This $6,000 ‘Lamborghini’ smartphone will make you feel special

If you want a smartphone to match your lux lifestyle, you can’t settle for the same old iPhone as everyone else. You need something unique to show off just how special you are. That’s where the 88 Tauri from Tonino Lamborghini comes in. Only 1,947 of these Android smartphones will be made, so you can be sure you won’t run into someone on the street with the same device. And, yes, it does cost $ 6,000, but it ups your masculinity quotient by at least 50 percent thanks to all of those leather finishes and angular slabs of steel. It also takes “the most luxurious selfie in the world,” whatever that means.

Those interested in picking up the 88 Tauri should be aware that, despite the raging bull logo and typeface, Tonino Lamborghini is not…

Angela Merkel argues against net neutrality, calls for special access fast lane

German Chancellor Angela Merkel has laid out her vision for the future of the internet, and net neutrality proponents won’t be pleased. In comments on Thursday in Berlin, Merkel argued for a two-lane internet. One lane for “special,” high priority service, and another that’s meant to resemble the internet as it exists today.

While supporters of net neutrality argue that it is key to the continued growth of the internet, Merkel believes just the opposite. She argues that fast lanes are necessary for the development of new, advanced uses of the internet, like telemedicine or driverless cars. According to Merkel, without guaranteed, fast-access internet connections, such innovations won’t come to market.

Can you have a fast lane and…

Here’s the first promo for the Black Mirror Christmas Special

It’s been nearly two years since the last new episode of Black Mirror, the fantastic, dark-as-hell British sci-fi series created by Charlie Brooker (which you should absolutely be watching right now), but the wait is nearly over: behold, our first glimpse of “White Christmas,” the Black Mirror Christmas. There’s nothing like Oona Chaplin screaming into an endless, shapeless white void to get us all in the holiday spirit!

We don’t know too much about the plot of the special right now, aside from Channel 4’s statement in a press release: “It will be the most mind-bending episode yet, showcasing three interwoven stories of Yuletide techno-paranoia.” (Let’s be real, is there any other kind of techno-paranoia?) From the looks of the promo,…

Nick Frost plays Santa Claus in this year’s ‘Doctor Who’ Christmas special

Peter Capaldi’s first season as the Doctor has just wrapped up, but don’t worry: there’s more Doctor Who where that came from. BBC has just released its trailer for the annual Christmas special, and it looks like the very funny Nick Frost (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz) will be making an appearance. He’ll be playing none other than Santa Claus himself, which is pretty much perfect if you ask us. While you wait for the Christmas special, you can catch up on the latest season with our recaps and analysis of each episode.
