StumbleUpon changes repeat Digg blunders of old

There's some heavy changes going on out there in the world of content sharing, and StumbleUpon is feeling the sting of taking a gamble on keeping customers. What the content sharing site has done in its most recent update pushed sites to the background while it sticks its own menu bar in the foreground, this effectively taking away the element of freedom that StumbleUpon users had for so long been able to tout over similar sites. What StumbleUpon leaders had hoped to accomplish with this change is a click-retention ratio that would drive their own site into the record books - instead its cutting down their support from all sides.

Scientists Create Robot to Punch Humans Repeatedly

Scientists Create Robot to Punch Humans Repeatedly

Isaac Asimov's first law of robotics is well known amongst the Sci-Fi community. Something as powerful as, "A robot may not injure a human being" is pretty important, especially considering we've now got robots beating world-class human shogi players. But, apparently that first law doesn't mean anything if robots don't know the exact details as to how hard they can hit a human, before they injure a human. Thanks to a group of scientists, that law is currently being tested in the only way they see fit: by telling a robot to repeatedly punch humans.

Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 edge release details and first-impressions

Samsung has announced US availability for its flagship Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge smartphones, and what better way to celebrate them landing on the SlashGear review bench than an impromptu photo-shoot. Announced back at Mobile World Congress earlier this month, the metal- and glass-bodied Android smartphones mark the beginning of a new - and welcome - design direction for Samsung, swapping the plastic of their forebears for a far more premium feel. The S6 edge, meanwhile, raises the stakes with a double-curved AMOLED display. Consider the gauntlet thrown down well and truly to the iPhone 6 and HTC One M9; read on for our first-impressions.

Fantastical 2 arrives on OS X with new look, more features

The stock Calendar for OS X isn’t bad by any means, but there’s one third party app that seems to have snatched the crown away from the bundled offering.

To round things out handsomely, Fantastical 2 has arrived, and brings in a host of new features.

On-body detection's purpose is to free you from repeatedly unlocking your phone as long as it remains in your hand or pocket.

Samsung’s new 128GB eMMC 5.0 storage targets the lower end

As repeatedly mentioned before, with the push for higher displays and CPUs on smartphones slowing down just a wee bit, attention is now being given to the last part of the system to catch up: storage. We are entering a period of not just faster flash memory for mobile devices but also growing densities. Samsung is now trying to pull up even those on lower rungs of the device tier by bringing out the highest density 128 GB eMMC 5.0 storage squarely marketed for mid-range devices.

Ghostbusters universe expands: New movie to star Channing Tatum

Ghostbusters universe expands: New movie to star Channing Tatum

We told you about the all-female cast Ghostbusters movie coming out this summer. Now, Sony will be creating the new production company Ghost Corps to handle all of the films in the re-envisioned Ghostbusters universe. They will also look to continue the Ghostbusters legacy through television, merchandising, and toys. (Can I get excited about the toys for a minute?) Even without a series reboot, the toys have always done well 25 years after the last movie. First up for Ghost Corps is to create a second Ghostbusters movie that will begin production this June.
