EA Censors Colin Kaepernick's Name in Madden 19

By Lucy O'Brien

EA has scrubbed a mention of former San Francisco 49ers quarterbackย Colin Kaepernick in a song featured in Madden NFL 19.

'YG' by Big Bank ft. 2 Chainz, Big Sean and Nicki Minaj is one of the 31 songs on the latest Madden's EA Trax soundtrack. The original verse by Big Sean goes like this: โ€œYou boys all cap, Iโ€™m more Colin Kaepernick.โ€ The below video is how it sounds with Kaepernick's name entirely removed in Madden 19.

Kaepernick is a controversial figure in football and politics for protesting police brutality by kneeling during the national anthem in 2016, which was the last year of his contract with the 49ers. His protest sent ripples throughout the NFL, and other players began taking the knee, attracting ire from conservative figures and President Trump. Following his departure from the team, Kaepernick remained unsigned, leading him to file a grievance against the NFL.

Google Maps is now a globe โ€” just zoom out

By Emil Protalinski

If you open Google Maps on your computer (go ahead, Iโ€™ll wait), youโ€™ll likely see the town or city you live in, or maybe the last place you looked up. Now, zoom out. No, more than that.

This 3D-printed camp stove is extra-efficient and wind-resistant

By Devin Coldewey

I love camping, but thereโ€™s always an awkward period when youโ€™ve left the tent but havenโ€™t yet created coffee that I hate camping. Itโ€™s hard not to watch the pot not boil and not want to just go back to bed, but since the warm air escaped when I opened the tent itโ€™s pointless! Anyway, the Swiss figured out a great way to boil water faster, and I want one of these sweet stoves now.

The PeakBoil stove comes from design students at ETH Zurich, who have clearly faced the same problems as myself. But since they actually camp in inclement weather, they also have to deal with wind blowing out the feeble flame of an ordinary gas burner.

Their attempt to improve on the design takes the controversial step of essentially installing a stovepipe inside the vessel and heating it from the inside out rather than from the bottom up. This has been used in lots of other situations to heat water but itโ€™s the first time Iโ€™ve seen it in a camp stove.

By carefully configuring the gas nozzles and adding ripples to the wall of the heat pipe, PeakBoil โ€œincreases the contact area between the flame and the jug,โ€ explained doctoral student and project leader Julian Ferchow in an ETH Zurich news release.

โ€œThat, plus the fact that the wall is very thin, makes heat transfer to the contents of the jug ideal,โ€ added his colleague Patrick Beutler.

Keeping the flames isolated inside the chimney behind baffles minimizes wind interference with the flames, and prevents you having to burn extra gas to keep it alive.

The design was created using a selective laser melting or sintering process, in which metal powder is melted in a pattern much like a 3D printer lays down heated plastic. Itโ€™s really just another form of additive manufacturing, and it gave the students โ€œa huge amount of design freedomโ€ฆwith metal casting, for instance, we could never achieve channels that are as thin as the ones inside our gas burner,โ€ Ferchow said.

Of course the design means itโ€™s pretty much only usable for boiling water (you wouldnโ€™t want to balance a pan on top of it), but thatโ€™s such a common and specific use case that many campers already have a stove dedicated to the purpose.

The team is looking to further improve the design and also find an industry partner to take it to market with. MSR, GSI, REIโ€ฆ Iโ€™m looking at you. Together we can make my mornings bearable.

Must Know Facts About the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

By info@topspeed.com (Safet Satara)


The age of naturally-aspirated engines is slowly but surely nearing its end. Only a handful of supercar producers are seriously developing V-10 and V-12 beasts, with Ferrari and Lamborghini being at the forefront of that development. One of them only recently revealed the ultimate in terms of power, speed, composure, and dominance - the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ - the ultimate representation of everything Lamborghini stands for. We have seen glimpses of it stretching its V-12 over the Nurburgring more than once, with its last effort actually being the most incredible one. The Lamborghini Aventador SVJ has become the worldโ€™s fastest production car to ever visit the Nurburgring.

To achieve such an extraordinary goal, the Lamborghini Aventador SVJ received a number of exceptional improvements over the previous best Lambo - the Aventador S and the Aventador SV. I am listing must-know facts about the stunning Lamborghini Aventador SVJ.

10 Best Crossover SUVs of 2018

By info@topspeed.com (Robert Moore)


Thanks to advancements in fuel economy and somewhat low gas prices (much lower than in Europe, anyway,) the crossover and SUV market is booming at levels similar to that of compact cars during a gas crisis. So far, 2018 has been a big year for crossovers specifically with some big players posting big sales numbers and others surprising us out of nowhere. Sales statistics paint a clear picture of what the people want, but why is it that people want certain models so much more than others? Well, thatโ€™s what this list is all about. Weโ€™ve plucked sales statistics for crossovers through June of 2018 and will take a better look at each one individually below. Letโ€™s get to it.

Video: The Hoonigan Crew Catches Up With a 1,000-HP Drift Monster

By info@topspeed.com (Jonathan Lopez)


Remember when the drifting scene really sank its teeth into U.S. car culture? Remember all those naysayers who said it was just a short-lived fad? Join me as I laugh at their inability to see the long-standing awesomeness that is this artful motorsport. Okay, now that weโ€™ve got that out of the way, letโ€™s all revel in this red-white-and-blue โ€˜Vette smoke machine as it doles out four-figure horsepower numbers in a bid to do it sideways at the top of the drifting game.

The video comes courtesy of The Hoonigans YouTube channel, and features the backstage antics of Matt Field as he and his team from Falken Tire do their thing at Formula Drift Seattle. The vid is a bit on the longer side (a little over 20 minutes), and provides an inside look at what it takes to compete at top level of this amazing motorsport, not to mention loads of tandem battles on the race course. And, of course, being real life drifting, things donโ€™t exactly go as plannedโ€ฆ

Mercedes-AMG GT S by Creative Bespoke & ADV1 Wheels

By info@topspeed.com (Safet Satara)


As far as Mercedes-AMG GT goes, the S version may be the optimal one. Its power level doesnโ€™t start with the number four, but with five, and it does come with a bit more gear from the get-go compared to the entry-level AMG GT. No wonder, then, that it is one of the most popular options for tuning companies. Creative Bespoke from the U.S. included. They revealed their own tuning take on the Mercedes-AMG GT S, and it is rad, mad, and powerful.
