In 2012, Gatorade released Bolt!, a game for the iPhone that used the fastest man alive to inspire kids to try their best, remain dedicated, and always avoid water. Some people found this problematic—including California’s attorney general. On Thursday, The Gatorade Company agreed to pay a $300,000 settlement for…
We all have them. Our guilty pleasure movies. Movies we like that we don’t like to tell other people. Films that bring us unbridled joy while making others cringe in pain. Films so many people hate but you just, somehow, for whatever reason, love. This is my list.
General Motors was really excited about introducing the all-electric Chevy Bolt earlier this year, being the only major automaker to bring a practical 200 mile range EV rival to Tesla’s Model 3 to market an entire year sooner. The problem with the Bolt is that it won’t be exciting to American buyers.
Boom. I remember hearing that being inside a car when it gets struck by lightning is a pretty safe place to be (as long as you don’t touch anything). Something about the bolt dissipating into the ground (the rubber tires thing is a myth). I’m not so sure about that now because the force of nature striking down on this…
When TiVo and ReplayTV launched in 1998, you had only one other real choice when it came to set top boxes. It was called a VCR. Now there’s Roku, Apple TV, Chromecast, Nexus Player, Fire TV, and all sorts of others. But first, there was TiVo. Now, the company is leveraging that pedigree with Bolt.
This robot is so dumb and goofy but also very, very decent at its very, very simple job: it packs up bolts in such perfect alternating orientation that it would make any factory worker jealous. In fact, with the soundtrack that the video is set to, I almost wish that I will come back as this robot arm in my next life.
It seems Chevy focus-grouped the crap out of Volt owners to come up with their next-generation, all-electric concept, and what people told them they wanted was a crossover that incorporated design elements from the Renault Avantime, Honda CRX, BMW i3 paint, and some Tesla door handles. And it's $30K! Sort of.
LED bulbs are not only long-lasting and energy-efficient, with a clever combination of red, green, and blue diodes they can also be tinted to almost any color letting you set the perfect mood in a room. But color-changing bulbs tend to be expensive, so with its new Bolt, Misfit stripped away unnecessary features to…
Big Hero 6, the manga-inspired animated movie set in the Marvel universe, is due to come out this November — but they're still tinkering with it, apparently. Chris Williams, co-director of Bolt, has come on board as co-director, and they've added a new producer, Ray Conli (Tangled).
Far too many gaming PCs are hulking beasts. They don't call em "towers" for nothing. Digital Storm is trying to fight that chunky, space-stealing trend with its new Bolt PC. Billed as the world's thinnest, Bolt's form is certainly slender, but it doesn't want for more under the hood.
No matter how fancy and complicated we make robots, nature always has us beat. Is there anything more capable, more efficient, and more utterly indestructible than a cockroach? Of course not. Not yet, anyway.
14-yo Sophie Frost was trying to find shelter from a thunder storm when she dropped unconscious and fried like a bag of chips. The culprit: A lightning bolt. Thankfully, this one didn't die thanks to her iPod.
Symbian is the planet's most popular smartphone OS—everywhere except the US, that is. It's also arguably the most boring. In this last, most urgent installment of the cellphone revitalization series, we alleviate your Symbian shame.
The version you see above is for BlackBerry, though functionality should be almost identical between platforms. Like Skyfire of Opera Mini, Bolt performs a good deal of page optimization server-side, meaning that it's fast. In fact, compared to the Bold's stock browser, it's really fast. Rendering accuracy looks about…
