This site may earn affiliate commissions from the links on this page. Terms of use. At CES 2018, Nvidia announced a new line of gaming monitors designed to round up and deliver every single high-end feature you can buy in a monitor or television today.

Forget Bitcoin – now Dogecoin goes wild

You know an investment is somewhat unconventional when the Know Your Meme website is the main source of background information.

Boxing 'feels empty without me' – Fury goes Eminem on Hearn

British boxer Tyson Fury has directed an expletive-laden rap at promoter Eddie Hearn after being cleared to resume his career. Fury also targeted the British Boxing Board of Control (BBBofC), which revoked his boxing licence in October 2016 because of medical issues. The 29-year-old has already challenged IBF and WBA heavyweight world champion Anthony Joshua to a fight in 2018. But Joshua’s promoter Hearn was the focus of Fury’s post on Wednesday.
