They never sat me down for a serious talk about the proverbial \"birds and the bees.\" Neither did my older broth

Consider it an unspoken, but universally true rule: if it can be used for porn, it will be. Texting, Snapchat, Skype and video streaming technology have all fallen to mankind's more base desires, and now, Vine has too. According to a post on the Vine blog, the company has determined that a small p

The age of Big Brother everywhere is certainly upon us, and while we've seen (or at least heard of) tracking devices being implanted in the most unusual of places, it looks like Xerox is hoping to join the devilish fray.

These little robot tadpoles -- lovingly named \"Tadros\" -- are modeled after the larvae of sea creatures called \"sea squirts\": each h
