Samsung's Back to School Essentials

Going back to school can be a struggle. No more lazy days at the beach. No more sleeping in until noon. Your days are full classes rather than fun in the sun. But with a few Samsung gadgets — like the Samsung Galaxy S ®5, Samsung Tab® S, and the Samsung Level ™ family of products — and some new...

Alienware just built the Mac Pro of gaming PCs

Apple's new "trash can" Mac Pro is pretty wild, but Alienware might have just snatched back the title for craziest desktop PC with its new Area-51. Gone is the rectangular tower desktop of old — in its place, Alienware's made a funky, hexagonal machine. Similar to Apple, Alienware claims the design for its new desktop has some practical benefits beyond just looking insane. Since the back of the desktop isn't perpendicular with the floor, the company says you can push the unit up against the wall without blocking its all-important ventilation. Hardcore gamers should take note that the...

Brazil arrests 'greatest destroyers' of the Amazon rainforest

Authorities in Brazil this week arrested members of a criminal gang that they described as "the greatest destroyers" of the Amazon rainforest.

WHO says ebola outbreak may infect 20,000 before it can be stopped

The World Health Organization says a total of more than 20,000 people may be infected with ebola in West Africa before the virus is contained. The United Nations agency released a new roadmap for dealing with the outbreak today, designed to respond to the "urgent need to dramatically scale up the international response" to the rapid proliferation of the disease. The document says the ebola virus is spreading much faster than the WHO had anticipated, and would cost at least $490 million to...

This Diddy remix of a Smashing Pumpkins song took 16 years to release

There was a time — 1998, to be precise — when the Smashing Pumpkins and Diddy (then Puff Daddy) were two of the biggest acts in the industry. Despite their musical differences, they even came together for a collaboration, with Diddy remixing two of the band's songs from their Adore album. But, for reasons unknown then, the remixes were never released.

A few years ago, one of the remixes finally popped up, a funkier version version of the Pumpkins' song "Perfect." Now, after 16 years, Rolling...
