When is GeForce Now not GeForce Now? When it’s GeForce Now for PCs. We should’ve seen this coming when the beastly Titan X was succeeded by, uh, the Titan X —a completely new graphics card with the same olname. Nvidia’s following in the footsteps of Apple by sticking with a single designation for its flagship products. But with GeForce Now, it’s wading into Microsoft’s frustrating territory by giving two very different services the exact same name.

On May 5 of that year the Mexican army defeated the French army in the city of Puebla. Within five years the French no longer occupied Mexico. Mexican Independence Day is on September 16, by the way. It celebrates the start of the Mexican War of Independence against Spain in 1810. 10. NEW YEAR'S DAY IS THE MOST UNSAFE DAY TO DRIVE. A lot of people in the U.S. think that New Year's is the most risky time to drive because there are more inebriated drivers on the road, and of course you should always be safe on the road and never drink and drive, but roads are typically more dangerous during summer holidays like the 4th of July and Memorial Day. Thanks for watching Misconceptions on Mental_Floss video. If you have a topic for an upcoming Misconceptions episode that you would like to see, leave it in the comments. Also, apologies to the season of summer for giving it a bad rap in this video. And I'll see you next week. I'm gonna go, uh, I'm gonna go change.

We're sorry to say that this guy did not have a great day at work on Thursday. During Nintendo's press conference announcing its new console, the Nintendo Switch , one translator had a bit of trouble keeping up with the CEO of Grasshopper Manufacture Inc., Suda 51. There are some cringingly awkward pauses, long periods of silence, and plenty of uh's. He might've been thrown off by the CEO's startling entrance because, TBH, we were too.

Featured in the gameplay reveal was a multitude of new worlds to run, jump, and vault through with various aesthetics and styles, such as a lush forest setting to an urban jungle populated by what seems to be a more realistic, mundane world than that of the fantastical Mushroom Kingdom. Also, Marios trademark red cap seems to have become sentient, having grown a pair of eyes and gained the ability to fly out in place to offer Mario an extra surface to jump from. So, uh, theres that. Following a weak turnout of third-party support during the Wii U cycle, we wondered if Nintendo would be on their own for churn out software for their shiny new system. Thankfully, the company wasnt left alone on stage as industry leaders came out to pledge support for the Switch - to include representatives at Electronic Arts, who infamous began to snub the Wii U after the market started to decline.

If you're like me, you grew up watching 8-year-old Kevin McCallister effortlessly thwart a violent home burglary after being forgotten and left behind by his vacation-bound family. Surprisingly, it was a heartwarming tale. However, if you're also like me, you also grew up wondering how Harry nonchalantly takes a crowbar to the chest and doesn't wake up in the morgue the next day. Or how Old Man Marley knocks the Wet Bandits unconscious with a metal shovel and they both manage to live on to appear in the sequel. Well there's some good news: you no longer have to live in blissful ignorance. YouTube user BitMassive has reimagined the film with blood and needless to say, it's uh...much shorter. Read more...

2016 has been quite the, uh, interesting year (to say the least)—so to commemorate this year full of fascinating and shocking news, over the next week we'll be looking at several different hot topics in design over the past year. Through our Year in Review series, we'll highlight some of our favorite ideas, stories, projects and moments that took place this year on Core77. To start things off, here's what you, our Core77 audience, deemed the most interesting and exciting news of 2016. 1. Ikea to Begin Selling a Chain-less Bicycle Ikea's bike venture that resulted in creating a chain-less bicycle had us all in awe this year and ready to give the maintenance-free product a test ride! 2. "McMansion Hell" Websites Tears the Architectural Style Apart Before this year, I'm sure we were all familiar with the concept of McMansions, but thankfully 2016 granted us with "McMansion Hell" , which hilariously breaks down everything that is wrong with the architecture going on in these monstrosities.

Why do epic car chases always happen in slow motion? You wont get the answer to that, but the trope will at least be addressed in the latest amusing campaign for Smart car. Created by BBDO Berlin and directed by MJZs Perlorian Brothers, the ads tear a page out of the post-war Volkswagen playbook, positioning Smarts quirkiness as a feature, not a bug (pun!). Each spot kicks off with a car-based movie cliché, whose suspension of disbelief is broken when a Smart car pulls up alongside it. Epic, for example, takes on the classic car chase. As the pursuing cops are frozen mid-arc, a Smart driver pulls up and asks what their deal is. Epic car chases are always done in slow motion! one cop insists. Uh-huh, the Smart driver says, considering this. Thats a bit cliché. And unbound by the laws that bind his brothers in blue, he wheels off for a donut.

S. VP Dick Cheney recently sat down with Former Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and CNN's Barbara Starr at the Reagan Library, and said something horrifying to the mainstream media and the globalists. Love him or hate him...... the truth is the truth. Starr asked Cheney about the language of President-elect Trump's tweets and after answering her Cheney stated I think one of the reasons people get so concerned about the tweets is it is sort of a way around the press. He doesn't have to rely upon, uh, rely upon this is the modern era, modern technology. He's at the point where we don't need you guys anymore. The laughter from the audience is clearly heard... but nothing from CNN's Starr, because those are the words the global elite and the MSM are all terrified of... because they are the truth. That comment comes at the 3:20 minute mark in the clip below: BOTTOM LINE The mainstream media and their fake news, along with their fake polls, using skewed demographics intended to create an illusion meant to influence the public, has failed, and with it they took the last thing propping up globalism and touting it as the way forward, in an attempt to create a New World Order.

Uh oh, overflow, population, common group but it’ll do. Save yourself, serve yourself, world serves its own needs, listen to your heart bleed, dummy, with the rapture and the reverent and the right, right. You’re vitriolic, patriotic, slam, fight, bright light. Feeling pretty psyched for this then folks? The Scottish poet Mick Imlah said sport matters because it doesnt matter, and what better distraction from anything else that might be going on right now than this: a five-match series, in the most testing of touring conditions, and against a team that isnt Australia to boot! England’s bright, brash, up-and-coming team of fiery youngsters go to take on the world’s No1 Test team in their own backyard. England have won the last three series between these two sides but must bounce back from a disappointing result in Bangladesh, against a side that’s presently looking near-unbeatable at home.

It's Election Day, so Donald Trump only has a few more chances to let the nation know which of his children he likes the least. Calling in to Fox & Friends , the Republican nominee spoke about how proud he is of his adult children. Most of them, at least. "I'm very proud of my children. I mean, I'm just looking at them right now as an example... but I'm very proud 'cause Don and Eric and Ivanka and, you know, to a lesser extent 'cause she just got out of school, out of college, but, uh, Tiffany, who's also been so terrific. I mean, they work so hard." Did Trump have to say he's less proud of Tiffany? Of course not. Would it be Election Day if he didn't? No. No it would not. Read more...

Alan Martin 5 min 15 sec ago Microsoft Its been three years since Steve Ballmer left Microsoft, handing over to Satya Nadella. Despite describing his successes and failures at the company as “ancient history” in an interview with Bloomberg’s Emily Chang , he does reveal some interesting thoughts on his time at the home of Windows, Xbox and, uh, Clippy. “I probably did some of my very best work at the company after Bill left,” Ballmer tells Chang, citing Bing (“that’s really where we got into the cloud”), Office 365, Azure and Surface as key moments in his spell as CEO. There were some hints of a somewhat strained relationship between him and Gates however. “When I became CEO we had a very miserable year," admits Ballmer. "Bill didn't know how to work for anybody, and I didn't know how to manage Bill. I'm not sure I ever learned the latter,” Ballmer explains.
