This is quite possibly the best F-15E Strike Eagle video of all time. F-15E cockpit videos are rare to begin with, but one that shows the 'Mud Hen' in its natural, low-level environment in brilliant HD is even rarer . Amazing.Read more...

Despite all the efforts to the contrary, it's an uncomfortable truth that our world mostly still runs on oil, made from dead little creatures and pumped from under the ocean.

But in the case of the Nexus 6, it means that there's a hidden LED notification light, fully functioning, but deactivated and hidden from view by Motorola.Read more...

According to exobiologists at NASA, these mysterious shrimps and its symbiotic bacterium may hold clues "about what life could be like on other planetary bodies."

Like this image of Mount Asgard, a strange double-peak on the Cumberland Peninsula of Baffin Island, Nunavut, Canada. It feels like the actual home of the Nordic Gods.

There might not be anything more awesome than going to space. It's an incredible achievement and the idea of exploring the unknown is fascinating.

I finally got around to seeing Chef, the Jon Favreau film about a chef who joins Twitter and (SPOILER ALERT) starts a food truck. Now food trucks and Twitter go together like Korean BBQ and tacos but in this film the tweet-integration was ridiculously blatant—really, to the point of distraction.
