John Mulaney is coming back to host 'Saturday Night Live' in March

John Mulaney is bringing his brand of dry, self-effacing humor back to Saturday Night Live.

The gifted comic, who is himself a former SNL writer, last hosted the show in April 2018. He was and is only the third former writer who wasn't also a cast member to get the hosting gig (after Conan O'Brien and Larry David, so pretty good company).

Now he's set to return on March 2, as was confirmed when he tweeted out the show's typical host announcement image from his own Twitter account. Thomas...

LG says it's 'too early' for foldable phones

You may want to just slow your roll for minute with this whole foldable phone thing. 

While electronics giants such as Samsung are reportedly charging ahead to release smartphones that bend as early as this year, at least one major player in the space is taking this opportunity to sit back and see how it all plays out. That would be LG, whose head of mobile Brian Kwon told reporters that the company has decided now is not the right time for LG to release a phone that bends.

Samsung quits making new Blu-ray players

Slowly but surely, spinning discs are dying out, and Samsung just put another nail in their coffin. The company told Forbes that it’s done producing 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray players — and CNET was able to confirm that Samsung is halting production on at least some of its 1080p Blu-ray players as well.

“Samsung will no longer introduce new Blu-ray or 4K Blu-ray player models in the US market,” a Samsung spokesperson told CNET.

Technically, there’s still the possibility that Samsung may...

This guy found a working 30-year-old Apple IIe in his parents' attic, and wow those were simpler times

There are objects in our lives that will forever be tied to childhood: a favorite toy, for example, or the first chapter book that you read and truly connected with. 

For most of us, these items are forever lost — long ago consigned to the dustbin of Goodwill. Not so for Professor John Pfaff, who on Feb. 16 shared with the world a discovery that blasted him straight to his personal past: a working 30-year-old Apple IIe computer. 

"Oh. My. God," he tweeted. "An Apple IIe. Sat in my...

AAF 2019: Game times, TV channels, and live stream info

Peach isn’t dead yet

Social media is increasingly the internet: Facebook was founded in 2004, and it ate the web as we knew it then — a collection of microsites and curiosities run by so many individual proprietors, individually. It used to be that personalization was what you did to your site; now it’s found in the ads you’re served. Peach — the microblogging platform— was seemingly designed against those circumscribed possibilities, as an antidote to the weird world-eating dominion of the Twitters and...

This spider's eyes still glow, even though it died 110 million years ago

Fossil hunters in Korea discovered long-dead spiders preserved in rock. And to the delight of scientists, the arachnids' eyes are still reflective — some 110 million years after the creatures died. 

It's rare for insects and arachnids — which are far more brittle than shelled sea creatures — to become fossilized in rocks. But for reasons still unknown, a couple of these spiders did fossilize, and the unique shape of their eye structures continue to reflect light — even in their...

Hamidou Diallo showed out with an elbow dunk OVER Shaq, and it’s already a shirt

Long live the honey dip!

The honey dip dunk is an all-timer, so if you’re going to bring it out during the NBA Slam Dunk contest, you better add some spice to it.

Uhh, yeah, I think Hamidou Diallo’s twist on it qualifies.
