The Steam Machine concept — a fusion of consoles and gaming PCs, running Valve's own OS — was huge news in 2013 and early 2014, then dropped almost completely off the map, as it became clear that the strange, slightly yonic controller needed a redesign and manufacturers could just release their products as traditional gaming PCs. A year later, though, we've got a new game plan, a final controller design, and a virtual reality headset made in partnership with HTC. It builds on years worth of virtual reality research, focusing specifically on creating an experience that's ambulatory and interactive. It's paired with laser base stations that can track both your location in a room and the rough dimensions in it, warning you if you get too close to a wall.

The Ferrari 488 GTB is predictable. It's a flowing, organic, aerodynamic shape that seems to have been hewn from some scarlet-red meteor landed near Maranello. Succeeding the Ferrari 458, this new car comes with a brand new 3.9-liter V8 engine, which is augmented with two turbochargers and mounted in the middle of the chassis, beneath a pretty little window. It has more power and torque than any sane human being could ever need, but Ferrari's made even bigger improvements in aerodynamics.

Dish’s Sling TV package for cord cutters was already very tempting and now the company has just sweetened the pot once again. Per Engadget, Sling TV this week has added both AMC and IFC to its service that lets you stream several different cable channels online for $20 a month. The bad news is that right now the service is only letting you stream shows on these channels as they air but it promises that on-demand streaming will be coming soon. Together, the two channels offer critical favorites such as Mad Men, Better Call Saul and Portlandia, so their additions really do make the Sling TV package more compelling.

Something was clearly amiss with Marvel Studios' new Avengers: Age of Ultron YouTube trailer, almost to the point of being unwatchable. It seems there was a bizarre stabilization filter on that's warping every frame — and causing the black bars to bounce around like crazy throughout the clip. (Update: It's fixed now, thankfully — all verb tenses updated from present to past).
