This Political Video About Tech And SF’s Schools Is Too Depressingly Real

mar, 30.09.2014 - 18:17

 I’m normally loathe to talk about political ads, but this is actually a good idea. Sf.citi, which is a Ron Conway-backed non-profit intended to represent tech companies at a civic level within San Francisco, is trying to get startups to “adopt” city public schools. They make a one-year minimum commitment to volunteer resources and time to match whatever a principal says… Read More

Popcorn Time Finally Comes To iOS

mar, 30.09.2014 - 17:29

 Popcorn Time, the so-called Netflix for pirates, is now on iOS. It’s never been easier to watch pirated movies and TV shows on the iPhone or Android device. Is it illegal? Not really. Shady and not exactly ethical? Sure. Not surprisingly, Apple didn’t give the official nod to this app so Popcorn Time cannot be found in the App Store. That said, it’s still easy to obtain… Read More

Forza Horizon 2 Review: A Driving Game That Could Even Win Over People Who Hate Driving Games

mar, 30.09.2014 - 15:44

 Let me start by saying I’m not a fan of most driving games. Any Gran Turismo title has left me cold, and aside from Mario Kart, Rad Racer and San Francisco Rush, I’ve mostly been content to let the genre alone.

Ebay’s Dark Binary Star Is Finally Exploding

mar, 30.09.2014 - 15:14

 eBay hasn’t been a big deal since Beanie Babies. Back when an auction was the coolest thing on the web and real-time JavaScript countdown timers were all the rage, eBay’s main draw was a sort of theatre of commerce aimed at the bored and competitive. You, too, could win a genuine fake quartz Rolex or a broken Barney Rubble bank if you put in the time. The auction/commerce… Read More
