Recent comments from the Rev. Franklin Graham might make this year's No. 13 NFL draft pick Laremy Tunsil the poster child for how personal activities can negatively impact one's professional life.
Graham blasted Tunsil on Facebook last week regarding the football player's recently resurfaced bong-smoking video, asking, "How much does it cost to act stupid? It could cost you millions — just ask Laremy Tunsil."
Tunsil, who was once considered the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, tumbled down the draft list last Thursday after a video of the former Ole Miss left tackle wearing a gas mask and smoking a bong was posted to his Twitter account the day of the draft. Tunsil said his account had been hacked. more >>
There's already a buzz about Google parading a couple of fresh Nexus devices this year, which of course will have to be a lot better considering the kind of legacy the previous handsets built. But instead of commissioning the old reliable brands like Huawei and LG, Google is reuniting with the Taiwanese brand that built the Nexus One – HTC.
Several reports online revealed that Google is paying HTC to build the 2016 edition of Nexus phones, which reportedly are code named M1 and S1, although other sources say that Google is naming them as "Marlin" and "Sailfish."
There hasn't been any hardware specifications given, not even a peak at the features or images of the phones. But there's really no blaming Google for tapping the services and partnering with HTC considering the positive feedbacks the phone manufacturer received with its HTC 10. more >>
One of China's biggest electronics and gadget companies, Xiaomi, made an unexpected announcement by unveiling a smartwatch like no other, and they're calling it the "Mi Bunny." As the code name suggests, it's literally a watch designed for kids, but is it really for them?
By looking at the features, it looks more like a good gear for parents who want to improve on how they handle their kids. Although most smartwatches in the market are highlighted by health and fitness features as well as entertainment functionality, this one focuses on safe parenting instead.
One feature allows kids to make phone calls to mom and dad by simply pushing a single button, and it does not need to pair with another phone or GSM device because it has its own SIM slot. Aside from making phone calls, there's also a panic button where a notification is sent to the parents with the help of GPS. The watch is also water resistant and comes with a sufficient 300 mAh battery that can last up to six days. more >>
Ford Motor Co. is feeling the heat from competing car manufacturers Tesla Motors Inc. and General Motors Co., particularly in the long-range electric vehicle segment. Actually, the American brand has not had a line of vehicles that can be described as part of that segment, but that is expected to change with the announcement that it will be entering the market sooner than later.
By definition, a long-range electric vehicle is a battery-powered variety that has the capability of going at least 200 miles or even more on a single charge. Presently, only Tesla and General Motors lay claim to having the biggest shares in this particular market.
Ford CEO Mark Fields relayed his company's ambitious plans during a conference call last week with several reporters, experts, and analysts. "We want to make sure that we're either among the leaders or in a leadership position," he said. He added that they want to develop models that can directly compete with the existing industry leaders, but he did not specify as to when they're going to start building. more >>
In Sunday's fifth episode of National Geographic's "The Story of God," actor Morgan Freeman continues his quest to find out why evil exists in the world.
"To understand why evil exists, we have to know where it comes from," Freeman says. "For Christianity, it could be the devil himself, or is evil something that comes from inside us?"
Growing up as a child in Mississippi, Freeman encountered his first experience with evil in the form of racism at a Greyhound bus station where white and black people were segregated and he was forced to enter through a door designated for "colored" people. Freeman explains that as a young boy, he was confused by the ordeal. more >>
The much anticipated DLC for "The Witcher 3" is becoming more and more intriguing as time passes. While CD Projekt Red has yet to announce when the DLC pack is arriving, fans of the game are already being treated to hints and teases about what new things to expect when it does arrive. The latest news hints that the size of the new region, Toussaint, will be as big as the Skellige Isles combined, according to a report in WCCFTech.
The report cited an interview with the game developer via a German website Gamestar, where CD Projekt Red mentioned that the Toussaint region where Geralt will be exploring in the upcoming DLC, is as big as the total area of all the Skellige Islands, which are actually six islands located off the coast of Verden and Cidaris in the game.
According to a VG 24/7 report, the islands of Skellige are one of the main areas of the game and is therefore a huge area to cover. If Toussaint is of the same area, this means that Geralt has a lot of ground to cover. The "Blood and Wine" DLC is bringing with it around 20 to 24 hours of gameplay, according to a report in Yibada. more >>
