    I don’t have any hard stats in front of me at the moment, but if I had to guess I would say that at least 80 percent of people who are worried about their internet speed feel that way due to Netflix (or some other less polite video streaming service). So the fact that Netflix […]

    As impossible as it may seem, the people at Wayv Tech have introduced a handheld microwave, which the company says serves as “the world’s first Portable solid-state RF food heater ‘microwave.’” It’s called the Wayv Adventurer (not to be confused with the Wavy Adventurer, which I think is a kind of clown).
