Reddit is, as you probably know, one of the internet's biggest websites, drawing in over 18 million visitors a month. With so many visitors, you are bound to get some bad apples; but reddit has a bigger problem with this than you might expect.
Following Microsoft's countdown to unveiling the next Xbox unveiled next month, it's fair to say speculation has been rather wild lately. But none have sent gamers into more of a recent frenzy than two different images that suggest this next generation console will either be called "Xbox Infinity," or simply "Xbox."
A Reddit user uploaded an image on Quickmeme, saying “My sister had an abusive meth addict boyfriend/I killed him with his own drugs while he was unconscious and they ruled it as an overdose." Of course, as it is the internet (especially Reddit), these things have to be taken with a pinch of salt; but as the story unfolds it would be fair to assume that somebody has committed a murder and confessed to it via a meme.
Many impressive Minecraft creations have appeared since release; but none quite as mindblowing as Westeroscraft. A team of 100 people have painstakingly worked over 4 months to recreate the entire Westeros continent from George R. R. Martin's fantasy world, including the capital of King's Landing.
It's fair to say that a 3D Pokemon game for home consoles has been at the top of fans' lists ever since the original released. This isn't quite the game you've dreamt of; but it's the entire universe of Pokemon Gold/Silver, ready to be explored in all three dimensions.
Reddit user Builderboy2005 has created his own version Portal for use on Texas Instruments graphing calculators (the TI-83 and TI-84 specifically). While we have seen past works of porting video games to calculators, it's especially amazing to see the space-warping mechanics of Valve's hit game working on these devices.
We've all come across our fair share of broken or malfunctioning electronic products, no doubt, but never has it crossed my mind at least exactly how such consumables come to be in that state. If you've ever bought an iPad from a Walmart store in Pikeville, KY however, then you likely now have ammunition to form an educated guess...
The bidding for 'A piece of cardboard (shaped a bit like an iPhone 5)- USED' has been stopped at £200,100 by eBay. The product was removed on the grounds of 'false advertising' (surrounding calling it an iPhone 5); but has been claimed as a charity effort by supporter Julia McGill on her Just Giving page.
