Mozilla puts another nail on Flash’s coffin

Mozilla puts another nail on Flash’s coffin

Once the darling of the Web, Flash has become a liability and an embarrassment. But as much as the powers that be want and work to make Flash go the way of the dinosaur, there are still a few holdovers on the Internet that refuse, or at the very least can't, switch away from it just yet. To help ease that transition, at least from the end user side of things, Mozilla is equipping the latest nightly version of Firefox with a tool that will little by little make Flash unnecessary.

It’s Friday, so check out this Aston Martin Vulcan screaming

Aston Martin has a new hypercar in the pipeline, promising to bring something very loud and very special to the Geneva Auto Show early next month. Details on the Aston Martin Vulcan are still in short supply - right now the storied British marque is only previewing some track-day squealing and roaring - but according to the rumor machine the car is shaping up to be a slice of highly limited-edition exotica aimed at those who want to blast past McLaren and Ferrari owners when racing.

8-Bit Philosophy makes you existential using retro games

8-Bit Philosophy makes you existential using retro games

Maybe you glossed over your philosophy homework in college, or some of the concepts were a bit too heavy to stick properly the first time around. Regardless, there's a better way to get your feet wet with all things existential and ponderous, and it's called 8-Bit Philosophy. Fans of 8-Bit Cinema will be familiar with the style and nature of the videos -- each one is short and styled after a retro game, but rather than recreating popular movies, the series sets out to simplify philosophical concepts.

Netflix says it’ll be available in Japan in Fall 2015

Netflix says it’ll be available in Japan in Fall 2015

Netflix is a force to be reckoned with, and there's no sign of that slowing down. The video streaming service is making a massive push for original content, the likes of which it has largely found success with (so far), and at the same time it is also working to expand its audience. Netflix revealed in the recent past that it'll be arriving in Australia and New Zealand next month (though there's debate about how effective that will be), and likewise the service arrived in France last year. Now it has set focus on Japan.

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Watch a camera shutter and exploding orange in ultra slow motion

Slow motion videos let us look at ordinary things -- water dripping, bugs flying, etc. -- in an entirely new and often fascinating way. All the while, this form of video also provides us with a look at the finer details that happen in the blink of an eye (or faster) that we'd otherwise never get a glimpse of. A camera's shutter is one of those things, snapping at impossibly fast speeds and being little more than a clicking sound to users. On the flip side of things, there's also exploding oranges.

Details emerge about Twitter’s video service to rival YouTube

Details emerge about Twitter’s video service to rival YouTube

Back in November, Twitter confirmed that it would be launching its own video service akin to YouTube as part of its growth strategy. While a launch date wasn't specified, other than sometime in the first half of 2015, details about the service were skim to say the least. That is until recently, when Twitter user Daniel Raffel noticed a FAQ page for the video service was already available, revealing a number of details including file types supported and just how it plans to directly compete with YouTube.

Ford freezes Shelby GT350 to show the pony is practical

Ford freezes Shelby GT350 to show the pony is practical

Expectations of practicality for a 500HP+ muscle car may not be everyone's first concern, but Ford isn't taking any chances when it comes to where and when Shelby GT350 Mustang owners can drive. Over at the company's Drivability Test Facility - a veritable automotive torture chamber, where a huge range of potential driving conditions can be replicated so as to see how cars like the potent Mustang variant cope with them - the Ford engineers have been dropping temperatures to see how the GT350 handles the cold weather some owners will inflict on it, and it's about more than just switching to Snow mode on the traction control.

Google+ can now automatically fix up your videos

Google+ can now automatically fix up your videos

Recording videos from our mobile devices is easy peasy, thanks to developments in camera sensors and photography apps. But no matter our best efforts and best technology, we sometimes still end up with blurry shots, shaky frames, washed out colors, and dark results. If that is usually your case, Google+ is now providing a one-click solution called Auto Enhance that will, as the name says, try to touch up your recorded video to make them look and sound better than ever before.

Google+ adds auto enhancement feature for videos

Google+ adds auto enhancement feature for videos

Google Plus's Auto Awesome feature has been improving its users' images for a while now, and we've seen different updates related to it roll out over the months. Back in December of last year, Google added its year-in-review videos, for example, and it now it has added an auto-enhancement feature that improves uploaded videos (if the user wants). The enhancements improve sound quality as well as the footage itself. We have a comparison video showing the enhancements in action after the jump.

YouTube quietly introduces GIF creator tool

YouTube quietly introduces GIF creator tool

Your GIF collection is about to get bigger. YouTube is testing a GIF creation tool that allows users to select a portion of a video and turn it into a GIF, no third-party tools necessary. The creation tool makes it easy to add text to the resulting GIFs, as well, with options for adding both top and bottom lines of text. Unfortunately, this feature isn't widely available yet, and so it is assumed YouTube is only testing the tool at this point.
