A new Mario Kart 8 Deluxe update has just been released, in which developers did away with what could have seen as an offensive gesture.

The character Inkling Girl was first seen in the game with her hand resting flat on her bicep while raising a fist — something that could have been perceived as an insult in parts of Europe.

Netizens were also quick to pick up on it.

Tech Firm Makes Long Distance Move

Long Road Ahead For California Tech Firm

long distance moveCal-Tech Tools announced Friday that they were making the long distance move from Silicon Valley to New Jersey. Surprised by this decision, Wall Street reacted to the move like any other. Stock prices dropped immediately as investors speculated on the cause of the move. One investor said while being interviewed, “you don’t just move your technology business from Silicon Valley to New Jersey because you want too”. That being said, you have to wonder why a giant tech firm like Cal-Tech tools would up and leave the most innovated geographical location in modern history. California has been a hub for tech startups and tech minded people in general for decades. Apple is an example that everyone could relate too. Steve Jobs built Apple into the dominant business it is today right there in Silicon Valley. We tried contacting the corporate offices and industry lawyers to try and understand the motive behind the move. After multiple attempts we did not hear back from either the corporate offices nor the legal group we had emailed. So I decided to make a list, to help make sense of the move, and I think you will laugh at the results I came up with.

Why Move Long Distance From CA TO NJ

• There is no good reason to move that far!

• Because you are being acquired by another company?

• Because the CEO is a Bon Jovi fan?

• Because New Jersey is such a nice place to live? (Yeah Right)

• Because Cal-Tech Tools is going under? (Haha)

All Jokes Aside

Okay, so that list was less than serious but it was all I had. Without a phone call returned and nobody to interview I was short on insider information. As I was driving around the back of the corporate office however I did spot a moving truck with New Jersey license plates. I jumped out of the car and ran over to the moving truck to talk to the guys packing the trucks. None of them had any valuable information other than they were hired to move the office furniture long distance across the country from CA to NJ. After talking with the guys at Bluebell Relocation, we packed our stuff up and made the long distance move out there as a temporary solution until we found out more details about the move.

Look, perhaps the buddy cop genre hasn’t been the quite the same since the days of Lethal Weapon or even Rush Hour, but here’s a fresh partnership idea for film executives.

Meet Senior Constable Tiffany Greig and her baby kangaroo (a.k.a. joey) sidekicks, who travel with her while she’s on patrol in the remote expanses of the Flinders Ranges in South Australia.

“When I got him he was about a kilogram; he was a tiny little thing but he was just the funniest, most robust little roo I’ve ever had,” she told the publication. Read more…

The internet points out the many, many politicians who’ve had it worse than Donald Trump

TwitterFacebook

Donald Trump has it bad. Nobody has it worse. Terrible. And he wants new graduates to know it.

“Look at the way I’ve been treated lately, especially by the media,” Trump said in a commencement speech at the Coast Guard Academy in Connecticut on Wednesday. “No politician in history, and I say this with great surety, has been treated worse or more unfairly.”

No politician in history. Please don’t fact check that.

Police release cringeworthy video telling kids not to buy drugs

We’re not sure what’s in the water Down Under, but Australian police like to try and outdo each other by having the country’s weirdest social media presence.

Google video shows how its new VR feature could be a game changer

TwitterFacebook

Google’s virtual reality announcement Wednesday at Google I/O was a big deal. 

But that might not be readily apparent to those still getting their feet wet in VR, so Google made a video to help you get a better idea of what WorldSense does. 

SEE ALSO: The first IMAX VR arcade is a huge hit—and I can see why

Current mobile VR headsets like the Samsung Gear VR and Daydream View have 3DoF (three degrees of freedom), only allowing you to look around in VR from a fixed point (as if your head is on a tripod in the middle of a panoramic bubble). In that dynamic, you can’t get a truly immersive sense that you’re in another environment.  Read more…
