When it comes to maps, Google has already conquered Earth. Whether you need a bird's eye view of your neighborhood or a street-level glimpse at a storefront half the world away, Google can deliver it in seconds. So it's no wonder that after doing pretty much everything it possibly can to map our home planet, it set its sights skyward, and today the company announced it has added a total of 12 new worlds to Google Maps.

The all-new destinations include a whole host of moons scattered around our Solar System, including Europa, Titan, and the frigid Enceladus. Also on the list are the nearby Venus and the once-planet Pluto, and you can explore all of them with nearly the same freedom as the more remote areas of the Earth.

Walking Dead Season 8

The eighth season of AMC’s The Walking Dead premieres on October 22nd, but I can’t say I’m too excited about it, after last season. However, fans should know that the action should pick up significantly in the upcoming season, at least compared to the first part of season 7.

Razer Blade Stealth: 2017 MacBook Pro alternatives

For the last year, Razer's Blade Stealth has been the laptop of choice for any MacBook Pro refugees looking for more ports. Razer isn't big on waiting for updates, and today, the Blade Stealth is getting its third upgrade of 2017.

The laptop now comes with Intel's newest processor, the 8th-generation quad-core Intel Core i7 8550U. That might sound like a tiny spec bump that's not worth writing about, but Intel's latest generation of chips promises to be something special for laptops.

It's 2017, the world is in utter chaos, we don't have flying cars or a cure for the common cold, but we do have giant fighting robots. Where did we go wrong? It doesn't matter, obviously, because we have fighting robots now, and you can watch them battle tonight via Twitch. The US-based MegaBots Inc will be taking on their Japanese counterparts, Suidobashi Heavy Industry in a world-first mega-bot battle that has been brewing for years, and nobody really know what's going to happen.

The bots, which have been designed, prototyped, upgraded, and finalized for battle, are some seriously intimidating pieces of machinery. MegaBots' creation, called Eagle Prime, stands an incredible 16 feet tall and weighs in at 12 tons, while the Japanese bot, called Kuratas, weighs in at over four tons and has a lower profile. This is going to be amazing.
