The 2015 .GIFYs: vote for the best of the net’s favorite file format

It's the year 2015 and everyone on the internet loves GIFs, right? Well, now it's time to vote for your favorites in The .GIFYs! As it stands, this the only award specifically for the silent, endlessly looping file format, but believe it or not, this is their second year of voting. In their own description, The .GIFYs say they are "the first and only award show honoring the animated GIF as a medium, social commentary and art form," but don't think it's all about prestige and high-brow, there's still cats. Lots of cats.

Pay for McDonald’s with hugs and dance, says Super Bowl ad

As the Super Bowl advertising blitz is about to descend upon us this Sunday, companies are eager to get as much value as possible from their 30 to 60-second ads, such as posting them early online for audiences to see before the big game.

ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com owner selling site, tired of dealing with glitter

Less than a week after launching, the Australian entrepreneur behind the fiendishly clever ShipYourEnemiesGlitter.com is trying to sell the site and be rid of the awful product he sends people at your request. 22-year-old Mathew Carpenter made headlines with his site that offered to anonymously mail an envelope full of glitter to any address in the world for $9.99. Turns out trying to ship glitter sucks just as much as receiving a "glitter bomb" in the mail.

The so-called "80's Sitcom Fever Dream" has swept the Internet after airing on Adult Swim every morning throughout the week of Halloween, and it has polarized viewers -- you either love it or you hate it, there seems to be little room between.

Kids react to old cameras: “Such hard work”

It's time for another adorable "Kids React" video in which the younger generation reacts to now-obsolete gadgets and other old tech, simultaneously making us laugh and reminding us that we're getting old. In this newest video, kids are reacting to an average point-and-shoot film camera, trying to figure out how to operate it and, their most troublesome issue, how to put the film in place. They all prove successful in the end, but not before pleas for help and comments like "There's no photo fluid in this thing!" are made.

Hawk takes down drone in aerial combat

Drones have 99 problems, and as it turns out — birds are one. Think about life if you were a drone.

Now you’ve got predatory birds to deal with? It’s hard out here for a drone, y’all.

Chinese city has special path for smartphone users

We’ve all seen that person walking around, more interested in their smartphone than the real world.
