Schwing! ‘SNL’ app adds AirPlay and Android support

Since it launched in February I’ve been a pretty big fan of the Saturday Night Live app, and the latest update should make it quite a bit better. Now there’s native iPad support (hooray!) in addition to it being available on Android devices. NBC’s also gone back and remastered some of the old sketches, added […]

Lenovo’s super-light LaVie Z laptop is now available

If you’ve been jonesing for a featherweight laptop but feel that Apple’s MacBook rubs you the wrong way, you’re in luck: as promised, Lenovo is now selling the LaVie Z and LaVie Z 360 in the US.

Unmanned cargo chopper shows off its search-and-rescue talents

For three years between 2011 and 2014, the unmanned Kamen K-Max 1200 helicopter delivered more than 4.5 million tons of supplies to the most dangerous and far-flung US Forward Operating Bases throughout Afghanistan.

Scientists look at flower cells in 3D without wrecking them

Plants are delicate things, which makes them a pain to study under an electron microscope — you’ll probably damage the very cells you’re trying to look at.

Circa has some great ideas but its news lacks soul

Lots of people suddenly love you when you’re dying. It’s guilt.

Meerkat for iOS gets address book integration, Facebook stream promotion and ‘Mobbing’

Former flavor of the week, live-streaming app Meerkat, continues to push for growth with some new iOS features that have just gone live. The most interesting new addition is ‘mobbing,’ which sees users with a popular live stream automatically pushed onto the app’s main activity feed. Users will apparently be notified that their feed has been ‘mobbed’ by […]

Death To C

Ladies and gentlemen, the C programming language. It’s a classic. It is sleek, and spartan, and elegant. (Especially compared to its sequel, that bloated mess C++, which shares all the faults I’m about to describe.) It is blindingly, quicksilver fast, because it’s about as close to the bone of the machine as you can get. […]
