‘No Country for Old Men’ Trailer Recreated Shot-for-Shot in GTA V

No Country for Old Men Trailer GTA V

Two months after launch, that new car smell of Grand Theft Auto V on PC has begun to fade, but there's still one PC-exclusive feature that is providing creators with countless hours of entertainment: the Rockstar Editor.

We've talked about the in-game video editor in the past, most recently when we found the Full House credits faithfully remade within the world of Los Santos, but this latest discovery might even trump the classic '90s sitcom.

Tonight Venus and Jupiter Will Be Closer Than They’ve Been In 24 Years 

Astronomical conjunctions occur when celestial objects appear close to one another in the night sky—this happens all the time and they’re not particularly unusual. But a conjunction happening tonight is notable in that it involves two very bright planets—Venus and Jupiter—and they’ll be closer together than they’ve been in 24 years.

How Working a 9-5 Office Job Is Probably Killing You

Office Job Health

Every day, millions of workers around the globe reluctantly wake up to their alarm clocks, hit snooze repeatedly, and sleepily head into work where they effectively sit motionless for 8 hours. Sure, everyone has to earn a living, but the monotony of the ole' 9-5, coupled with the stress and horrible lifestyle habits that tend to accompany an office job can literally take years off of your life.

Mark Zuckerberg Finally Weighed in on Facebook’s “Real Name” Problem

The fervor over the Supreme Court’s gay marriage decision is starting to wane across social media, and the rainbow avatars are starting to fade. As such, it’s easy to forget about Facebook’s problem with how it treats some LGBT users. Today, Mark Zuckerberg made his first public statement on the issue, but he didn’t really provide a good answer.

Slow motion video of a 142mph tennis serve shows the ball turning to goo

A tennis ball is squishy and bouncy and totally perfect for slow motion fun. Watch as a tennis racket hits the fuzzy yellow green ball at 142mph in slow motion, it’s incredible. The more you slow it down, the more flattened and deformed and goo-like the ball gets. At a certain point, it looks like the ball has just been absorbed and eaten alive by the tennis racket.

Hands-on with Apple Music (Video)

apple music.00_00_11_24.Still011

Today we’re taking a quick look at Apple Music. This new service came along with the iOS 8.4 update and effectively merges Beats Music with a new streaming service from Apple. The good news is, Apple Music will also be available for Android and Apple TV as well later this fall. Everyone also gets a 3 month free trial in case you’re on the fence about subscribing to the service right away…

The update brings along a refreshed Music app icon and this is where you’ll find Apple Music along with the music you’ve purchased through iTunes. Inside of the app we have a new layout with different tabs and organization. When you first sign up for Apple Music, you’ll be prompted to choose different genres and artists that you like. This will begin curating playlists and albums for streaming based on your interests.

The first tab at the bottom is where you’ll find music “for you.” These playlists, artists, and albums are available to stream instantly, add to your music library, and even save for offline playback. If you’d like to find other artists available on Apple Music or within your music library, you can tap on the search icon in the top right corner and type in an artist, song, or album name.

Next up, we have the “new” tab which will likely be similar for everyone using the app. This presents artists and albums new to Apple Music and can be streamed or saved to your library.

Check out our Apple Music hands-on video below:

In the middle, there’s a “radio” tab. This is basically what iTunes Radio should have been from the beginning. At the moment, the top banner showcases Beats 1 Radio which is a live station that has different scheduled events throughout the day. By tapping on this station you can see the current DJ lineup and featured shows that air on this station. The other stations available are pretty straight forward though. Tap on a station and it will begin playing content based on the title.

The fourth tab is called “connect” and works as somewhat of a social network for Apple Music. This allows you to follow various artists and see what’s happening in a single stream. You have the ability to like posts and comment on them with others that are into that artist as well. By default, Apple Music will follow artists it finds within your music library, but you can easily follow new artists through their personal pages or access them through a specific album.

Finally, we have the “My Music” section. This is exactly what you’d expect. It combines the music you’ve purchased through iTunes as well as the music you’ve added to your library from Apple Music. At the top, there are two tabs that allow you to switch between your library and your playlists.

Apple Music is exactly what I’ve been waiting for and I’m looking forward to its release on Apple TV and Android in the near future. If you’d like to sign up for Apple Music after the free trial has ended, it will run you $9.99 per month for an individual or $14.99 per month for a family of up to 6 members with individual accounts and listening preferences. It seems like a pretty good deal to me, but let us know what you think about Apple Music in the comment section below.
