    This is a presentation from E3 of Microsoft showing off a holographic interface to Minecraft. Apparently the technology allows you to play on any flat surface. It definitely looks like the future, and if it actually comes to market and plays even half this decent I guarantee ... / Continue →

    This is a parody video created by the folks at Rooster Teeth imagining if Microsoft's Bing developed a self-driving car. It was cute enough for a watch. I liked the last minute. The last minute is always the best. Take sex for example. You can't argue with that. Keep goin... / Continue →

    This is a video from 2011 of Neil DeGrasse Tyson trying to explain just how rich Bill Gates is. SPOILER: rich as f***. AND HE GIVES HIS MONEY AWAY. Most people raid the 'Give A Penny, Take A Penny' dish whenever the cashier's back is turned. Also, back in 2011 Gates' fortun... / Continue →

    In news that's sure to set the computing world ablaze (or not at all), Bill Gates has confessed that the control-alt-delete keyboard combination was a mistake and the fault of a keyboard designer who refused to add a one-button equivalent. How enthralling! If I was any more ... / Continue →

    This is a very brief history of operating system scroll bars. It's not inclusive though, because I don't even see the one I'm using on there. Regardless, they've really come a long way, haven't they? SPOILER: Nope. Thanks to Deacon, who, based on his email, is apparently VE... / Continue →

    Because your mom won't understand what's happening unless there's an emoticon to relay appropriate emotional information, the new Window's 8 blue screen of death features a lil frowny face and generic message about the operating system shitting the bed. "Oh, oh no -- a frowny.... / Continue →
