The hopes and headaches of Snapchat’s glasses

 Snapchat is the only company cool enough to possibly dismantle the Google Glass stigma. Awkward, useless, and a threat to privacy are how many think of computers you wear on your face. Can Snapchat show off the masterful marketing and smooth execution required to produce a product that won’t die on stores shelves or in a desk drawer? To quickly recount the basics, a video of… Read More

We’re looking at cyberbullying the wrong way

 A bully is a bully and a troll is a troll, no matter where you go online. For as long as online mass communication has existed, online bullying has existed. To effectively address the issue of cyberbullying, one must not only question the environments that yield such behaviors, but examine how and why the behavior exists in the first place. Read More

Congratulations to Ole Miss for holding onto a huge lead this time and beating UGA

The Rebels got up by three touchdowns ... and won!

How does a game seem more precarious at 31-0 than it is at 0-0? Well, this is how.

Ole Miss is the FIRST Power 5 team in the last 10 years to blow two 21-point leads in the same season, per ESPN research.

This is Ole Miss in 2016, where blowing leads has become the unfortunate norm. When the Rebels started blowing the stinkin’ doors off Georgia early some worry crept in; could this be...

Everyone wondered whether Wisconsin could handle this schedule. It sure looks like they can.

Wisconsin has one of the toughest schedules in football. Luckily, they’re not so bad.

We’ve made some jokes at the expense of the Big Ten’s worst division. With Ohio State, Michigan, and Michigan State all in the East, we wondered who would win the weak West — Western Michigan? North Dakota State? Surely, it wouldn’t be Wisconsin, who drew a hellish hand by facing all three of the East’s best teams back-to-back-to-back in randomly selected crossover games. Right?

Well, Wisconsin...

What the heck is this thing a Florida player tore off of a Tennessee player?

Florida’s Quincy Wilson guaranteed the Gators would continue their decade-long win streak against Tennessee, saying "nobody has ever seen a duck pull a truck." He didn’t just talk off the field: He also got into a skirmish with a Vol on the field.

That earned him an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty. But, more importantly, what exactly did he rip off his opponent and toss in the air?

It’s probably a piece of the Tennessee player’s shoulder pad. But for that to be true, that means the...

Here's how Snapchat's new Spectacles will work

The company formerly known as Snapchat surprised the world last night by unveiling Spectacles, its first hardware product. The sunglasses, which record videos in 10-second increments, are expected to be available for sale sometime "soon." Snap Inc., as the company is now called, says it will be producing the glasses in small quantities. There are still lots of questions about how Spectacles will work — but thanks to some new information from the company, we can now answer some basic...

Bruce Springsteen on Donald Trump: 'The republic is under siege by a moron'

In previous presidential elections, Bruce Springsteen was not shy about sharing his views. 

The musician penned a New York Times op-ed in August 2004 detailing why he'd be voting for John Kerry that November, and in 2012 he voiced his support for President Barack Obama. Now, with the 2016 election nearly upon us, he opened up to Rolling Stone about his thoughts on the current political climate.

'I felt like it was my family': The stories behind the protesters

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina — They came because they wanted to march with their city. They came because they were too outraged not to. They came from Charlotte, or they came from elsewhere. 

Demonstrators protesting Tuesday's fatal police shooting of a black man named Keith Scott in Charlotte had many reasons for marching through the Queen City's streets well past sundown.

Here's how much Snapchat's glasses will cost

After months of rumors, we now know the Snapchat glasses are real. 

The company has officially introduced Spectacles, its Snapchat-connected wearable, that is set to go on sale later this year. The good news for Snapchat fans, though, is that the glasses will be surprisingly affordable.

SEE ALSO: Snapchat is just 'Snap' now

Snap Inc., the Snapchat-maker's new name, hasn't said exactly when Spectacles will go on sale but we know they will be priced at $129.99. 

While that's still a decent...

Messaging app Telegram adds selfie masks, DIY GIFs

 With what looks to be an eye on Snapchat’s selfie-loving fanbase, messaging platform Telegram has beefed up its in-app photo editor in what it dubs an “entertainment-heavy update” — including an option that lets users customize selfies by adding cartoon masks that automatically align on their faces.

Taking a swing for the Grammys with the new Lip Sync Battle app

 The art of the lip sync has had a profound impact on the state of our…ok no, but dammit is lip synching fun. For those of you locked in a Faraday cage, pretending to sing has become all the rage these days. You have Michelle Obama doing it for Carpool Karaoke, Tim Cook using it to open up events, and of course the ever entertaining LL Cool J and Chrissy Teigen using it as a platform… Read More

This Wisconsin defender was a high school RB, as you can tell by this sick spin move

He’s still got it.

With his team already leading 13-6, Wisconsin’s Leo Musso added insult to injury by weaponizing the spin move on his way to a 66-yard fumble recovery for a TD.

Musso’s moves are hardly a surprise. He rushed for over 5,500 yards and had nearly 100 TDs in high school. Not only is it the spin here, but it’s the shove of Michigan State QB Tyler O’Connor that really does it here.

UGA head coach Kirby Smart looks like a Checkers manager

Or Rally’s. Same thing. A burger joint manager, is the point.

SEC Network and “Undercover Boss”

In a recent episode of Shutdown Fullback, the internet’s worst college football podcast (subscribe today), my co-host Spencer Hall described Georgia head coach Kirby Smart as bearing the appearance of a Rally’s manager. As you can see from this visualization, it holds incredibly true.

(Rally’s and Checkers are the same thing, so the above image works.)

When Victor Oladipo can't sleep he calls Russell Westbrook to sing to him

No, this is not a weird car insurance commercial.

The Thunder's new backcourt is close. So close that sometimes, when Victor Oladipo has trouble falling asleep, he turns to his teammate for help.

Oladipo on Russell Westbrook singing to him: "Some days at night I can't sleep, and I just call him, and he sings me to sleep."

Before you speculate wildly about the songs Russell Westbrook might sing, look to some of his past favorites. He's posted...

Michigan’s best player is casually catching punts with one arm behind his back

Look, ma, one hand. #CampusRush pic.twitter.com/LQy8R7Bt47

Jabrill Peppers is a bad, bad man. In three games he’s amassed 25 tackles and registered 2.5 sacks. Now he’s prepping for Saturday’s game vs. Penn State by casually catching punts with one arm behind his back.

This isn’t exactly a show of skill, it’s a show of swag. Catching a football one-handed isn’t a specifically difficult task — especially on a punt — but it takes...

Premier League scores, Week 6: Raheem Sterling is so much fun right now

There were goals all over the place in the Premier League this week, and our favorite was scored by Manchester City and England's revitalized young star.

The Premier League delivered plenty of action on Saturday, with teams producing 29 goals between them in eight games. No games were scoreless, only one had just one goal, and only one more had just two. A lot of the goals were outstanding too, but we'd like to talk about one in particular: Raheem Sterling's.

It’s getting harder to use the iPhone without using TouchID

Ever since I upgraded to iOS 10, it’s become a lot harder to unlock my phone. Before the upgrade, it was a simple swipe and passcode — a gesture I’ve done so many times that it’s burned into my muscle memory — but iOS 10 retakes that space for a new info panel. Now, I need to hit the home button and wait for a good half-second while my phone figures out i’m not submitting a fingerprint or calling up Siri. Then the keypad appears and I can tap in the code as usual. A half second...

5 times you shouldn't use a credit card

A credit card used responsibly can be a great tool to build your credit score and a credit history.

If you pay off your bill in full every month and balance your budget like a pro, using a credit card for most expenses allows you to track your spending easily and take full advantage of cash-back and other rewards programs.

But if you don’t pay off the bill each month, the high interest rates on a card will cost you as your debt keeps rolling over. That’s when you should consider cheaper...
