Space: the final frontier. Also a seemingly awesome vacation! That’s why we’re spending our Thanksgiving on Comet 67P, humanity’s hippest spot for star bathing and crater skating. Er, okay, so we’re a long way off, but this week, for the first time in the history of space exploration, we have landed a space probe on a… (Continue)

The Only Links You’ll Ever Need (This Week) 9/29 – 10/3

This week on the internet: drastic overreaction! The discovery that some new iPhones bent under the pressure of tight pants drove common citizens into a frenzy. Some consumers (read: two teenage Android fans) even turned to iViolence when they forcedly bent an iPhone 6 Plus at an Apple store in the UK.

Congratulations Internet. You did it. You brought Surge back. We’ve been through a lot in the past twelve years… Keyboard Cat. N64 Kid. The entire lifespan of the iPod. But you never forgot the one that got away: a soda that made the entire world shrug. Good work, team.

This week on the internet: utter chaos. Many of our favorite sites faked sick in protest of a cable merger, while Apple’s livestream troubles proved to be all too real.
