The most recent institution to ban the gadget was the San Diego Comic Con(SDCC.) It wasn’t banned throughout the event but it was banned at any of the closed door conferences. The worry is that people would film it and post...

Samsung have paved the way for smartwatches to become a popular thing instead of a, uh, not so popular thing.

Remember the Power Glove? If not, it was a contraption for the original Nintendo Entertainment System that promised the world and delivered, well, pretty much nothing.

You could buy a gun, but then you run the very real risk of accidentally shooting your penis or vagina off. Mace? That stuff is so 1980s. Snoozeville.

We love paying exorbitant amounts of money for cards that depict it. Here’s one thing though. Baseball is pretty difficult. Not just anyone can be a boy of summer.
