How much does Yoda weigh? That’s probably a question you hardly think about. It doesn’t really matter how big he is, or how much he weighs. He’s just freaking awesome, and the Force is so strong in him. However, leaving the Force aside, some Star Wars fans are nonetheless curious about the little guy’s weight, which is why they conducted an experiment to estimate it. More →

All I want to do is drive around in Final Fantasy XV’s enormous open world

All I want to do is drive around in Final Fantasy XV’s enormous open world

I haven’t stopped thinking about Final Fantasy XV ever since I played through the demo earlier this year. It has some kinks to work out, but development appears to be progressing as fast as we could hope from a Final Fantasy title. On Monday, Square Enix helped ease the pain of the long wait with a new gameplay video starring the game’s iconic car.

Apple Music’s abject marketing failure

Apple two weeks ago was forced to defend its nascent Apple Music service following a report which claimed that 48% of users who signed up for the streaming service were no longer using it. Offering a rebuttal, Apple subsequently said that only 21% of the millions of subscribers who signed up for a three-month trial had left the fold. More →

Killer Amazon deal: A 49-inch 4K TV for under $550

4K content is becoming more and more common these days. That said, there still aren’t really enough ultra HD movies and TV shows out there to warrant spending thousands of dollars on a 4K HD TV. But guess what: You don’t have to spend thousands to get a high-quality ultra HD TV.  More →

Google Chrome is finally fixing the most annoying thing about browsing the web

When Google Chrome finally added a speaker symbol to open tabs that were playing music or other types of audio, the Internet rejoiced. But as great as this feature was, it didn’t solve all of our Chrome frustrations.

If you happen to be one of those people who have multiple tabs and windows open when browsing the web, sometimes searching for that lone and mysterious tab with the speaker icon can itself be frustrating. Thankfully, Google has now come up with a way to solve this nuisance once and for all.

DDoS Attacks Report 2015 Trends

DDoS attacks are getting much more powerful and the Pentagon is scrambling for solutions

DDoS attacks are getting much more powerful and the Pentagon is scrambling for solutions

By on August 31, 2015 at 3:10 PM.

No wonder the Pentagon has announced it’s working on a plan to fund tools and researchers to help organizations defend themselves against the pervasive threat of cyber assaults known as distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks.

In recent days, the agency said it’s looking to fund researchers who can come up with tools as part of a program starting next April that would, among other things, help organizations recover from DDoS attacks in a maximum of 10 seconds. And the acknowledgement of that hunt for researchers for the program, called Extreme DDoS Defense, arguably comes not a moment too soon.

This iPhone 6 case has a secret power

If we could snap our fingers and give our iPhone case any magical power, it would be a tie between having it power and protect our phone simultaneously… and having it stop us from those ill-advised late-night impulse buys/texts. Unfortunately, we’re out of luck for the latter. As for the former, there’s the Slim Juicer 3100mAh battery case for the iPhone 6, now $30.99 at the BGR Store. More →

Video reveals how claw machines are rigged to steal your money

Most people, I think it’s fair to say, have something of a love/hate relationship with claw machines. Typically overflowing with plush stuffed animals and even some nifty gadgets from time to time, mastering a claw machine seems easy but, more often than not, leads to endless frustration.

Now you might know someone who claims to be a claw machine master. Perhaps you even fancy yourself something of a claw machine sensei. Alas, skill has a lot less to do with successfully landing that stuffed animal than you think.

In short, claw machines are rigged.

Four-day Workweeks Raise Productivity

Four-day work weeks are growing in popularity and you’ll absolutely love them

Four-day work weeks are growing in popularity and you’ll absolutely love them

Being stuck in an office five days a week for at least eight hours a day doesn’t necessarily make you more productive, as there are plenty of ways to pretend you’re working when you really aren’t. In fact, it looks like more and more companies have come to realize that their employees might be better off working four-day work weeks since they’ll still be able to get the job done in spite of taking more personal time.
