What was life really like here on planet Earth before animals were big enough to leave fossils behind? How did living things turn from dinky capsules of genetic material into the intelligent, complex organisms that do things like fart and type curse words into posts on the internet? Scientists think they’ve found the…
Producer Jerry Bruckheimer has been making memorable movies and TV shows for the past few decades. However, with a few exceptions (like Armageddon and the Pirates of the Caribbean films), he’s mostly stayed away from science fiction and fantasy. Now, he’s teaming up with one of his Pirates directors on a scifi film…
Martha Goldman Sigall—the last colorist and inker from the original Looney Tunes who died last week—reveals how Bugs Bunny was born in this short. According to her, it was director Ben "Bugs" Hardaway who came up with it. The clip is a must-watch testimony on the legendary pop culture icon.
Our beloved burgers needed eight centuries to evolve from the raw meat Mongolian soldiers kept under their saddles, to the grilled juicy beauties we enjoy inside a bun nowadays. This excerpt of The History of the Hamburger, a documentary by National Geographic, explains that evolution.
Memes are so damn clever at capturing emotion and feeling that they're pretty much the clearest way to communicate on the Internet. Need to explain your disappointment in something? Throw up that facepalm. And though most pop culture junkies can figure out where most memes and image macros come from, this video shows…
I love watching the streets of SimCity 2013. The cars and people zipping by, streets stretching to the horizon. Look too closely or zoom out too far, and the game's problems are impossible to miss. I'd stay on those streets forever if I could, but there's a review to update.
Ah, July. School's out, the sun is up and the days are long. You know what that means? It's the perfect time to go inside and play video games.
I thought I'd given up being impressed by laptop specs. But then the Origin EON17-Z happened. Good God, you could probably run entire robot armies using this thing.
Origin's been one of the craziest overclocking outfits around for a while now, but its laptops haven't been really, let's say, aesthetically pleasing. Its latest rigs got the Ricky Lake makeover treatment, though, but not at the cost of raw asskicking power: they still clock in at a ridiculous 4.5GHz.
On the hunt for a slick and streamlined monster machine of a laptop? Consider Origin's EON17-S gaming notebook. If its 17.3-inch 1920 x 1080 display, 2GB Nvidia GTX 485M GPU, and 32GB dual-channel RAM doesn't grab you, maybe its 2nd generation Sandy Bridge Intel Core i5/i7 processors will. And if even that doesn't do…
What's in your comic book store this Wednesday? New adventures for Black Panther and Cade Skywalker and reprints of old gems from awesome artists like Moebius, Amanda Conner, and Stan Sakai. It's always comic book Wednesday somewhere.
New 3D laptops and have begun arriving en masse. Are they ready to slay their 2D counterparts?
The ingredients that went into Origin's Big O monster are decidedly prime: six-core Xeon 5680 processor, overclocking up to 4.3GHz, crazy graphics power. And the cherry on top is an integrated, liquid-cooled Xbox 360 slim in every rig. That's nasty.
In the wake of Dell's acquisition of Alienware in 2006, three key execs decided to jump ship. Their mission: to make top-tier gaming PCs the way Alienware used to. The result: a company called Origin, and the Eon18 laptop
The Origin Data Locker: For the paranoid geek who lives with his parents in their fortified underground bunker.
Which sounds more ridiculous? Wolverine being a mutated wolverine, or the result of a bizarre experiment to create a character who would convince Canadian kids that Marvel Comics cared about them? The first almost happened, and the second...? Well, that's how Wolverine really came about.
