Instagram Isn't Boxed in by the Square Anymore

Instagram doesn't want you to be so square. On Thursday, the social media juggernaut announced that in addition to the traditional square option, users can now post photos and videos in both landscape and portrait orientation. In its press release, the company noted, "Square format has been and always will be part of who we are. That said, the visual story you're trying to tell should always come first." Having three options now means you have more control over your images, never having to compromise that awesome skyline panoramic again (it's also especially great for making those widescreen videos look see more

10 Minutes with Rafael Nadal

Rafael Nadal is sitting in a room at the Standard High Line in NYC. The tennis star is here to talk about the new NikeCourt collection, which debuts this week. To celebrate the line, Nike will stage a re-imagining of its iconic Spike Jonze-directed "Guerrilla Tennis" commercial, in which the classic rivalry between Andre Agassi and Pete Sampras was famously played out on a busy Manhattan street. The need for a narrative has conferred on Nadal and Roger Federer the 21st-century version of that Agassi-Sampras rivalry. At the Standard, I show up with Polaroid camera and ask him what he see more

As Jaguar Unveils New SUV, Big Cars Are Making a Comeback

Not too long ago, the SUV was America's defining vehicle, for better and worse. They were rolling, tank-like tributes to the overlarge, the in-your-face, and the defiant consumption of natural resources. Then, when the economic crisis hit and gas prices went through the roof, the sport-utility vehicle became a pariah, and Detroit's Big Three automakers, who once couldn't make enough SUVs to meet demand, almost sank under the weight of all the unsold inventory moldering on lots as America tightened its collective belt. see more

Here's How Much the Mansion From The OC Is Selling For

California, here we come. The house that served as the exterior for Sandy, Kirsten, and Seth Cohen's home (and that of their wayward ward Ryan Atwood) on The OC is for sale for $6.25 million. While the show's fictional dwelling included a pool house, the real one features six bedrooms and seven bathrooms spread across 6,376 square feet. Outside there's a pool and four acres of land, but no pool house to sneak into (or out of) after hours. Another thing: this house is actually in Malibu, which is about a two hour drive from the Cohen's residence in Newport see more

Testing Out Ralph Lauren's Smartshirt, the POLOTECH

Think wearable technology is relegated to your wrist? Think again. Ralph Lauren—which has dressed the American Olympic team and oversees an entire athletic-minded line with Polo Sport—has always had its eye on fitness. The brand's biggest play to date may just be in the release of the first-ever tech-enabled "smartshirt," known as the POLOTECH Shirt. An electrical box plugs in directly to the garment and gathers information from silver threads that are woven through into its fabric. All of this delivers your workout vitals to a proprietary app in real time. It's like the future, but now. The tee monitors see more

The Pants Revolution Is Here: No More Boring Chinos and Basic Denim

Left: Craig Green S/S 2016. Center: Rick Owens S/S 2016. Right: Balmain S/S 2016. Five years ago, pants were a straightforward proposition, a nonissue, the opposite of a fashion-conversation starter. It was the heyday of flat-front chinos and slim, dark denim. Those were your options. Maybe you had a pair of cargo pants or wool trousers in your rotation. Maybe. Adventurous fashion happened above the belt and below the ankle, but what went on in between was a not-so-risky business. see more

Grumpy Cat Becomes First Cat to Get a Wax Figure at Madame Tussauds

This is what the feline fervor of the modern Internet hath wrought. Grumpy Cat, the calico mix who got famous on Reddit for having a face that permanently communicates a look of utter disdain, will be rewarded with a figure at Madame Tussauds' San Francisco location. Instead of a traditional wax representation, in this case the museum will create an animatronic cat that can make five separate movements. Grumpy Cat announced this recognition on Twitter thusly: #BREAKING: Grumpy Cat Not-Happy To Be @MadameTussauds First Cat Wax Figure #GrumpyWax: http://t.co/5qLZDQu0mp pic.twitter.com/WzUWI4zhog— Grumpy Cat (@RealGrumpyCat) August 26, 2015 "This is truly see more

Usain Bolt Got Tackled by a Rogue Segway After Winning at the World Championships

Segways are the worst. They look dumb, and they make you look dumb, too. But at least you can choose to ignore them, right? WRONG. You cannot run from Segways. Even Usain Bolt—the fastest man in the world—can not run from Segways. Halfway through his victory lap in Beijing after after running 200 meters in just 19.55 seconds, Bolt was slide-tackled by a Segway gone rogue. From the footage, it appears that it's the photographer's fault for riding the Segway too close to the control track before bouncing off it and careening into the world's greatest sprinter and his very see more
