Carson Wentz and the Eagles were incredible on a day when most of the NFL was not

The Cardinals, Panthers, and Steelers reminded us that the teams we think are great can look terrible at any time.

The Pittsburgh Steelers were great until they ran into Carson Wentz and the Philadelphia Eagles. Through two weeks, the offense looked like it could be the NFL’s best. The defense gave up just 16 points in each of its first two wins, holding seasoned and occasionally good quarterbacks Kirk Cousins and Andy Dalton to a combined 79.2 passer rating. They were maybe — maybe —...

Intel’s office of the future is a micromanaging monster

Intel is building an ambitious new office building in Israel’s Petah Tikva, which will house 2,500 employees and serve as a showcase for the chipmaker’s latest IoT technologies. Judging by the promo video from Intel, the building will also be a horrible nag that micromanages employees’ sleep, work commute, exercise, and even what they have for lunch. It’s a bureaucrat’s dream and a regular human’s nightmare.

In classic dystopian survellance fashion, Intel's future ultra-smart...

Roku's new $30 Express box is the cheapest Roku yet

Roku today announced a whole bunch of new streaming media boxes, effectively replacing its existing hardware lineup. While the top-of-the-line, $130 Roku Ultra will appeal to early adopters who want both 4K and HDR video support, Roku's "cheap" box may just pique more interest.

The new Roku Express box, which replaces the old Roku 1, is a tiny streaming video box with double the processing power of the original box — and costs just $30. That puts it right in line with Google Chromecast...

Stan Bush wrote an amazing new ‘80s anthem for Shadow Warrior 2

The title song for the upcoming action game Shadow Warrior 2 sounds like it’s 30 years old, and with good reason: it was written and performed by the same team behind “The Touch,” the iconic anthem from the original 1986 Transformers animated film. It may be coming out a few decades later, but the new song, called “Warrior,” has the exact same upbeat, boost-your-confidence vibe. “I’ve always been one of those people who believes that we make our own reality,” says singer and...

Plex Cloud means saying goodbye to the always-on PC

Plex is giving the world another reason to subscribe to Plex Pass subscriptions today with the launch of Plex Cloud.

But you won't be laughing when this classic Boy Who Cried Wolf-like scenario ends just as tragically as that story did.
