Amazing Tesla Model S easter egg: Here’s what happens when you type ‘007’

A recently discovered easter egg in the Tesla Model S might very well be the coolest easter egg ever discovered. Though easter eggs (code for a hidden message or inside joke embedded in software) are typically found in PC-based programs, that didn’t stop Tesla from joining in on the fun in an incredibly awesome way.

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

And now, it’s Apple’s turn to copy Samsung

The Gear VR is probably the greatest thing Samsung has created in a long time. The simple but well-made virtual reality headset blows minds young and old. I have personally shown it to a number of people, and so far I have yet to come across anyone whose jaw didn’t drop. It’s awesome.

And it looks like Samsung’s biggest competitor may be getting ready to launch a rival device. More →

This can’t be real: Leaked Galaxy S6 earbuds look like blatant Apple EarPod ripoffs

It’s still much too soon to pass any final judgements and call Samsung’s upcoming new Galaxy S6 handset an iPhone ripoff. Yes, some of the evidence thus far has been fairly damning — this leaked Galaxy S6 vs. iPhone 6 photo comparison lets you be the judge — but everything is just a rumor until Samsung makes it official during its press conference on Sunday.

After plenty of evidence has piled up to suggest that Samsung took some pretty obvious inspiration from Apple’s iPhone 5 and iPhone 6, a new leak suggests that Samsung’s tendency to borrow from Apple may have just crossed over from flattering to just plain sad. More →

I thought the ‘What color is this dress?’ controversy was stupid… until I asked my wife to weigh in

For the past day or so, the Internet has been embroiled in what I thought was a completely stupid controversy over the color of a dress. It seems that some people think the dress, pictured above, is white and gold while others see it as blue and black. My own first instinct was to see the dress as white and gold but upon closer inspection, I realized it was likely blue and gold. Case closed? Not quite. More →

Massive SIM card hack might have been too sophisticated to be caught in time

Massive SIM card hack might have been too sophisticated to be caught in time

A new Snowden leak a few days ago revealed that the NSA and GCHQ conducted a complex hack operation that focused on obtaining the secure encryption keys that protect mobile communications in devices with SIM cards. A subsequent report revealed that the goal of spy agencies might have been a lot bigger, as they may have been hunting for other security keys that would let them deploy spyware on any mobile device with a SIM card inside, and users would have no idea that anything had happened.
