Thanks to Google Maps It's Impossible to Hide the Millennium Falcon

It's a little unsettling how effective modern technology is at finding things that are supposed to be kept secret. 

Luckily, in this case, it's the harmless discovery that the Millennium Falcon, used in the upcoming Star Wars film, has been hidden behind some shipping containers on a golf course. 

We can't help but feel that the discovery of the spacecraft is eerily reminiscent of the scouting methods used in WWII before bombing raids of airfields.

People Are Asking Google Home If Obama's Planning a Coup, and the Answer Is Insane

There's been a lot of talk recently about what former-president, current-private citizen Barack Obama is up to. Did he wiretap Trump? Is he planning a coup? 

The answer is no. He's just windsurfing and wearing leather jackets. That kind of thing. 

But that's not keeping curious people from asking their Google Home if Obama's up to something, and the answer is hilarious. Is Google Home hooked up to Breitbart, InfoWars, or something? We're not ruling anything out.

Samuel L. Jackson is an American treasure. From Do the Right Thing to The Hateful Eight, and Jurassic Park to The Avengers, he's been a staple of classic films, providing audiences with an entertaining and important infodump. Let's just say if you need to get through some exposition, you could do a lot worse than Samuel L. Jackson. 

But what do we know about Samuel L. Jackson? For a guy we've watched and enjoyed for decades, I'd say surprisingly little. So people turn to Google to answer their questions, but they might as well go to the source. 

Jackson teamed up with Wired to answer some of the internet's most common and incomplete questions about the actor, and the responses, as you could imagine, are pretty bad ass.

edge2cats Uses Machine Learning to Turn Your Cat-Related Nightmares Into a Reality

There are some things man wasn't meant to toy with. Google's open-source machine-learning software Tensorflow is one of them. 

Cristopher Hesse used Tensorflow to create edge2cats, a program that turns line drawings into whatever you want, including horrible, horrible cats. It's a total nightmare, but also really funny.

Try it yourself here, check out some of these little freaks from Twitter.

Pokémon GO's taken the planet by storm. Lives have been made, ruined, and everything in between by this kickass augmented reality game. We're talking staged robberies like this:



And relationship-ruining NSFW-ish 'gotta catch 'em all' moments like this:



Looks like Google could've predicted much of the madness that's ensued thus far...
