How to Change Between OS Channels on Your Chromebook

Just like the Chrome browser, Chrome OS offers several channels for you to choose between: stable, beta and development. Each one offers a different mix of new features and stability, so you can access updates earlier if you’re prepared to put up with a few bugs. Here’s how to switch between the available channels on… » 5/27/15 10:00am 11 minutes ago

Why You Crave Tomato Juice on an Airplane

I’m writing this seated on a plane heading to San Francisco. We’ve been in the air for under an hour, and the drink cart is just starting to make its way down the aisle. As the cart rolls nearer I’m forced to decide what drink I’ll be having. Since the cups are miniscule, and the liquid is largely displaced by ice… » 5/27/15 5:00am Today 5:00am

This Outlet Extender Just Made Airport Lounges Slightly More Bearable

Airports around the world are slowly being upgraded to accommodate all the electronics we now travel with, but the process is slow. Finding an available outlet while waiting for a flight is often still a challenge, but with Bluelounge’s new Portiko in your carry-on, you’ll at least never end up sitting on the floor to… » 5/27/15 12:00am Today 12:00am

Snowboarding the clouds is so much cooler than normal snowboarding

If there is no snow to snowboard it only makes sense to hook yourself onto a helicopter and take your snowboarding to the clouds. Watch as stuntman Wildman Adrian Cenni carves on clouds 6,000 feet in the air while the helicopter flings him around at 80mph. It looks so sick. Like a human Silver Surfer or something. » 5/26/15 11:44pm Yesterday 11:44pm

What happens when you pour water on an oil fire in slow motion

Really bad things happen. Though everyone should know this, here’s a lovely slow motion video reminder on what happens when you pour water onto an oil fire in an attempt to put it out: the fire gets even crazier because the water vaporizes into steam which expands causing it to spit out the oil which makes the flames… » 5/26/15 11:07pm Yesterday 11:07pm

Truck boards a ship by wildly driving down two thin wooden planks

This doesn’t seem like the most efficient way to get a car onto a ship but who am I to judge? It’s not like the planks were going to break or the wheels of the car were going to run off the edges or that anything could possibly slip out of position or anything like that could happen, right? » 5/26/15 10:03pm Yesterday 10:03pm

The trailer for the Point Break remake is basically every GoPro video

You know all those GoPro videos you see on the Internet? You know the ones. Where crazy people skydive off planes and fly in wingsuits and snowboard and ride motorcycles and jump off cliffs and live Very Extreme Lives. All of that happens in the trailer for the remake of Point Break. Only they slapped a dark and… » 5/26/15 9:35pm Yesterday 9:35pm

Slow motion footage of double barreled pistols firing bullets is crazy

Watch as we slow down time to see this guy fire off 20 bullets in just 1.5 seconds from two double barreled pistols. It’s a ballistics ballet that looks almost unreal at certain angles. The top down look of the guns firing is especially cool to see, like a first person shooter video game view only in real life. » 5/26/15 8:40pm Yesterday 8:40pm
