Global internet and data services provider US Internet has let it be known this week that they're bringing the fastest internet connection in the history of the world to Minneapolis, Minnesota.

Target begins testing beacons in 50 retail stores

Target begins testing beacons in 50 retail stores

Target is following in the footsteps of Macy's and other stores and will launch a pilot program testing out beacon technology. The beacons use Bluetooth to pipe communications to customers’ smartphones — in this case, sending deals to those who are in the stores, recommendations, and more. This won’t be the equivalent of unwanted spam, however, as customers will be advised about the feature and will need to opt-in if they’re interested. iPhone users will be the first to get the deals.

Inside the graveyard of the USSR’s space shuttle program

Inside the graveyard of the USSR’s space shuttle program

"It belongs in a museum," we shout, as we scour this collection of photos of the MZK building. This is Site 112A at Baikonur Cosmodrome, Russia's space launch facility - the world's first operational space launch facility, mind you, and the largest. Photographer Ralph Mirebs entered the ruins of a once great piece of space race history earlier this month, and below lies the results of his efforts. Inside this facility are two spacecraft, the second and third in a line that included Russia's answer to NASA's Space Shuttle program.

This One Photo: An Eagle on a gravestone at Fort Snelling National Cemetery

This One Photo: An Eagle on a gravestone at Fort Snelling National Cemetery

On Memorial Day 2015, a photo of a bald eagle perching on the gravestone of a fallen soldier rings true to the spirit of the day. Today is a day when the United States remembers those women and men who died serving in the country's armed forces, and this one photo taken at Fort Snelling National Cemetery by photographer Frank Glick has struck a nerve. While the photo itself was taken months ago - scratch that, YEARS AGO - the image has spread *again* in a big way since earlier this morning.

An Amazon marketplace called "Amazon Home Services" briefly appeared today as a rebranded version of its "Amazon Local Services".

Google’s View-Master: here’s how it works

Google’s View-Master: here’s how it works

Believe it or not, you won't actually need a View-Master to view the content Google is presenting this week. The View-Master device is just a box with a magnetic switch - just like Google Cardboard. To "view" a View-Master reel - like the "reels" you remember from the original View-Master, you'll need only your smartphone. To view these reels correctly, you'll need a Google Cardboard headset - and that doesn't need to be manufactured by Mattel. The View-Master headset just makes everything easier to understand visually.

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

AMC introduces the Unlimited Movie Ticket: Interstellar first

Back when Star Wars was first released, it quickly became common - at least with a classic like that - to go to a film more than once in the theater. The trend was summoned once again with Titanic, then again with the Star Wars prequels. AMC Theaters and Paramount Pictures have caught on to the trend at last, revealing an "Unlimited Ticket." This is not like the subscription passes of the past for certain theaters or certain brands. Instead, this is a first-of-its-kind Interstellar-specific ticket.

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet LTE Review

Welcome back to what I consider the world’s most versatile tablet. When I reviewed the NVIDIA SHIELD Tablet just a few weeks ago in its Wi-Fi edition, it became immediately clear what NVIDIA was aiming for - a tablet that’s made for gamers, but rolls with the punches for anyone else that might want to take a stab at it. With the LTE version of this slate, I honestly can’t think of a tablet better suited to be my one companion for travel, at-home entertainment, and gaming.

Comcast is down in several states, it’s not just you

This evening Comcast is having issues in a number of states across the USA. If you live in Minneapolis/St.Paul, San Francisco, Houston Texas, Orlando, Atlanta Georgia, Richmond Virginia, Philadelphia, NYC, Claremont New Hampshire, Detroit, Chicago, or Seattle - you’re in the yellow zone. It would appear that problems are revolving around internet, though a small amount of complaints suggest a TV blackout is in effect as well.
