Video: Watch this incredible time lapse of the northern lights

Northern Lights Time Lapse Video

Photographer Alexis Coram took a trip to Alaska earlier this year and ended up capturing one of the most impressive videos of the northern lights that we’ve seen. The northern lights occur when charged particles of the sun enter Earth’s atmosphere and can usually only be seen from the higher latitudes, which is why most of us never get to see them up close and in person. However, Coram’s video is so incredible that it might be the next-best thing.

HP bought Autonomy ‘out of frustration and desperation’ despite red flags

HP Autonomy Acquisition

Dating someone out of frustration and desperation is never a good idea, and it’s apparently not a good idea when it comes to corporate mergers either. Reuters recently posted a mammoth report detailing HP’s (HPQ) disastrous acquisition of IT software firm Autonomy, and it doesn’t make former CEO Léo Apotheker look very good. Essentially, unnamed sources told Reuters that Apotheker was so desperate to transform HP from a hardware manufacturer into a software firm that he overlooked several warning signs when he agreed to buy Autonomy for $11.1 billion back in 2011.

Nintendo only needs to sell one game with each Wii U to make console profitable

Nintendo Wii U Profit

Nintendo’s Wii U is a capable little game console with a nifty touchscreen-equipped GamePad controller, but one thing it’s not is profitable off the bat. Traditionally, most console hardware is sold at a loss at launch because of high-cost components that provide cutting-edge graphics and processing power. To put it into perspective, it took five years for Microsoft’s (MSFT) Xbox business to become profitable and four years for Sony’s (SNE) PlayStation 3 to get out of the red. Nintendo’s modus operandi has always been to make a profit on every console it sells, so it was shocking to hear the Wii U would be sold at a loss. But Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aime recently sat down with MercuryNews and set the record straight, explaining that the Wii U isn’t losing much money per unit sold.

Atrix HD soak test to get underway soon

Atrix HD

Motorola Atrix HD users enrolled in the Motorola Feedback Network are getting a message about an upcoming soak test that should commence soon. There’s no news about what version being tested, so we can’t say this is the promised Jelly Bean update, but we certainly can hope. Officially, the communication is pretty generic, and pretty standard as far as soak test invites go.

Amazon on Verizon

Once upon a time there was a leaked memo regarding Verizon beginning to load “a suite of Amazon apps preloaded on one dedicated home screen for all newly launched Android devices.” Wit the launch of the HTC Droid DNA, we now now exactly what that entails.

Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9" Video Unboxing

To be totally honest, when the doorbell rang earlier today and the UPS man handed me an Amazon package, I could not for the life of me recall what I had ordered. It was only when I opened the package and saw the box within for the Kindle Fire HD 8.9″ that I remembered pre-ordering one the day it was initially announced over two months ago.
