Jellyfish and squids are inspiring creatures of the sea and researchers already created a material that mimics some of the properties of their skins. The material could be used to display hidden messages, such as telling an Apple genius that your iPhone was submerged in liquid for a certain amount of time, regardless of what your version of the story is.
Hundreds of thousands of people have pre-ordered a Tesla Model 3, which means hundreds of thousands of people are currently waiting impatiently for their next car. The two-year wait is a long time to be without new wheels, so Tesla has a new offer that should help pass the time.
For a limited time, the company will offer two-year leases on the Model S and Model X. It’s not explicitly angled at people waiting for a Model 3, but it’s a solid way for buyers who can’t wait two years to get in a Tesla for less than $600 a month.
You’d have thought that nobody can steal your Tesla thanks to its advanced tracking system. Thieves foolish enough to try to get away with it could be easily caught with the help of the on-board GPS. However, that’s not really the case. Tesla cars are incredibly valuable, which means thieves will do whatever it takes to grab one and leave no traces behind. In fact, at least two such thefts have already been reported in Europe. More →

When one thinks of institutions and places that house some of the brightest mathematical minds on the planet, one tends to think of companies like Google and academic institutions like MIT and Cal Tech. But flying somewhat underneath the radar is the National Security Agency (NSA), the famed intelligence agency that was unwittingly thrust into the spotlight following Edward Snowden’s massive leak of classified NSA material.
The NSA likely houses the largest group of world-class cryptographers and mathematicians than any other place in the world. Suffice it to say, if you’re mathematically inclined and want to make it at the NSA, you don’t just need to be good at math, you need to uniquely excel at it.
Since the day Pokemon Go launched, gamers have been poking through the game’s code to find any hidden secrets the developers might have hidden within. For the first several days, there wasn’t much to talk about, but in the ensuing weeks, dozens of exciting tidbits have come to light.
One of the most critical components of a smartphone is the built-in storage, which can make a huge difference in overall performance. Tests repeatedly show that Apple’s iPhone 6s is the fastest smartphone when it comes to storage speed, beating all rivals including high-end handsets from Samsung. Of course, the competition is getting better and better when it comes to built-in and expandable storage speed, with Samsung having already confirmed it has big plans in the years ahead.
So, how does the brand new Galaxy Note 7 fare when it comes to storage performance? More →
Photos will never bend again. Recipes will never be ruined by spills. Note cards will never be smeared after hours of intense studying. Why? Because you’ve got a Swingline Inspire Plus Thermal Laminator, which can laminate just about anything you want that’s flat and less than 9 inches wide. Amazon’s standard $30 price is a bargain for something as useful as Swingline’s laminator, but today only it’s on sale in three colors for just $16. More →
At the end of the day, every Pokemon Trainer has only one goal in mind: catching them all. That’s the key tenet of any Pokemon adventure, but with Pokemon Go, it’s more difficult than ever to actually accomplish that goal.
Not only are some of the rarest Pokemon currently impossible to catch, but others can only be found in specific regions, so the only way to add them to your collection is to hatch them from an egg. For the most part, this simply requires a great deal of walking, but over the weekend, CNET published some worthwhile tips to help you hatch eggs more efficiently in Pokemon Go.
Sony is increasing the price of its Playstation Plus membership to $60 for the year starting in September. That’s a $10 increase over what it is currently, so unless you hate free money, you should go buy this Playstation Plus gift card right now.
The increase takes effect starting on September 22nd. A yearly membership will be $60 going forwards, and the three-month membership is $25. Basically, if you use Playstation Plus, which you probably do if you play Playstation games online, a yearly membership is a good idea.
Whenever we see the word “tracking,” we expect to find out more details about a covert NSA operation that was unearthed in a new series of Snowden leaks, a story about an application that may have breached your privacy, or an online service that found novel ways of tracking its users. That is the future we live in. And that future is only getting better when it comes to smart connected devices able to perform magical tricks at home.
But for them to automate some of the smart home controls we set up, they’ll need to be able to figure out whether we’re present in a room. So, a team of researchers created a Wi-Fi tracking system that can recognize a person in a room by the way he or she interacts with Wi-Fi signals.
A laptop connected to a dumb Wi-Fi router would be able to tell exactly who it is at home with the help of the new invention. More →
Britney Spears’ career may be filled with no shortage of ups and downs, but the pop sensation has impressively managed to remain a relevant fixture in the entertainment industry for a good 15+ years.
Currently holding a residence in Las Vegas at Planet Hollywood, Spears recently took some time off from performing to record her ninth studio album; not too shabby for someone who endured and came back from a highly publicized nervous breakdown a few years back.
