Exploding Kittens shipping today

Exploding Kittens shipping today

The Kickstarter-smashing card game by the name of Exploding Kittens has begun shipping as of today. Created by a crew that includes The Oatmeal's Matthew Inman, this game was created with the hope of selling 500 decks of cards through a crowdfunding campaign. The campaign saw unimagined success, winding up selling 460,000 decks instead. As such, the crew would be forgiven for not meeting their original projection of a July delivery of the game. Lucky Kickstarter backers, though, they tightened their bootstraps and went to work - the game begins shipping today.

Prince releases ONE SONG to Spotify

Prince releases ONE SONG to Spotify

This morning Prince released a singe by the name of "Stare" to Spotify exclusively. This is now the one song available from Prince on Spotify other than tracks on soundtracks and associated labels. After removing all of his singles and albums from Spotify and other streaming services earlier this month, Prince has returned with one song. The idea here, clearly, is that Prince doesn't need to have all of his music available all the time. Instead, he'll reveal one track at a time, pushing the hype machine in strange new directions.

Five Nights at Freddy’s movie director tipped: Gil Kenan

In early April, it was announced that the mild horror game Five Nights at Freddy’s will be turned into a movie by Warner Bros., which acquired the film rights earlier this year. That rights acquisition wasn’t just a move to cut off other potential studios — Warner Bros. is actively working on production plans, and we’ve already been teased by what they include. Seth Grahame-Smith, David Katzenberg, and Roy Lee have already been revealed as on-board, and now the film’s director has been leaked.

The day Star Wars and Netflix destroyed cable TV

The day Star Wars and Netflix destroyed cable TV

Today a rumor suggests that Netflix will be the first place Disney's Lucasfilm will bring a live action TV show. Originally rumored for release on cable television back in 2009, this television show is one of several that may just herald the end of the traditional cable TV era. If Disney does bring a collection of Star Wars live action episodic shows to the world via Netflix instead of cable television, it'll most certainly be another nail in the coffin of the traditional model. And we've got Kimmy Schmidt to thank.

CBS tipped in plan to livestream Super Bowl 50 ads

On February 7, 2016, many people will swarm around the TV to watch Super Bowl 50, and a decent number of them will just be in it for the commercials.

CBS is reportedly having none of that nonsense next year, and instead been tipped in a plan that, as far as the TV industry goes, is huge: it will reportedly be streaming those commercials live in real-time, letting you watch them from your smartphone at the same time someone else is watching them on television.

Original LEGO calculation busted by math professor

Original LEGO calculation busted by math professor

This Friday a documentary will be released by the name of "A LEGO Brickumentary," and in it, a math professor will tell you how many different LEGO creations you can make. Of course the real number isn't entirely feasible to calculate. Back in 1958, LEGO estimated and suggested through a patent (as created by the original LEGO creator's son, Godtfred Kirk Christiansen) that six standard LEGO bricks could potentially be stacked in around 103-million ways. According to math professor Soren Eilers, whoever suggested 103-million was about 900-million off the mark. Behold this tiny brick clip.

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google+ cuts ties with YouTube with one important warning

Google announces cutting software ties between YouTube and their social network Google+. No longer will YouTube require a Google+ profile for new users looking to upload, comment, or create a channel. No longer will comments posted on a YouTube video also be posted on a user's Google+ profile. Freedom from one or the other is upon us. No longer will Google be pushing Google+ directly in to the comments section of YouTube, and both parties will be the better for it.

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

67-year old Schwarzenegger recreates iconic Terminator 2 bar scene

In an effort to promote his special appearance in a wrestling video game (WWE 2K16), Arnold Schwarzenegger has recreated his role as the Terminator from T2: Judgement Day. It is here that he re-enters the biker bar in the nude, demanding of a biker: "I need your clothes, your boots, and your motorcycle." Of course this biker and the rest of the patrons of the bar are all wrestlers - but that's not going to change anything, really. He'll still get the cigar jammed into his chest, and we can assume the rest of the carnage will follow.
