11 things to do with your old headphones now that Apple has ruined your life

It was hard to swallow at first, but now that the iPhone 7 has officially launched, it’s time to come to terms with the fact that the 3.5mm headphone jack is dead. How will you ever survive?!

If you want to listen to music on your iPhone 7 or iPhone 7 Plus, you’ll either need Lightning or Bluetooth headphones, both of which Apple will be happy to sell you. But what are you supposed to do with your old, wired headphones?

How to get the iPhone 7’s biggest feature without needing to upgrade

How to get the iPhone 7’s biggest feature without needing to upgrade

There’s no need to spend $649 to get all the functionality of Apple’s latest iPhone. Thanks to this clever hack, you can have all the benefits of the iPhone 7 with just a tenth of the wallet hit.

Removing the headphone jack was, without a doubt, the most innovative move from Apple today. Forget the dual-lens camera, the ridiculously fast processor or waterproofing: the best new feature is vanishing the headphone jack. By removing that and replacing it with two expensive Bluetooth earbuds, Apple has forever removed the problem of having to plug in your headphones, listening to music for more than five hours at a time, or being happy.

This guy crushed dynamite with a hydraulic press, and you’ll absolutely believe what happened next

Unlikely internet celebrity Lauri Vuohensilta is the Finnish genius behind Hydraulic Press Channel, a YouTube channel that does…well, you can probably guess.

Vuohensilta made his name crushing such mundane items as red-hot nickel balls and rubber ducks, but he’s finding ways to keep things interesting months later. Yes, those ways do involve dynamite.

Dolphin iPad Snatch

Dolphin teaches human that iPad pictures are dumb

Dolphin teaches human that iPad pictures are dumb

The iPad has a camera, but that doesn’t mean you should take it places and use it like a camera. In fact, if you do that, you are an objectively awful human being. But don’t just take my word for it: this dolphin, a member of another highly intelligent species, clearly agrees.

This golden moment was captured on film at SeaWorld Orlando, made infamous by 2013 documentary Blackfish. Fox 11 has the full clip, captured by SeaWorld season pass holder (yep, that’s a thing!)  Kuadiel Gomez.

The funniest thing you’ll see today: Elderly people react to the HTC Vive

Although it hasn’t quite taken off like many pundits and enthusiasts expected it too, there’s no question that the era of virtual reality has begun. Both the Oculus Rift and the HTC Vive have made their way to thousands of homes around the world, and Sony’s PlayStation VR is just a few months away.

VR has definitely arrived, but that doesn’t mean that everyone is ready for it.

Trump Garbage Wall Speech

The internet completely lost it over Trump’s ‘garbage wall’ speech last night

The internet completely lost it over Trump’s ‘garbage wall’ speech last night

By on June 29, 2016 at 8:20 AM.

Trump is easily the most polarizing presidential candidate the country has seen in years. Decades, even. Perhaps ever. People either love him to the point that each new inaccuracy fact-checked by the media only makes their allegiance more staunch, or they hate him to the point where they can’t even recognize that much of his schtick is well calculated.

But regardless of which camp you fall in, you have to appreciate the internet’s collective response to Trump’s speech on Tuesday night, which was delivered in front of a giant wall of garbage. More →

Watch a tiny SpaceX rocket land in a backyard pool

No, Elon Musk isn’t on a serious budget. This is one very dedicated fan’s re-enactment of SpaceX landing its Falcon 9 rockets, using a very small quadrotor version of the Falcon 9, a backyard pool, and an unmanned drone barge.

SpaceX has previously described trying to land its rocket as like vaulting a pencil over the Empire State Building, and even at smaller scale, it’s clear how difficult the trick is.

The hilarious cat myth story the internet is buzzing about

Meryl Streep Donald Trump Cosplay

Meryl Streep should win an Oscar for best Donald Trump impersonation

Meryl Streep should win an Oscar for best Donald Trump impersonation

Whether you love the guy or you hate him, Donald Trump has certainly made an impression on people across the country and the world. Using unorthodox tactics, Trump managed to become the presumptive Republican nominee for this year’s presidential election. In the process, he annoyed many people with his vitriolic attacks while simultaneously raising immense support from other voters. At the same time, the things Trump says and does also happen to be a goldmine for comedians and other celebrities, who make fun of the billionaire every chance they get. Even Barack Obama got in on the action.

But Meryl Streep probably takes the cake when it comes to impersonating Trump – just look at the pictures below. She just set the bar for the best Donald Trump cosplay to date. More →
