Bugatti is making a car for Gran Turismo that hints at its next real supercar
Still, Bugatti says that it'll be "presenting the new form and design language developed by the brand to celebrate the next chapter in its history following the end of the Veyron era" with this concept — a long-winded way of saying that the design elements you see here will hint at the design of the Chiron, the hypercar that will be replacing the legendary Veyron in the coming year.

Intel’s new processors will let you wake your computer with your voice
Intel's Skylake processors have a slightly creepy new feature — they're always listening to you. Shout "hey Cortana" or "Cortana, wake up" at a Windows 10 machine with one of the new chips and it will wake your PC from its low power state. Once it wakes up, Cortana takes over and you can use all the standard voice commands, including telling Cortana to play music. A similar option also appeared on Microsoft's Xbox One and Motorola's Moto X smartphone, but as with those devices, after the novelty wears off, you might find it easier to simply turn on your...

One day after Donald Trump declared Heidi Klum “no longer a 10,” the supermodel struck back at the Republican frontrunner over Twitter on Sunday, showing that as far as she was concerned, his opinions amounted to a big, fat zero. Klum shrugged off his critique in a video response posted to her official Twitter account, in which she can be seen feigning shock as she’s demoted to a “9.99” during a photo shoot.

Skylanders is turning into a mobile card game with real cards
The $3 billion Skylanders franchise is poised to get even bigger: today publisher Activision announced a new digital card game spinoff called Skylanders Battlecast. The free-to-play, mobile game will let players build teams with familiar Skylanders characters, which can then be used to battle both in a single-player mode and against other players online. Blizzard's Hearthstone has more than 30 million players and rakes in an estimated $20 million each month (Blizzard also happens to be a subsidiary of Skylanders publisher Activision). But Battlecast will be looking to build on that success with an important twist: in addition to buying...
The internet is full of men who hate feminism. Here's what they're like in person.
And there's nothing wrong with that, you know?")
