Underfuse Iron-On Reflective Strips

Whether getting a pre-dawn run in before work or cycling home after a late night out, being on the road in the dark can be especially dangerous to anyone not traveling by car. And, while safety is of utmost importance, people often prefer to look……

Cool Hunting

Set aside 11 minutes and 24 seconds and watch this video

Don’t read anything else about this video. It might be a little boring at first. That’s okay. Stick with it. Don’t skip ahead. Watch the entire thing in one sitting. I think you’ll be glad you did. To tell you anything else would ruin the experience.

90 seconds of Skeletor insults prove he’s the meanest boss in the universe

You’ve got to assume that Eternia, the planet that He-Man and the Masters of the Universe call home, has very weak workers’ unions. Why else would the minions of Skeletor put up with a constant barrage of abuse and insults from their boss every time a carefully constructed plan to capture the good guys fails? Luckily, should StinkorKobra Khan, or Tri-Klops ever drum up a lawsuit against the nefarious Skeletor for his terrible treatment of subordinates, there’s video evidence to support their claims — DreamWorks TV has put together a 90-second video showing Skeletor’s harshest zings and baddest burns.

Watch ‘The Hobbit,’ as told in 72 seconds of Lego stop-motion animation

Even if, like me, you have a love for all things Middle-earth, it’s easy to say that Peter Jackson has probably gone overboard with his trilogy of films based on The Hobbit. (My point of view? Two films would have been plenty, and they don’t need to be as long as they are, but I’m still happy to overindulge and spend more time in his gorgeous version of Middle-earth).

However, if you just don’t have the attention span for more than eight hours of Hobbit movies, the YouTube stop-motion artists Brotherhood Workshop have condensed the story of The Hobbit down into 72 tight seconds (it is a kid’s book, after all) and animated it using Lego’s Hobbit-themed minifigs and sets. The results are simultaneously hilarious but also quite fun for…

90 Seconds on The Verge: The End

“I hope they are watching. They’ll see. This is my gift. My curse. And for a moment, I thought we were in trouble. I do wish we could chat longer, but… I’m having an old friend for dinner. I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Now we are free. I will see you again, but not yet. Not yet. And like that… poof… they’re gone. Good night, and good luck.” (Final production notes)

The good, bad, and ugly of YouTube buying Twitch: 90 Seconds on The Verge

“Anarchy! Anarchy! Anarchy!” screamed the voices in his head. The youthful trainer moves around erratically up, down, left, right. Going into his bag. Looking away from his bag. A rattata appears in a shrub near the Route 1 sign post. Out comes Squirtle, as if by instinct. “Democracy! Democracy! Tackle! Tackle!” The rattata is weak and prime for capture! “Anarhcy! Run away!” What?! The trainer thinks he might have a psychosis.

Alibaba is coming to America: 90 Seconds on The Verge

Alibaba is coming to America, but is America ready? Are you ready? Are you even reading this? Hello? Did you just come here to watch this video? Why am I even writing this? Do you care about the description? Is it really that important? Why am I writing to an empty audience? What’s the point? Why am I only writing questions? What does that say about me? Who am I? Am I having some sort of existential crisis? Yep. I am.

Apple and Samsung prepare for another patent lawsuit: 90 Seconds on The Verge

Two households, both alike in dignity, in fair California, where we lay our scene, from ancient patent law to new mutiny, where civil blood makes civil hands unclean. From forth the fatal loins of these two technologically advanced foes. A pair of star-cross’d board members take their life; Whose misadventured piteous overthrows. Do with their death bury their companies’ strife. The fearful passage of their death-mark’d love, And the continuance of their parents’ ongoing legal battles, which, but their employees’ end, nought could remove, Is now the never-ending traffic of our lawsuit; the which if you with patient jurors attend, what here shall miss, our toil shall strive to mend or possibly ban sales of the other’s products.
