Philly Radio Station Releases Video Of Chris Christie Falling Off A Chair — The video was shown at Philadelphia's annual Wing Bowl, and was apparent payback for Christie supporting the Dallas Cowboys.

Twitter Fights For Its Future With Native Video And Group Chats — Twitter is about to get bigger, and yet smaller too. Today, the company announced it is rolling out two new and substantial features to its service: private chatrooms, and a tool that lets people capture, edit, and share videos. Either alone would be a big deal, but taken together, this feels almost like an entirely new service.

TK TK POSSIBLE TECH ANGLES FOR NYC BLIZZARD DO NOT PUBLISH LOL — 1. This One Tweet Perfectly Sums Up The Reason Why We Are Getting All This Snow 2. Post about Seamless. Seamless hacks? Can you hack seamless? look into that. 3. Ok. Got it. Seamless vs. Postmates race: see which one get to my apartment with hotter food.

Introducing The Internet's New Favorite Simile

Why We Love And Loathe The Selfie Stick — Six months ago I sent an email out to BuzzFeed's editorial staff with a simple subject headline: "selfie stick: awful or amazing?' I created a monster. The resulting 150-plus email thread has proven remarkably persistent and set off a debate that continues - much to the chagrin of basically everyone - in our inboxes to this day.

Let's All Join The AP Stylebook In Killing The Term "Ride-Sharing" — Every so often the Associated Press Stylebook, the collective that sets many of the news industry's grammar and word use standards, sends out an update to alert news organizations and concerned citizens to the latest changes (it's BLUE cheese, not bleu cheese, FYI).

The Danger Of Calling Uber A "Tech Company" — As a tech writer, every holiday season I take on a side job as an extended family tech support jockey. In this role I gamely help older family members "Force Quit" the Mail application, restart their iPhones, and change the clock on their Fitbits.

This Selfie Stick Phone Call Photo Will Be The Lasting Image Of 2015, Our Time — Every so often, a photograph comes along that defines an era. Maybe it's Alfred Eisenstaedt's V-J Day snap of sailor kissing a nurse in Times Square. Maybe it's a man standing in front of a tank in Tiananmen Square.

A Highly Scientific And Sobering Study Of My Year On Twitter — Almost one year ago I nuked my Twitter feed and unfollowed everyone. I'd spent six years obsessively following people, but it had become too much, even when it was slow. I used it as a chance to rebuild my feed deliberately from the ground up.

14 Last-Minute Tech Gifts For People You Wish Were Dead — I'm not exactly certain what one of these would get you besides 25 DMs to strangers and an overwhelming sense of loneliness and despair. It is a truth, now universally acknowledged, that one should Never Tweet, but chances are, one of your friends or loved ones has chosen to ignore this credo, which is why you should get them this mug.
