I don't love e-sports. I've never really been a fan. I used to enjoy spectating Guild Wars matches, but only in short bursts. Truth is, I prefer playing in PvP to watching it. I feel that way about real sports too; the ones I like, I'd rather play than watch. (Except tennis. I have no idea why, but...

Want to really make a statement at this year's family holiday gathering? Unwrapping this absurdly opulent iPhone 6 would certainly elicit gasps -- and maybe a few gags -- from all corners of the room.

By now, there's a good chance that you've seen or heard about Adult Swim's Too Many Cooks -- an epic, warped internet video that sends up the overly tidy world of '80s and '90s sitcoms.

Rickrolling is almost as old as the world wide web itself, but filling someone's iOS Camera Roll with photos of the beloved Rick Astley is something I've never seen done before. This new take on the rickroll requires you to gain access to your friend's device, which might be a bit tricky, but the ...

In spring of 2010, I was asked to come on board Massively primarily as a feature writer who would also do a little news on the side. This opportunity was incredible since I was already blogging multiple times a day about online gaming, so why not be a part of the professional side of writing? Ov...

Drunk Tech Review is at the forefront of the drunken tech journalism movement.

I'm really not a big fan of those constant reminders from the media as to how much time has gone by using pop culture as reference points. I'm really not. So I kind of hate myself for saying this, but friends, next month will be World of Warcraft's 10th anniversary! Ten years! How old are we now! ...

This is my kitten, KitKat, way back in July. She's sitting on top of my vintage Apple II, where she often waits for me to get home from trips. That's a first-generation iPad next to her, so she can keep up with all her friends online....
