    Major League Baseball doesn’t market its individual players as much as leagues like the NBA and NFL, so a lot of people might not have heard of Mike Trout. But he’s been arguably the best player in baseball for over five years, and now he’s the highest-paid athlete in the country. Trout, 27, is set to sign a contract extension that will pay him a total of over $430 million until he’s 39 years old. Born in New Jersey, Trout was picked by the Angels in the first round in 2009. He was AL rookie of the year in 2012...

    After months of rumors, speculation, and some recent teases from the company itself, Google finally unveiled its big gaming announcement during a Game Developers Conference keynote in San Francisco. Rather than a console, however, Google revealed Stadia, a cloud gaming platform that allows users to stream games to any device. The GDC 2019 presentation showcased what it's capable of, as well as the controller Google has designed for it, the first-party developer it's established, and much more.

    A man, while playing on the front nine of a complicated golf course, became confused as to where he was on the course. Looking around, he saw a lady playing ahead of him. He walked up to her, explained his confusion and asked her if she knew what hole he was playing She replied, "I'm on the 7th hole, and you are a hole behind me, so you must be on the 6th hole." He thanked her and went back to his golf. On the back nine the same thing happened; and he approached her again with the same request....

    No more partying like it's 2003-2015 on the social network that was once the biggest site in the US. MySpace may have lost your digital memories in a server migration. "As a result of a server migration project, any photos, videos, and audio files you uploaded more than three years ago may no longer be available on or from Myspace," it said in a note at the top of the site.

  • 19-years-old WinRAR vulnerability leads to over 100 malware exploits (Update Now!)

    SlashGear ^ | Mar 16, 2019 | Adam Westlake
    After being a staple on PCs for so many years, last month it was discovered that WinRAR, software used to open .zip archive files, has been vulnerable for the last 19 years to a bug that’s easily exploited by hackers and malware distributors. Fortunately, the software has been patched with the recent release of version 5.70, but after being unchecked for so long and installed by so many people, a new wave of malware is taking advantage. Check Point, the security researchers that revealed the WinRAR bug, explain that the software is exploited by giving malicious files a RAR extension,...

    We spent more than 150 hours on in-depth testing to identify the top inkjet and laser printers you can buy. And our favorite overall printer is the Canon Pixma TS9120, which offers best-in-class print speeds and high-quality output for both text and graphics. For a printer that won't break the bank, Epson's WorkForce WF-2760 inkjet packs in features like an automatic document feeder and duplexing, while also turning in fast print and copy times. What All-in-One Printers Cost All-in-one printers sell for as little as $60 (£45/AU$90) for inkjet models, and $150 (£170/AU$200) for laser printers, with high-end models ranging...

    Install. Uninstall. Boot. Repeat Microsoft has quietly updated a support document to let us know that Windows 10 will have a crack at uninstalling borked updates – just in time for patch Tuesday.Windows 10 endures enjoys a near constant stream of updates and patches to, as Microsoft put it, "keep your device secure and running at peak efficiency". This is all well and good, but as a significant section of customers would agree, things sometimes go wrong and a hasty uninstall is required.Microsoft has therefore tweaked Windows 10 to spot a recovery from a failed startup (after all, a reboot...

  • The C8 Corvette Is So Powerful It Keeps Bending Its Frame, Report Claims

    The Drive ^ | March 12th, 2019 | James Gilboy
    Several alleged reveal dates for the eighth-generation "C8" Chevrolet Corvette have come and gone, and a new report claims that this has been due to design problems delaying the new model's launch. These complications have apparently been so major, in fact, they're causing damage to the car's frame and glass engine cover due to too much power for the chassis. Rumors claimed that the C8 was scheduled for launch at Detroit's North American International Auto Show in January, then the Geneva Motor Show in March, both of which have come to pass without a new Corvette. Citing "well-placed sources," Hagerty...

    The Blue Press ^ | April, 2019 | Alan Korwin
    Officials promoting so-called "red-flag laws" should be evaluated for fitness to serve. Why? Because their so called "extreme protection orders" are blatant constitutional violations and have no place in an American system of justice. This much is obvious. Empowering your neighbors, roommates, former lovers, relatives or people who have a grudge against you to use armed police to attack you, without warning or probable cause, does you serious criminal harm and must be stopped cold. Encouraging the public to "red flag" each other is what dictators did in the Soviet Union, communist China and elsewhere. Leftist sympathizers in America are...
