Apple's just released a new version of its Apple Watch design video. While that's not newsworthy in itself, it's interesting to note that it's also reduced the screen size of the watch that's on display, too. » 10/01/14 5:30am 23 minutes ago

Murakami turned a Pharrell music video into an anime-style video game

Here's the official music video for Pharrell Williams' latest single "It Girl". It's a visual trip that combines lovely anime and nostalgia inducing 8-bit video games with the always colorful imagination of artist Takashi Murakami.

Short animation: The meaning of life, explained by third graders

Naturally, the funniest lightbulb ad ever stars Jeff fucking Goldblum

Kudos to General Electric for hiring actor Jeff Goldblum and directors Tim and Eric to make this hilarious commercial to promote their new LED lightbulbs. I'm a fan of Philips' LEDs but, after this, I will be checking GE again. Because I'm that easy to convince and it's Jeff fucking Goldblum, ok? » 9/30/14 9:39pm Yesterday 9:39pm

This is probably the most fun you can have jumping on a seesaw

I think we should re-visit the playgrounds of our childhood to see how much fun we can have now. Because if it's anything like these guys from the Streaks Show, it looks like it'll be an insane amount of fun. I mean, they used a seesaw to basically jump flip out of the world of physics and gravity and momentum. » 9/30/14 8:58pm Yesterday 8:58pm

Windows 10 Is What We Deserved All Along

Windows 8 had it rough. It existed for a post-desktop world that (still) hasn't quite materialized, met by a sea of people who weren't asking for something that new and strange.
