TechCrunch was invited to tour ESPN Live's mobile studio for the Superbowl in San Francisco. ESPN is slated to create 45 hours of on-air content at this temporary location. With two official sets and plenty of space to film more casual conversations on the lawn, there is a constant buzz of celebrities, hosts, producers and camera technicians jumping between the ten different shows being filmed on-site. Lucas Matney goes behind the scenes.

Astonishing, rare images of the Vietnam War from the winning side

Many of these photographs have rarely been seen in Vietnam, let alone in the rest of the world. In the early 1990s, photojournalist Doug Niven started tracking down surviving photographers. One had a dusty bag of never-printed negatives, and another had his stashed under the bathroom sink. Vo Anh Khanh still kept his pristine negatives in a U.S. ammunition case, with a bed of rice as a desiccant.

Key & Peele will provide live commentary during the Super Bowl

If you're one of those people who finds the Super Bowl to be a largely unpleasant display of pointless competition, millionaires slamming their bodies into other millionaires, and men yelling at a TV screen, Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele may have just saved your Sunday. The duo known as Key & Peele will host a live video broadcast during the Superbowl with their own take on the proceedings. There are, however, at least two catches. First, the stunt is technically an ad for Squarespace, and second, Key & Peele are legally blocked from saying players' names or specifically mentioning the game at all.

Here's your first look at Matt Damon's return as Jason Bourne

The July release from Universal Pictures marks Damon's first time playing the superspy since 2007's The Bourne Ultimatum . In the interim, Universal tried to restart the franchise with Jeremy Renner as Bourne stand-in Aaron Cross, with middling results; Renner is apparently set to star as Cross in this one, too, so all's apparently well.

How to Save Money on Your Cell Phone Plan

Choosing the right wireless phone plan used to be pretty straightforward: Pick your bucket of minutes and sign up for a two-year contract. But ever since T-Mobile blew up the subsidy game with its Uncarrier plans and other carriers followed suit, creativity has run wild: We now have shared data plans, installment plans, and bring-your-own device plans to reckon with. Choice can be paralyzing, especially when carriers seem hell-bent on making the process as complex as possible, but doing some research can help make those choices work for you. In this guide, we'll outline the strengths and weaknesses of specific carriers and the varied plan options on offer. Also, be sure to play around with the handy calculator and rate comparison tool above, which will give you a better idea of how each carrier compares for your purposes.

Super Bowl commercials are finally showing strong women and it's about time

“She is perceived as a strong-willed, sophisticated female, and I thought it was a good choice. It was simple, and I liked the ad,” Stephanie Holland, the founder of She-Economy, which consults on marketing to women. “Budweiser is one that I think really nails it every year. There’s always that emotional aspect to it, and a real human side to Budweiser.”

Google pushes further into virtual reality with new headset - FT.com

Google is hoping to improve the quality of the mobile VR viewing experience by embedding new software directly into its Android smartphone operating system, rather than relying only on a traditional app as it does with Cardboard today. One issue with many current smartphone-based VR viewers is that users can feel dizzy or nauseous. This is because the virtual images displayed can lag slightly behind the user's head movements in the real world, known as latency.

7 times Beyoncé highlights black activism and beauty in 'Formation'

Beyoncé uses "Formation" to remind listeners and viewers that although she's a wealthy entertainer, she's still very much aware of the struggles faced by people who look just like her. While not the first, this is perhaps the most public, defiant example of what she and Jay Z have done to advocate for and support the black community.

Super Bowl 50 to showcase tons of new tech, shatter bandwidth records - TechRepublic

Last year's Super Bowl in Glendale, Ariz. resulted in 6.23 terabytes of information being used during the event, and a new record is expected to be set during Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, Calif. San Francisco 49ers COO Al Guido said he couldn't predict the precise amount of data that will be consumed by fans on Sunday at his team's home stadium, but he said, "who knows if it will approach 10 terabytes. There's no question that everybody has been preparing to break the record. I don't doubt whatsoever that it will be broken."

Why America Is Moving Left

On issue after issue, it is the young who are most pleased with the liberal policy shifts of the Obama era, and most eager for more. In 2014, Pew found that Americans under 30 were twice as likely as Americans 65 and older to say the police do a “poor” job of “treating racial, ethnic groups equally” and more than twice as likely to say the grand jury in Ferguson was wrong not to charge Darren Wilson in Michael Brown’s death. According to YouGov, more than one in three Americans 65 and older think being transgender is morally wrong. Among Americans under 30, the ratio is less than one in five. Millennials—Americans roughly 18 to 34 years old—are 21 percentage points less likely than those 65 and older to say that immigrants “burden” the United States and 25 points more likely to say they “strengthen” the country. Millennials are also 17 points more likely to have a favorable view of Muslims. It is largely because of them that the percentage of Americans who want government to “promote traditional values” is now lower than at any other time since Gallup began asking the question in 1993, and that the percentage calling themselves “socially liberal” now equals the percentage calling themselves “socially conservative” for the first time since Gallup began asking that question in 1999.

Microsoft is experimenting with underwater data centers

When your laptop or your smartphone gets hot, you know it's crunching a lot of data. So you can imagine the amount of heat generated by the racks upon racks of servers that store and process the world's digital lives. Keeping these data centers cool is such a problem that tech companies like Facebook and Google prefer to  move them to colder countries than pay the air conditioning bill. But for Microsoft, there's an even better home for all that data: under the sea.

Beyoncé announces Formation World Tour during the Super Bowl

The reveal was finally made during the Super Bowl telecast, and tickets will go up for presale on February 16th. This is a big deal for a few reasons. The first is that Beyoncé is already one of the biggest touring acts in the world, a fact that's supporting by her website being overloaded by fans since the announcement aired earlier this evening. The second is that she's going on tour without having an album to promote, which is virtually unheard of for most artists. Of course, since "Formation" is pretty much the song of the weekend at this point, it's safe to say that Beyoncé had the Super Bowl won even before it began.

The Best Cheap Headphones (Under $50)

Less than ten years ago, a headline like the one above would've been hard to imagine—inexpensive headphones simply hadn't cracked the code. But times have changed, and headphone manufacturers have achieved something that was previously inconceivable: inexpensive headphones can now pump out booming, palpable bass without distorting, and deliver very solid sound quality in general.  You're still going to need to spend a decent amount of money if it's studio-level clarity and balance you're looking for. But if you want to improve on the so-so audio performance inherent in the standard-issue earbuds bundled with mobile devices, and you want to do it without breaking the bank, it's possible. Read on for what to look for in a pair of budget headphones, along with our 10 top-rated picks under $50.

The Evolving Technology Of The Super Bowl

As football fans gear up for the 50th anniversary of the Super Bowl this Sunday , we can expect to see not only a great athletic game, but a host of dazzling new technology at play behind the scenes, working to seamlessly bring the game to millions of viewers. To really appreciate how sophisticated this sport has become, here’s a look at some of the ways Super Bowl technology has evolved in the last fifty years.

What huge Super Bowl food looks like in doll-sized portions

In the U.S., game day food is all about size: dozens of buffalo wings, heaps of nachos, XL pizzas, pounds of dip, gallons of beer. But you never see those dishes in dainty, gourmet form. So, we decided to plate supersize American snacks in tea party portions — just for the heck of it.

42
'X-Men: Apocalypse' Super Bowl teaser clears up villain's evil plan

There's also a female singer with marbles in her cheeks singing a more-emo-than-Coldplay version of Coldplay's super-emo "Beautiful World," which is a pretty good sign that darkness and woe are afoot — another clue that the "apocalypse" might be a theme in this film.

Watch the Super Bowl trailer for Independence Day: Resurgence

While the original film was hardly short on pyrotechnics, Resurgence looks like it'll blow up even more of the planet, as the aliens bring bigger guns and greater numbers back to Earth to finish their aborted invasion. Whole skyscrapers are ripped out of their foundations in today's trailer, pulled into a darkened sky by huge alien spaceships, before being dropped back to Earth. Will Smith's not in the picture any more, but expect a lot more fancy flying from his son, all grown up and now a fighter pilot himself. The movie's landing in theaters on June 24th.

New Captain America: Civil War Super Bowl trailer: "you chose the wrong side"

Marvel kicked off what's sure to be a long night of new film trailers during Super Bowl 50. The new Captain America: Civil War spot is the film's most intense ad yet (case in point: Robert Downey Jr.'s Tony Stark "blocking" a point-blank gun shot) with a chorus chanting "united we stand" and "divided we fall" throughout the 30-second spot. We also get a better glimpse of both "sides" of the fight (but  still no sign of Spider-Man ).

Doritos and the decade-long scam for free Super Bowl commercials

This Sunday, Doritos will continue its tradition of crowdsourcing its Super Bowl commercials. In its decade-long run, what began as a supposed opportunity for aspirational filmmakers has become a cheap and tacky campaign that exploits creators of free labor and promotion. Like the snack it’s selling, the campaign will leave a bad taste in your mouth.

For Super Bowl, ESPN taps tech in San Francisco (pictures)

ESPN gave CNET a behind-the-scenes look at its weeklong coverage of Super Bowl 50, which meant a convenient cable car ride across town for us. The TV network is shooting most of its NFL-related programming at the Marina Green in our hometown of San Francisco. As its name suggests, the Green is an inviting lawn that sits on the waterfront and offers postcard views of the iconic Golden Gate Bridge and the famous San Francisco Bay. The network will also use the spot as a backdrop for episodes of its popular SportsCenter program, which averages up to 115 million viewers a month. In addition, ESPN Deportes will be airing a Spanish-language telecast of the Super Bowl, which takes place just south of SF at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California this Sunday.

This week in patents: Facebook, Apple, Boeing and more

Current 3D printing techniques employs a “bottoms-up” building method in which the part is built layer by layer on a supporting platform that moves down as individual layers are formed. A single print head is moved around the platform to form each of the layers. Therefore, it’s necessary to build the part on support materials which must be later removed from the 3D printed part. Moreover, the use of a single print head to form features of each layer renders the fabrication process relatively slow.
