  1. Yahoo Getting Rid of All Those Pesky Passwords With New Authentication System

    But what will we do with all of our capital letters and numbers?

    Your extra capital letters, numbers, and special characters may have to find a new home soon, because Yahoo has a new system to get rid of all those annoying passwords. You know, because you totally don't just use the same one for everything. That would be irresponsible.

  2. The Gender Avenger App Lets You Call Out SXSW Panels With No Women

    Sick of seeing panels at conventions and conferences made up entirely of white men? So are the people at online gender discrimination watchdog Gender Avenger, and they've created an app for SXSW that will let you name and shame the panels that didn't bother to give women a voice.

  3. Paul Feig Decries Lack Of Opportunity For Female Directors In Hollywood

    "I have guilt that I'm a man doing these movies."

    Paul Feig is in an interesting position in Hollywood right now: He's pretty much the go-to guy for the director's chair whenever Hollywood wants a female-led blockbuster comedy. Usually one starring Melissa McCarthy, and certainly one that rakes in a whole lotta cash — see: Bridesmaids, The Heat, Spy, Ghostbusters.

  5. Good Guy Samsung Sent Me a New Battery After Giving Me a Crappy One at SXSW

    Hey! A company did a nice thing!

    This isn't sponsored content or an ad. I'm just excited, surprised, and grateful that it happened. After giving me a dud of a battery at SXSW, Samsung mailed me a new one with some extras to make up for it. I complain online when companies screw me, so it's only fair I call one out when they do something great like this.

  6. SXSW Godzilla Footage Shows New “Antagonist”

    Spoilers and all, but we're pretty sure you can guess what that means.

    Among the long list of things we missed out on because we're not at SXSW like our Senior Editor Glen Tickle comes this new revelation: a screening of the original 1954 Godzilla with Gareth Edwards, at which he leaked some new never-before-seen footage from the upcoming 2014 film. Spoilers after the jump.

  7. SXSW Tech Panel Promises That “Wearable Tech” Underwear Is the New Hotness

    We've gotten a lot of junk mail promising the same thing, so we're kind of skeptical.

    Wearable tech products are cool and all, but they're not very sexy. Oh sure, they tried to make a porn with Google Glass, but c'mon. No one watched that. Of course, that hasn't stopped inventors on the SXSW panel "Tech Off Your Clothes: Naked Truths Of Wearables” from trying to fulfill all our smut-filled hopes and dreams with electronic underwear.

    It's probably our favorite SXSW booth because space.

    There's a lot going on at SXSW including this booth by NASA to let tradeshow attendees know that space is still out there. We took a quick look at the booth and learned about how NASA is planning on protecting us all from asteroids.

  9. Neil deGrasse Tyson and Ann Druyen Talk Cosmos and Gravity at SXSW [Video]

    Do we want to be around them or just be them? We can't decide.

    Not everybody gets to be at SXSW right now, and even fewer of us get to hang out with Neil deGrasse Tyson and Cosmos producer Ann Druyen. That's why we're happy we found this set of videos from the Samsung What's Trending SXSW blogger lounge, so we can live vicariously through this lucky audience.

  10. Pack up the Internet, We’re Done Here: Grumpy Cat Sat On the Iron Throne at SXSWesteros

    I usurped the throne once. It was awful.

    I can't decide who I'm more jealous of -- Grumpy Cat for getting to sit on the Iron Throne, or the Iron Throne for getting to meet Grumpy Cat? Either way, we would really like to be at SXSW right now, please.
