Dickheads Drive By Bus Stop And Steal A Guy’s Pizza

I’m not sure who these right-hand-drivers are, exactly, but what kind of jackass grabs a pizza out of a guy’s hands as he waits for the bus? Poor bastard already has to take the bus, and now you take his pizza?

iPhone 6 and 6 Plus: In deep with Apple’s thinnest phones

The iPhone 6 (left) and iPhone 6 Plus (right) have kicked small phones to the curb.
Andrew Cunningham

Big-screened iPhones are what the people want, and Apple has acquiesced. After months of part leaks and rumors, you can finally buy the newer, bigger, faster iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, and it looks plenty of people are doing so.

Any review of the new phones needs to spend an extensive amount of time with these screens, since they’re the headlining feature and the one that the most people will notice. We’re going to spend a lot of time with them too, but there’s a lot more going on here than just big displays—Apple has upgraded the phones’ cameras, expanded their batteries, and replaced last year’s 64-bit A7 chip with the brand-new A8. iOS 8, a large release even if you’re not upgrading your phone this year, has picked up some features (and some challenges) unique to these new phones.

Buckle up, because we’ve gotten our hands on the new phones and we’ve been torture-testing them during every waking moment since. Wondering what the iPhone 6 Plus’ optical image stabilization does for your pictures? Want to know more about the Apple A8, and which of Apple’s promises about the chip stand up to scrutiny (hint: not all of them)? Need to know what your apps are going to look like, and how they’re going to work in this brave new big screen world? Read on, because we’ve got all that and more.

You Don’t Think About The Danger Of Old Cars Until A Guy Dies

You Don't Think About The Danger Of Old Cars Until A Guy Dies

It’s hard to describe what it was at first. A cough? A hiccup? A stutter? The engine misses a beat on the highway back from the Lime Rock Historics and I shut the engine straight off and coast to the shoulder. A few hours earlier, an old man had died at the wheel. Now, why am I here?
