Back in June, it was revealed that for the first time ever, Playmobil planned to branch out from its normal historical and generic toys with sets featuring characters and vehicles from popular movies, starting with the Ghostbusters. A few months later we finally have our first look at a few of those playsets, confirming that this was a very, very good idea.

We would totally watch this movie. And it would not matter to us whether it was because Tom Hanks’ original movie character Allen Bauer has fallen for Channing Tatum’s new mer-person because he is so beautiful or because he’s left his first aquatic romantic partner, Madison, as a result of finding out he never loved her—only her fin.

The Earth isn’t flat. The moon landing wasn’t bogus. And that “live” video of the International Space Station you might have seen floating around this morning on Facebook certainly wasn’t real.

If someone asks you to send them money on a dating app like Tinder, don’t do it. This might sound like common sense, but in a world where more people are meeting potential partners online, it can become all too easy for otherwise intelligent people to get scammed. And these Tinder horror stories are a testament to that.

The new Surface Studio is Microsoft’s incredibly over-designed play at capturing the creative class that has been increasingly left behind by mainstream manufactures (ahem Apple). Its design definitely borrows from the core look behind the iMac, except that it’s also got a touch display, and a hinge that allows it to fold down so you can use it like a drawing tablet. It starts at $3000, which is incredibly expensive, but after putting my hands on this beautiful machine for a few minutes, it makes me wish I had a real creative reason to use it.

According to IMDB, Tom Hanks has acted in 81 movies in a career that started way back in 1980. Bill Murray has 83 acting credits dating back to 1973. That’s over 35 years in “the industry” together, and yet they’ve never appeared on screen together in the same movie. Hmm. Seems suspicious, right? Could it be because they’re the same person? This photo, which somehow looks like funny everyman Tom Hanks and funny funnyman Bill Murray, makes it seem like that’s the most logical answer.

Today, Microsoft devices chief Panos Panay spent nearly an hour extolling the virtues of his company’s Surface products, including the gorgeous new Surface Studio. No joke, Panos loves these things. This is unhealthy love.

There’s not enough ice on the Earth’s polar caps to flood the entire planet should global warming turn it all into water. But sea levels will keep rising, and Danny MacRostie’s beautiful timelapse footage of fog rolling over California’s Mount Tamalpais feels like an eery sneak peek of where the world might be headed.

Microsoft just wrapped up its October event, and as we expected, it wasn’t wall-to-wall hardware announcements like last year. Nothing from Lumia land. Radio silence on the Band front.

You know, in the other black and white Old Man Logan image we got, I thought he was looking better than ever. This new photo pretty much puts that to bed. I guess the future does not come with doctors. At least not doctors Logan can trust.

Microsoft blew our minds last year when it announced the Surface Book—and its crazy detachable display. This year, the company’s refreshing the product, and claims it has stuffed two times as much processing power and 30 percent more battery life in the exact same design.

Desktop computers have come in two flavors for the last few years: boxes you plug into your monitor or TV, and all-in-one devices like Apple’s popular iMac line. Microsoft’s newly announced Surface Studio is the latter kind of desktop, but with a giant touchscreen and pen input too. It’s also the first desktop computer Microsoft has ever made. And it’s unlike anything else out there in the world.

Since it was first suggested that the flickering star known as KIC 8462852 might be a Dyson Sphere, telescope-toting astronomers associated with the search for extraterrestrial intelligence (SETI) have been scouring the system for signs of aliens. Now, the most well-funded SETI program on Earth—UC Berkeley’s Breakthrough Listen—is getting in on the hunt, too.
