However, a new video posted by YouTuber Mark Schey has opened my eyes to just how incredibly cool it can be to have a mini-computer on your wrist.

Only McDonald’s could make a kale salad with more calories than a Double Big Mac

I was initially skeptical when I learned McDonald’s was planning to try making kale a selling point for its meals. But thanks to a new report from CBCNews, I now realized that it was all part of an elaborate ruse for tricking people into thinking something healthy when in reality they’re eating something with more calories, fat and salt than a Double Big Mac. You heard that right: It turns out that McDonald’s kale Caesar salad will pack on more pounds than one of its larger burgers. More →

Man captures video after explosion rips a hole in passenger plane mid-flight

It’s nothing short of astonishing that 64-year-old Vladimir Vodopivec managed to land safely after a mid-air explosion ripped a hole in the fuselage of the Airbus A321 he was piloting on Tuesday. But because he kept his cool amid the chaos, the plane’s 74 passengers and crew all survived to tell the tale, and one man even managed to film video of the interior of the plane as it barreled through the sky with a gaping hole in the side of the cabin.

The ‘Netflix for planes’ offers unlimited air travel for a monthly fee

A new company named OneGo is hoping to do for air travel what Netflix was able to do for movies: Provide an all-encompassing service for a recurring monthly fee. Primarily geared towards business travelers, OneGo offers unlimited travel within the United states via all major U.S. airlines. So in that sense, it’s essentially Netflix for airplanes.

The service truly sounds like great idea, but there are a few wrinkles you should be aware of.

Cable industry lobbyists who represent big names like Comcast and Time Warner Cable are furious right now, which obviously means Washington is cooking something up that stands to benefit consumers rather than help big cable line cable companies’ pockets. Last time lobbyists were this angry, the Federal Communication Commission ended up passing new net neutrality laws. This time around, the FCC may end up tackling one of the biggest scams in pay TV.
