Marvel’s Ant-Man teased with teeny movie clips

Marvel’s Ant-Man teased with teeny movie clips

Marvel's Ant-Man, the movie that had a bit of a rough spell before ultimately casting Paul Rudd and recently entering production, has officially been teased -- and by teased, we mean a literal tease, in that viewers are shown several clips from the movie that are entirely too small to actually see.

Kangaroo takes down nosy drone

Situations in which drone use is acceptable are still being worked out, both on the legal and the social level. The FAA has concerned itself with making sure quadcopters and other drones don't become a public safety hazard, and the public itself is forming its own standards about drone etiquette -- it is frowned upon to fly a drone to peek over your neighbor's fence, for example, something demonstrated by a Reason poll showing 47-percent of people felt they could destroy it under such circumstances.

Amazon Fire TV update bricking rooted devices

Amazon Fire TV update bricking rooted devices

Amazon's Fire TV set-top box aims to drive consumers toward Amazon's own services, and it does that by locking users down to the company's own ecosystem. Not everyone is satisfied with that, however, and so there is a strong community of DIYers who have rooted their devices to enable functions otherwise kept outside the curated wall, so to speak. Those users had an unfortunate surprise when updating to the latest firmware, discovering that it bricked rooted consoles upon rebooting.

Hardware hack lets you play Snake on an LED-lit keyboard

Before there were birds, plants, or candies, there were snakes. The semi-addictive game debuted on Nokia's mobile phones and become *the* mobile game, until colored screens and higher end hardware pushed it into obscurity. But what if you had fond memories of the game, a penchant for modding any hardware you can get your hands on, and lots of time in those hands? Why not recreate the game in the most unimaginable computer possible, as shown in this mod by Jeroen Domburg, software developer by day, hardware modder by night, and creator of possibly the world's first Snake game on a keyboard.
