The 9 Best Star Wars Moments of 2019

Star Wars has dominated much of the pop culture landscape in the past several years, but 2019 was ridiculous. With one saga of films ending, a whole new era of TV starting, the hype leading to both, and then all matter of other media, there’s a chance we’ll never have as much Star Wars as 2019 provided.

The Absolute Worst Tech of 2019

Gadgets have to work a lot harder to suck in 2019 than they have in years past. They have to bankrupt companies, reveal our data, or be so overpriced they even make Apple look cheap. The gadget below did all that, but some went even further. Some were pointless Skymall dreck, and some nearly ruined much nicer and better gadgets. Read More >>

The 11 Best Gadgets of 2019 to Get You Excited About 2020

We’re in a pretty stable place right now when it comes to gadgets. For the most part, we’re currently stuck in a cycle of continuous, minute iterations to the same ol’ tech and it’s hard to get excited about that.

Yes, there were disasters this year – one of the products on this list even started out as such! That said, these are some of the very best gadgets of 2019. You might disagree, but you would be wrong. Read More >>

The Worst-Reported Science Stories of 2017

It’s really not that hard to write a science news story, I promise. Some new scientific results come out, you talk to a scientist on the phone and ask them what they did, then you ask a few other people who know about the research if the results made sense.
