A Drone That Anyone Can Afford
Why settle for one propeller when you could have four? The Snowflake Stealth quadcopter soars, hovers, flips and tilts at high speeds with ease and safety. And, at $35 your new toy won’t make you break the bank.

Who needs advanced medicine when these babes are about?

Look at those big, brown, pre-revolutionary eyes.

BRB, re-reading all seven books.
She’s wearing the iconic green tunic and everything.
Though Nintendo has not actually officially said it's female incarnation of Link, it totally seems like she is.
There is even a moment where Linkle looks longingly at the compass and green tunic every Link throughout history has used.
She's got her own flair though - instead of fighting with a sword and shield, she slays with two crossbows.
Have you ever dared to dream?
Nintendo validated your entire childhood Thursday by announcing Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy VII will be a downloadable character in Super Smash Bros. for 3DS and Wii U.
The trailer came at the end of a 45-minute Nintendo Direct which announced other content, like new Fire Emblem and Pokèmon puzzle games. Nintendo has not announced a price or release date for Cloud.
It might seem like a feverish fanfiction dream, but it's true: Cloud, Ryu, Mega Man, Sonic, and Mario are all in ONE game.
The trailer is chock full of details and love - the Buster Sword and Cloud's spiky hair are just like you remember them.
Midgar looks accurately dark and dreary even in the bright world of Smash Bros.
Make your binge-watching less basic with these tips for Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.
Use an add-on like NEnhancer for a better browsing experience.
Chrome offers a few apps to make the Netflix menu a little more helpful, including ones that put trailers or Rotten Tomatoes and IMDB ratings right on the info panel.

Use your smartphone as a remote with certain devices.
Losing the remote is annoying, but you probably always have your phone on you, right? If you're watching on a device like Roku or Xbox One, you can download the product's official app to use your smartphone as a remote across all apps supported by the device.

Watch Netflix and Hulu in actual HD.
By default, your Netflix playback settings will be on "Auto," meaning the service will determine your streaming quality based on connection. You'll need to go into the Account menu, then Playback Settings and set your data usage to High in order to force HD or Ultra HD playback. In Hulu, you can change this in the settings menu in the control bar of any video you're currently watching.
Bear in mind, this will use up a ton of data (up to 7 GB per hour for Ultra HD), so if your internet company charges you for overages, you might want to leave your settings as-is.
Want better streaming quality? Watch during the day.
If you're watching Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime or other popular streaming services during peak hours (i.e. in the evening, when everyone is home from work), the increased traffic will mean poorer picture quality for you. To watch in the highest quality possible, plan your binges for weekday afternoons if possible.

How Burgers and Fries Are Killing Your Microbial Balance
Burgers and fries have nearly killed our ancestral microbiome.
Elementary, my dear Watson!
It’s just not worth it.
First off, PC graphics are just total garbage when compared to console graphics.

You can barely customize anything. WHERE'S THE CUSTOM FACEPLATE???
PCs are just way, way too fast.
Imagine how much more unique this would be if it was a generic PlayStation or Xbox.
