Judge gives chimpanzees human rights for the first time - 9:08
For the first time in US history, a judge has decreed that a pair of chimpanzees held at a university research facility are covered by the same laws that govern the detention of humans, effectively rendering the animals as legal "people" in the eyes of the law. New York Supreme Court Justice Barbara Jaffe said that the apes, held at Stony Brook University for research purposes, are covered by a writ of habeas corpus — a basic legal principle that lets people challenge the validity of their de...Fuller House is officially coming to Netflix - 7:20
It’s happening: Netflix has ordered a 13-episode season of Fuller House. John Stamos will produce the Full House sequel and guest star in his reprised role of Uncle Jesse. Candace Cameron-Bure, Jodie Sweetin and Andrea Barber will star. Discussions with other Full House cast members Bob Saget, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Dave Coulier and Lori Loughlin are said to be "ongoing." Jeff Franklin returns as the show’s creator.
Fuller House continues the Full House adventures, albeit this time with...Genetic testing for breast cancer gets more affordable - 6:01
Genetic tests for cancer can run thousands of dollars, but Color Genomics plans to change that: it's offering testing for the cancer risk variants BRCA1 and BRCA2 — as well as 17 others — for $249, starting today. By comparison, Myriad Genetics' similar test costs about $4,000.
Unlike consumer-oriented genetic testing offered by 23andMe, Color Genomics' test will be available only through health care providers. And the company has genetic counselors available to help patients interpret the...Jon Stewart's last episode of The Daily Show is August 6th - 5:45
At the end of tonight's episode — right before the ubiquitous "moment of zen" — Jon Stewart announced that August 6th will be his final episode of The Daily Show. It will be a hard ticket to come by, but he directed fans who are looking to win a pair to an autism fundraiser he's helping run on the crowdfunding site Omaze.
"I will be wearing a suit. I will, more than likely, be showered," Stewart said. "I'm sorry — I will be wearing overalls, and I won't shower."

If you've got an attic full of old furniture and photos, it might be time to think about giving it a spring clean — its contents could soon be digitized, thanks to a new grant program set up by the US National Endowment for the Humanities. The new "Common Heritage" offers money to historical groups and institutions to find and digitally record historical documents, photos, and artifacts, taking them from the attics and basements in which they currently reside, and showing them to the world....Japanese maglev train breaks world speed record for second time in a week - 4:45
Last week Japan's magnetic levitation bullet train broke a world speed record that had stood for 12 years, and now it's bettered itself. The maglev train, which is undergoing testing on an experimental track in Yamanashi prefecture, has set a new record by reaching 603 kilometers per hour (375 mph), reports Kyodo News.
The maglev line is expected to open for business in 2027, and will operate at a maximum speed of 505 kph (314 mph). That'll still be fast enough for the trains to connect Tokyo...YouTube will stop working on the older Apple TV and other aging devices soon - 2:56
Like burning down a forest to make sweet nutrients for new growth, YouTube is winding down its service to myriad older devices today. All in the name of progress, of course. In a notice, spotted by MacRumors, YouTube notes that "select" devices that were made in 2012 (or earlier) will find that any special-made YouTube apps will no longer work. That's thanks to a change in YouTube's Data API, which Google says opens it up to features like comments, captions, RSS push notifications, and flaggi...The new Star Wars trailer is better with music from Inception - 1:26
Like Kenny Loggins and Top Gun, composer John Williams helped make Star Wars sound so unique that you can tell what movie it is with just a spit second of the opening theme. So last week, when the second trailer for the new film came out, there was a very obvious question: "What if, in classic movie trailer fashion, this had music from someone else?"
Answering that for myself, I went the obvious route and plugged in "Mind Heist," which was famously used for the trailer of Inception, and is f...

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleads guilty to threatening to kill - 10:09
AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd pleaded guilty in a New Zealand court Tuesday to a charge of threatening to kill a man who used to work for him. He also pleaded guilty to possessing methamphetamine and marijuana.
Rudd faces up to seven years in prison on the threatening to kill charge, although his lawyer Craig Tuck said the prosecution case boils down to an angry phone call, and he is seeking a remedy that would involve no legal consequences for Rudd.

Assassin's Creed Chronicles: China finds its sweet spot in the quiet spaces between planning and action. It's a game of observation and (sometimes bloody) execution. You spend just as much time at rest as in motion, reading your surroundings and picking a path of least resistance in your endless pursuit of a higher score.
It's fun. It's satisfying. It's unashamedly arcade-y. It's also the best interpretation of Assassin's Creed in years.

In 2012, following a massive storm, a video swept across the Internet showing Australian surfers riding waves in front of the Sydney Opera House. On Tuesday, it is back doing the rounds.
At the time, the footage seemed too good to be true — Aussies surfing massive waves in a normally flat harbour in front of an iconic landmark — and it was. The original video was posted on YouTube on June 6, 2012, with surfers saying a 100-year storm created the freak conditions

The Nokia brand may come back to phones—just not Windows Phones.

It’s simple auction economics — the more people bidding on and competing for an item, the higher the price the item will sell for. Why wouldn’t publishers want this for their ad inventory? They do, obviously. But they’re not getting it under the current programmatic setup. The current programmatic auction dynamic is a “members only club,” with many would-be buyers waiting outside to bid on what’s left after the initial auction.
