Yesterday, the skater pup Eric Spock MacLean a.k.a. Erocdog was seen showing off his skills — this time, outside the front doors of the BBC in central London.

A Twitter user shot a video of the doggie skating outside the busy news building. 

In the video, the dog’s owner chases after him as he careens straight for the glass entrance. Eric came to a crashing halt, thankfully missing the revolving door.

Enough of George pretending to be nonchalant (while he’s obviously concerned about Brexit, like all of us) or dressing up as a sailor (who dresses up as a sailor anyway?!?).  Read more…

When did laptops become such a danger on planes?


First shoes, then liquids, and now laptops.

With reports suggesting the airplane cabin laptop ban may soon expand from flights originating in eight Middle Eastern and African countries to parts of Europe, it’s clear that our computers have now joined the list of things we have to worry about when flying. 

However, some big questions remain: Why now, and why are laptops considered OK in a plane’s cargo hold but not in its cabin?

Laptops have been a key feature of international travel for years, with passengers in both business and economy classes tapping away on long flights to get work done or pass the time. As the administration of Donald Trump considers forcing certain travelers to check laptops into cargo holds, thus risking cracked screens and possible fires, it is reasonable to ask what’s changed — and if this is anything more than security theater.  Read more…

Harry Styles is asked if his new song is about Taylor Swift and it gets super awkward


Harry Styles had to know that someone was going to eventually ask this question. He really should have practiced his poker face in the mirror.

During a BBC Radio 1 interview, host Nick “Grimmy” Grimshaw asked the question that’s been on everyone’s minds — is the song “Two Ghosts” about his famous popstar ex, Taylor Swift?

Huge rotting sea creature that washed ashore is horrifyingly turning the water red


Something has washed up on the shore of an Indonesian island. It’s huge, it’s floating — and it’s rotting.

UK startup Improbable just raised half a billion dollars to build the Matrix


A UK company wants to build massive-scale simulations of reality, and they just raised $502 million to do it. 

The Series B funding round, led by Softbank, values the company at over $1 billion. The money will be used to develop Improbable’s technology, in particular its SpatialOS cloud-based operating system (currently in beta), which allows gaming companies to create huge virtual worlds.

Improbable claims that SpatialOS allows for the creation of larger, and more complex worlds which support more simultaneously connected users than is possible with current technology. The limitations of current tech, among other reasons, is why Blizzard’s World of Warcraft MMORPG is divided into multiple “servers” and isn’t one persistent world where all the players play at the same time.   Read more…
