The Verge Playlist: It’s Valentine’s Day and you’re going to be alone forever

Today is a very special day. Today is a day we celebrate love and hope and love and kissing and sex and hearts and candy and having someone who will care when you die. It’s very real, and very serious. Some people don’t have that person, and for those people, I’ve made the only playlist you’ll ever need.

There’s the pinnacle of loneliness: Bonnie Raitt’s “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (also covered amazingly by Prince, but that’s not on the internet). There’s a desperate torch song: Dusty Springfield’s truly pitiful “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me.” There’s Drake, alone and drunk in a basement: “Look What You’ve Done.” There’s the Violent Femmes’ pleading, self-loathing “Please Do Not Go.” A few loops should take you through the night. I…

Facebook’s new ads want us to believe it’s the only thing connecting us to the world

Facebook has long been touting its power to connect old friends and long-lost acquaintances, but its new ad campaign takes that one step further. The company’s recently released ad series reminds us that Facebook is worldwide, and as such, it can connect people around the world.

Drake made an experimental art film and it’s peak Drake

As far as I’m concerned there are two Drakes. The one we all know is Drake, the multiplatinum rapper / singer / recording artist, who in five years has amassed more Billboard hit songs than The Beatles. The other Drake is Internet Drake, who exists solely in the land of memes and gifs to be constantly ridiculed under the hashtag #drakethetypeofguy. Today, the two Drakes have come together in a short film called Jungle.

Jungle is a 15-minute arthouse film that follows Drake around Toronto as he reminisces and hangs with his friends. It begins with Drake talking in his strongest Degrassi accent to his driver, conveying his angst that “the energy out here is changing, you know?” It’s dark and moody, with clips of a young Aubrey Graham…

The Nintendo New 3DS doesn’t come with a charger, and it’s weirdly hard to buy one

Nintendo isn’t including any way to charge the New 3DS XL when it launches in the US this Friday, which is strange (even by Nintendo standards). To be clear, this means that if you don’t already have a 3DS charger purchased separately or from a previous device, you will be able to use your new handheld for an hour or two — however much residual charge is in the battery out of the box — and then it will go dark, and you will be staring at a brick. An infinite void, a place where neither Mario nor Link can be found. Playtime is over. Dreams are crushed. God help you if you gift a charger-less 3DS XL to a young child with a temper.

First real alternative to Photoshop launched… and it’s free!

Read more about First real alternative to Photoshop launched… and it’s free! at CreativeBloq.com


We’re big fans of Affinity Designer, a low-price but high-end Mac alternative to Adobe Illustrator launched last June. And we’re not alone: Apple, for example, awarded it the number 2 Mac app of 2014, and designers have generally given it the thumbs up.

DayZ has sold 3 million copies even though it’s still in development

Open-world zombie survival game DayZ has sold over three million copies since launch in December 2013, according to developer Bohemia Interactive. It sold one million copies during its first month on sale, and passed the two million mark during its first four months. Those are impressive numbers for any game, let alone one that spawned from a user-generated mod and is still in the alpha stage of development.

But DayZ (and its me-too competitors, The War Z and Rust) is one of the only places for gamers to fend for themselves in a lawless, digital world. Players are tossed into an abandoned wilderness with few supplies and are left to their devices to find a way to survive through unpredictable encounters with other desperate survivors….

Uber admits it’s a taxi company in quest to restore services in India

Uber says it is resuming operations in New Delhi a month after it was banned following the alleged rape of a passenger by one of its drivers. The mobile car-hailing service has applied for taxi license in the city — an unprecedented move as it usually claims to only be a technology company “connecting riders to drivers,” rather than a full-blown taxi firm.

Uber’s fine print states it is “not a transportation carrier.”

This distinction has been at the heart of numerous protests against Uber, with traditional taxi firms arguing that it allows the San Francisco-based company to avoid costly regulatory hurdles such as vehicle and background checks. The company itself states in a section at the bottom of its websites labeled “The Fine…

The Onewheel isn’t a skateboard, but it’s still fun as hell

On Tuesday night I made the mistake of climbing the fence that surrounds the convention center parking lot where our trailer is stationed. I don’t exactly remember what happened, but I made it to the top, remember it wobbling, and the next thing I knew I was on the ground in a lot of pain. I badly injured my right foot. Normally this wouldn’t be much of an issue besides the pain, but I had a rideables shoot less than 12 hours later.

I limped back to the hotel in excruciating pain, and when I woke up the next morning my foot was red, swollen, and hot. I was still in just as much pain, if not more. I thought I was screwed. How could I possibly get on the Onewheel when I could barely walk?

This is the first Kodak phone, and it’s probably not for you

Legacy camera brands the likes of Polaroid and Rolleiflex have tried pivoting to stay relevant in the digital age, and you can now add another company to that list. The Kodak IM5 — let’s be real, everyone will call it the Kodak Phone — is made by Bullitt, a company that specializes in ruggedized phones that are typically licensed to companies like Cat. We just tried the IM5 on the Pepcom floor, and despite my hopes that Kodak would bring some photographic know-how to it, it’s pretty clear that it’s not for me.
