Walmart offers a boneheaded explanation for why it’s blocking Apple Pay

There’s really no good way to spin Walmart, CVS and Rite Aid’s decision to collectively block NFC-enabled mobile payment platforms such as Apple Pay and Google Wallet. This is especially true because the merchants’ real reason for blocking these platforms is because they want to instead promote CurrentC, the mobile app developed by the Merchant Customer Exchange (MCX) that’s significantly less convenient and that collects such a disturbing amount of data that even diehard Google fans are a little creeped out by it.

The rerelease of Grand Theft Auto V is one of the most anticipated video game launches of the new generation, but Rockstar is aware that many of the customers who already bought the game once are going to need a few incentives to consider double-dipping.

The ACLU’s nightmare scenario: Cartman gets a drone on South Park this week

The use of unmanned drones by both governments and private citizens has been hugely controversial in recent years, but even the most alarmist among us have never contemplated a nightmare drone scenario like this. More specifically, no one has ever imagined how awful things could possibly be if South Park’s Eric Cartman somehow gained possession of his own drone.

Video: This app lets you journey through the Large Hadron Collider with Leap Motion and Oculus Rift

Many things have been said about the Large Hadron Collider that are untrue. The chances of it opening a black hole and swallowing the solar system are close to zero, no matter how many times it occurs in a movie or television show. That said, the Collider still isn’t something you can just go walk around in while on vacation, and since you will likely never actually get to see the Large Hadron Collider up close, wouldn’t you like to experience what it’s like to be a particle flying inside it? Combining the new Collider app with Leap Motion and the Oculus Rift, you now can.
