You may finally be able to ditch your Finstagram for good. Instagram is testing out "favorites," a whole new way of sharing photos with certain groups of people.

The Central Intelligence Agency is America's best-known intelligence agency, but it's still shrouded in secrecy.

Other honorable mentions include Munge Payload, McNugget, RoidRage, and Philosoraptor. Read More ››

In case you were lucky enough to miss Bethesda's tepid showing at E3 2017, blockbuster RPG The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim is getting yet another re-release. This time, it's coming out, at least in part, in VR. If this were the first, or even the second time that Skyrim has resurfaced, I might not bat an eyelash. But since its release in 2011, it's been re-released three times: for current gen consoles in 2016, and Read More ››

When was the last time you bought a laptop that lasted as long as advertised, especially if its a PC? Probably not any time recently. Problem is, manufacturers continue to insist on using video playback to measure battery life. That is, frankly, nonsensical; video playback is literally one of the most efficient things a modern processor can do, and using it to measure battery life creates wildly unrealistic expectations for the average consumer.
