    Good Guy Samsung Sent Me a New Battery After Giving Me a Crappy One at SXSW

    This isn't sponsored content or an ad. I'm just excited, surprised, and grateful that it happened. After giving me a dud of a battery at SXSW, Samsung mailed me a new one with some extras to make up for it. I complain online when companies screw me, so it's only fair I call one out when they do something great like this.

    SXSW Tech Panel Promises That “Wearable Tech” Underwear Is the New Hotness

    Grab your no. 2 pencils and Texas Instruments! NASA announced today that they will be awarding $35,000 in prizes between now and August to civilians who develop asteroid-detecting algorithms.
