Stratos wants to be the supercard that holds all your credit card details

The Stratos Bluetooth Connected Card, which the company has worked on for three years, is roughly the same size and weight of a standard credit card, but it’s electronic and can be accepted anywhere.

Anger and disbelief in Pasco after police kill undocumented immigrant



PASCO, WASHINGTON — Several Pasco residents who watched the video of an undocumented orchard worker from Mexico get shot and killed by police on Feb. 10 are still shocked and bewildered by what it shows, even if they first saw it more than a week ago

They don’t understand how three police officers could chase down and shoot Antonio Zambrano-Montes, who was armed with only a rock. They don’t see why the officers reached for their guns so quickly. They’re worried that they won’t get answers to…

Jon Stewart’s goodbye: ‘Daily Show’ doesn’t deserve ‘even slightly restless host’



LOS ANGELES — Jon Stewart opened the Tuesday edition of The Daily Show like nothing was up, upbeat and in good spirits, maybe even a little … restless. But he did give the studio audience a cryptic peek into the very near future:

“Lots to talk about tonight. You probably know things these folks [gesturing around the studio] don’t know just yet, which is a twist on things but — we’ll get there,” he said to the TV audience, which by then already knew that he’d be leaving his Daily Show post…

Chris Pratt and Chris Evans settle Super Bowl bet like real superheroes



The New England Patriots won the Super Bowl, but Chris Pratt and Chris Evans are the real champions.

The two stars made a bet last month, setting super high and super heartwarming stakes: If the Patriots won, Chris Pratt (who grew up in Washington) must visit Christopher’s Haven in Boston dressed as Star-Lord, and if the Seattle Seahawks won, Chris Evans (who hails from Boston) must visit Seattle Children’s Hospital dressed as Captain America.

‘SNL’ parodies sexist stereotypes in Super Bowl ads



In an all-too-real parody, Saturday Night Life poked fun at the way some football ads portray women as nothing more than eager-to-please snack-getters.

The sketch features a bored housewife that uses her all-new Totino’s Super Bowl Activity Pack, which includes cheap toys to keep her occupied while the game is on

Hopefully, this year’s Super Bowl commercials will be better.
