The Nintendo Switch reportedly has a multitouch screen

Watch Apple's MacBook Pro event in nine minutes

Apple's 'Hello Again' event by the numbers

T-Mobile offers unlocked Pixel owners a $325 credit
While Verizon is the only carrier to offer Google's Pixel phones directly, T-Mobile has its own plan to tempt over Pixel owners: $325 credited towards their bill. That's half of the cost of the $650 32GB Pixel, and a significant chunk off of the pric...

We knew it was coming, and now it's here: Apple's newest MacBook Pro. It's thinner, it's lighter and it comes with a better screen than the Pros of yesteryear. But, given how much of the company's presentation was dedicated to it, the showstopper for...
The 15-inch MacBook Pro vs. the competition: More than touch
The larger MacBook Pros have always been about getting serious work done, and now you might be able to do even more thanks to the new Touch Bar. But there are plenty of other 15-inch machines to choose from -- they may not have an OLED touch strip, b...
You'll need a new cable to connect the MacBook Pro and iPhone 7

Awesome Video Links Together Quentin Tarantino's Cinematic Universe
Everybody knows that Quentin Tarantino loves to connect his movies into one cinematic universe. People smoke Red Apple cigarettes, people eat Big Kahuna burgers, Michael Madsen’s Vic Vega from Reservoir Dogs is brothers with John Travolta’s Vincent Vegas from Pulp Fiction, and so on. It’s fun to make those connections while watching any QT movie but this edit by Beyond the Frame that links up all those references to the shared universe is even more fun because you can see it all unfold seamlessly, jumping back and forth from one movie to another.
I Just Stroked the New MacBook Pro's Touch Bar
The first thing I did, when presented with the new Macbook Pro, was reach for that dimly lit display just above the keyboard. The new Touch Bar is the most exciting part of the new MacBook Pro. It’s a Retina strip that sits on top of the keyboard (Retina commonly denotes a super high DPI) and is a replacement for the function keys that have existed on laptops for what feels like forever.
Clinton's Inner Circle: Whoever Told Hillary to Use Private Server Should Be 'Drawn and Quartered'
Here’s the latest gem from the Wikileaks dump of Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta’s private correspondence. According a newly leaked email, one close Clinton ally was so alarmed by the revelation that the former Secretary of State used a private email server, she characterized the situation as “fucking insane.”
Making a Surfboard By Hand Seems Satisfying As Hell
I very much enjoyed watching this surfboard get made by hand because, well, I love watching anything get made by hand. But also, there are neat graphics that pop up and show what’s happening at each step of the process. You get to see an animation of what he’s actually doing to the surfboard and what shape he’s trying to get at—it’s craftsmanship with an explanation.
This Amazing Little Bird Can Fly for Nearly a Year Straight
Bird lovers, let’s hear it for the little guy. Researchers have just discovered evidence that common swifts (a small type of bird) can spend 10 continuous months per year in the air without landing—a world record for sustained flight in nature.

Microsoft Will Pay You Not to Use a MacBook

This Might Be a Fossilized Dinosaur Brain
Thanks to a poor dinosaur who scientists believe fell into a noxious pond after it died, we may have the first known fossilized dinosaur brain on our hands.
These Rumored Star Trek: Discovery Characters Reveal a Lot of New Plot Possibilities
Last night, it was Bryan Fuller would no longer be serving as showrunner for Star Trek: Discovery—an announcement that makes a good deal of sense when you consider the man’s workload. But buried in that news was a little tidbit about the cast that is slightly strange.
Amazon Prime Delays Are Ruining Some Halloween Plans
If you need a last minute costume for Halloween, don’t rely on Amazon Prime shipping to get it in time. Many customers are complaining that when they went to order their Halloween costume, Amazon promised it would be shipped in two days. But when they got the confirmation of their order, it turned out the packages would arrive much later than initially promised.
All The Complaints Volkswagen Owners Had About The $14.7 Billion Dieselgate Settlement
The $14.7 billion Volkswagen Dieselgate settlement received final approval on Tuesday, meaning TDI owners can finally get their money. But not everyone is happy with the settlement, and the courts know this, so they brought in a law professor to answer VW owners’ top complaints.
Apple's New TV App Is Worthless Without Netflix and Amazon Video
Apple just announced a new TV app for Apple TV, and it’s basically going to be useless. The TV app is supposed to keep track of all the shows you watch across apps available on Apple TV, but there’s a huge catch. The TV app will not include Netflix or Amazon Video, two of the most popular subscription video streaming services.
CIA Refuses to Release Reports on Former Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser
Thanks to the Freedom of Information Act, I’ve received CIA biographic reports on both the former Australian Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and the man who controversially ousted him in 1975, John Kerr. But there’s one guy involved in “The Dismissal” that the CIA won’t release files on: former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser, the man who replaced Whitlam.
Marvel's Mockingbird Comic Was So Goddamn Good
You might have heard about Marvel’s Mockingbird series in the news this week—for all the wrong reasons. Its writer, Chelsea Cain, was cruelly harassed off Twitter by “fans” outraged that the series’ final issue featured a cover of Bobbi Morse wearing a shirt emblazoned with the words “Ask me about my Feminist Agenda.”

Vine Was the Only Good Thing on the Internet
I had no idea what Vine was for when it launched. It seemed dumb and arbitrary, an app that would make a six-second video loop. Why video? Why six seconds? And who was even watching?
This Stabilized Footage of a Mountain Bike Ride Is So Dang Buttery Smooth
Stabilizing footage of Steve Storey’s mountain bike ride down a bumpy trail almost turns it into a casual cruise around the park. That is, if you only stare at the top half of the footage. If you look at the bottom half, you’ll see how much thrashing is actually going on. And if you try to look at both at the same time, you’re probably going to get a little bit sick because it looks so impossibly smooth that your brain will crash.
The Best Stuff From Apple's MacBook Pro Event
Today’s Apple event was, uh, shockingly similar to Microsoft’s live event yesterday. Both opened with a montage of each brand’s products helping differently abled users experience the world through technology and then focused almost entirely on a single piece of expensive, touch-sensitive hardware. And what a piece of hardware Apple rolled out.

This Is Our Best Image Yet of ESA's Crashed Mars Lander
NASA’s Mars Reconaissance Orbiter (MRO) has acquired new high-resolution images of the crashed Schiaparelli lander, following its ill-fated attempt to reach the surface of Mars in one piece. The images confirm that the lander had a very hard fall, and raise new questions about the exact nature of the crash.
