Apple's new Macbook doesn't just give feels, it requires them.
Announcing a new line of Macbooks today, Apple introduced the world to the Touch Bar, a digital interface that lives at the top of the keyboard, replacing the function keys. The Touch Bar gives users a whole new range of control on things like video editing, audio recording, and sending emojis.

Will googly eyes become the most effective political attack of the 2016 election? We'll find out on November 8.
Sometimes it seems like those who write the Jeopardy answers are looking to embarrass longtime host, Alex Trebek. Last night, an answer required Alex Trebek to rap Drake's "Jumpboy". Needless to say, we probably won't be hearing a collaboration between these two Candian powerhouses any time soon.
Vine, the micro vlogging app, which allowed users to record and share short bursts of insanity, is no more. In a statement from Twitter, who owns Vine, this morning, the company announced that they would be shutting down the popular app, reducing the runtime of a typical Vine from six seconds to zero seconds.
“Since 2013, millions of people have turned to Vine to laugh at loops and see creativity unfold,” said Twitter. “Today, we are sharing the news that in the coming months we’ll be discontinuing the mobile app.”
Easing fears about the future of user content, Twitter has made it clear that the site would remain active, so previous content could be found, shared, watched, etc. So there’s no need to start exporting your Vines and importing them to Instagram just yet.
The announcement comes on the heels of Twitter announcing significant layoffs, firing 9 percent of its workforce.
Nothing will be happening to the site today, so continue Vining away. As for the rest of us, let’s relive the magic that was Vine in 2016 and fall in love all over again.
The joke of the tech world for the last month has been "how long will it take for you to lose Apple's new, completely wireless AirPod earbuds?" Well, it looks like Apple lost them sooner than we expected.
"Early response to AirPods has been incredible," Apple said in a statement released yesterday. "We don't believe in shipping a product before it's ready, and we need a little more time before AirPods are ready for our customers."
The company has not announced a new release date.
If you could, what would you change your name to? Max? Sara? Lou Diamond Philips?
One New Zealand man stepped up to the plate and hit a home run. He changed his name to "Mc Lovin."
That's right, taking a cue from the movie Superbad, the man formerly known as Gary Fisher became Mc Lovin — that's first name "Mc," last name "Lovin" — following the sudden death of a close friend, which sent him into a deep depression. He says that the name serves as a reminder to not take life so seriously.
Mc Lovin wasn't his first choice, though. — another option included "Skeletor Overlord Evil." But that's really only worth it if you're willing to go through four years of medical school to become Dr. Evil.
The name change has been a positive experience. Lovin's mother thought the new name was hilarious, as did a police officer who pulled Lovin over and asked to take a picture of his license. Things seem to be going pretty well for Mr. Lovin — certainly better than they went for the last guy who changed his name to McLovin.
As the wave of nostalgia continues to plague our culture, yet another beloved property is getting the old reboot: Jim Henson's Muppet Babies. This ain't your father's Muppet Babies, though. Muppet Babies will feature a new, 100% computer-generated look for Kermit, Miss Piggy, Fozzy, and the rest. No word yet as to whether or not Nanny and her infamous green and white stripped stockings will be 100% computer generated.
Oh, also, the characters look absolutely terrifying.
