SXSW

  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. Check Out NASA’s SXSW Booth and Learn About Tiny Asteroid-Hunting Satellites

    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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. Dan Harmon Teases Us With Talk Of A Dungeons And Dragons Movie

    Oh, and he knows what to do about Ghostbusters 3 too.

    I get it, SXSW: you're too cool for school, AKA me. But must you pour salt in my blogger wounds by teasing the world with pitches for glorious movie ideas that will likely never come to be?

  8. NASA Wants YOU to Help Detect Asteroids, and They’re Willing to Pay

    Do the Math. Save the world.

    Grab your no. 2 pencils and Texas Instruments! NASA announced today that they will be awarding $35,000 in prizes between now and August to civilians who develop asteroid-detecting algorithms. NASA, I'm flattered that you would ask, but honestly I'd prefer if you had this whole "preventing planetary extinction" thing down already.

  9. You Can Watch Edward Snowden’s SXSW Interview Live Today [Updated With Replay]

    Où sont les Niegedens d'antan?

    Edward Snowden is coming to SXSW today... kind of. The infamous whistle-blower of the NSA will be calling in for an interactive interview (Snowden will field audience questions) with the Texas Tribune, and they'll be streaming it live for everyone to see. Predictably, some people aren't too happy about Snowden's appearance.

  10. Follow Our #SXSW Exploits, Including GE’s Night of Invention As They Happen Right Here!

    If you're at SXSW you could also just follow Glen around, but this is less weird.

    Curious what we're up to at SXSW this year? Senior Editor Glen Tickle (Hey, that's me!) is there and will be live-tweeting from our @Geekosystem Twitter account as well as my own @glentickle for stuff at SXSW that might be a little out of our regular purview.
