But an old brown Vermont barn roof was revealed, quite clearly, to be salmon red. Yards full of leafy trees and plants suddenly had different shades of green. Everywhere I looked, desaturated or barely discernible red things were popping.

… It was like a peek into a world I knew existed, but had never been allowed to see.

The pair of glasses that cured David Pogue’s colorblindness. Such a great story.

One of the most remarkable TED talks I’ve ever seen, all about the power of the human voice. Not what we say, but literally what sounds we can make.

Now I have to learn how to do all of these things immediately.

The Lumia 1020 is a totally insane camera that takes incredible pictures of Justin Timberlake concerts. But it’s not quite as good a phone as I want it to be.

Joe Biden could definitely be the first president ever to run no campaign advertising other than an incredible series of GIFs.

There have been many moving and illuminating stories about the victims of the marathon attack, and the people who selflessly came to their aid, but this is not one of them. Instead, the Rolling Stone article is about the still largely mysterious backstory of a young man who transformed, in what appears to be a short amount of time, from a seemingly normal college student into an alleged terrorist. The facts of his life are important, the larger social implications of his biography are important—and so this story has the potential to be a valuable contribution to the public record and to the general understanding of one of the most serious incidents of domestic terrorism in American history.

Ian Crouch says all the things someone needed to say about Dzhokhar Tsarnaev’s Rolling Stone Cover and Cultural Self-Censorship.

Make sure you bookmark The Verge’s viewer’s guide to PRISM forever and ever. It’s going to be important for a while.

Your teeth will crack its sugared shell like a spoon agreeably disrupting the surface of a crème brûlée. The marshmallow beneath it is soft, satiny, and wonderfully cold. (“It took some time to develop a marshmallow-like recipe that allowed it to freeze without getting hard,” Ansel said.) A core of vanilla ice cream enveloped in chocolate feuilletine holds a long, maple-smoked stick in place.

Where there were once cronuts, there is now the frozen s’more.

Watch the video. WATCH THE VIDEO.

The dream, I would offer, is that by stripping away the trappings of modern life, we reach a place where humans naturally fall into deep and honest relationships with each other. The vision promises that if it weren’t for all the damn new stuff (like watches), we’d all be sitting around sharing the parts of ourselves that we’re ashamed of, supporting others in their most meaningful endeavors, and paying mind only to worthy causes and ideas.

'Camp Grounded,' 'Digital Detox,' and the Age of Techno-Anxiety

This is the best thing I’ve read in a while.

Shakespeare Star Wars might be the best thing that ever happened to Star Wars. Or Shakespeare.

Victor Oladipo wore Google Glass to the NBA draft, and The Verge got all the footage and one hell of a story.

This was insanely fun to work on.
