If you grew up with an older brother or sister and an old school video game console, Zachary Antell’s short animation Player Two should hit you right in the nostalgic feeling bank. Some people call that a heart, and maybe make you want to pick up the phone to call him or her (or let’s be honest, shoot a text to them).
The much-heralded DC Comics: Rebirth comes out today, marking the beginning of a yet another new era for the publisher. Can it fix the malaise that’s been plaguing the DC Universe for years? Or will it make things worse?

US border agents near Nogales, AZ were busy this past weekend. In five busts, they confiscated a buffet of hard drugs inbound from Mexico. The haul is valued at a combined $928,000. The best part of the whole thing was this pair of meth burritos.
If you’ve ever found yourself crammed into a packed subway car, right up against another rider’s backpack, you’ve probably realized just how easy it could be to sneak open a pocket and swipe something.

Everything that’s good, and bad, about X-Men: Apocalypse can be traced to it being part of the successful X-Men franchise. It’s not only the third film in the series (in the new movie continuity), but also the sixth (overall), and also the ninth (if you count solo movies) which creates certain…
Tim Cook is many things: executive businessman, native Alabaman, multi-millionaire. Unfortunately, we can’t all be everything, and Tim recently revealed two things that he is most definitely not: an art historian and someone who makes good jokes.
It seems counterintuitive, right? Rip out eight lanes of freeway through the middle of your metropolis and you’ll be rewarded with not only less traffic, but safer, more efficient cities? But it’s true, and it’s happening in places all over the world.
The same soap bubbles that fascinated you as a toddler can be just as engaging when you’re all grown up. They just need to be super-sized, filmed in glorious 4K, and then manipulated in post-production with a mirror effect that turns them into undulating alien-like blobs. Cue up some Led Zeppelin and let your mind go…

If you live in British Columbia, don’t try to sneak out a quick text while driving just because you don’t see any cops on the road. The RCMP., Canada’s version of the FBI, have started using DLSR cameras attached to massive scopes to spot distracted drivers from as far as three-quarters-of-a-mile away.
We’ve heard a lot about how stuffing cows full of antibiotics is accelerating the superbug apocalypse. That alone should convince us to stop, but if you needed more evidence, here’s another dirty secret: antibiotics could be making cows gassier and boosting their contribution to global warming.
Over the past three years, we’ve tested over a dozen sous vide setups to find the best for your kitchen. We like the Anova Precision Cooker (Wi-Fi Edition) the best because it’s reliable, works with almost any container, and has a decent app that you will actually want to use. If you don’t need the range of Wi-Fi,…
Mark’s Zuckerberg’s plans for world domination are well underway...and they might include his own backyard.
