    Published: Mon, Mar 30, 2015

    The 2015 iHeartRadio Music Awards started with a bang (we're of course talking about that ultra-hot Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson duet) and ended with one, too ("Peaches N Cream," anyone?).

  • Reporters refuse Obama's dismissal from golf course, are sent to the 'shed' | WashingtonExaminer.com

    Published: Sun, Mar 29, 2015

    In its latest attempt to shut down media coverage, the White House Saturday dismissed reporters to their Florida hotel by declaring a news lid even though President Obama was just beginning his golf game — but the press pool voted to stay. Obama's golf pools are regularly frustrated by never even seeing him. Some previous presidents, notably George H.W. Bush, would allow reporters to watch his play on one or two greens. Sometimes he answered questions. Obama has golfed at the club before, with Tiger Woods. The trip will cost taxpayers $843,508 in airfare alone.

    Published: Sat, Mar 28, 2015

But even before Reid became President Obama's right-hand man in the Senate, the former boxer was known for his ability to keep opponents in check, even if it meant the occasional provocative remark.

  • Vine videos go HD in latest app update

    Published: Sat, Mar 28, 2015

    The Vines you see looping on the Web and your mobile devices are about to start looking a lot better: The app has begun rolling out support for 720p high-definition video. It means clearer and crisper clips for users, and should make the service more appealing to companies, brands, and other organizations that use it in a professional capacity. A bit of low-grade blur might not matter when you’re sharing your breakfast with a small circle of friends, but if you’re Coca-Cola or the New York Yankees, then you want your official clips looking as sharp and eye-catching as possible. High-quality source material — like action camera footage — won’t have to be downgraded as much in the future.
