    30 July 2014, 12:23 pm by: Jacob Kastrenakes

    Quentin Tarantino's The Hateful Eight is back on. After saying that he would cancel the project earlier this year after its script leaked online, Tarantino has slowly begun hinting that he was coming back around to it, and others involved in the project have…
  • Lytro Illum review: this is the camera of the future

    30 July 2014, 12:00 pm by: David Pierce

    Ten minutes into using the Lytro Illum, I’m throwing out everything I’ve ever learned about photography. Taking great photos with this camera has a different set of rules, a different guiding principle. Forget the rule of thirds; shoot for depth. Frame…
  • Life after a face transplant

    30 July 2014, 11:33 am by: Jacob Kastrenakes

    Over the past decade, face transplants have started returning normality to the lives of people who have been severely disfigured, but even now the surgery still holds a great number of severe risks — including death. Looking at the current state of the…
  • My favorite thing on Twitter is a stream of fire and crime

    30 July 2014, 11:30 am by: Russell Brandom

    I was at a birthday party when I heard about the fire. I wanted to leave but my girlfriend was still dancing, so I went to wait outside in a cul-de-sac courtyard on the back side of the building. The courtyard was full of people smoking or just talking, sound…
  • Groupon's ousted founder is making gorgeous audio tours of San Francisco

    30 July 2014, 11:00 am by: Casey Newton

    Andrew Mason has a flair for the unexpected. When the former CEO of Groupon left the daily-deals company he co-founded last year, his farewell blog post seemed to satirize the entire genre of corporate goodbyes. "I’ve decided that I’d like to spend more…

  • This is my e-cig. There are many like it, but this one is mine

    30 July 2014, 10:25 am by: Dieter Bohn

    Every day, I take apart the pieces of my e-cig and clean them. I wipe each part down with tissue or Q-Tips. I examine its parts, naming their arcane names and checking for signs of wear and failure. I unscrew the metal from the metal, I fill it with a…

    30 July 2014, 10:17 am by: Chris Welch

    Virgin Mobile's new build-your-own smartphone plans may be seen as convenient by many consumers, but they also represent the most glaring net neutrality foul we've seen come from a US carrier. The Sprint-owned company likely suspects that most people won't…
  • The 'Road House' graphic novel kicks you in the face with philosophy

    30 July 2014, 10:12 am by: Aaron Souppouris

    I’ve always loved Road House. The 1989 Patrick Swayze vehicle is an awful, utterly awesome movie filled with clattering dialogue and razor-sharp roundhouse kicks. Babak Ganjei agrees with me. He's dedicated the past few months of his life to creating a…
