Last month, Beats by Dre headphones went in for a thorough slagging across the internet, and on this here blog, on the basis of a teardown of the flashy cans. The exercise, conducted by a venture capital outfit called Bolt that focuses on hardware startups, seemed to prove that the headphones were a sham. It turns out…
As an American living in Canada, there’s one Chrome extension I cherish more than any other: Hola Unblocker, a free VPN designed to help people abroad watch American Netflix, and other streaming US media. Unfortunately, it turns out Hola is up to some dubious business practices, ones that could put its users at risk.

It happened this Monday in Hoquiam, Washington: A landslide caused by the heavy rain now affecting the region—which "has prompted the National Weather Service to issue a flood watch for much of Western Washington"—knocked an entire house off its foundation, moving it several feet towards the street.
I have some kind of innate deep fear/repulsion against birds and especially flocks. Watching this massive group of little winged velociraptors taking off some kind of poplar tree—there are so many that the tree is deformed by their weight—is my idea of hell.
I've seen many photos and videos of smokers' lungs—all of them disgusting—but I've never seen a better case against cigarettes than this Vine showing the differences in lung capacity between a smoker and a nonsmoker.
Tech companies have a pretty awful track record where talking to women is concerned. But after running damage control on horrible campaign after horrible campaign, you'd think they'd try to avoid making the same mistakes again. And you would be wrong.

The stone fish is the most poisonous fish in the sea and one of the most dangerous in the world. It can easily kill you if you step on it, injecting its venom deep inside your foot. If not treated promptly, the poison will kill you. This video by SmarterEveryDay shows how this simple killing machine works.
In an apparent attempt to get people more interested in protected sex, Condomania Harajuku recently released a series of ads showing live human beings stuffed into vacuum-packed bags. "Preserve the love," the ads read. "Wear a condom." The effect is startling.
The internet is buzzing right now with the latest, greatest (and potentially fake) Worst Thing Ever. Meet Code Babes, the stripping amalgam of everything that's wrong with tech culture today.
Someone put a camera on the collar of his cat to see his antics out of the house. The camera captured a cat fight seen from the perspective of one of the cats. Apparently, the owner says, his furry overlord is quite the block bully.
National Geographic's Your Shot member John Goodman took this beautiful—and terrible—image north of Manhattan Beach in Los Angeles, California: "A lone surfer returns from the sea, bathed in the sodium light of an onshore industrial site." Two ways to understand Earth clashing in one perfect image.
Seriously, why the hell would anyone want to kiss a cobra snake?* The GIF grosses me out, but the video is even worse. That's when he actually opens his mouth. Ugh.
We've seen countless action movies in which daring heroes get their gaping wounds sealed with white hot metal, but we rarely get a peek at what happens after the fact. This video from The Medicine Journal explains how it really works.
No matter how far technology might advance, there's always been one little area that the reigning powers-that-be have never quite managed to figure out. Or more specifically, an area they've never quite figured out how to talk to. Tech companies, meet women. And then stop treating them like idiots.
What's the only thing more exciting than a new Core i7 MacBook Air at your local Apple Store? No, not the Genius Bar helping you out with a cracked iPhone screen—a ranting, pot-smoking lunatic crashing a Q&A. Naked.
Following through on what probably started as an epic round of double dog daring, four major studios—Warner Bros., Sony, Universal and 20th Century Fox—have agreed that charging $30 for streaming movie rentals is a pretty great business model.
