Blockchain technology is beginning to take off, as we saw with the 10-second video that sold for $6.6 million at auction. Simultaneously, trading cards have also taken off in certain markets, but it can be difficult to find cards and packs. Combining both ideas, Ubisoft has partnered with the Belgian Pro League to...

It feels great to stick it to the cable (or satellite) company and cut the cord once and for all, rather than continue to pay for bloated TV packages with a handful of channels you actually watch, and a whole bunch more that you don't. That's all well and good, but what if you want to watch Super Bowl LIII? Good news... Read more...
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady is the greatest of all time (GOAT) at his position and it's not up for debate. Haters will hate and I'm fine with that. Deflategate was nothing more than a smear campaign by media outlets desperate for hits (I'm looking at you, ESPN), and a blatant power grab by NFL... Read more...
It looks as though Facebook is doing everything in its power to persuade people to move on over to its Messenger platform.

Maybe your kids or grandchildren will inherit a world where delivery drones are the norm, but for now, the Federal Aviation Administration is keeping a close and cautious eye on these unmanned aircraft. Current restrictions are so tight that the University of Michigan had to cancel plans to have a drone deliver the... Read more...
It's pretty amazing the things you can do with a modern day smartphone. It's possible to check up on e-mail, let your friends know where you're eating dinner, and even make a few phone calls. But you already knew that. What we're really after is the development community, which has put out some rather astounding software over the years. Android... Read more...
3D is here to stay, for a while anyway. And that means that 3D content will slowly but surely arrive to catch up with the 3D hardware that's already out there. Programming is sure to scare for some time, as not many programs are even equipped with the cameras to shoot in 3D, and not all content will be shot in 3D. With HD, everything could... Read more...
If you thought microchips were only good for powering your desktop, netbook and cellphone (and maybe that tracking thing within your pup), you should think again.
