Are athletes really getting faster, better, stronger?

When you look at sporting achievements over the last decades, it seems like humans have gotten faster, better and stronger in nearly every way. Yet as David Epstein points out in this delightfully counter-intuitive talk, we might want to lay off the self-congratulation. Many factors are at play in shattering athletic records, and the development of our natural talents is just one of them.

Assassination Investor - GTA 5 Wiki Guide - IGN

***NOTE***   This may be a glitch, but it is possible to get a return profit of over 100%.  How I did this is that right after the mission, you should sell your [BET] stocks and then buy your [BIL] stocks. Your game should then auto-save.  If it does, reload that autosave. As soon as it reloads, go ahead and go to your portfolio.  If done right, the return should be way higher than 80%. But note that if you take too long in selling your [BIL] stock, the game will remember your last mission and put the stocks back down where it's supposed to go and will have to wait to get the 80%+ return.  Here's a photo from Trevors phone on what your portfolio should look like if you did all of this right:

The wireless and cable industries just sued to kill net neutrality

The FCC officially published its new net neutrality rules to the Federal Register yesterday, opening the door to legal challenges. Opponents wasted no time. CTIA, the trade association that has represented the wireless industry since 1984, filed a lawsuit with the DC Circuit Court of Appeals today. In  a blog post , the group wrote that it intends to push back against "the FCC’s decision to impose sweeping new net neutrality rules and reclassifying mobile broadband as a common carrier utility." The National Cable and Telecommunications Association, the American Cable Association, and AT&T also filed suits along similar grounds.

'Guitar Hero' gets born again with a new look and a new controller

Guitar Hero has no business being relevant in 2015. Ten years is an eternity for video games, especially so for games tied so closely to specific technology like Harmonix's revolutionary PlayStation 2 game was to its inner-rock-star-summoning controller when it came out. A decade on from that original, and five years on from the last release in the series, Guitar Hero is an icon, but it also feels like a relic, a work hopelessly locked in its era. A 10-year anniversary reissue, maybe with some bonus tracks thrown in, seems like the best-case scenario for Guitar Hero coming back to life in 2015, a dignified archive for the nostalgic. FreeStyleGames has done so much more with its new game Guitar Hero Live. The studio has made a game that feels deeply modern, relevant, wholly distinct from Rock Band and somehow still rooted in tradition. It's all thanks to a new controller and a wildly different look for the series' debut on PS4, Xbox One and Wii U. Guitar Hero Live keeps the fundamentals of the classics -- using a plastic guitar to play fake notes in a song when they appear in a scrolling bar on your TV -- but it's different in every other way starting with its guitar.

That led him to an eye-opening journey across the world to interview others with depression — only to discover that, to his surprise, the more he talked, the more people wanted to tell their own stories.

Apple MacBook Review: The Laptop of the Future Isn’t Ready for the Present

I own the rMBP 13 and a PC laptop. I don't value portability beyond the laptop size if it comes at the expense of other things. I don't use a tablet -- I prefer my OnePlus One -- if I am going "portable", I want to go *really* portable, as in "in my pocket" portable. For my laptops, I always have a mouse plugged into a USB *and* I use them as desktop substitutes (I do not own a desktop), and so right off the bat the new MacBook is a problem because I want to have a mouse plugged in AND be connected to power at all times.  Yes, I can buy and use a dongle for that, but the rMBP 13 doesn't require me to do so.  I also use my rMBP for my significant photography hobby, and like/need the card slot to upload files to the rMBP to edit them in Lightroom and other programs -- the MacBook doesn't really allow this without using a dongle.  In all, it seems geared to light use and people who value portability above all else.

7 Router Features You Should Be Using for Better Wi-Fi

Do Double Duty: Add External Storage The latest breed of routers can take the pain out of shared data storage, too. Current generation high-end models offer the ability to connect external storage directly to the router, with options for USB 2.0, 3.0, and SATA connections, depending upon the model. This allows a do-it-yourself network-attached storage setup. The data may be accessible via multiple paths in addition to network mapping, for example via a router-based FTP server, which can make folders on the drive available externally via the Web. In most cases, any USB storage device, from thumb drives to spinning hard drives, can be attached and made available as shared-storage devices. If it supports it, the drive could also work with DLNA for use as a media server for DLNA-capable devices on your network.

"Mad Men" Creator Matthew Weiner's Reassuring Life Advice For Struggling Artists

A friend of mine from college had a pilot in the works that needed punch-up. Punch-up is a bunch of comedy writers sitting around the room making a script funnier. I didn’t even know there was such a job, but I got to drive onto the Warner Bros. lot and sit in this room with all these professional writers. It turned out that I was pretty good at it. Everything I said was included in the script, and that felt great. The showrunner came up to me afterwards and offered me $600 if I could stay through the end of the pilot. I was like, "Oh, my God. Yes. I’ll be here." I would’ve done it for free just to be able to drive onto the lot again. That show quickly went off the air, but word had gotten out that I was funny. Another showrunner took me to lunch and hired me for his show. One job leads to another, but you have to start somewhere. It was my first paying job in show business and I was 30.

The golden voice: How an NBA announcer sweetened an overdue dream season

His voice rises and falls with the same natural enthusiasm that’s made him a hit in the broadcast booth. Twice he chokes up at emotional memories. His eyes dart with energy behind the spectacles Warriors fans know so well. His frequent tangents meander far from your original question.

A look at Vizio's affordable M-Series 4K TVs

Earlier today, Vizio introduced its latest 4K TVs, the M-Series . In similar fashion to the P-Series from last year, which started at $1,000, this year's models also come with an affordable price tag. But the M-Series ranges from $600 for a 43-inch model to $4,000 for the largest of the bunch, an 80-incher. Vizio says that with the M-Series, it was all about making refinements and not compromising in order to bring the price down even further . As such, most of the tech found on the P-Series has made its way into the new M-Series, like the LED panel and low-latency HDMI port (a feature loved by gamers, according to the company), among other things. Better yet, these UHD TV sets look great in person; they're relatively thin, sport a solid industrial design and, most importantly, have a picture quality that's not far behind its more expensive competitors. If you like what you see, some online retailers in the US are selling them as we speak.
