  1. The Tesla Motors $35,000 Model 3 Might Just Be the Electric Car You’ve Been Waiting For

    Anyone have $35,000 I can borrow? It's for the environment.

    Electric cars are great and all, but most of them suffer from short ranges and long charging time or a high price tag. Well, Tesla's $35,000 Model 3 is going to change all of that with a car that offers the long travel ranges Tesla is known for without their equally high prices.

  2. It’s Your Last Day to Yell at the FCC About Net Neutrality. Make It Count, Trolls

    This is what you've been training for, YouTube commenters.

    The FCC's proposed rules to govern Net Neutrality (and basically ruin it) have been awaiting public comments for further action, and today is the last day of that public comment period. If you want to help make sure that the Internet remains a level playing field for everyone's traffic, tell the FCC how important it is to you before it's too late—if their site doesn't crash again, that is.

  5. Take a Tour of Adam Savage’s Pop Culture-Packed Workshop In Google Street View

    It's the best episode of Hoarders ever!

    First off, can we all agree that the phrase "Man Cave" is generally kind of dumb? That said, I'm willing to let Adam Savage call his studio in San Francisco whatever the hell he wants, because it is every nerd's dream. Now with the help of Google Street View, you get to see every nook and cranny for yourself.

  6. DARPA Contracts Brain Implant to Record and Restore Memories

    Let's hope it carries more than 80 gigs.

    Prospective data spies, your future is fast approaching: DARPA has contracted Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (LNLL) to develop an brain implant that can record and stimulate neurons to restore memory. Its primary use will be the treatment of patients suffering from various memory loss conditions that currently lack a cure, but I'm sure The Final Cut and Johnny Mnemonic aren't too far off now.

  8. “MacGyver” Robots Use Their Environment to Solve Problems, Lack Mullets

    This is the perfect setup for a MacGyver reboot, Hollywood. Just saying.

    MacGyver was ahead of his time. So ahead, in fact, that robots of the future are being built based on him. Kind of. A video submission was made to the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation with the title "Robots Using Environment Objects as Tools: The ‘MacGyver’ Paradigm for Mobile Manipulation." If you'll excuse me, I have to write a treatment for a MacGyver vs. Mecha-MacGyver script.

  9. The Academic Journal That Published The Facebook Experiment Is Having Second Thoughts

    "Did we do that?"

    So remember that psychology experiment Facebook did recently, and the resulting academic paper they wrote and submitted to a reputable scientific journal? And remember how they didn't actually tell anybody they were doing it and how that sort of made some people mad and possibly even litigious?
