Well, we found the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse: Tinky-Winky, Dipsy, Laa-Laa and Po.

After a spooky, black-and-white image of the already trippy Teletubbies went viral on Twitter on Thursday, a musician created an even creepier post-punk music video starring the characters, devoid of all color.

LONDON — He knows his decision was "crazy" and "wild," but Zayn Malik says he just couldn't keep going with One Direction anymore

In his first interview since leaving the boy band, Malik told The Sun newspaper that he let Directioners down.

Apple's first smart wearable will be arriving on consumers' wrists in about a month, but the first Apple Watch-ready apps have already started arriving in Apple's App Store.

Among other apps, Twitter, Evernote, Expedia, the New York Times and Target have been updated with support for the upcoming wearable, 9to5Mac noted

Besides Apple Watch support, these updates bring little or no new functionality. The latest version notes for the Twitter app, for example, merely says "Includes Twitter for Apple Watch."

When you play the game of thrones, you either win or you bogey.

With the Iron Throne being made from all sorts of materials, golf clubs were the next logical step. But this tribute to Game of Thrones' return is more than just par for the course.

Direct Golf made this masterpiece using more than 300 clubs, putting the phrase "nine iron" to shame. Each club was carefully selected and cut to size along with all of the rubber grips being used for the seat's fabric.

It took two months to create the throne. Check out the process below. Read more...
