As if the story about Donald Trump and compromising information Russians allegedly have on him couldn t get any crazier, 4chan has added itself to the mix.That s right, 4chan, the infamous bulletin board that s home to much questionable content — including hosting the leaked celebrity nude photos a few years ago, for example — claims that the golden showers story that s included in the supposed Russian dossier on the president-elect of the United States originated on 4chan.CNN reported Tuesday that U.S. intelligence agencies had told Trump that Russians claimed to have kompromat, or personal and financial dirt, on him.BuzzFeed then published the dossier, whose many unsubstantiated memos and claims include a supposed encounter that involved prostitutes, Trump and urine — as well as supposed ties between Trump, his people and Russia.Trump and his camp are calling those claims fake news, with the president-elect tweeting that the release of the allegations was very unfair, and taking aim at U.S. intelligence agencies.Trump also noted that Russia denies having any dirt on him.The Trump defense is being echoed by some Twitter and Reddit users, who are in turn pointing to 4chan s claims that the golden showers tidbit came from the site.From an anonymous post on 4chan on Nov. 1: So they took what I told Rick Wilson and added a Russian spy angle to it.Guys, they re truly expletive desperate — there s no remaining Trump scandal that s credible.In other words, the people decrying unsubstantiated news they are calling fake are fighting it by putting their trust in an anonymous claim on the notorious 4chan.Wilson, a Republican political strategist, tweeted Tuesday that he was not BuzzFeed s source.Wilson told the Daily Beast that the Russian allegations have been making the rounds for a year and a half.In addition, Mother Jones reported on Oct. 31 about the information being given to the FBI, the day before the anonymous post on 4chan.
Nintendo's new, miniature video game console was a hit during the holiday season — so much so that it was sold out most places.That makes a lot of sense: It's a $60 game console packed with 30 of Nintendo's most iconic titles.

When Fossil Group said its brands would launch 100 wearables in 2016, everyone thought the company was completely nuts.After all, if Apple only launches one smartwatch every year, how can Fossil and its brands expect to launch 100?The concept of design being a noteworthy feature that merits its own launch event is entirely foreign.Fossil makes decisions based on color trends, materials, different dial designs, and other fashionable features.After all, wearables go on your body; you wear them publicly, so shouldn t you be proud of the watch you re rocking?So far, Apple and Motorola have come closest in the tech world with their different strap options, casing colors, and personalization options; but neither one holds a candle to Fossil.
We knew they were coming sooner or later, and now ads in Facebook videos seem to be right around the corner.A new report claims that Facebook will soon put mid-roll ads in News Feed videos, splitting the revenue with content creators.This is a big step in Facebook s effort to pull content publishers away from YouTube, though even with ad revenue streaming in for creators, Facebook still has its work cut out for it.Industry sources tell Recode that Facebook will be ready to implement mid-roll ads across the site soon.This strategy stands in stark contrast to pre-roll ads, something which YouTube allows but Facebook does not.While it sounds like a wide range of content creators will be able to put ads in their videos, there are a few exceptions.

Despite launching in the last few months of the year, Nintendo s NES Classic Edition turned out to be one of the hottest devices of 2016.But other than being incredibly hard to find over the holiday season, the only real drawback of the tiny retro game console is that it s limited to the 30 titles that come pre-installed.Fortunately modders and hackers have been hard at work at rectifying that problem, and the latest successful trick manages to add another 30 games over a USB cable.The plug-and-play NES Classic includes a number of the best games from the original Nintendo Entertainment System s library, including Super Mario Bros. 3 and The Legend of Zelda, but with only 30 pre-installed titles, many have been left out.Tinkerers in Japan and Russia, however, have figured out a new soft-mod that adds titles like River City Ransom, Bucky O Hare, and even multiple Mega Man games, without the need for prying the device open or a soldering iron.You can see the modified NES Classic in action in the video below, and the full details on how to pull it off can be found on the NESClassicMods subreddit, but just know that it still requires altering the software, and there is a risk of bricking the device if something goes wrong.
This year s edition of CES demonstrates the massive changes that the laptop market is undergoing.Just a few years ago, 2-in-1 computers were a novelty, a knee-jerk reaction to the growing popularity of tablets and smartphones with touch-screen interfaces.Even Intel was on the bandwagon, as the future of Moore s Law was demonstrated during the company s press conference by way of a 2-in-1with a Cannon Lake processor, the first example of working silicon demonstrated.More: After years of stumbling, 2-in-1 laptops will finally find their stride in 2016Looking at the build-up toward this shift — and the imminent future of this form of hardware — it s not difficult to see why the most prominent names in tech are betting big on 2-in-1s becoming the norm.At release, Windows held the Surface Pro line back.
Elon Musk might be Trump's economic advisor, but energy lobbyists are keen to shut down all US government support for renewable energies and boost the fossil fuel industryReutersElon Musk may be the golden boy of American tech, but he could find himself under fire in 2017 as a policy group funded by the fossil fuel industry is now in a key position to influence Donald Trump into halting government aid for renewable energy projects.Musk's profile has grown in recent years due to his plethora of unique and disruptive innovations that include electric cars, supersonic transport, solar panels and batteries, which all rely on renewable energy in order to push for a more sustainable future.This key stance on trying to move away from dirty power generation resources has earned Musk support and admiration around the world and within the US – but it has also generated opprobrium from those who would rather the fuel industry stay as it is.Some of those who oppose renewable energy have formed groups that mounted a steadily growing campaign of derogatory and defamatory fake news throughout 2016 aimed at condemning Musk.The articles, all written by authors who hide behind aliases, are posted on multiple websites and try to make it seem as if he has been granting the US government favours in order to gain funding and win bids on contracts.
Artificial intelligence is a funny thing, literally.We ve all seen the videos of Google Assistant talking to Siri or Amazon s Alexa having a conversation with itself, but a Twitch stream called Seebotschat is really taking things to the next level with a live feed of two Google Homes engaged in an absolutely hilarious war of words.The bots continually prompt each other with comments, questions, and rebuttals, and the stream even has a text log of the conversation in case you can t understand what they re saying.The responses flow fast and fluidly for the most part, but occasionally one of the Homes glitches out and can t accurately respond.The conversation itself is really a treat, and topics like music, movies, sports, travel, and the meaning of life and love have all been thoroughly discussed by the bots.At one point the two Homes even began flirting, calling each other gorgeous and sharing intimate details about themselves.
