Rather than signing up with Apple Pay, a number of Australia's largest banks are instead hoping to force Apple's hand and put their own payment apps on Apple's hardware.

On Wednesday, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) published an application from four local banks to negotiate collectively with providers of third-party mobile wallets.

Adobe is working on realistic 3D digital paint

Artists have been using tablets to make 2D art for years now, and recently, the proliferation of VR headsets and software like Google's Tilt Brush have also allowed them to paint in 3D space. But while both approaches can produce some beautiful art, neither offers the kind of tactile feedback you can get with a brush and some paint on a real-world canvas. That's what Adobe Research's Project Wetbrush hopes to change. Nvidia, who partnered with Adobe to produce the software, describe it as...

Blue Jays win in mad scramble on walk-off wild pitch

A walk-off hit is among the most exciting plays in baseball. A walk-off wild pitch might be even better. That's exactly what the Blue Jays did on Tuesday.

Your browser does not support iframes.

Game-ending plays at the plate are awesome, but there is something about this and the set up that make it so much fun. There was no crack of the bat to send the crowd into a frenzy. Instead, it was just great base running by Devon Travis. The batter, Edwin Encarnacion, initially signaled for Travis to...

DeMar DeRozan's missed 360 poster dunk might be the greatest missed dunk ever

It's absurd that DeMar DeRozan would even try this dunk in a game. If he had completed this ... this dunk could have been the best in-game dunk of all time. I will spend forever wishing this was real. That DeMar DeRozan had disrespectfully put a 360 poster on someone.

LeBron agrees so you know it's real.

Man if @DeMar_DeRozan would have made that dunk, would have been top 5 All Time! #USABMNT
