The future is awesome. But aren’t we supposed to have jet packs already?

Well, if we can’t have those things (yet ;) ), then maybe these 20 eye-popping items from the future will make up for it…

1. The world’s first virtual reality store has opened in S. Korea. All the walls are actually touchscreens. You simply tap what you want, and it’ll be waiting for you at the exit.

Fox interviews Richie Incognito, reveals texts

On Fox’s NFL pregame show, the network ran an interview of suspended Dolphins guard Richie Incognito. It is Incognito’s first full interview since allegations surfaced that he bullied teammate Jonathan Martin.

Reaction poured in.

Some are astounded by the high volume of texts reportedly exchanged between the two.

Do we smell another Bob Costas lecture?

Twitter resets 250,000 user passwords following large-scale security attack

Hey @twitter I just got a “reset your password” email. Is this for real?

— Jeremy Writebol (@jwritebol) February 2, 2013

Yes, it’s likely real. Twitter is encouraging users to follow “good password hygiene” tonight after revealing that hackers might have gained access to a quarter-million usernames, email addresses and encrypted passwords this week.

ALERT: Twitter: Hackers may have gained limited access to information of approximately 250,000 users; Twitter was able to shut down hacking,

— CNBC (@CNBC) February 2, 2013

In a blog post, Twitter has announced that it has reset passwords and revoked session tokens for those users it believes were affected by the attack. If you’re having trouble logging in with your usual password, you might have been among those affected.

As a precautionary security measure, we have reset passwords and revoked session tokens for these accounts. If your account was one of them, you will have recently received (or will shortly) an email from us at the address associated with your Twitter account notifying you that you will need to create a new password. Your old password will not work when you try to log in to Twitter.

Change your password, people: Twitter hacked, 250,000 user accounts compromised dthin.gs/X0hp8z

— Liz Heron (@lheron) February 2, 2013

Well, it looks like I was one of the 250,000 accounts forced to reset my password. tylr.us/9P

— Tyler Hillsman (@thillsman) February 2, 2013

“Twitter believes your account may have been compromised by a service not associated with Twitter. We’ve reset your password.” wha

— Ae Daily! (@cartoonmoney) February 2, 2013

Uh… Change your Twitter password. Right now. Not kidding.

— Luke Sheppard (@tcpiplab) February 2, 2013

Twitter hacked by professionals – change your password people

— Robin(@RobinDallasTX) February 2, 2013

Twitter just reset my password of its own accord. Hmmm. I was really careful when re-entering it but the reset seems legit. Very weird.

— Danielle Donders (@DaniGirl) February 2, 2013

Just changed my twitter password. At least twitter world lets u know if something happens.

— Angelique (@ange07) February 2, 2013

@muchmor Hope nobody uses the same password for their email and twitter accounts. Maybe a good time to update passwords.

— thinkinthebox (@thinkinthebox) February 2, 2013

Twitter describes the attack as “extremely sophisticated.”

This attack was not the work of amateurs, and we do not believe it was an isolated incident. The attackers were extremely sophisticated, and we believe other companies and organizations have also been recently similarly attacked. For that reason we felt that it was important to publicize this attack while we still gather information, and we are helping government and federal law enforcement in their effort to find and prosecute these attackers to make the Internet safer for all users.

Soon You’ll No Longer Be Able To Buy New Albums On Tuesdays

For the first time ever in the U.S. and the U.K., new albums will soon be released on Fridays.

1. “New music Tuesday,” a staple of the U.S. music industry for decades, is no more. Starting this summer, new albums all over the world will be released on Fridays.

2. The switch is the result of a decision by the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, or IFPI, a massive organization representing music industries around the world.

The idea of a global release date has been a dream in some corners of the music industry for years. As of now, many countries have their own release dates — in the U.S. it’s Tuesday, in the U.K. it’s Monday, and in Australia and Germany it’s Friday — which wasn’t much of a problem before most people started buying and listening to music online. Now, in the age of the internet, social media, and streaming, once an album is available anywhere in the world, people want it everywhere. Releasing music on the same day around the world, the argument goes, will deter eager consumers who won’t wait until an album is released in their country from downloading it illegally.

3. Members and supporters of IFPI, which include the head of the Recording Industry Association of America and Spotify’s chief content officer, argue that Friday is a better time for releasing music since it’s closer to the weekend.

In a statement, IFPI CEO Frances Moore said a majority of respondents to polls in major international markets indicated they would prefer music to be released on a Friday or Saturday, days when they have more free time to shop. In a subsequent interview with Billboard, she said IFPI’s research indicates that there’s a 3% surge in retail foot traffic for music over the weekend.

Here Are 29 Foreign Signs That Spectacularly Failed At English. LOL At #10!

The English language is notoriously difficult to learn for foreigners. It’s not hard to understand why, though. English contains many confusing rules and even exceptions to those rules. (In fact, it seems the English language threw any rule book that there might have been out the window completely.) So, when other countries attempt to use English sub-titles in advertisements and signs? The outcome is usually hilarious. This is called “Engrish,” and it’s awesome. LOL.

1.) Feel shame if you sit down. FEEL SHAME.

8.) YAYYYY!

urlesque

23.) You can never be too careful.

urlesque

24.) Good, I hate privatized Mayhem.

urlesque

28.) I hate old crap. It’s the worst.

urlesque

29.) No, that’s pretty believable.

urlesque

(H/T Urlesque) It’s okay to laugh, because they certainly did their best (and at least English would be their second or third language). It’d be much worse if you found any of these signs in Middle America. Share the laughs by clicking on the button below.
