TomTom Is Bringing Tunes to Its Newest Fitness Watches
03-Sep-15   By: Brent Rose

TomTom’s first running watch was a great first step two years ago. Last year it got even better , with an integrated heart rate monitor.

03-Sep-15   By: Charlie Jane Anders on io9, shared by Chris Mills to Gizmodo

Tonight’s episode of Key & Peele was pretty geeky overall—there was a long sequence about Game of Thrones, which would have been the best bit of any normal episode. But the penultimate Key & Peele also included a fricken brilliant running gag about Neil deGrasse Tyson’s Cosmos.

02-Sep-15   By: Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Annalee Newitz to Gizmodo

The waves of Teahupo’o in Tahiti are so lovely that surfing them is the only way to truly appreciate them. Or, well, I guess watching other people surf through this drone video is a pretty damn good way to see its majestic beauty too. Brent Bielmann and Eric Sterman shot this drone video for Surfing Magazine and it captures angles of surfers and the glassy waves like we never seen them before.

03-Sep-15   By: Chris Mills

Most surveys are written with the intent of finding something out. The XKCD survey, written by stick-cartoonist extraordinaire Randall Munroe, doesn’t have an end game — it’s just trying to collect random information from as many people as possible, and then find unlikely correlations.


A container ship traveling around the ocean at night is one of the most beautiful things
02-Sep-15   By: Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Casey Chan to Gizmodo

I literally gasped in disbelief when I first saw this timelapse by Toby Smith of the Gunhilde Maersk at sea. It goes from Ho Chi Minh City in Vietnam to Ningbo, China and the night scenes are unbelievable. The skies are salted with glittery stars and the lights of the port cities paint the horizon in a sort of ethereal fire and the container ship shines through the sea in an illustrious green and it’s all the most amazing thing to see.

02-Sep-15   By: Katharine Trendacosta on io9, shared by Chris Mills to Gizmodo

In Wire Cutters by Jack Anderson, two mining robots with very different capabilities meet, team up, and fall out over their work’s quantitative way of measuring success. Shouldn’t efficiency count for something?

This video of him, by Anthony Bourdain’s Raw Craft, features his process and it might be the most impressive knife making video I’ve ever seen.


Watch Drunk History Slur Its Way Through An Explanation of the Big Bang Theory
02-Sep-15   By: Cheryl Eddy on io9, shared by Alissa Walker to Gizmodo

Comedy Central’s hilarious Drunk History—a show in which comedians get sloppy-drunk and share historical tales, which then are acted out by sober actors who earnestly lip-sync every slurred line of dialogue—kicked off its third season last night with a little special something for science geeks.

02-Sep-15   By: Sean Hollister

This is the only mushroom in the world that tastes sweet like honey
02-Sep-15   By: Casey Chan on Sploid, shared by Alissa Walker to Gizmodo

In Hungary there is a sweet Hungarian truffle that supposedly tastes like honey. I can’t even begin to imagine how fantastic that is because truffles are already “the diamonds of the kitchen” and honey very well might be nature’s greatest creation, so combining both in one is practically unfair. The truffle is used in dessert because of its sweetness but our friend Malackaraj shows us how to use it elsewhere.

02-Sep-15   By: Alissa Walker

02-Sep-15   By: Shep McAllister, Commerce Team on Deals, shared by Shep McAllister, Commerce Team to Gizmodo

1Password is the best looking password manager on the market , and my one of the few apps I couldn’t live without.
