Best Car Crashes

Watching this guy crash his million-dollar Porsche while showing off is way too satisfying

Watching this guy crash his million-dollar Porsche while showing off is way too satisfying

By on July 31, 2015 at 3:14 PM.

Porsche’s 918 Spyder is an 887 horsepower monster that starts at $845,000. Let’s just say this car attracts… a certain type of buyer. And this shirtless guy in St. Tropez definitely fits the bill.

With his model-looking friend in the passenger seat, Mr. 918 tried to peel out in a parking lot full of people to show off. After narrowly missing a few people walking through the parking lot who would have been seriously injured at the very least had they been hit, the guy slammed into a tree.

We’re not sure how it could possibly be any more satisfying. More →

Moto X Pure Edition Unlocked Analysis

The 2015 Moto X looks like the phone that could make me love Android again

The 2015 Moto X looks like the phone that could make me love Android again

Why do Android diehards love Android? A lot of it comes down to freedom — they don’t like Apple’s walled garden approach and they love being able to have devices that have more customization options than iPhones do. But freedom isn’t just about how you use software — it’s being free from mobile carrier contracts and the assorted carrier bloatware apps that come with them. And this is why, as Droid Life’s Kellen Barranger explains, Android fans should really hope the new Moto X Pure Edition is a hit. More →

Windows 10 Review

Windows 10 review: The first 24 hours

Windows 10 review: The first 24 hours

By on July 31, 2015 at 1:15 PM.

When I first upgraded to Windows 7 back in 2009, I was shocked. Microsoft had somehow recovered from the mediocrity of Windows Vista and built an operating system that felt like the natural progression from Windows XP. It was clean, it ran better and most importantly, it didn’t try to fix what wasn’t broken.

Then Windows 8 happened.

I was smart/fortunate enough to avoid Windows 8 altogether, but as a fan of new technology, I couldn’t help but feel a little left out. I wanted the latest and greatest, and now, nearly three years later, it has arrived in the form of Windows 10.

Windows 10 shares your Wi-Fi password with all your friends – stop it using this guide

Windows 10 is the much-needed upgrade that PC users have been waiting for ever since Microsoft promised it would fix its numerous blunders in Windows 8. But that doesn’t mean Windows 10 is perfect. In fact, there are plenty of issues that need correcting, and a Day One patch might fix some of them. On top of that, there are certain privacy issues you need to be aware of, and the fact that Windows 10 is spying on you by default.

On top of that, Windows 10 will also share your Wi-Fi passwords with others by default, but that can also be fixed relatively easily. More →

It looks like the iPhone 6s is actually going to be a game-changer

The iPhone 6s and iPhone 6s Plus are both expected to come with support for Force Touch gestures, a brand new way of interacting with a device that was first seen in the Apple Watch, Retina MacBook and select MacBook Pro models. After Bloomberg said recently that both 2015 iPhones will get the new feature, a new report from Taiwan indicates that the components needed for this great new tech are already in mass production.

Blue Moon Friday July 31st

You’ll be able to see a rare blue moon tonight

You’ll be able to see a rare blue moon tonight

The phrase “once in a blue moon” is meant to describe something that’s very rare, although in reality blue moons happen once every three years or so. And actually, there’s nothing blue about a blue moon — rather, it’s a term used to describe the second time a full moon appears in a given month. The last time we had a blue moon was in 2012 and we’re not scheduled to get another one until 2018.

Windows 10: How to remove all the tiles from your Start Menu and pretend Windows 8 never existed

Windows 10 has done a fantastic job thus far of replacing the sour taste left in our mouths from Windows 8 with the sweet, sweet taste of software that’s actually intuitive and user-friendly. No longer is Microsoft attempting to cram a tablet interface down our throats on desktop and laptop computers, and that simple fact alone is likely enough to make most users happy with Windows 10. Of course, Microsoft didn’t stop there — here are some of the best new features you’ll find in Windows 10.

Of course, there are still some remnants of Windows 8 floating around in Microsoft’s new operating system, and in this post we’ll show you how to get rid of the biggest ones. More →
