Final ‘X-Men: Days of Future Past’ trailer sets the stage for war

With its release less than two months away, the promotion has really been ramping up for X-Men: Days of Future Past , and today the film’s final trailer has arrived. Directed by Bryan Singer, the film stars both the classic film cast — including Patrick Stewart as Professor Charles Xavier and Ian McKellen as Magneto — with their younger counterparts from the prequel X-Men: First Class . If the flurry of trailers and clips weren’t enough, the film also recently received a new  promotional site called 25 Moments , which details iconic events in history that were impacted by mutants (in the film’s fictional universe, of course). X-Men: Days of Future Past is scheduled to open on May 23rd. Continue reading…

Google built a machine to test the speediness of laptop trackpads

An unresponsive trackpad can ruin a laptop. But how do you test for that without having access to ready-made equipment? If you’re Google, you build your own machine. The company’s Chrome OS team has created the Quickstep, a USB add-on that uses a…

Google’s lottery registration for I/O 2014 begins today at 4PM PT

if you’re hoping to  attend Google I/O , the company’s massive annual developers event, today is the day to register. Google just announced that window to sign up will open today at 4PM PT and remain active through April 18th at 2PM PT. Tickets have traditionally been quite hard to come by — I/O 2013 sold out in less than an hour — so Google’s trying something different this year. Just as  Apple is doing with WWDC ’14 registrations , I/O attendees will be picked in a random lottery, so you can get your name in anytime in the next few days and theoretically have just as good a shot as anyone else

The US military is building a stealth dirt bike

The US military has issued a grant for the development of a stealth motorcycle,  reports Defense Tech . The motorcycle’s “stealthiness” will be a product of its hybrid-electric engine, which will allow soldiers to drive for long periods on rough terrain while emitting virtually no engine noise. And according to Logos Technologies — the company responsible for building the engine — this will be the first hybrid-electric dirt bike ever built. Continue reading…

Intel is losing billions every year on tablets and smartphones

In recent months, Intel has been under pressure to explain  why personal computers haven’t been selling quite as well . But the chipmaker may have another pressing concern: losing billions of dollars on mobile. In 2013, Intel’s mobile chip division lost a hefty $3.15 billion, after posting an operating loss of $1.78 billion in 2012. In the first quarter of 2014 alone, the Mobile and Communications Group saw a $929 million operating loss on a meager $156 million in revenue, according to new financial results issued today by the company. While we’d previously seen Intel  struggle for success with smartphones and tablets , this is the first quarter that Intel has broken out numbers for the mobile division alone, which is responsible for..

Building blocks: how Project Ara is reinventing the smartphone

In a spare, drab office park in Sunnyvale, California, a bunch of two-by-fours and foamboard have been nailed together into a makeshift model of a shipping container. Inside, a bare, unlit Edison bulb hangs from a wire, over some simple IKEA furniture and a table with Lego blocks on it. The blocks are stand-ins for modules that might someday go into the Project Ara phone, which in theory will let users swap in different components on the fly instead of replacing the whole phone when it’s time… Continue reading…

Deny the machine

Around 7AM on January 21st, 2014, a small group of protesters gathered in the driveway of an understated $1 million four bedroom family home in Berkeley and unfurled a hand-painted banner that read “GOOGLE’S FUTURE STOPS HERE.” The house belonged to Anthony Levandowski, a Google engineer best known for leading the self-driving car project. The protesters claim Levandowski left his house on a previous day wearing Google Glass, carrying a baby and a tablet, but only paying attention to the tablet. Today, however, Levandowski did not emerge. The protesters passed out a two-page flyer to Levandowski’s neighbors and loitered.

Finland celebrates homoerotic art with mustachioed stamps

Finland’s postal service this week unveiled a new set of commemorative stamps featuring homoerotic artwork from Touko Laaksonen, or “Tom of Finland” — a late Finnish artist who remains an iconic figure of contemporary gay culture. His illustrations are part of a collection of 33 new designs that the postal service, Itella Posti, will release later this year. The collection includes illustrations of autumnal gardens and Christmas scenes, but it’s Laaksonen’s three drawings — with their trademark musclebound men and leather — that are most eye-catching. According to Itella Posti, the stamps embody the “confident and proud homoeroticism” that lies at the heart of Laaksonen’s work

Swedish politicians take battle to ‘StarCraft’ ahead of elections

Not all politicians hold a grudge against video games. Last Sunday, a number of Swedish politicians participated in a StarCraft II tournament called Politikerstarcraft. Creator Jonathan Rieder Lundkvist told The Daily Dot the objective of the event was to “increase awareness of e-sports in politics, and of politics among gamers.” Interestingly, Lundkvist made it a point to pit representatives with opposing ideologies against one another in the first round.

Xbox One update rolling out with Kinect improvements and friend notifications

Microsoft  seems to be improving its Xbox One software on a  monthly basis , and April is no different. Starting today, the software maker is rolling out its latest update to Xbox One consoles, bringing some new features and improvements along the way. Xbox 360 owners will be familiar with friend notifications when players arrive online, but the Xbox One strangely lacked this feature at launch.

Terror threat to American Airlines results in porn scandal on Twitter

A Dutch teenager known only as Sarah tweeted a dangerously stupid joke Sunday afternoon, telling American Airlines that she was an al Qaeda member gearing up for a terrorist attack in June. The airline didn’t take the tweet in stride; after dressing Sarah down, it proceeded to forward her IP address to the FBI,  resulting in her arrest this morning in Rotterdam, The Netherlands . Now, however, other teenagers have started lobbing bomb threats at American Airlines. Somewhat incongruously, those joking threats spiraled into an explicit photo being tweeted by US Airways in the process

Apple’s iPhone 5 was a “tsunami” that needed to be “neutralized,” according to an internal email written by the former chief executive of Samsung’s American phone company. In a correspondence from Dale Sohn, who was the president and CEO of Samsung Telecommunications America up until August 2013, he suggested the company set up a “counter plan” to thwart the device, which would go on sale just three months later.
