Disappointed in Apple? Tweeting at Tim Cook is surprisingly effective

Have you ever tagged a CEO or a company in a Twitter message out of sheer frustration? Maybe Delta lost your luggage or you found a glass shard in your salad at Panera Bread. Whatever the case, it can be a decent way to blow off steam, but every once in a while, the subject of the complaint will actually get the message. More →

‘Fargo’ is the best show on television — here’s the trailer for season 2

In the golden age of television, there are too many incredible shows for any one person to keep up with all of them. Therefore, I’d completely understand if you happened to miss Fargo on FX in 2014, but with a second season right around the corner, I implore you to catch up as soon as possible. More →

Earth is now the hottest it has ever been in recorded history

We’ve broken an incredible record in 2015, but it’s not one we should be proud of. According to the latest data from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), the first six months of 2015 were the warmest six months across land and ocean surface in our recorded history of Earth.

Amazon competitor Jet.com launches with better prices

Amazon competitor Jet.com launches with better prices

After the farce that was Prime Day, plenty of disgruntled customers would love to find another online store to patronize rather than reward Amazon for its bait-and-switch tactics.

Of course, alternatives to a storefront as enormous as Amazon are hard to come by, but on Tuesday, CEO Marc Lore launched Jet.com, a new site that combines the shopping experience of Amazon with the pricing and membership model of a wholesale store like Sam’s Club or Costco. More →

You’ve never seen the Earth like this before

You’ve never seen the Earth like this before

Over the past few weeks, Pluto has dominated the headlines. It took nearly a decade, but the New Horizons probe finally reached Pluto on July 14th, giving us our closest look yet at what used to be the ninth planet in our solar system. It has been incredible to see the dwarf planet in detail for the first time in history, but today we’re taking a break from Pluto and returning to Earth. More →

If Nintendo ever makes an Android smartphone, it should look like this

One of the most fascinating announcements that Nintendo has made in the past year is that it has plans to enter into the mobile gaming market. Within the next few months, we’ll be able to buy a first-party Nintendo game on our mobile devices for the very first time, but concept artist Pierre Cerveau decided to take the idea to its natural conclusion.

This is the Nintendo Smart Boy concept — an Android phone made by Nintendo.

Microsoft launches its first ads for Windows 10 – check them out right here

It was inevitable. They even told us it was coming, but I was still somehow surprised to see a Windows 10 ad parading around the Internet this morning. With ten days left until the launch of Microsoft’s next operating system, the first full commercial was shared on the Windows YouTube channel — an attempt to humanize a piece of software. More →

Sony Sound Bar Deal Amazon

Better than most Prime Day deals: One of Sony’s best sound bars is on sale for $170 on Amazon

Better than most Prime Day deals: One of Sony’s best sound bars is on sale for $170 on Amazon

When Prime Day kicked off last week, I think it took a few hours for the harsh reality of the situation to sink in. Amazon hyped up a sale that would eclipse Black Friday, and instead what we got was a clearance sale of junk that must have been sitting in the back of a warehouse somewhere. It really stunk, but thankfully, now that Prime Day is over, the worthwhile deals have returned. More →

John Oliver has done an incredible job of pointing out hypocrisy around the world since his tenure on Last Week Tonight began last year, but rarely has an issue struck so close to home for so many Americans as this week’s main topic of discussion.

An astoundingly immersive car chase just turned me around on Sony’s Project Morpheus

Every time I get my eyes on the latest VR project, it further strengthens my resolve that virtual reality is more than another fad. When the Oculus Rift and Project Morpheus launch next year, the landscape of gaming is going to begin to change, and it’s concepts like The London Heist that are going to lead the way. More →

Watch nearly an hour of new ‘Assassin’s Creed Syndicate’ gameplay footage

Earlier this week, I had a chance to play Assassin’s Creed Syndicate for the first time. It was one of countless games I missed at E3 this year, but after spending about 20 some odd minutes with it earlier this week, I’m beginning to think it might be a step in the right direction following the catastrophe that was Assassin’s Creed Unity.
