Miller, who will be playing Deadpool's best friend Weasel in the movie, recently revealed to IGN that there were some jokes that were actually cut from the movie for being too raunchy. Warning: Not safe-for-work language to follow.

James Franco is turning the epic 'Zola' tweetstorm into a movie

The verge - vr, 02/05/2016 - 00:11

Professional weirdo James Franco is taking one of the greatest narrative moments in Twitter history and turning it into his next project. Deadline is reporting that Franco is heading up an adaptation of Zola Tells All: The Real Story Behind the Greatest Stripper Saga Ever Tweeted. The original story was written by Rolling Stone's David Kushner, and it details Aziah "Zola" Wellsinsane trip to Florida for a stripping gig that quickly went south. Zola gets caught up in a web of violence, prostitution, betrayal, and kidnapping; she still finds time to relax by the pool. ("I mean, I am in Florida!") You can read the whole thing here; it's worth your time, I promise.

There are still plenty of unknowns swirling around the project, but Franco...

Scientists may have found a way to destroy the bedbug

BGR - do, 02/04/2016 - 23:50

Scientists have for the first time sequenced the genome of New York City bed bugs, a project that could one day offer a way to contain one of the world’s most hated insects.

One group of researchers, in a Nature Communications study, found that genes in the bedbug, Cimex lectularius, are expressed the most after it feeds on blood for the first time. The group, led by the American Museum of Natural History’s Jeffrey Rosenfeld, also compared bed bug DNA from every New York subway station and found those from different parts of the city had different genetic makeups.

Apple, Google, and Amazon reportedly want to stream NFL games

The verge - do, 02/04/2016 - 23:31

The NFL wants to sell streaming rights for Thursday Night Football, and Apple, Google, and Amazon are apparently among the expected bidders. Variety reports that the NFL believes all three of those tech giants will soon try to acquire Thursday Night Football's streaming rights, though it sounds like none have done so just yet. Still, it follows that Apple and Google would be interested — Reuters previously reported that both were in discussions for the three NFL games being played in London next season, so it makes sense that they'd want what is by far a more attractive package of games. Amazon's name is newly in the mix, likely as it looks for new perks to add to Prime.

Thursday Night Football games will be broadcast by NBC and CBS for...

Apple TV's universal search now works with Fox, FX, and National Geographic

The verge - do, 02/04/2016 - 23:27

Universal search, one of the most talked-about upgrades in the latest Apple TV, is getting a little better, as Apple expands the lineup for apps it can search through. It's good news for X-Files or nature documentary watchers: Mac Rumors reports that users can now use search and Siri commands to scan for content across Fox Now, FXNow, and NatGeo TV.

When the fourth-generation Apple TV launched, it included universal search compatibility for iTunes, Netflix, Hulu, HBO, and Showtime. In January, that list was expanded to include PBS and PBS Kids, Mac Rumors reports. Apple has promised to bring more services to the feature over time.

Louis C.K. wants you to know making TV is really expensive

The verge - do, 02/04/2016 - 23:18

Have you watched Louis C.K.'s new TV show yet? The prolific comedian surprised his fans over the weekend by releasing the first episode of Horace and Pete, a new multi-camera comedy set in an Irish bar that's available on his website. The early response has been positive, but some people are up in arms regarding the episode's price: it costs $5, more than a typical standalone TV episode and on par with C.K.'s straight-to-consumer stand-up specials. He addressed the blowback in a lengthy email sent to his mailing list this afternoon. "The dirty unmovable fact is that this show is fucking expensive," writes C.K. "I'm leaving the first episode at $5. I'm lowering the next episode to $2 and the rest will be $3 after that. I hope you feel...

The Apple Watch can tell time and nobody cares

BGR - do, 02/04/2016 - 23:15

Another Apple earnings report is in the books and we still have no clue as to how well the Apple Watch is selling, a notable curiosity given Apple's affinity for sales figures. In typical fashion, Tim Cook last week described the Apple Watch in broad strokes, simply stating that sales during the company's 2015 holiday quarter set an all-time sales record. Encouraging? Sure, but without any additional information about previous sales figures, a record-breaking quarter doesn't really tell us a whole lot about its overall popularity.

The takeaway here, I think, is that the Apple Watch is doing well, but not so well as to warrant the release of specific sales figures. Admittedly, this is hardly a controversial or original sentiment. Nonetheless, a looming question remains - will the Apple Watch forever be marked with the 'accessory' label, or might it someday become a sweeping global phenomenon and impressive money maker a'la the iPod?

President Obama wants to fund trains and self-driving cars with a new oil tax

The verge - do, 02/04/2016 - 22:49

President Barack Obama has refreshingly made the future of transportation a hallmark of his final year in office. Today, he announced his plan to take those efforts a step further by including $300 billion worth of investments in mass transit, autonomous vehicles, clean energy, and high-speed rail in his soon-to-be-released budget. And to pay for it, he is calling for a $10-per-barrel tax on oil, a proposal that has effectively zero chance of passing the Republican-controlled Congress.

It's a bummer that the president's plan is dead on arrival, because taxing oil at $10-a-barrel would help make up for the fact that neither Congress nor Obama insisted on paying for the recently passed five-year, $305 billion infrastructure spending bill...

Apple will soon let customers trade in busted iPhones toward a new one

The verge - do, 02/04/2016 - 22:29

Apple's been running an iPhone trade-in program for some time now, which is different than the iPhone Upgrade Program that the company launched last year. With the former, customers can hand over their old iPhone (or any smartphone) to Apple and receive a gift card that they can spend on a newer iPhone. Currently, Apple doesn't allow you to trade in an iPhone with a cracked screen or significant damage elsewhere — like the camera. But according to 9to5Mac, that's not going to be the case for much longer.

Beginning this week, Apple will reportedly begin accepting iPhones with a broken display, camera, or buttons. The report notes that damage must be considered "within reason," so if your phone has been run over by a truck or tossed off a...
