fired in 3 Months

Tonstad was always intended to be an interim CEO but apparently Tidal didn’t want him to hold down that post any longer while it looked for a permanent chief executive. According to WSJ, Tidal “will be run by executives in New York and Oslo until a new chief is in place.” More →
