How Google Chrome is keeping you safe from malware

No matter how hard you work to ensure your private data stays safe, it’s impossible to account for every potential security threat, as most recently illustrated by Lenovo’s bizarre adware catastrophe. Thankfully, there are other technology companies that consider security a priority, which is why Google’s latest Safe Browsing expansion is worth highlighting. More →

Watch HBO’s hilarious Game of Thrones blooper reel right now

There are few shows on television as gripping, gruesome and dramatic as Game of Thrones, but as with any television show, the actors still occasionally flub their lines, drop their props and stumble across the landscape of Westeros.

Ahead of the season 5 premiere, a short clip of bloopers from last season has started making the rounds, seemingly as part of the Game of Thrones exhibit that will be touring the world this year. More →

Teens React to The Last of Us Part 2

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Teens react to The Last of Us (again)

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Teens react to The Last of Us (again)

We’ve shared several videos from The Fine Brothers’ REACT channel, but none have been quite as dramatic as the group of teenagers reacting to the opening scene of The Last of Us. It’s one of the most affecting scenes in any game of the past several years, and the video stirred up enough interest to turn the play through into a longer series.

This past weekend, we finally got to see part 2.

Google Glass 2 Prototypes

Google Glass 2 prototypes reportedly already in the hands of developers

Google Glass 2 prototypes reportedly already in the hands of developers

Despite the fact that Glass was all but a complete misfire for Google, the project isn’t going away any time soon. Earlier this month, Tony Fadell told The New York Times that “future products” in the Glass line won’t be subjected to the same public experimentation as the first-generation model.

So we probably won’t see “Google Glass 2” at every tech event in 2015, but if a report from 9to5Google is to be believed, prototypes of the new version of the device might already be in the hands of developers. More →

Celebrate the PS Vita’s birthday with this incredible sale

The PS Vita is one of the best portable consoles ever released, but Sony is far too concerned with the continued success of the PlayStation 4 to spend much time focusing on the Vita. Worst of all, Sony has been anything but quick to respond to fans who are worried about the future of the Vita.

This was most clearly illustrated during a short spell where it became impossible to even find a Vita. More →

Lenovo Adware Affected Applications

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

Lenovo’s adware disaster is even worse than we thought

News broke late last week that Lenovo had been shipping laptops with man-in-the-middle adware preinstalled which could hijack HTTPS traffic and insert its own ads onto websites that users were visiting.

This major security threat was initially found lurking in just two pieces of software on Lenovo’s computers, but the number rose dramatically over the weekend as Ars Technica reports security researchers discovered more applications riddled with adware. As of Sunday, at least 14 applications have been found to use the technology which puts users at risk. More →

One magician needs nothing but an iPad to perform his magic tricks

Reading comments from Apple fans on around the Internet, it probably won’t take long to find someone referring to the iPad as a “magical” device. Although Apple’s tablet is undeniably one of the best on the market, it can’t bend the fabric of reality — at least, it couldn’t until German magician Simon Pierro got his hands on it. More →
