No matter what this list reveals, please know that mosquitos are the worst bug. Nothing fills me with a stronger desire to kill than seeing an entitled-ass mosquito flying around, likely high off of the blood and pain of an innocent passerby. They’re tiny and quiet and often hard to notice until after they’ve already…
You haven’t seen bad pixelated cleavage until you start looking around the off-brand junk drawer world of unauthorized Kardashian apps.
The past was awful. It was a time of choleric ignoramuses flopping around in their own shit and killing each other for entertainment. I feel bad for everyone who lived before today.
Here are some ways to communicate the general concept of “yes.” They all mean the same thing. Except they don’t all mean the same thing, especially when you get one in passive aggressive slack chat from one of your coworkers. They mean different things even though they all technically mean the same thing. Crazy.
Politicians love to shake hands with their constituents. It's basically half their job. But over the past two decades we've seen the rise of a surprising new constituency that they need to engage with a firm handshake: Robots.
If you believe fiction, spies are everywhere. You cannot turn around without bumping into someone in a wig, armed with a gun masquerading as a tasteful pair of earrings, and carrying secret plans in microdot form. There are so many, we decided to rank them.
We're just hours away from 2015. What will the mysterious future hold? Fortunately there are a number of films set in this far-flung future year to tell us what's coming. These are their visions of (literally) tomorrow, ranked in order of desirability.
Apple recently debuted one of its first in-house fonts in nearly 20 years. The tech company's most frequently-used typefaces now are Myriad, Lucida Grande, Avenir, and Helvetica Neu, all brought in from third parties. But in its early days, graphic designers like Susan Kare helped Apple stand apart from competitors by…
Holiday travel is hell. Combine early winter weather with hoards of angry passengers rushing for their childhood twin beds, and delays are pretty much a given. So how long will you yourself get to spend sightseeing around a crowded airport terminal? Depends on who you fly.
In today's flooded app market, it's hard for developers to get an idea noticed, and even harder to get it to stick. Needless to say celebrity cred goes a long way, and so has birthed an unlikely partnership between Hollywood stars and software programmers.
There are all kinds of different utopian visions in the world. But which ones are the best? Today we have the definitive (and comprehensive) list of utopias ranked from least amazing to most amazing.
How do you define quality? Is it the number of people who've downloaded a fart app, or the number of positive reviews it's had? Apple's said to be changing the way it organizes its app rankings, with a greater emphasis on people who are actually using and loving the app. It makes sense; I'm only surprised it's taken…
Kudos to Verizon for snagging the coveted J.D. Power award for best call quality. The award confirms what many former AT&T customers have probably known for some time now. J.D. Power's testing was done between July and December and found Verizon to have the best/tied for the best scores in categories like customer…
Starting early next year, the venerable NY Times is going to include ebooks in its weekly literary sales ratings. Taking their place alongside paperbacks and hardcovers, ebooks will be ranked based on a system that it took the Grey Lady two years to perfect:
Google just released a list of the top 1000 websites in the world, something they're uniquely suited to rank, since most traffic funnels through them first. Google left themselves off (they'd be #1), so Facebook and Yahoo are close together at 1 and 2. To save you time, we're at 540, edging out Pandora, Intel, that…
