They might be man’s best friend, but dogs get a bad rap. They’re always thought of as the dim pet; cats are meant to be much more intelligent. These dogs put paw to keys to show that slobbering on everything is not their only talent.
I've seen many launches of the space shuttle from the point of view of the rocket booster, but none, none I tell you, match this one. It's simply amazing for one reason: the sound. Put your headphones on and listen.
We found out what an internet troll actually looks like in real life, but this is what he thinks he looks like in real life -- hard as nails and creepy as hell. I’m not sure what’s weirder though; the troll face or the disembodied stickman sauntering along the pavement while people try to beat him.
You know those amazing space navigation tabletop-systems you always see in sci-fi flicks? Microsoft’s made one, and it’s called NUIverse. Okay, it’s got a crappy name, but it allows you to navigate around the stars just like in the movies. You can go pinching, zooming, swiping and virtually flying through space, with up to 100,000 stars rendered in real-time, all with a head-up display to boot.

It certainly looks like a large spherical object is sucking the plasma out of our Sun in this video, but according to NASA it’s nothing.
With this imaginative fix, you can watch your camera fall to the earth with slightly less trepidation, secure in the knowledge that a trip to the grocery store and some everyday tools could make everything OK.
