Once again, unvaccinated people experience a measles outbreak

The Disneyland measles outbreak is directly attributable to vaccine-denier movements, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said today in a conference call with reporters.

From January 1 to 28, 84 people in 14 states have been reported as having measles, said Anne Schuchat, the head of the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases. Most of these cases — 56 people — are linked to the outbreak at Disneyland resort in Anaheim, where five employees are sick as well. The remainder were infected abroad and brought the disease back.

Watch people lose their minds when subjected to the Tesla P85D’s ‘insane’ mode

When Elon Musk first showed off the Model S P85D, Tesla’s high-end all-wheel-drive electric car, he said that his company wanted to reach the kind of acceleration achieved by the world’s greatest supercars. With the help of a dash camera, some unsuspecting victims, and the car’s ability to accelerate from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.2 seconds, a P85D owner made a super sweary compilation video to show that Tesla was certainly successful in making its newest model shockingly speedy.

People are unwrapping drones for Christmas and it’s not going so well

Thanks to the massive rise in of consumer drones, one of the most popular items under the tree this year is likely to have four rotors and a camera.

It’s been an interesting day for Kernel, the site powering Sony’s digital rentals of The Interview in the US. Not only did it briefly buckle under the pressure of people hammering its site to watch the movie, but apparently it didn’t do a great job in securing copies of the film, either. Those who spent $ 5.99 to watch a 48-hour rental of The Interview on their browser could simply share the URL of the film with anyone else. Worse yet, anyone who had access to the link was able to save an unprotected copy locally through a super obvious loophole, something The Verge was able to confirm from different browsers and locations.
