If you own a $300,000 coupe, Rolls-Royce is guessing that you don't want to be seen with Samsonite luggage in the boot. It may be right; I'll never be rich enough to know. But maybe you will be, in which case you'll want to know about these bags that Rolls has designed to complement the Wraith.
I don't know much about luggage, but these things look expensive. They were designed in-house by Rolls-Royce's Bespoke team — the people who customize clients' cars, often at extraordinary expense — and, in fact, the bags themselves can be customized to whatever insane specification your budget allows. Want them covered in diamonds? Rolls can probably make that happen, if the price is right.
In your mind's eye, picture a sedan in the Tron universe. What are you imagining? Something akin to a scaled-up light cycle, I'm guessing?
Yeah, this isn't that.
Introduced at the Beijing auto show last week, Chevrolet's Tron: Legacy Cruze show car is, for lack of a better description, just a Cruze with some glowing blue lines slapped on it. The theme carries over to the interior, which has Tron blue across the seats and dashboard, accompanied by special blue lighting.
That's it. Oh, there are blue taillights, which obviously wouldn't be legal in the real world (maybe in the Tron world — I don't know how the Department of Transportation operates there). So, why now, half a decade after the movie's release? The car was designed in...
See that great big flat-screen television hanging on the wall in your living room? It was a great purchase and the picture quality is fantastic, but doesn't it look a little bit lonely? Finding the right TV is only the start of putting together a good viewing experience. You still need a solid surround sound system, and you still need a Blu-ray player as well.

Sergio Marchionne, one of the most interesting and pragmatic automotive executives in the world, became the new CEO of Ferrari today. What does it mean for the storied brand? Change is coming.
The CEOs of big corporations are usually well-polished PR machines who never deviate from the script. In many ways, they're really kind of boring. Then there are CEOs of big corporations who are fantastically frank and make the job of a journalist much more fun because they cut through the bullshit and tell you what they're actually thinking.
He's not afraid to tell you what he thinks
Sergio Marchionne, who is also the CEO of Fiat Chrysler (and mastermind of the deal that brought those two companies together), is the latter. He's not afraid to...
When I first saw Star Wars: The Force Awakens, I was a little confused by that last scene. Why was Luke Skywalker just hanging out by himself on that rock looking out at the sea? How long had he been standing there? And for the love of all that's holy, why didn't he say something... anything?!
Lost bags may be a thing of the past for passengers flying on Delta later this year. The airline announced plans to introduce RFID luggage tags at 344 airports by the end of August that could essentially bring an end to misplaced and lost luggage for Delta passengers.
When pop historians look back at Drake’s career, they’ll see 2015 as the year in which he transformed from a garden-variety pop star into an all-around cultural force. His surprise mixtape (If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late) became one of the year’s most popular albums, and his biggest hit ever was a SoundCloud throwaway. He buried damaging accusations about his writing process with two perfectly timed diss tracks and a barrage of memes. He became the face of Apple’s booming music division with a WWDC appearance, a radio show, and a handful of exclusive releases.
It’s the kind of success that should be impossible to protest, but something about it feels sour. The music he released was paranoid, icy, aggressive, and unusually...
Wouldn't it be funny if you could bombard your friends with out-of-context lines of dialogue from the hit '90s TV show Seinfeld? You know, that one that is woefully dated and — like many other sitcoms from that era — is pretty problematic in hindsight? Well now you can!
SeinText is kind of like a chat bot that will, for varying amounts of money, text Seinfeld quotes to any phone number of your choosing over the course of three, five, seven, or even 24 hours. It was created by the same guys that made "KanyeText" earlier this year, and it's like sliding into someone's DMs, except somehow more pointless and obtrusive. SeinText is far from the first service to do this — there's a plethora of similar web and phone apps, all of which make the...
Not a lot of people know this, but kangaroos are diabolical creatures with the minds of disgruntled toddlers and the bodies of Zac Efron in the upcoming Baywatch movie. "Wow, harsh words, Dami!" You may be thinking. But I've always known the truth and I am glad that it's finally coming to light. Don't believe me? Just look at all the evidence.
Exhibit A: This video uploaded by Cat Karskens, already shared by 18,000 people, all of whom now understand that kangaroos are indignant malignant spirits easily confused by glass doors:

A Space Jam sequel is happening with LeBron James as its star, with repeat Fast & Furious director Justin Lin directing. The Hollywood Reporter and Variety are reporting the news this afternoon, saying that talks are in place to make the film happen after years of speculation that James would star in a sequel. The original Space Jam was released in 1996.
There are basically no details beyond that the film is starting to move forward. A screenwriter is attached, but there's no word on when Lin hopes to begin filming or have the picture in theaters. It sounds as though most details of the picture still have to be worked out. But whatever. A new Space Jam with James and Lin sounds amazing, so let's just sit with that for a while.
A court order is about to cut off WhatsApp service in Brazil for three days, according to a report from O Globo. First announced on April 26th, the order was scheduled to take effect at 1PM ET today. That measure is the result of a failed 2013 access order from a branch of civil police that investigates criminal activity online. Because of the app's encryption system, messages on WhatsApp are typically inaccessible to outside actors, so it is unlikely that the company could have complied with the court order.
The order specifically targets Brazil's five central wireless carriers, which are forbidden from transmitting WhatsApp data for the duration of the blackout period. Any carriers found violating that order will be fined 500,000...
