Now we know why C-3PO had a red arm in ‘The Force Awakens’

There are plenty of mysteries in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and one of them involved iconic droid C-3PO. In case you didn’t notice, C-3PO had a red left arm instead of his usual gold-colored arm. This mysterious change was totally unexplained in the movie itself and we’ve never had any answer for it… until now.

Per iO9, the first issue of the new Marvel comic Star Wars: C-3PO #1 offers details about how C-3PO got his not-so-shiny new red arm. Spoilers obviously follow below.

Yep, some guy really installed Flappy Bird on an e-cigarette

I haven’t thought about Flappy Bird for a long time, and with good reason. It just wasn’t that great of a game despite the fact that the Internet became briefly obsessed with it more than two years ago. That said, I do appreciate games that are so simple that you can port them to just about anything… including e-cigarettes. A mad genius named Balázs Bank really managed to port Flappy Bird to his VTC Mini E-Cigarette and he’s got video to prove it. More →

It looks like HTC finally fixed its phones’ biggest weakness

It looks like HTC finally fixed its phones’ biggest weakness

HTC has made a lot of promises with the HTC 10 but the one that will make Android fans most skeptical is the promise that it’s finally improved the camera on its flagship device. However, there’s some good news here: DxOMark has released its review of the HTC 10’s camera on Tuesday and it ranked it right up there with the Galaxy S7 as the best smartphone camera in the world right now. That’s high praise and it’s indicative that HTC took complaints about past phones’ cameras to heart over the last year. More →

So, who else puts tape over their laptop’s webcam?

As I said earlier, I’m admittedly paranoid. But I’m not alone. More →

As expected, Tesla on Tuesday took the wraps off a refreshed version of its Model S electric car. Among other things, the refreshed Model S is going to get the same air filtration system that’s in the Model X, which opens the door for it to get the “bioweapon defense mode” feature.

One year after its launch, things aren’t looking up for Apple Watch

It’s been nearly one year since the launch of the Apple Watch. While the device is easily the most successful smartwatch ever released, it hasn’t exactly set the world on fire the way the iPhone and iPad once did. Well connected analyst Ming-Chi Kuo of KGI Securities is projecting that Apple Watch shipments are actually going to decrease by 25% this year despite the fact that Apple is planning to release a second-generation Apple Watch.
