Kid Cudi, the rapper best known for his hit song "Pursuit of Happiness," has pulled a Beyoncé. On Feb. 24, he released a surprise album, titled Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon, not too unlike a certain diva who released her self-titled work in December 2013.
When most musicians are prepping to release new material, they latch onto any publicity they can get. Music videos, elaborate announcements and tour dates are just a few of many ways artists try to get the word out.

But to be an artist is to be unconventional, and plenty of musicians choose to take more circuitous tracks for promotion. Beyoncé isn't the only artist to surprise release an album, and she won't be the last. Read more...More about Music, Features, Musicians, Beyonce, and Entertainment
As the head of one of the most successful companies on the planet, Apple's Tim Cook is scrutinized perhaps more than any other CEO. Now some of that scrutiny has been focused and edited into a new book called Haunted Empire: Apple After Steve Jobs.
Written by former Wall Street Journal reporter Yukari Iwatani Kane, the book delves into the world of post-Steve Jobs Apple and how Cook runs the company in the face of impossibly high expectations
Kane's former paper published an excerpt of the book on Friday, and the passages reveal a Cook at once calm and composed, yet nevertheless ruthless in his execution on his predecessor's vision Read more...More about Books, Apple, Steve Jobs, Tim Cook, and Media
New research conducted by an Indian high school student could help make visual content online more accessible to color blind users.
Animesh Tripathi, 17, is investigating algorithms that could determine how to most effectively adjust color schemes online. The technology would let color blind users consume content such as videos, images, and charts, which would otherwise be difficult for them to see, more easily.
"Some simple technical changes on the receiving end go a long way in enhancing the visual experience for the color blind," he told Mashable. "Devices tend to have magnifying and color-inversion features for visual problems, however, despite the prevalence of color blindness, there has not been any native, inbuilt feature that can correct visual content at the press of a button."

Created by Hiroshima City University staffer Kazuhiro Taniguchi, the prototype device's interface uses infrared waves to detect when the wearer opens and closes his mouth. Those movements send corresponding command signals back to the device. Conceivably, apps could be created for the device that would let you do things like fetch traffic information or get directions by turning your head or biting downJapan, Japanese, Bluetooth, Mobile Devices, and Tech
Lorde's hit song "Royals" has many renditions on YouTube, but none quite like Bruce Springsteen's. The Boss sang the New Zealand pop star's single Saturday at his concert in Auckland, N.Z. Bruce played it without the band, and he rocked it with an acoustic guitar and harmonica. The video hit YouTube Saturday morning.
The 64-year-old rock icon paid homage to the 17-year-old pop sensation with her song. One may wonder if this Bruce rendition will be as viral as his performance with Jimmy Fallon in January, a Chris-Christie-traffic-jam-scandal take on "Born to Run."

The United States Air Force is upgrading B61 nuclear bombs stationed across Europe. Those upgrades may violate the nation's own nuclear regulations.
The B61 is a Cold War relic built in 1961 but new upgrades would give the bombs an internal guidance system that would make it easier for them to find their mark. The Air Force also wants to add the ability to release different amounts of thermonuclear energy upon impact — 0.3, 5, 10 or 50 kilotons — depending on the target. According to Defense Tech, those upgrades may violate the 2010 Nuclear Posture Review, a U.S. Department of Defense review of the nation's nuclear policies which states that no nuclear weapons can be upgraded in ways that give them new abilities.

If there was a map of the Internet, which country would you call home?
This fascinating map was created by Slovakian student and amateur graphic design artist Martin Vargic, who often goes by the pseudonym Jay Simons, and he left no detail untouched
The map is divided into categorized continents, which are then further detailed with countries. The eastern part of the map is comprised mostly of software companies, such as Microsoft and HP, while the western hemisphere which Vargic refers to as the "New World" is made up of websites and social networks like Facebook and Google
Cities are represented with sub-categories and trends; the iPhone 5 on the Apple sector, and OneDirectionVEVO in the YouTube country, while the countries' capitals are portrayed with the CEO or founder's last name. The country of Mashable, which is nestled between 4chan, Boing Boing , TMZ proudly displays the capital city of Cashmore for our founder and CEO Pete Cashmore Read more...More about Internet, Art, Map, Watercooler, and Pics
One user of the meme-inspired, virtual currency, Dogecoin, could be a future home owner.
Matt Thomspon, 27, is selling his vacation home (not pictured) in Wisconsin for 100 million Dogecoins, or about $135,000. After not receiving any offers for his three-bedroom, two-bathroom home in the northern woods of Sawyer County, Wisc., Thompson decided to accept Dogecoins as a form of payment.
Thompson has used cryptocurrencies — digital mediums of exchange, or virtual currencies — like Bitcoin since 2011, and he started using Dogecoins two days after they were made available online. To his surprise, as a video game and electronics vendor, Dogecoins are actually useful for his business because he can use the cryptocurrency to buy and sell inventory from places like China.

If you haven't had a chance to see all nine of the Academy Awards Best Picture nominees this year, don't worry.
In celebration of the prestige and honor each Oscar statuette represents, we've compiled summaries of each film that's up for the big prize so you don't have to miss out on your office pool.
And with respect to the complicated, emotional and powerful stories told in all of the films, we created the summaries in the language of emoji.
Despite emojis being a universal language, narrating some of the films' plot points required a little creativity. The cute icons tend to lack in things like drug use variety, transportation and other areas of diversity Read more...More about List, Movies, Oscars, Film, and Emoji

UPDATE: March 1, 5:45 p.m. EST: Russian President Vladimir Putin spoke with U.S. President Barack Obama for 90 minutes today regarding the escalating situation in Ukraine.
— Elise Labott (@eliselabottcnn) March 1, 2014
Putin reiterated his concern for the lives of ethnic Russians in the Crimea region of Ukraine, and said that much of the violence in that country was started by "ultra nationalists."
Obama said he is concerned about any plans Russia has for intervention in Ukraine, and a statement released by the White House says the U.S. will suspend its participation in preparatory meetings for the G-8 Summit, the meeting of international leaders that is scheduled to take place from June 4-5 in Sochi, Russia. The U.S. president also warned of the economic damage Russia would be doing to itself if it continues to be aggressive. Read more...More about Russia, Vladimir Putin, Us World, Us, and World
Many video games have been adapted into films, but good video game-film adaptations are few and far between.
But when you think about it, some games are better suited for ongoing television dramas — especially those with a strong sense of place, working with great characters.
Let’s ignore the old Saturday morning standbys such as Mario and Sonic, and imagine which games would capture both eyeballs and awards in the ongoing golden age of television. We need something new to watch now that Breaking Bad is over, right?

In the week leading up to the Academy Awards, we all like to put on our film critic hats and confidently predict which movies will win big.
And while none of us can know for certain which films and actors will take home the evening's major awards, there are indicators that can give us a sense of each film's relative chances. The results of other events during "awards season," such as the Golden Globes, the Screen Actor's Guild Awards and the Producer's Guild Awards, help us get a sense for who has the right momentum leading up to Oscars night.Entertainment, Tv, Film, Oscars, and Academy Awards
When I think back to my first pregnancy nearly a decade ago, I marvel at how different things were back then. Those precious nine months were actually tracked in a book, and not via pregnancy apps. I talked to my friends about morning sickness instead of commiserating with "friends" on forums. Baby gear research was hands-on at big box retailers, instead of buying blindly from positive reviews online.
Fast forward to present-day and baby number three, who in five short months has already been exposed to a world filled to the brim with technology. Whether it’s the Internet radio she loves staring at in the kitchen or the phones she sees her parents holding, there are bright, shiny gadgets all around her.

Jason Bagby has followed extreme storms across the country for over a year. Like many of his fellow storm chasers, Bagby is prolific on Instagram
Modern storm chasing, particularly in the U.S., has seen bouts of rapid expansion since its inception in the 1950s. Popular documentaries and feature films like Twister have inspired meteorologists and adrenaline junkies of generations past to take up the chase, following dangerous supercells across the continent
The sizable storm chasing community on networks like Instagram has helped kick off yet another expansion period. But many aren't taking the necessary precautions Read more...More about Social Media, Weather, Features, Science, and Instagram
The mountain of trouble that has been piling up for Mt. Gox just got even larger
Once the largest Bitcoin exchange in the world, Mt. Gox shut its digital doors and later filed for bankruptcy this week after losing hundreds of millions of dollars worth of its customers' bitcoins. Now the Japan-based company and its French CEO, Mark Karpeles, have been hit with a class-action lawsuit.
Chicago-based law firm Edelson PC filed the suit Thursday in a federal court in Illinois on behalf of one named plaintiff, Gregory Greene, and all other U.S. residents affected by the collapse of Mt. Gox. Greene is said to have lost a trove of bitcoins worth $25,000. Read more...More about Security, Apps Software, World, Bitcoin, and Mt.Gox
