Dear Garfield, “Suck it.” Sincerely, Snoopy and Marmaduke

After millions of years of evolution and hundreds of academic hours of study, the verdict is in: dogs are smarter than cats.

Researchers at the University of Oxford in England have released a report in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences journal stating that highly social animals need more brain power than solitary species.

Nintendo Making Games That Can Play Themselves

Nintendo takes laziness to a whole new level with games that can play themselves. And you thought games that included “hints” were bad.
