1. This sucks, cause I really liked Brian Williams, and still kinda do, despite the fact that he's basically a liar. 

2. I'm sure there's some clause in there about breach of contract, which NBC would likely try to claim here

3. I like that Politico's Mike Allen says "...NBC is hoping Williams will resign and "save the expense". That's ridiculous - why on earth would Williams voluntarily throw away ~$20-30m, especially considering this might very well be the end of his career? One can live quite comfortably on $20-30m. 
If NBC wants Brian Williams gone, it's going to have to pay.

This makes me sooooooo happy. 

1) THERE'S GOING TO BE ANOTHER TRON MOVIE!!!

2) Who doesn't want to see more of Olivia Wilde?

3) I thought Hedlund did a pretty good job, personally. 
We're all still pretty baffled about the existence of Tron 3, but it sounds like they're getting the band back together. Olivia Wilde, Garrett Hedlund will join director Joseph Kosinski yet again to make another Tron movie.

YES. I've wanted a Chrome-powered tablet/hybrid for a while now. This seems to be getting closer. 

+Kevin Tofel I assume you've had one of these for a few weeks/days now. How is it?
Most Chromebooks on the market are pretty similar — they’re inexpensive, 11-inch laptops meant for doing basic tasks. But Google and its OEM partners are slowly starting to expand the definition of...

Yes, I like this but no, I haven't used one. I got a heads up on these from Google just a few hours prior to the news so I suspect devices only just got previewed today.

This is pretty cool, and a great use for local police stations (how many people even know where their local station is?). I've always used the mall food court for my Craigslist transactions, for a number of reasons:

1. There's usually at least a rent-a-cop around keeping an eye on things
2. There's lots of people/witnesses
3. I can arrive and depart without the other person seeing my personal vehicle. 
Craigslist is a great place to find inexpensive stuff, but it can also be dangerous. To combat crimes, police departments across the country are offering “safe zones” for Craigslist transactions.

I really hope you didn't need a Mashable article to tell you buying breast milk off the Internet. 
Breast milk may seem like a pure substance, but buying it online from unregulated sellers can be dangerous — or even deadly.

This is basically how I used to do it, too. 

The real frustrating part was trying to GET the review units. Eventually, I was able to build relationships with some key PR folks, but sometimes, it was literally pulling teeth. And yes, you never knew how the next phone would arrive.

A new profile of Russell Crowe reveals that the Aussie actor had a bizarrely antagonistic relationship with the king of pop, Michael Jackson.

What a breathtaking picture, and so striking with the lone figure there.
 
Who knew Cape Cod would be so dark?

Last week, +Christopher Georgia and I made the 3 1/2 hour drive down to Cape Cod, praying an area he had looked at on Google Earth would be worth the trip. The area we wanted to shoot at required about a 1 1/2 mile walk through the dunes, but walking out all we could see were stars! There's nothing like gambling on a spot and having it work out.

I shot this photo of Chris with my 50mm lens just as the Milky Way was cresting the horizon. 50mm is approximately the same field of view that our eyes see.

Seeing quite a bit of chatter around this. Based on the comments I dealt with when I was at RadioShack last year and before, nobody has shopped at RadioShack in the past 30 years, so it's probably not your current email address or home address anyways. 
Among the locations, trademarks, overpriced cables, and other assets that RadioShack is selling off as part of its bankruptcy filing are tens of millions of email addresses, home addresses, and...

This is funny, but man, I hope Microsoft wasn't involved. Talk about shady.
Imagine asking an Apple Store employee for advice, and getting a response that Apple products aren't very good.
