Electronic trio the Glitch Mob's sophomore album, "Love Death Immortality," lives up to its epic title. The 10-track recording's grand, encompassing sound was honed onstage at some of the biggest worldwide venues over the past couple years, and the themes explored -- captured in the title -- are universal. In contrast to the group's debut album, "Drink the Sea," "Love Death Immortality" is richer, with real instrumentation, and more robust, with strong female guest voices. The band's live show is equally massive, with spectacular interactive concert visuals that the musicians … Read more

I'm imagining sitting in my home on Tatooine, relaxing with a glass of Bantha-blood fizz, watching the Galactic Broadcasting Service's latest episode of "This Old Death Star." Host Darth Vila suggests a quick and easy way to spruce up your spaceship of terror: wall tiles. Death Star wall tiles.
The wall tiles from Tom Spina Designs were created for a custom home theater project, to really give it that conquering-the-galaxy sort of look. The "Star Wars"-themed theater features 14 different tiles. Each master tile was molded and cast in tinted resin. The designs were plucked right from the surface of the Death Star.… Read more
After Death eliminates tough viruses successfully, but it seems like it would be very easy to make a mistake with it if you're new. It barely offers any information or tips on how to use it properly or what files to delete. In spite of that, it's not a bad last-ditch effort if a virus has already made a mess of things on your PC.
After Death is designed to find and kill viruses that auto-run on your drives, but it can also sniff out and get rid of any program that runs automatically on your computer. That … Read more
Does death disrupt your day?
By "your day," I of course mean your Facebook news feed, the place where all news happens and all feelings are expressed.
Some people feel that remembering those they loved doesn't quite harmonize with cat videos, political diatribes, and news of the latest boyfriend, job, or date.
So on Thursday they launched Sanctri, an app that gives bereaved Facebookers their own area for grief, sorrow, and remembrance.
Four million Facebook users will die this year. And Sanctri's co-founder, Jono Milner, believes: "When someone passes away, we don't know how to deal with it on Facebook."… Read more

GeekWire spotted an Amazon review Monday that said the online retailer had a "special process to send replacements to those who have faulty consoles," without needing to ship the defective gadget back right away. Commenters on the review said they also were able to take advantage of the program by contacting Amazon customer service.
Amazon said that the majority of its customers who have ordered the PS4 have not been affected. "… Read more
Now, researchers at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health in Madison say they have been able to both diagnose and treat the condition while the baby is still in the womb.
I hate to state what seems to be obvious, but funerals aren't fun.
Yes, there are a lot of little black dresses and dapper suits, but things are often miserable. At least until the chardonnay starts flowing at the after party.
It seems, therefore, that some have taken to creating selfies at funerals. Just to spice up their own living existences, you understand.
Ever since you've moved into your new place, things haven't gone quite right, have they?
You didn't get the promotion to senior office librarian. You suspect your lover is seeing someone else. And then there's those weird feelings when you go into the second bedroom.
It's not that you get a shiver down your spine. It's that something doesn't seem quite right, as if your possessions have been moved a few inches away from where you left them.
Let's be honest about a possible cause here: someone might have once died in … Read more
