Mopar made this retro drag monster from Dodge’s Challenger

Mopar made this retro drag monster from Dodge’s Challenger

Dodge's Challenger is no stranger to performance, but Mopar is giving the coupe a distinctly retro drag-racer kick with the new Mopar Dodge Challenger Drag Pak. A factory-prepped race car for those with a taste for going very fast in a straight line, the Mopar Drak Pak will offer not only a naturally-aspirated engine option but - a first for Mopar - a supercharged model, both markedly different, though no less crazy, from Dodge's own Challenger SRT Hellcat with its 707 HP V8.

YouTube Newswire offers curated videos of important events

YouTube Newswire offers curated videos of important events

YouTube has decided to take advantage of the large number of videos showing important events that are uploaded to its service, and it is doing so through its newly announced “YouTube Newswire”. YouTube Newswire is a new hub of sorts for videos of "emerging news events" taken by the eyewitnesses who are there when it happens. Such a hub is being done in partnership with Storyful, which will be taking care of the curation end of things. For viewers, this simply provides a new way to sort through the videos and find ones related to weather, news, and politics.

Twitter’s auto-playing videos have arrived

Twitter’s auto-playing videos have arrived

The auto-playing video. It's okay if you don't like it. Others feel the same way, so you're not alone. The problem is that despite the large number of people who detest videos that start playing without permission, social networks are launching them anyway. Twitter's auto-playing videos are now upon us, at least if you're using iOS of the web (if you're not, your day of reckoning is inbound). Twitter announced the feature's arrival in a statement today, calling it a "new standard for viewability."

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

Apple Watch Review – Controversially compelling

To call the Apple Watch polarizing is to do the splenetic depths of online argument around it an injustice. For the past few weeks I’ve been living in the eye of that storm, the contentious wearable on my wrist. I’ve worked with it. I’ve traveled with it. I’ve exercised with it. I drew the line at showering with it, though Tim Cook says that’s okay too. And all along the way - well, perhaps not in the shower - people have asked me that one question no other Apple product has faced to quite the same extent: is the Apple Watch really worth it?

Marvel short videos to be developed by Maker Studios

Marvel short videos to be developed by Maker Studios

Long form video is the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of visual entertainment, but the Internet is packed full of short-form videos, and they provide seemingly endless snippets of amusement for a wide array of preferences. It isn't surprising, then, that many studios have cropped up that specialize solely in short-form videos, the kind you're likely to find on YouTube and Vimeo, and one such studio is Maker Studios. In a recent announcement, the company revealed it will be making some Marvel content.

Designer makes (nearly) combat-ready Batsuit

Designer makes (nearly) combat-ready Batsuit

If you dream of spending your nights prowling the streets on the lookout for ne'er-do-wells, those dreams just got a little more real (but still aren't advisable): a designer has created a Batsuit that is able to withstand the combat situations a real-life Batman might get himself into, including assaults with blades and punches to the body. It isn't quite as stylish as the latest theatrical Batman suit, and you're not going to be repelling down buildings with it, but it is impressive nonetheless.

3D Robotics drone teaser tips prosumer DJI rival

3D Robotics drone teaser tips prosumer DJI rival

With the controversy and FAA sparring about drones you'd be forgiven for thinking that nearly everyone was crowding the skies with quadcopters, but the reality is that UAVs are still relatively niche. 3D Robotics looks keen to change that, however, teasing a new model that looks to improve not only the aesthetics but ease-of-use, too. Sporting a stealthy color scheme that would make a covert Tac-Ops team proud, the unnamed drone could be 3D Robotics' answer to DJI's increasingly straightforward gadgets for aerial photographers.

YouTube Autoplay rolls out, here’s how to turn it off

YouTube Autoplay rolls out, here’s how to turn it off

Websites get more traffic and, in some cases, more money, the longer you stay on their site and the more you get hooked on their content. On YouTube, that equates to watching more and more videos without having to stray away from the page. And what better way to do that than by enticing you video after video after video. That's right, YouTube's once experimental Autoplay feature is now rolling out to all users to keep you from getting bored, or escaping. Fortunately, it's easy to turn it off.

NBCU tipped in standalone comedy subscription service effort

NBCU tipped in standalone comedy subscription service effort

For the longest time, cord-cutting (getting rid of cable) meant jumping through a lot of hoops and possibly resorting to less than kosher methods for getting one's entertainment fix. Networks have been slow to embrace technological changes, but now that consumers have moved in such a great mass toward the technology most convenient to them (mobile devices, primarily), some daring companies have decided to cater to them, and now the ball has begun rolling. Latest to contemplate launching a standalone subscription video service is NBCUniversal.

Huawei Watch teased as luxury Android Wear option

Huawei Watch teased as luxury Android Wear option

The world clearly needs another circular smartwatch, and Huawei is hoping that its unimaginatively-titled Huawei Watch will be the one to end up on your wrist. Expected to make its official debut at Mobile World Congress 2015 on Sunday, but already previewed in a pair of videos, the Android Wear timepiece aims at the classier end of the scale, with a sleek stainless steel casing, minimal ornamentation, and of course that round touchscreen.
