How Long Will It Be Until You Can Get an Anti-Aging Pill?

Last month a team of doctors and scientists made the case to regulators at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to consider approving anti-aging drugs as a new pharmaceutical class. Such a designation would treat aging as disease rather than a natural process, potentially opening the door to government funding for… » 7/29/15 3:30am 9 minutes ago

Settings Are Better in Windows 10, But That's Not Saying Much

Computer settings in Windows 8 were a hot mess: they were split between PC Settings and Control Panel, two completely separate ways to change most settings, but with enough differences that you had to use both. Windows 10 makes things better, but I still wouldn’t give the engineers a gold star. » 7/28/15 11:15pm Yesterday 11:15pm

Windows 10, Day Five

The nice thing about reviewing Windows 10 on my own computers is that there’s nowhere to hide. When something goes wrong, I have to troubleshoot on the fly. I can’t say “Oh, I’ll just go back to my personal computer until I figure this out.” You know what’s not so nice? When you shoot the trouble, and yet—somehow—it… » 7/28/15 10:17pm Yesterday 10:17pm

This duck burger topped with duck confit is a delicious tongue punch

Duck is delicious. Fatty and rich and more flavorful and tongue punchy than chicken in every single way that I’m drooling over this duck burger topped with duck confit, pickled red cabbage, gruyere cheese and drizzled in hoisin sauce. It’s like if America and Asia and France teamed up to make a burger without beef. » 7/28/15 8:41pm Yesterday 8:41pm

Why Pluto Lacks Craters, and Why That's So Freakishly Weird

Pluto has been puzzling us with its weirdly smooth surface, but if it’s the first Kuiper Belt Object we’ve visited, how did we know how many craters to expect in the first place? Here’s everything we’ve figured out about collisions in this chaotic area of our Solar System. » 7/28/15 8:32pm Yesterday 8:32pm

This handmade Futurama title sequence is so much fun

We’ve seen the Futurama intro done up in stunning photorealistic 3D before. And we’ve seen the normal animation sequence before the TV show so many times. Now here’s an old video of the intro being recreated with hand made cutouts. All the images were drawn and props were put together to re-make the original and it’s… » 7/28/15 8:20pm Yesterday 8:20pm

Here's more awesome footage of the Lexus hoverboard

That Lexus hoverboard that we all got collectively giddy about until we realized we could probably never afford one (if they were ever going to actually build more than one) is going to be shown off in full on August 5th. Lexus is saying that it’ll be revealing everything about the project then, which cool, we’ll see… » 7/28/15 8:00pm Yesterday 8:00pm

Your Guide To Island Hopping The Philippines

I just spent two weeks in the Philippines, a place The Department of State deems dangerous and warns that “U.S. citizens should continue to exercise extreme caution if traveling to certain regions and cities.” Here’s why it wasn’t scary, and why you should plan to island-hop as soon as possible!

There's Still A Giant Pile of Unmelted Snow In the Middle of Buffalo 

We’d been tracking the slow demise of Boston’s Tide Street pile: A glacier of trash and black snow that served as a reminder of the worst winter in recent memory. Sadly Boston’s snow melted last week, RIP. But there’s a rival pile in Buffalo that’s just as big, nasty, and, yes, still frozen. » 7/28/15 7:15pm Yesterday 7:15pm
