Counter-Strike player releases fake hacks, gets thousands of cheaters banned

Counter-Strike may be one of the older options when it comes to picking an online FPS, but it still has a hardcore following, and if there's anything a dedicated fanbase hates most, it's cheating. Fortunately, one player has fought back, and in turn become the hero that fans need most. Known as AndroidL on Reddit, the player released a number of fake hacks for Counter-Strike: Global Offensive, targeted them at cheaters, and in turn got over 5,000 banned from the game by developer Valve.

SNL Star Wars sketch shows you what toy commercials won’t

Being in my early 30s, I never had the joy of experiencing any of the original Star Wars movies when they were in theaters. However, ever since my aunt and uncle introduced me to their VHS copies, I've been fascinated by the stories, lore, and of course, the toys. I've always been the type that opens my figures and enjoys them that way, as opposed to leaving them in the box. Over the weekend, Saturday Night Live had a skit that might hit close to home for some collectors out there.

Uber used as getaway car during armed robbery

Well, here's one of the more creative uses of ride-sharing service Uber that we've seen recently. A young man in Maryland recently had no getaway vehicle or driver after robbing a store, so he did the next best thing: he opened the Uber app on his phone and requested a pickup.

This iPad on a stick is camping out for the iPhone 6s

One Australian has come up with a brilliant way of being one of the first in line to buy the new iPhone 6s, but not need to waste several days standing in front of the Apple Store. Lucy Kelly has a telepresence robot, which is basically an iPad on a mini Segway, holding her place fourth in line at the Sydney Apple Store.

Android iPhone clone shown as “iOS 9”, iFans love it

Here is yet another episode in the almost ridiculous tug of war between iOS and Android. With iOS 9 just a month or so away, some thought it might be high time for some very late April Fools gag. So what does happen when you slap Android on a smartphone that looks incredibly like and iPhone 6 or 6s and sell it off as the next iOS 9?

Bethesda will accept Fallout 4 preorder made with bottle caps

It was only a week ago when we told you about the dedicated Fallout fan that sent a box full of bottle caps to developer Bethesda as a pre-order for the upcoming Fallout 4. The gamer, who goes by GatorMacheteJr on Imgur, detailed how he had collected over 2,200 bottle caps in the seven years since Fallout 3 as a sign of how much he loved the series. Seeing as how bottle caps are used as currency in the game's post-nuclear apocalypse setting, he figured they were just as good as cash in paying for the next game.

Apple: fart apps not allowed on Apple Watch

Well, color me disappointed. Turns out one of the first apps owners of the new $17,000 luxury Apple Watch Edition won't be downloading is one that plays fart sounds. Dang, thanks a lot Apple!
