This 'Counter-Strike' livestream was interrupted by a real-life SWAT team

A YouTube feed of a Counter-Strike game took an unexpected turn today, when it was interrupted by a very real SWAT team that happened to be sweeping the building. The gamers in the video are part of The Creatures, a group based in Littleton Colorado that publishes videos to YouTube and Twitch, and since the broadcast was in progress during the raid, their entire arrest ended up on the...

Motorola and Yo are giving away 20 Moto 360 smartwatches

Lots and lots of people are about to install a pretty silly app. Yo, the minimalist messaging app that can send only a single word ("yo") to your friends, is holding a Moto 360 giveaway with Motorola. We're just over a week out from Motorola's September 4th press event where we expect to hear pricing and release details for the Moto 360, but the two have teamed up to give 20 people an early...

Gladwell, whose five books about behavioral science and psychology have sold more than 4.5 million copies worldwide, will be taking point on the story, which...

'Party Down' will stream exclusively on Hulu starting this Friday

Here's something to do for this Labor Day weekend that doesn't involve inclement weather: stay inside and watch Party Down on Hulu. Starz's cult comedy ran for two seasons starting in 2009, earning critical acclaim but never finding a large enough audience to keep going. The show enjoyed a brief stint on Netflix before getting pulled a few months before Starz left Netflix entirely.

Starting this Friday, the entire Party Down series returns to the internet as an exclusive to Hulu — and the first five episodes will be free for non-subscribers (though likely still ad supported) for a limited...

Republicans hope this elephant and a busted video game will help 'win back the Senate'

Many people believe the Republican Party has a fairly good shot of taking back the US Senate this November. But to help advance that cause, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) — or one of its interns, probably — just launched a new game called Mission Majority. You play as Giopi (get it?), a pixelated elephant who looks like he belongs in the good 'ole 16-bit era, but is instead doing his best to persevere in a modern world.

Giopi says he's a hopeful GOP volunteer just trying to cut through the "red tape and regulations" standing between Republicans and a Senate majority that would help the right push its legislative...

HTC One M8 for Windows review

The classic Oreo cookie is a wonderful thing. (By classic, I mean the Double Stuf, let’s be real here.) It’s the right combination of crunchy and soft, sweet and, well, more sweet. It’s the best cookie ever and I won’t hear any arguments.

But that hasn’t stopped Nabisco from messing with the formula. The company has released dozens of variations on the idea: different cookie flavors, different filling, different experiences. Some have been a...

Best New Apps: Hyperlapse

Instagram might be best known as an endless stream of pictures of your friends' meals, but their new standalone video app Hyplerlapse aims to change that. It's a dead simple way to create time-lapse videos accompanied by an outstanding built-in image stabilization algorithm that can make shaky...

Chrome for Windows finally optimized for high-res displays two years after Mac version

While Windows 8-powered laptops have been pushing display resolutions higher and higher, there’s been one piece of desktop software that has lagged behind: Google Chrome. Despite updating Chrome for Mac to support the first Retina MacBook Pro after just a month, Google has taken around two years to bring full support to Windows. Chrome for Windows users have had to settle for registry hacks, or optional flags to get various forms of high-DPI support, but the latest Chrome 37 release enables...




Investors reportedly buying into Snapchat at $10 billion valuation

It may have seemed strange when Snapchat turned down Facebook's reported $3 billion buyout offer last year, but here's the reason why: the startup is now raising money at a valuation of nearly $10 billion, according to The Wall Street Journal. Back in May, the venture-capital firm Kleiner Perkins reportedly committed to investing up to $20 million in Snapchat at this high valuation. At least one other investor is also said to be taking part in this round of funding, which reportedly is not...

This iPhone 6 'leak' video is hilarious and perfect

I'll be honest: this video hits kind of close to home. Especially because I saw the headline "Is this the new iPhone 6?" and clicked on it like a maniac, and then I sat for two minutes and twenty seconds (not including the pre-roll ad) and watched...
