One ad libbed line in the first 'Iron Man' changed everything for Marvel - 2時間前  Mashable

"I am Iron Man." Robert Downey Jr.-as-Tony Stark utters that short sentence in the waning moments of 2008's Iron Man, the movie that kicked off the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the fictional moment, Stark opted to cast aside prepared remarks that would have kept his secret identity safe and out himself instead. SEE ALSO: Marvel's 'Black Widow' gets one step closer to reality with a new director It's such a lightning strike moment for a movie based on comic books, where secret identities are often treated as sacrosanct.

Flabbergasted Twitter trashes Forbes story that suggests replacing libraries with Amazon - 3時間前  Mashable

There are bad takes, and then there's the take by Forbes contributor Panos Mourdoukoutas (who also serves as Chair of the Department of Economics at Long Island University) that local libraries should be replaced by Amazon book stores.  Among the reasons Mourdoukoutas offers are: libraries don't have as many public events as they used to because of school auditoriums; people go to places like Starbucks to hang out and work and read now instead of their library; and because technology makes physical books obsolete.

Amazing new robot arm can catch and release deep sea creatures without harm - 5時間前  Mashable

Being able to snag the gelatinous or otherwise soft creatures of the deep ocean for study without harming them in the process provides researchers with a bit of challenge, a challenge Harvard's Wyss Institute may have overcome. The new RAD sampler (RAD stands for rotary-actuated device) is an origami-style robotic claw-like machine that can track down the deep-sea creatures and close around them to create something like a globe that fully encapsulates and then releases the creature without harm.  The device has been tested of depths between 1,600 and 2,300 feet while researchers plan to b...more

Is 'The Purge' TV series pure fiction or a vision of our grim future? Watch the first trailer. - 20時間前  Mashable

Each new release in The Purge series pushes us closer to the central question: How much of this is actually fiction and how much is a taste of what humanity's future looks like? For the USA Network's 10-episode televised take on the series, it certainly appears as if we're getting more of the same. The "all crimes are legal for one night each year" conceit, an idea dreamed up by the totalitarian figures presiding over the United States of America (fictional ones), is central to the story. This trailer doesn't give up the goods on who the central players are in this story. There are some sugges...more
